Ok Meal

We weren't interested in a big fancy meal and Lombardi's looked interesting. I had a simple house salad and the cheese pizza and my wife had the soup of the day. For what we wanted it satisfied us. Service was good and efficient.

We had the meat pizza. It was thin crust, tasty and pretty good. We did not have occaisons to use the restrooms so we cannt comment on what some reviewers wrote. The service was attentive.

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

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 updating of... 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
