Lots of choices on the menu so we all tasted each other's. The pasta dishes were good as was the bbq pizza. The spinach and chicken stomboli was too heavy with spinach which took away the taste. Staff was friendly. Be prepared to study the menu on your first time there.

It is very old school and hasn't been updated lately but that is what I like best about it! Everyone is so nice and the Pizza is fantastic! The salad bar is always being restocked and I have never seen wilted lettuce every! My favorite place in Athens

I have been eating here since I was a kid. It's always pretty good. Athens is small town USA and I moved away long ago, but every time I return, the Gondolier can take me back to my days at the old MCHS! Go Cherokees!

I visited the Gondolier in Athens, TN, on 03/17/17, and had the pizza / salad buffet. If you've never been to this location - here are a few things to note. 1) The pizza ovens are not the same in all Gondolier restaurants - this location is one of the best for pizza crust, 2) If you like Thousand Island...

Always a favorite for our household. Good variety of food at good prices. Try the Souvlaki wrap, a tasty, warm wrap filled with grilled pork pieces and vegetables. The chicken wrap is great too. Yum.

Don't go anywhere in town for pizza, it's not worth it. Get it here! I love this place! The only issue I have is that the salad bar, I assume, has MSG as it gives me horrible gas.

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
