Foursquare Tips

  • Their rigatoni and stuffed gnocchi are amazing. The Ashland location is small and quaint but I think better food than belmont. The guy on thurs night is a hoot too
  • Try the Stracciatella soup. Awesome!
  • When I'm looking for some Italian comfort food, my usual go-to dish is the Rigatoni Boscaiola at La Gondola. This pasta dish strikes the right balance of richness without being heavy.
  • Gondola chicken
  • Best Italian in the city. You can't go wrong here!
  • I own it, friend me up, if dining in please call ahead for a reso. Dining area is small and fills up quick.
  • Great for takeout. Dining room is VERY small. You should absolutely make reservations. Showing up and expecting a table is a bad idea. The specials are very good and worth it usually.
  • Check their facebook fan page for awesome weekly specials.
  • I had the rigatoni boscaiola and it was very good, but it was an awful lot of pasta - enough to feed 3 people.
  • Still great food... adding red clam sauce to my list. Don't know what they're thinking offering a much smaller menu now when you eat in than for takeout. To me, it makes no sense. Do get takeout.
  • Eggplant and chicken parmesan, gnocchi piemontese... Have tried many other things as well. Good pizza in Chicago style thin crust sense. Tasty neighborhood Italian, somewhat of an institution.
  • Disgusting food.
  • Amazing as always.
  • Outstanding...
  • D is the best waiter we have ever had anywhere!
  • Love love love the rigatoni boscaiola!
  • This place is a gem! And so is D, your server! Love him and the food! The best!
  • Definitely RSVP, and ask for D (he's an awesome server!) Menu is QUITE delectible.
  • The gnocchi was great! The restaurant is super intimate and cute!
  • Hands down, the BEST grilled Calamari these lips have ever tasted ... (5 stars)
