So, l have lived in Dunnellon for 12 years now, and I never tried this nice little restaurant. Wow I am glad I did, and sad that I didn't visit sooner. Although the staff was well, absent from the table and did not attend the tables, it was a laid back, relaxed, family atmosphere. The salad bar was fresh and... More

We stopped in Lombardo's for lunch to try some Italian food. They did not seem ready for a lunch crowd and the food took a while to come out. I had the chicken parm. sandwich for lunch and was not very impressed. I thought the chicken was rather chewy and there was not a lot of sauce on the sandwich.... More

Me and hubby decided to try this restaurant yesterday about 6 pm. I ordered Chicken parm dinner, he had sausage & pepper dinner, both of us chose penne pasta. We also ordered a cheese pizza. The salad bar was small but fresh and good. I had high hopes... nope... Flavorless food, so bland we asked for garlic powder or salt.... More

I've been coming to Lombardo's for many years. The food is homemade and authentic. No frills, just good food, good service and a quiet space to enjoy a meal and conversation. The marinara sauce is perfect.

The food and service were fine, lacks atmosphere. Not an exceptional dinner, but very adequate. If you are looking for a reasonable meal, Lombardo's can provide that.

Just opened again after changing hands (and names) and it is now owned and operated by the Neals who owned and operated Lombardo's for nearly 30 years. Same great chef, better menu, salad bar and updated atmosphere propel Lombardo's beyond its customary exceptional italian cuisine. We had a Pizza, Chicken Parm and Spaghetti w/Vegetables - all were exceptional. Prices are... More
