Lomeli's is a quaint small family owned restaurant in our neighborhood. We've eaten in and taken out food. It is always delicious! We like to to go combo's to share. Too many favorites to list! Just go eat there, you will not be disappointed!

I loved the service and the food, we didn't wait too long for the food to arrive, the atmosphere was very pleasant everyone was very nice and the service was great, just a little pricey but all my family enjoyed it!

This is a small Italian eatery (if it were any bigger it would lose its charm).). Lunch specials are $6.50; the most expensive dinner on the menu is $11 (sides - mushrooms, veggies, chicken strips are a small extra charge). Pizza, salads, combo dinners available. GO TO THIS RESTAURANT!!! The food is outrageously delicious and the portions are huge. I... More

Visited based on Trip Advisor reviews. VERY non-descript from the outside. Only a door, not even a window onto an average strip - mall. Very welcoming inside. Home made, delicious Italian food served by friendly knowledgeable wait staff. It's very well priced and caters to couples and groups. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

This is a local favorite! Super small and crowded but worth the wait! From the salad down to the strawberry cheesecake ice cream (amazing!)

All the food here is good. Especially love the manicotti. Not a fancy place, but a good place for a casual dinner or take out good too. I have even ordered trays of their food for home and office parties.

We were looking for a local restaurant, as opposed to a chain. This place definitely fit the bill. It was fairly comfortable, and the menu has something for everyone. The food was fairly good. The meatless marinara was stellar, as was the garlic bread. The service was a bit slow, but we had expected that so we went before the... More

Jenny, first of all, thanks for actively supporting local -- you have no idea how much that means to us and others like us. As for the meal, great to hear that the meatless marinara was a hit, but I'm sorry the service was a little lacking. Hope we'll knock it out of the park for you in every way... More

The booths as I recall have overhead wood lattice decor giving it a rustic garden feel while at the same time being cozy and with more of an indoor mood lighting feel as opposed to bright outdoor garden scenario. Speaking of garden they brought us carrots and salad peppers, and minestrone soup,a nice touch. I had linguini al pesto which... More
