This place was taken over by Lucca's American Kitchen, which has received one 5 star rating after after another one.. Everything is perfection personified. You can not ask for anything better. The food , service and presentation are perfect. Bob Z, Leominster MA

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.
