We have been here before for lunch and it was perfect. My family and I had dinner last night and it was awful. Our server smelled like an ash tray and Marijuana, our salad was full of water, the bruschetta app was made on French bread, no brischetta was even on that plate. My husband was thirsty the whole meal,... More

Portions were large - food was great Italian food - salad was fresh and tasty. The only thing that wasn't good was the Salmon salad - the fish was overcooked. Our table got the lasagna - Fantastic, - porkchops - good, veggie pizza - great, pep - pizza. Food came quickly and our server was attentive

Great authentic Italian food. It is a stop we make when visiting Lake City. You won't be disappointed. Wait staff very knowledgeable and friendly. They do have Greek dishes also but I select only the Italian-my heritage

Can't rate the wait staff as our order was a to go order. The food was really good. However, the desserts are fantastic! The slices of cake they give you are large enough for two people to share.

Gondolier offers some of the most authentically Italian tasting dishes over other chains that have Americanized the sauce by packing it full of salt. For the casual diner it may seem a little bland, but from my experience this comes far closer to real Italian food than anywhere else in Lake City. They have an extensive menu with options for...

I was pleasantly surprised with this place! It was a nice sit down place with yummy comfort Italian. I tried their specialty the baked spaghetti gondolier and was great! Staff was very nice and have a great selection of desserts.

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
