Ordered takeaway today. Pizza was was ok but pasta with prawns overcooked and whiteout the flavor. And we never got the side salad. If they serve same food at the restaurant I would never go there.

Top food, very good menu. In a good location in the Square at the end of Union Street. However, when i thought i was being clever and ordered my starter in Italian the waiter looked at me gone out!!! To be fair he was very friendly which is always good in a Restaurant. Will definately eat here again.

Thank you for your kind words regarding the restaurant, its not easy finding Italian staff, we have 4 at the moment including our head chef Roberto, according to the records La Lombarda which opened 1922 is the oldest Italian restaurant using its original name, hopefully next time your in you will be attended to by one of our Italian staff....

Just recovering from my 50th birthday bash held at la Lombarda last night. Cannot speak highly enough of David and his staff who made it a great night by providing excellent service, a lovely buffet and were welcoming, friendly and engaging with everyone who attended. In these times when we are dominated by impersonal chain restaurants it is great to... More

Lovely restaurant with very good Italian food. We had the mussels, carpaccio, rib eye and Italian sausage/bean stew. Excellent quality meat and seafood. Staff attentive and pleasant. A must visit if your in Aberdeen 😃

Went here for the work Christmas lunch. The food was very tasty and the drink service was extremely good. Couldn't fault the staff, they dealt with a group of 50 folk very well. Service was fast and friendly. Everyone that went enjoyed themselves. Would highly recommend this for a meal.

Went for Christmas set meal. I understand the service could not be personal for a big party and will discount the service of the waiters. The food was a three course meal. I had a boring tasteless mozarella tomato salad, just dull. For my main, Veal and some spaghetti. Seriously, Veal? Its not even legal in the UK. So I... More

Thank you for your review, I must say I am a bit confused where it states you are a Senior reviewer, I would have thought that you would have known more about the subject, anybody who states that veal is illegal in the U.K. shows little knowledge of food laws. Your observation regarding our dessert, I don't know any Italian... More

A good Italian restaurant. The food is good and the service is pretty good. It is a little draughty but any night in Aberdeen probably is.

I ate at La Lombarda on the 7th of November. Great food and even better service. Special mention to Giulia, she was professional and fast although it was a very busy night.

Located on the end of Union street at castle gate I'm not sure why I hadn't visited here sooner. Certainly glad I ended up going though, had some fantastic pizza here before heading to the theatre, 3 of us ate with wine as well for about £40.
