Great food! Even better service! Great price

The deluxe pizza was absolutely amazing and my GF's spaghetti bolognese was really good also! We enjoyed the house wine that was at a very good price! The staff were really friendly. It felt like home! We will come back during our next stay in L.A.! From Dan and Fannie (Montreal)

We spent the night in the area and the hotel recommended lomeli's. The food was amazing. We shared a meal and they separated it on 2 plates for us. I would HIGHLY recommend it if you're in the area. Service was fast, friendly, efficient and attentive.

Lomelli's has been around for as long as I can remember in Gardena. Amazing pizza. Excellent shrimp scampi. Haven't had a bad dish of pasta since I've been coming here. My only gripe is the place is a bit small and it's not unusual to have to wait for a table. That's why I usually call in for a take... More

Every time we are in this area we try to make it to Lomeli's. Everything is outstanding. We love the pizza. Last night we had half fresh basil and half pep. The pink sauce for pasta is so 'perfect'. You will want to order the entire menu. The atmosphere is classic. Everyone makes you feel welcome. I love how they... More

Lomeli's in Gardena has been a neighborhood fixture for over four decades. The family style food has always been consistently very good at reasonable prices. Whenever we want pasta dishes in red sauce or an excellent pizza, Lomeli's is our go to place.

You will not be blown away by the location or the the appearance of the of the dinning area, but the food is wonderful. This is a very small restaurant, wine and beer only, very few booths. The menu is extensive with many varieties of Italian dishes. All the meals are very simply presented and the portions are plentiful. The... More

We were looking for a restaurant and found this one kind of hidden, which seemed closed. We found it was open and what a surprise! We enjoyed it so much. Excelent food, amazing service.

If you have been to Italy, this is not the place for you, but if you want ample portions of very familiar choices in an atmosphere that looks like an "Italian" restaurant, then try it. It's usually quite busy.

While it's wonderful you're a fan of our dishes, it sounds like you were a bit disappointed about our authenticity. My family brought these recipes from Italy, so I can promise you they are Italian through and through! What would you add to or change about your meal?
