It all started with two childhood friends. John Thompson and Paul Lore grew up two houses down from each other in New York. The two even started school together and were in the same kindergarten class.
That friendship has lasted for 45 years and now, the friends and business partners are opening a new Italian eatery in Leland. Both are excited to bring something new to the community.
“Gondolfo was Paul’s father’s name," Thompson said. "He was a very special man, and we wanted a name that would inspire us as well as bring his name to the community."
