Stopped off here for a meal on way to Los Angeles ready for our trip home after 4 weeks traveling Mexico and US. I can honestly say this is the worst meal we've experienced in 4 weeks of travel this time around. I can appreciate that they won't give customers a glass of water due to the water restrictions and... More

The menu said 'dough made fresh daily' but I don't believe it. It tastes like cracker crust frozen dough. The sauce was OK but the cheese lacked flavor. The price was comparatively high but would have been acceptable if the pizza was good. Pasta dishes on other tables looked big but I could not vouch for quality.

This past summer we had some friends who bought 2 pizzas and a large salad from Lombardi's as take out to our house. The pizzas were delicious and the salad was fresh and tasty. So we thought we would try their lunch special which was a combination of ravioli and tortellini with cheese and marinara sauce. My husband thought it... More

in town for the weekend, checking out the scarecrows. Came across this place on a side street. Menu /specials printed outside so you know what they offered, had the sausage in shells special, very good, with salad and bread, looking forward to trying other plates on another trip.

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.
