Was hoping to find some home style Italian cooking but Lombardi's was pretty bland. Cute little dining room looked promising. Garlic bread had great garlic smell and was warm and crusty but no buttery flavor. The house salad had a handful of greens, fair for the $4 price, but topped with many onions and beets!? No description of salad in... More

If you don't expect a fine dining Italian experience, Lombardi's will not disappoint you. An extensive menu offers all you would expect to find, including some good pizzas, and a selection of beer and wine. The food is tasty, portions ample, prices reasonable, and wait staff could not be friendlier. As on previous visits, Lombardi's was busy at dinner time,... More

I had a meatball sandwich. It was terrible. The meatball was cut into maybe 1/8" slices in a single layer on an over toasted (edges burnt) French roll. Thus the filling portion was very thin and flavorless. There is no sense of biting into a meatball. The tasteless glop of cheese was present only in the middle of the sandwich... More

The food here was so-so, we had to get up and ask for refills when we were the only ones in the restaurant, and it was overpriced. Don't go if you're thirsty, they even charge for water (due to water shortage, but there are tons of restaurants to choose from that don't do this). The restaurant itself reminds me of... More

I found the seafood ravioli good, my friend found her pasta with meat sauce good. Neither thought it was exceptional. I will try the pizza the next time.

We started at the Steak and Pub in Cambria, but left due to prices and lack of any fish dishes...I'm so glad we did. This small and cozy italian place blew it out of the water. The menu was extensive and the prices were more than reasonable. Outstanding and friendly service along with EXCELLENT food!

After a long day at the Hearst castle, and swimming. It was nice to order a pizza, a salad, and some drinks (15min), to take back to the hotel and watch a movie with the kids to unwind... Thin crust, Lombardi special. Nice and light with all the heavy meals we've been eating. Their home made dressing was great too.

Lombardi's is good food by good decent people trying to make an honest living. This is not going to be some high priced fancy European style meal, or even a NYC or L.A. fine dining experience, but it does meet the needs of the customer. We tried several different items from the menu and everything was good. If you want... More

Stopped here after visiting Hearst Castle. It's in a really cool little town, and the portions are nice and big and the food is great! Cool to walk around and explore the town.

This is a good spot for a reasonably priced and tasty pasta. This is not gourmet - just rib sticking decent food served by a friendly server. We were looking to eat late in an early eating town and not spend a pile of money. We were welcomed, warmly, despite it being nearly closing time. Food was good - no... More
