Voted City's Best’s Best Italian Food in Chicago in 2010, La Gondola offers Italian favorites, saucy pizzas, and ambitiously portioned pastas. Temper the appetites of calf-sized stomachs with fried calamari ($9.50) or homemade mozzarella sticks ($6) before settling down with La Gondola's signature rigatoni boscaiola, a pasta dish coated in cream tomato sauce, fresh mushrooms, and sautéed italian sausage ($13.50). La Gondola's specialty pizzas come heaped with fresh ingredients (starting at $15 for a 12" pie), including the quattro formaggi, with a blend of four cheeses, and the barbecue chicken pizza spackled with the eatery's own barbecue sauce. For more hand-holdables, made-to-order sandwiches are stacked on fresh italian loaves and include the eggplant parmesan sandwich, with a trio of fresh eggplant layers, marinara, and a duo of cheeses ($8).

Importing Sicilian flavors to Chicago since 1984, La Gondola also adorns its esteemed eateries with Italian-themed décor, including photos of gondolas and elegant white-clothed tables. Or call ahead to the Ashland location for speedy delivery and gorge on a heaping mountain of tiramisu or homemade cannoli in the comfort of your own closet.

La Gondola Italian Restaurant

Executive Chef Andrew McGuire tops tables at La Gondola Italian Restaurant with heaping platters of pizza and hearty pasta dishes, earning the intimate bistro Zagat ratings since 1991. Made-from-scratch sauce and more than 25 toppings stand ready to bedeck hand-tossed pizzas, which sail to tables in extra-thin, thin, pan, or stuffed crusts. Made from a secret Roman recipe guarded by on-staff gladiators, the stracciatella soup warms bellies alongside house-made minestrone, setting the stage for the signature rigatoni boscaiola and glassfuls of wine or beer.
