Great dinner at Lombardi's

On my second night in Cambria, I decided that I refused to spend $28 on a dinner entree at one of the fancy restaurants lining the main drag - so I decided to go back to Lombardi's, where I had a really decent meal a few years before. Yes, Lombardi's is a hole-in-the-wall and they could use some... read more

Spending a couple days on the California coast is always a pleasure. My wife and I and another couple had been dropping $200. for main meals with beverage when Lombardi's caught our eye. We were greeted and seated promptly. The restaurant smelled great, pure Italian. When the waiter presented the menus and wine list, he informed us that there would... More

We stopped in Cambria on our way from LA to San Francisco and randomly chose this restaurant but it was seriously the best ever and our waitress was so nice and energetic. We had the bruschetta and pepperoni pizza and both were amazing. My brother had the fettuccine alfredo and he said it was the best he ever had (he's... More

The decor is the usual tacky Italian type but the dining room appeared clean. We got take out. They said it would be about 15 minutes but it took them about 30. My antipasto salad was pretty good, and my husbands gluten free penne was also pretty good. If you want Italian and are in Cambria its fine, but there... More

Awful in every aspect. The men's urinal was full of urine, inches high on account of some sort of blockage? The women's sole toilet, just meters away in the same dismal bathroom, did not flush. The floor was awash with urine. The meals were distinctly unpalatable. The seafood ravioli consisted of three slimy pieces of ravioli topped with canned crab... More

We have been eating at Lombardi's for years, nearly every time we visit Cambria. The food was tasty and we enjoyed our meals. The portions were satisfactory, but a bit pricey (like most sit down meals in Cambria). The service was exceptional and the restaurant was nice and clean. We had three different pasta dishes and would eat here again... More

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
