We ordered some garlic bread to start. The garlic bread was very basic and had no real garlic on it, just garlic powder. I would not prefer it again. I had the Spicy Tuscan. It was spicy and full of flavor. My son had the classic spaghetti with a meatball. The noodles were great, but the sauce was just okay and the meatball was extra. The waitress was pleasant and checked in a few times.
Is the chef Italian?? Pasta was over cooked and not salted. My “spicy Italian sauce” was neither spicy nor Italian. To improve the flavor of our pasta - we ordered sides of the other sauces (sweet italian, Alfredo) sweet italian was okay, Alfredo was not. Everything we order was tasteless or not Italian tasting. Even extra red chili pepper and salt didn’t help. We left most of our food. I should have heeded to the other reviews and skip this place. I usually, hate wrti g these kinds of reviews. But just don’t want customers wasting their hard earned money on no quality food. I hope they read this and make some changes to their menu. Pic of food we left behind.
Krysta was our waitress both times we been there. Her service is excellent very friendly. The atmosphere is very welcoming. You can see they take pride in their restaurant. So the lasagna is excellent
Absolutely love this place! I never get spaghetti and meatballs out, as I believe I can make it better but with the Gondolier’s homemade pasta, sauce and meatballs it is amazing! That’s right HOMEMADE PASTA who does that anymore?! I am also in love with the perfect chicken parmigiana with the right amount of crispy breading and the amazing slightly spicy marinara sauce. We got lasagna, chicken parmigiana, garlic knots, spaghetti and meatballs, and pizza with a perfect thin but chewy crust! This place is a must try if you are in Longmont or Boulder. Oh… and we were in town visiting for three days and went back two days in a row! It is that good!
We called ahead to hopefully eat outside (covid concerns) and they said on the phone they don't have the staff for outside service and that should have been a red flag. We were hoping for good Italian so we went ahead and ordered takeout instead. I have been a fan of the Boulder shop since college and they had flavorful hand made pasta and sauce that I've always enjoyed. The Longmont location does not live up to their foundations. The "spicy" marinara was bland and flavorless. The noodles were overcooked and flavorless (did they forget to salt the cooking water?). the worst of all, thogh was the reason we came and that was the fettuccine Alfredo that literally made my teenage child gag and dismiss themselves from the meal it was so poorly made. I rarely throw away a $16 plate of food but this was the exception. I couldn't even force myself to finish it. Finally, entertaining as it was, they packaged the spahetti separate from the sauce and it congeled into a freakish leaning tower (picture attached) and that probably says it all. I will look forward to the location going out of business and maybe being replaced with an Olive Garden or some other mediocre Italian chain.
