As a kosher family we adopt a vegetarian lifestyle when travelling and although our kids are increasingly adventurous, pizza and pasta is an all too frequent option. Lombardi's was actually an above average choice.

The service was good, even though the place was quite full and the food was pleasant and reasonably priced. My eight year old daughter did find the children's portion pitifully small, however.

We enjoyed Lombardi's marinara sauce on pasta, but be careful of their garlic noodles--over kill on the garlic. The salad was very, very small--like a tiny cereal bowl, and very sad...wilted as if sitting out for a long time.

If they'd freshen the salad and enlarge it, I'd give it a higher rating.

Had to drag conversation out of the waiters. Seems they see so many people come and go in this town that they don't really "see" their guests. I'd prefer a warm smile and "where ya from" over the best meal in town. IMO.

Just when you think the service is the worst part of the experience, the food comes. At that point, it's a toss up as to which is actually worse. Head for the hills, literally.

We were looking around for somewhere to eat in Cambria and chanced upon Lombardi's.

Wish we'd found somewhere else!

The garlic bread was very strong (a good point), but the pasta cooked so al dente that it was chewy, and with an absolutely tasteless alfredo sauce.
