My husband and I stopped there on a return home trip. He loves Italian and I have to eat gluten free. Our waitress, Kaley, was very informative about the gluten free options. I got chicken marsala with mashed potatoes instead of pasta, husband got cannelloni. We both had delicious food and just what we wanted! Easy to find, on the... More

I ordered a whole White Raspberry Cake for my mothers 84th birthday party. I gave them over a weeks notice and on Saturday when I called to see about getting it, their manger Steve gave me some lame story about how they had an ordering error. I would call it incompetent.. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THEIR RESTAURANT OR SERVICE. GS... More

We wanted a quick dinner with my elderly parents last weekend. This is not a upscale Italian place, but it was good. We had good salads, our antipasto salad was enough for 3-4 people, the pasta dishes were good. The fried mushrooms crunchy. They serve a nice basket of bread and sauce. No complaints, since there are so few places... More

When visiting my brother we opted for Italian for dinner and selected the Gondolier. WOW....what a great meal. Service was good, staff were friendly, and the food super good and plenty to eat. No shortage of food here. I had the Baked Chicken Florentine Cannelloni and a Caesar Salad and would highly recommend to anyone! It goes without saying that... More

We wanted a late and fast lunch and my wife's quilt guild ate here some months ago. We were travelling to Jacksonville and Lake City was on the way. The Gondolier has an incredibly wide menu, but we defaulted to good old pizza. The crust is thick at the edge and thin toward the middle--just a perfect proportion of cheese,... More

Originally discovered Gondolier in Atlanta area. So glad they are near G'ville. We love the Greek Salad with gyro, and other Greek dishes. Italian food also very good. Husband's favorite is the Meat Lovers Pizza. The desserts are great.

I had the AUCE soup and salad special which was Pasta e fagioli, meaning "pasta and beans", a traditional Italian dish plus a large Caesar salad. My wife had Eggplant Parmesan with Spaghetti. Large breadsticks and red sauce were served as an appetizer. Both meals were excellent and in large portions. The service was very good and the prices were... More

This maybe a chain restaurant but the food tastes more like home made. I had the veal Marsala the wife had the veggie Fettuccine Alfredo. Both were excellent. Bread sticks and marinara comes with dinner as well as salad. Not endless like OG but better tasting. We would definitely eat here again and stop at any of their other locations.
