This was our first visit to Lombardis but we were not disappointed. Service was great, the waitress was very attentive, explained the different types of meals and made sure we had everything we needed. Menu offered many different choices to suit all in our party. Food was wonderfully cooked and plated. There was plenty for a main course, but we did manage to squeeze in a dessert as they all looked so yummy we couldn't resist. We were dining with friends who we hadn't seen for a long time so after our meal, we ended up being the last people in the restaurant. However, the staff did not rush us to leave, they were happy to clean up around us whilst we finished our drinks.
Would definitely go back again.

We went on Boxing Day. An hour after ordering we were approached and apologized to, the long wait being attributed to having fewer staff on a holiday. The food, which came over a quarter of an hour after this, was good but nothing special. The big shock was when the bill came, and we were charged an extra 15% due to it being a holiday, despite the restaurant being understaffed (by choice of the manager) and incredibly slow. Would not go back on principle.

Had lunch time meal here with a group of 10. Our host was attentive, amusing and very helpful with suggestions. Everyone’s meal came out looking scrumptious. There was some authentic Italian flavours and was well priced. I have been here 4 times now and never had a bad meal. It’s great getting an outside table on a sunny day watching the world go by too. Highly recommend.

We had lunch at Lombardi’s. Nice lunch menu with good pasta and pizza options.
The pasta and pizza we had truly deserves the name Italian food. Very nice and a welcome difference to many other places who pretend to cook and serve Italian food.

Service was friendly and attentive. Sitting outside in the sun was fabulous.
