Old Style Italian Restaurant in the Best Way

We were looking for a locally owned restaurant for a good dinner. We also like Italian. Lombardo's was recommended by the staff at the Courtyard. Their suggestion was spot on. The food was great and the service by Karen was outstanding. They made us feel like our visit was appreciated. I highly... read more

I don't understand why anyone would go to Olive Garden in Lancaster when you've got Lombardo's, an authentic Italian restaurant where the pasta is made fresh and to order. My partner loves vodka sauce, and even though it wasn't on the menu, the chef whipped it up for him and it was delicious. My favorite is the manicotti - love,... More

We have never had a bad experience at this old Lancaster restaurant. However, having read several bad reviews, when I called for reservations for our rather large group, I mentioned that we would like to be assured of good service. Our dinner was Saturday August 8th. Not only did we get good service, we got exceptional service with two very... More

The first time was wonderful. The owner Mike made sure we enjoyed. The servings were huge and the hearty meat sauce was perfectly seasoned! Then 2 weeks later we were back from Boston and he helped us serve 60 people at a party.The food was just as good and very reasonably priced. Would not think twice about going back!

My husband and I went out for date night. The service was great as was the homemade ravioli, the salmon was cooked to perfection and the Tiramisu was the best we have ever had.

If the owner of Lombardo's will get on Tripadvisor and promise to hire an Italian person to procure and prepare the food in their kitchen you might try it. Otherwise, the food is absolutely terrible. My daughters and I left three quarters of our so called Italian Food on our plates and got out of there as fast as we... More

Old time landmark for Italian food in Lancaster. The restaurant needs to be updated and it didn't have a upbeat atmosphere. The room was dark and the service was slow. Food was just OK, sauce lacked fresh taste, more like a store prepared sauce.

We took my aunt and uncle here for their 50th wedding anniversary. This has been their favorite restaurant for 30 years. I called the restaurant several weeks before our reservation and asked if they had a cake or something for the anniversary. I got a no answer and they were not willing to do anything to help in this area.... More
