La Gondola in Mansfield serves fresh pasta and other Italian favorites in a cozy, refined setting. Live piano nights treat guests to the sound of music while they sip on beverages selected from the expansive wine list. Low-lighting and sleek, modern decor gives La Gondola an intimate feel that sets the tone for a date night.
Aside from traditional pasta dishes like the linguini shrimp scampi, there are also plenty of veal, steak and chicken options like the Vitello parmigiana, steak or the pollo limone. La Gondola also offers appetizers, salads and soups. Be sure to ask your server about the available soup of the day and any daily or weekly special that might be available.
Good solid food. Great service.
Love this place! The food and the service!
This is a gem of a place. Had a business colleague in from Detroit and he said it was the best veal he's ever had. I agree. Service is great, good selection from the bar, really good garlic bread, and love the house dressing on the salad. Mains are always good...
We love their chicken rollatini and the service was the best we have ever had there.
Made a reservation for a nice table since it was a 20th anniversary celebration. We are not from the area and couldn't get away so we wanted a nice place with Italian food. Through the reservation I asked for a nice table but when we got there it took a bit for the hostess to greet us and then she immediately grabbed two menus without asking us if we had reservations. I had to tell her that we did and that I asked for a decent table. Nope. The atmosphere was really loud and I wear hearing aids so it was very difficult for me. It took quite a while to get a waiter, and a long time in between drinks and courses but the food was very good. Our waitress (owner?) was pleasant when she finally showed up. It was weird, the hostess kept running back and forth in front of us, and the bread boy was just sauntering. All in all the staff seemed disjointed and other waitresses were picking up the slack for others? Not really sure if they were understaffed but the food was really good and I probably will go back but not for a special dinner, more likely for a leisurely lunch. If you have the time to spend there and don't have hearing issues this is your place.
Micky is outstanding. Food is original and flavorful. They don’t rush out courses, it’s a perfect pace. Will definitely be back
Always a good meal . Mansfield’s finest Italian restaurant .
What a fabulous gem! We had been looking for an Italian restaurant that was not a chain, and La Gondola far exceeded our expectations! True family Italian cooking! And that bread! Excellent wine list, as well!
This is our favorite Italian restaurant in all of the Metroplex. Our fav used to be the Italian Villa in Arlington, and it closed. We just found out that one of the owners, the chef, opened La Gondola after Italian Villa closed, so we are/were SO excited! Highly recommend.
This is a hidden "treasure" we stumbled onto several years ago. The food is always excellent and the service is perfect. Ambiance is just right. All in all, a great dining experience! Our friends loved it too!
Very good place to eat and great food and staff. Good atmosphere good prices
We love the food the service and the atmosphere! Every time
The food at La Gondola is always fantastic and the service always prompt. Because it is on the pricey side of average, my wife and I only visit maybe 3 times a year for special occasions, or like this trip, with friends. We have never been disappointed by anything we have ordered and once received a recommendation for their limoncello cake, and now it is a tradition when we go. If we ever have a complaint about the place it is that it is so popular, it is always packed and the noise level when combined with the live performer, can make it difficult to hold a conversation with our quieter speaking friends. It is still highly recommended, check it out.
Food was amazing! Service was great and we had a party of 12 ppl.
We just relocated to Mansfield in May and this was the first good meal we have had here. The service was excellent and the food was great.
Birthday. Fun but loud. Food prices don’t match quality. Great service, super generous server.
Always an exceptional time. Unfortunately, the ladies restroom was dirty.
La Gondola has consistently good food. We’ve been going to this restaurant since it was Italian Villa in south Arlington, so more than 20 years. The garlic bread is yummy and irresistible - no way you will be able to stop at one piece.
This is a really good restaurant. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. Highly recommend La Gondola!
A group of 8 went there on a Saturday night to celebrate my 60th. The food was fabulous. Our waiter Mickey was great !! He suggested several appetizers that we loved!!
Amazing and authentic
Really great Mussels & Steak Diane was on point. Our waitress Alexandria/Alejandria(?) was lovely with attentive service and great suggestions when asked. We will be back. Wishing they had Coke products instead of RC & wishing thy had a better moscato than “Cupcake”. Overall great experience!
Good food, good service and enjoyable atmosphere for friendly conversation.
Definitely too loud for our business meeting. Waitress was trying to be sensitive to our conversation, but it left us feeling ignored. Food was pretty good.
Best Garlic bread ever eaten, loved the sausage wrapped with chicken. I’m a big guy and had to take a doggie bag. Wife loved her shrimp stuffed w! Crabmeat and pasta. Off the beaten path, but worth the drive.
Dined by myself while wife and daughter continued their post-graduation tour of the US ;)
Had linguini vongole (white clam sauce) which was the most attractive presentation of that dish I have ever had, and I've had it many times throughout the US. Clams in their shells ringed the pasta, which had ample minced clams and a very nice sauce. The restaurant was packed on a Friday night, and I enjoyed the live entertainment, even if it was a touch loud. Good service, good food...and a great first-time experience!
The food was remarkable and the service was delightful. Looking forward to going back.
Wonderful staff and great food. Been here multiple times and never disappointed!!
The food was excellent, as it always is. I could eat the Steak Diane everyday of the week. The waitstaff was stretched a little thin and service was slow this last visit. However, that won’t stop me from coming back.
Wonderful. They made my mom and sister their favorite dish which was off menu. As usual, everything was wonderful. It pays to know the staff and be a loyal long-time customer. We were there for Father’s Day and my husband’s birthday.
Wonderful dining experience for 6 of us. 2 of our party were from New York City, know their way around great food. They were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our waiter was friendly and made some excellent recommendations for our out-of-town-guests.
I am very disappointed that they have a smoking area outside by the main entrance! Not a good first impression. Neither is the hostess standing and texting on her cell phone.
Also, disappointed in cold food. Salads and bread are fabulous!
The food never disappoints. We have gone a couple of times and every time the food has been excellent. The service is excellent Suzy and her sons are very attentive but not overbearing. My only complaint this time was the hostess who made us feel bad that we had my mother in a wheelchair. Sadly we were out for her birthday dinner. We made a reservation as well as I called to confirm. The hostess made us feel like we were inconveniencing are putting her out of the way because of having to accommodate the wheelchair. We have been there before and never have had an issue.
We live to eat here. The good is excellent, service is very good and pleasant. Always enjoy our time there.
So delicious and great wait staff! We have several favorites here!
The food was beyond amazing. The service was very good. Highly recommend!
Called before we made reservations and were told they had gluten free pasta and options. Got seated and found that they DO NOT accommodate gluten free at all. Messed up a mother's day meal for my wife who must have gluten free due to celiac disease. VERY disappointing.
Have been here several times and each time have been impressed. The food options are many and all dishes I have tried have been superb. Our last visit was with a group of seven all of whom were served something different from the menu and all praised their meals. Quantity and quality is just right. No room for dessert although I suspect that would also have been terrific!
Great food and service.
Fantastic, as always... service, quality of food (especially the fresh bread) and meal value!
