La Gondola Pizzeria
La Gondola Pizzeria has been in Market Square for 31 years. Sergio, owner, came to the U.S. with his parents when he was just 17 years old. Inspiration of opening his own pizza shop came from working at a local pizza shop when attending Pittsburgh University and his mother who has always worked in the restaurant business. You can find a wide variety of food on the menu from gourmet pizza to toasted hoagies, sides and salads. Sergio is always experimenting with new items to put on the menu, like the seafood hoagie (coming soon). The house salad dressing is a must to complete any salad from La Gondola. It’s so popular; Sergio decided to sell it by the quart so you can fulfill your craving at home! When dining, you may see local celebrities like the Steelers and Penguins that have occasionally stopped in; or you may see Bob, a lunch regular. Bob has been a loyal customer of La Gondola since it first opened. Don’t worry if you can’t make it for lunch, they are open until 8 p.m. so you can make it for dinner. La Gondola is located at 4 Market Square right beside Subway.
