Had pizza and and their salad bar. Enjoyed both but nothing extraordinary about it just straightforward classic pizza and salad. Quick, friendly efficient service. I would return to try a couple different things that looked good on the menu.

My family and I eat at Gondola Restaurant on a regular basis. My grandson says their hamburgers can't be beat. My daughter and I go there when we're in the mood for steak. It's delicious. Seasoned so well and so tender!

I tried to order from menu, but no one came to the table. The buffet had white iceberg lettuce. The creamy salads (eg pasta salad) was OK. But the main entrees were lasagna and burger steak. The lasagna was out and was heavily cheese. This restaurant's popularity perhaps indicts the rest of the town's restaurants as being even worse.

My wife and I stopped in for a late dinner, we had a young lady for our server who was very kind and friendly. She gave us great service. The food was very good and fresh, the portions were a good size and most important it was quite there. Nice meal.

Better than expected. The salad bar was nice. It offered all the necessities a salad bar should have. I also ordered the spaghetti with marinara sauce. The portion was huge and the taste was okay. Service was excellent.

Following our heinous dining experience at this establishment in October 2015, my husband and I were hesitant to visit again in December 2016. However, following a mishap at the local Taco Bell, we decided to risk a small breakfast. How can anyone mess up breakfast? we asked ourselves. Well, here's how Gondola messed up breakfast at the breakfast bar: 1.... More

Hoping for a glass of wine and some pasta for lunch...no wine, no alcohol...but no problem! They had an awesome buffet lunch, and a terrific Greek salad. The food was plentiful, fresh and tasty. Pricing was good too! Service was fantastic. Recommend you stop in here!

Gondola Resturant is a wonder place to dine. The food is always excellent and the price is great. I heartily recommend the Delmonico steak which is cooked over open flame for a delicious everytime dinner. The catfish dinner is wonderful too. They offer a full soup and salad bar during dinner and lunch has a full food buffet and salad... More

We were seated for more than 15 minutes before someone came to get our drink order. We were getting up to leave when a server saw us. She was not even assigned to our table, but nicely took our order. Other severs would walk by and comment on how long we had been waiting. Blaming the person that sat us.... More

Love the grilled chicken and side of spaghetti with salad bar. The petite sirloin is also great. If you have room try the baklava or the carrot cake.
