Very accommodating!

After finishing up from a late evening event, Lombardo's kindly stayed open for us after business hours to accommodate our group. The staff were very friendly and the food was terrific! They even introduced us to an adult beverage "chocolate cake" that was delicious. Thanks so much for staying open... read more

Every element of the meal showed a touch of pride in the culinary skill of the chef. Very well done! We were the last customer of the evening but they treated us like family.

While visiting Lancaster for a meeting I had the pleasure to dine at Lombardo's Italian American. Because we knew our meeting was going to end very late, the owner made special arrangements to stay open late just for our group. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming which was appreciated after a very long day of travel & meetings. The customer... More

Hubby wanted to treat me to an Italian dinner and not an Olive Garden for a special date night. This was our first (and last) visit. First, the waitress took forever to take our order, then she switched us to another waitress, then she forgot our appetizer and brought it out when we were almost done eating, the chicken parm...

We love Lombardo's and it's been our special place for celebrations since we were engaged there 30 years. I have never had a negative experience there and always good food and a very fair price. We celebrated my daughter's last chemo treatment there and had personal service from one of the original owners Mr. Dave Lombardo. I would highly recommend... More

My wife and I were part of a group of friends out for a Saturday evening dinner. Our reservation was for 6:00, but when we arrived, we had to wait because our table had been given to someone else. When everyone in our group had been served but me, the waitress indicated that she would go to find out where... More

Having established a Christmas Eve tradition several years ago of eating at Lombardo's, we took friends with us this year. It's not always easy finding a place open on Christmas Eve but Lombardo's traditionally has seating available until 6 p.m. Like we have for many years, our friends thoroughly enjoyed the food here. We enjoyed appetizers of mozzarella frittos (homemade),... More

This type of Italian food is why the cuisine came to be known as heavy, and why the menu doesn't seem to have changed since 1946 when the restaurant opened. The veal in the Parmesan patty was hockey puck thick with a slice of cheese and a heavy red sauce. Others in our party had the osso buco special which... More

Had dinner with friends last night at Lombardo's and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The service was very good, the bread and salad top-notch, but the highlight was the lasagna. Every bite was scrumptious and surprising. Sometimes I would get sausage, sometimes pepperoni, beef, mushrooms and/or peppers.It tasted just as good the next day reheated in my microwave.There was a nice... More

We were in Lancaster for a conference, hungry for Italian food. Lombardo's was recommended by the desk clerk at the Marriott. We are so pleased. Friendly, helpful staff. We were greeted by the owner, Mike Lombardo. He takes so much pride in his business. Food was excellent. Everything was homemade. Topped off my meal with lemon creme brûlée, outstanding. Wish...
