I love their menu. Everything from pizza, Italian dishes and salad to chicken fingers and. Sanwhiches . I love the pizza and salad and the cucumber dip on the chicken wrap. Great value service and atmosphere.

Several of us shared a pizza and some had pasta dishes. I know the pizza was good and didn't hear any complaints about the other dishes.

I have been going to Gondolier for years. I can honestly say I have only had one meal out of those years that I didn't like. Found out it was a new cook. I have always enjoyed myself there not only because of the laid back atmosphere but the staff and waitresses have always been fantastic to me. Honestly, if... More

I've eaten several times over the years, the last being just a little over a week ago and most every time there is something that makes the meal go south. The last time was a crazy long wait for my order (which has happened before), other times have been wrong orders, missing salads, an issue with the cashier over a... More

Love the food here. They don't offer a chicken souvlaki on pita so I have to tell them what I want exactly and it always turns out great! Their tsatziki sauce is amazing! So is their pizza! The staff is great with the exception of a few. If you go, take home a dessert especially the cheesecake. You won't be... More

I've been going to "the Gondo" ever since I can remember. The service has always been great and the food is really good. The pizza is excellent and they offer dine in and take out. I recommend getting the pizza and salad bar.

This restaurant has it all from single serve to a gathering of friends. At lunch it's real busy they have a pizza bar plus a full menu the wait staff is friendly and quick the food is hot and good and there's ample parking. If you're a dessert person the cakes are out of this world.

Gondolier is good for a quick lunch with their buffet. It is a good place to have a family dinner or a birthday party or just a tasty dinner. Their pizza can't be beat. The service is always excellent. Their desserts are to die for. Most recently attended a family and friends celebration for my nephew for a wonderful achievement.

Thank Pat H
