Lomeli's is a local place, where everyone is welcomed warmly and told "see you tomorrow" on the way out! The food is great... the togo orders are huge. Pizza is a must, but I also love the 'dinner for 2' which gets you antipasta salad...More

Have ordered catering here, and eaten in here. Very classic, homestyle Italian food. It's that place where you run into people you know. It can be quite cozy inside, that but that adds to its charm. I always get the combos.
