If you arelooking for the neighborhood dive to patronize, welcome to Gondolier. If you are looking for high end service and ingredients, hop back over to Turkey Creek and get lost in the top edge restaurants.  Gondolier Italian Restaurant feels local for food, but is clearly has no local connection as far as ownership, American ownership, or patronage in the local economy.
