Hi Sean, sorry to hear that, I've been here all night and we haven't had one complaint, did you call and speak to someone? if your dish wasn't up to par we would have made it right, I remember the spaghetti with white clam sauce going out too, And the chicken limone is only $16 each, if you were overcharged again I'm sorry but I never received a call, I'm the owner and answer all calls (compliment or problem) if you would like to discuss it further please feel free to call me here tonight until 1am, or Friday, Saturday or Sunday until 1am, I'll be gere.

Sorry again, hope we can make it right.

La Gondola Italian Restaurant
Ashland Wellington Plaza, 2914 N Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60657
I've spent thousands of dollars at this spot over the past 10 years. Initially, I liked La Gondola...its close to my house and they make a decent pizza. In recent years, I've noticed a decline in quality and a hike in pricing. Tonight I ordered Spaghetti with clams in a white sauce ($18). I was essentially buttered noodles with a tablespoon of canned clams and two clam shells on top. Seriously? Prior to tonight, I ordered two orders of lemon chicken ($40). Each order is a single chicken breast, split and pounded out. I was paired with a vegetable. This is very expensive for the quality and quantity.

Moral of the story, for this neighborhood and this pricing, the quality of the ingredients and the effort placed into preparation should be much higher. I'm going to take a break from this place and revisit in 6 months with high hopes of improvement.

I've been using InVision for several years now, they've installed 16 channel video security systems in 2 different businesses and my home, all 3 work great and their installers are neat, quick and have no problem answering all my questions, I've referred them to several friends and they all have the same feeling i do, I even referred a friend in Door County Wisconsin, he had a 32 channel installed and my friend not only saved money but is very happy with the system and service. That's what actually separates Raz from the others, from day 1 he has stood by his work and addressed issues the same day, service combined with value is a winning combination for businesses.

Great location, we had the unit above the offices, the AC didn't work really well compared to the other units we rented, at one point we had all units for a wedding, the staff was a little odd, 1 out of the 3 ladies we encountered was very nice, the other 2 were very abrasive and seemed like temps, first time we went down to drop off clothes we found in several drawers and the lady looked at me as if I just ate the last doughnut before fatcamp, the second lady was just as pleasant when I asked for a 2nd trash can liner, she scolded me and said I'll give you one more but there should have been a spare under the sink, that's funny we're here 9 days and 2 13 gallon liners should have been enough, Overall, the location is great, only steps to the beach and you have dedicated parking if you drive, we also had a golf cart the whole time and there was always a spot in front to leave charging overnight, i'm sure we'll be back but if it's only a few hundred more for a house on Golf Drive on the channel then I'd for sure take that over this seeing you had a private pool and boat dock.

Had my jacket stolen here, it was a closed door party, owner claims he already told me he doesn't have it, It was the first time i called, I'm sure it's not the first jacket that went missing there.

Not only the best prices on anything for your business but the customer service is second to none, they stand behind everything they sell new or used, they have come through on commercial equipment rentals for me with last minute catering for 300 people and made me look good, can't imagine buying from anyone else, they are the best.
