We had gone to another restaurant that was too dressy so decided to walk down the street to this one. My husband got a pasta and seafood dish and I got eggplant. The waitress said the eggplant was not vegetarian but it was nothing but meat! I think I asked too many questions because she was not that friendly. It... More

This was my third visit to Lombardo's. It is a family owned restaurant with great service. I would suggest sticking to authentic Italian dishes for a truly excellent meal. The regular tomato sauce is not vegetarian, and is rich and silky on the tongue. While there are no pieces of meat in the sauce, you will savor the wonderful flavor... More

Once again the folks at Lombardo's goes over the top. Four of us for dinner, and not a plate left untouched. Every course saw empty plates. From apps, to desert the food is always so good here. Right up from the Lancaster Arts Hotel makes location great. Best Italian food in the area. Being a native NYer this place reminds... More

Located in a rather unassuming building, Lombardo's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Lancaster. We have been there many times, and today's excursion was a spur of the moment visits for lunch. Normally we come for dinner, so we are used to having to have reservations, but for lunch we were able to walk right in and get... More

I favor local restaurants over chains when traveling and depend on Trip Advisor to find good spots. Fresh veal is one of may favorite dishes so while in Lancaster I looked up the " Best veal in Lancaster" and Trip Advisor recommended Lombardo's. The reviewers were correct. The veal was excellent as was the sauce. The serving was also quite... More

My entire experience at this restaurant was amazing. The decor was beautiful and the service was great. They have a large wine list and a great selection of Italian dishes. The food was delicious and authentic, freshly made pasta! I highly recommend this place to anyone! We will be back!

Visited today with two family members. Decor is plain and unimpressive. This place can hold, it appears, up to 250 or so people. But the men's bathroom can only be used by ONE person at a time. UNFORGIVABLE! That is completely inconsiderate to your customers, and you need to invest in an upgrade of your men's room! When I spend... More

I have been to Italian Restaurants in Baltimore, NY, Philadelphia and Boston. I have had great meals in all these different cities, but no gravy compares to theirs. Their Cannelloni, Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan and homemade Rum Cake are all excellent. We have recently moved to Florida and have not found any restaurant that compares to Lombardo's. We have been going... More

My wife and I were vacationing in the Lancaster area stopped into Lombardo's. It was a good choice. The food was excellent, much better than any Italian restaurant in our home area in southeast Michigan. If we return to Lancaster, we will go back to Lombardo's.
