Located in the former Joey's Brickhouse space, the second La Gondola location serves the same Southern Italian fare as the original Ashland Avenue location -- plus pasta, steaks and fresh seafood. After being seated in the eatery's dining room -- decorated with a framed napkin signed by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and a check signed by Sammy Davis, Jr. -- diners snack on warm bread that's brought to the table with extra virgin olive oil and pecorino romano cheese. The Lakeview eatery's large menu features thin-crust, stuffed and pan pizza, and more than 100 different pasta dishes such as rigatoni with sausage and tomato cream sauce.
