We started out for the local Thai restaurant that is closed for the month. We had not been to Gondola in years, and we probably forgot why. This place has not been renovated or cleaned up in years. It is the ultimate shabby chic restaurant...More

The Gondola is a long favorite restaurant, and has many followers. It is family owned, and has been for years. The menu has something for everyone, and is casual dining. It could use some updating to make it brighter inside.

This was one of the worst places that I have eaten. The place is old and it shows. The food was awful. I would be embarrassed to bring anyone there to eat. I'm surprised that they are still in business. Don't bother with this restaurant...More
