In 1929, an Italian family immigrated to Brooklyn, New York, and started a business using fresh vegetables, premium ingredients and a slow cooking process—made the way they would serve their own family. More than 85 years later, we continue with their approach, maintaining the philosophy that Ingredients Come First.™

Apart from its old-world Italian charm, the gondola embodies elegance, romance and a deliberate slowness. After hours of rushing, stressing and worrying, our sauces transform a simple meal into something relaxing and enjoyable. We use only the finest ingredients and a slow kettle-cooking process to give our pasta sauce an authentic homemade taste, so you don’t have to make it yourself. So take a ride with us, slow down and taste what life has to offer.

Supplement of the Month - Quercetin


                                    Quercetin has antiviral activities

   Quercetin’s potential antiviral properties have been investigated in numerous studies and preliminary research suggests that the bioflavonoid might inhibit the ability of some influenza viruses to enter cells, which would help to prevent infection. Quercetin’s possible antiviral effects appear to be related to an ability to help prevent a virus from replicating itself and to cause infection. It does this by inhibiting polymerases, proteases, and reverse transcriptase, suppressing DNA gyrase, and binding viral capsid proteins.

   There is also evidence that vitamin C and quercetin have a synergistic antiviral action because of their overlapping immunomodulatory properties and because vitamin C can ‘recycle’ quercetin, increasing its efficacy. In return, quercetin and other bioflavonoids help vitamin C to be used effectively by the body and increase the effectiveness of vitamin C by slowing down its breakdown.
