This place is an old favorite of mine, though I moved to the other coast ten years ago. It is just as good as I remember, the pasta is fresh, the sauce, meatballs, and mushrooms are all very good. I like the smallish room and the old style setting. My fellow diners ordered other entrees and were all pleased. The... More

Pros: Baked eggplant sandwich to die for. Friendly service. Great value. Cons: Just an ordinary looking place, but the food makes you forget it. Suggestion: If nothing else, order the baked eggplant sandwich.

We went quite early on a midweek evening, so didn't expect a buzz, but it was dismally quiet. Pasta very ordinary and the sauces not very fresh tasting.

We went to Lombardi's because we fancied something different after over two weeks in the States. We were not disappointed and were served with the best meal we have had for some time, not only on our time in the US. The atmosphere was friendly and homely, it was reasonably priced and the pasta was some of the best we... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Cambria that wasn't seafood and decided to give this place a try. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's not the fanciest of places, but the food is pretty good. It's on a side street off the main drag. Order the antipasto salad or lasagna (which we saw most people eating). The... More

I had the jumbo shells with ricotta and basil which had a couple of grease pools in it though the taste was fine. It came with a lot of garlic bread which was heavy, heavy, heavy on garlic. My garlic loving family left it behind. The waitress couldn't have been more attentive or pleasant. We'll try it again based on... More

Little off the main street and doesn't have over the top curb appeal, but food was great. And the hostess was the most welcoming of people. We had driven a lot that Weds and by evening we wanted something simple for the kids. We checked Tripadvisor for help and were not let down. Food was hot, prompt and tasty. And... More

The pizza was thin-crusted (my favorite) with a delicious sauce and lots of tasty toppings. I ordered the sausage, pepperoni and onion pizza. The wonderful fragrance of good Italian food when you walk in the door is very enticing. Prices were reasonable, especially considering the fact this is a tourist town.

We enjoyed a fresh salad with good dressing. They were very willing to accomidating my vegan husband's dinner of eggplant Parmesan (special of the night) and I had the Canneloni (very tasty). Our server was awesome! Nothing fancy, but comfortable atmosphere. Very family friendly. Nice wine list.
