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.

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.

If you like grill chicken you need to order the philly chicken. It is marinated chicken topped with mushrooms, onions, and cheese. I could eat this several days a week. Excellent!! This is my favorite meal in Warren county. Very nice and clean restaurant and most of the time the wait staff is good but occasionally not. The deserts look... More

The service was terribly slow and out server would just disappear for long periods of time. The food was of poor quality and over priced. Their one saving grace is their desserts. Their cakes are wonderful. If I ever go back it will be for dessert only.

We were looking for a new place for dinner with my father. He wanted to try this place and it was great. Lots of choices on the menu, but we picked the Tour of Italy. It was enough for two meals! It must all be good because all the meals on the tables around us were different. Our food was... More

This establishment has the best steaks and grilled chicken that you can put in your mouth! There's a HUGE selection of desserts that are handmade. It's hard to decide which one to choose! I highly recommend eating here.
