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

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
