“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We stayed at the St.Moritz and did not realized we had the # 3 restaurant on Trip Advisor. We went there for dinner, the lab was excellent, the beef was delicious, The dessert was excellent. Overall the food here would get a 23 on the Zagat guide

“Best lamb backstrap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We were staying at Hotel St Moritz and didn't want to head out to face the cold so we decided to give Lombardi a try. We had a great meal. Between us we ordered the pork belly and seared scallops & crab cigarillo for entree, the lamb backstrap and fish of the day for main and the forest berries shortcake and lime pannacotta for dessert. The lamb was cooked to perfection, my husband who doesn't normally like lamb really loved it. So much so that he wanted to go back the next night for dinner, which we did via room service. The service was great and the waitstaff were friendly.
When we ordered dinner the next night, (had three courses again), it only took them half an hour to deliver everything up to our room. We ordered the seafood share platter for entree, the seared salmon and lamb backstrap for main, and the valrhona chocolate and rhubarb crumble for dessert. It was beautiful! Salmon was crispy skinned without being too dry and the sauce, potato puree and bok choy was perfectly matched. The choc dessert was also quite impressive, the semifredo was finished off with appeared to be copper edible paint, the effect was quite beautiful.

“Several Meals - All good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We stayed at the St Moritz, so eating in house was of course an easy option and with Accor also a bonus. We ordered room service the first night. Which was a very nice meal - lamb.
Breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice and all fresh. Two more dinners and they were just as good. The view is excellent also. Would definitely recommend and will visit again.

“Wonderful Pizza with a 5 star view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Monday night is Pizza night at the Lombardi so we decided to try the wood smoked Pizza's that apparently the locals like to keep as their best kept secret.

The pizza's arrived and they were wonderful, washed down with a lovely drop of red it was perfect.

The service and the view are 5 star, so if you feel like eating Pizza with a 5 star view on a Monday night then Lombardi's is for you. Of course they serve Pizza every night too.
