Both craving Italian, my husband and I decided to try Lombardo's for a celebratory dinner -- BIG mistake. Our bad experience started when we walked in the door... the host and waitresses were all at the bar. Clearly looking confused as we waited at the host stand, they finally finished their own conversation and came over to seat us several minutes later, seemingly annoyed that we interrupted their conversation. The service is terrible. Our waitress wasn't friendly at all and treated us like we were an inconvenience. Another waitress sat at the bar and eavesdropped on our conversation all night. My husband got the homemade canelloni/manicotti -- the "thin" shells were WAY too thick and tasted terrible. I got the veal scallopini special -- a big boal of chunky tomato sauce arrived. I thought she brought the wrong entree -- it was nearly inedible. I lost my appetite immediately. It was way overpriced for what it is -- bad Italian that anyone could make at home and probably much better. I was very disappointed and will not be back.

Lombardo's is an Italian restaurant by family for family. Rely on Michael Lombardo's recommendations, and when they all sound good request THE SAMPLER. You won't find this on the menu, but ask and you and your dinner partner will receive two of just about every pasta on the menu, plus two meatballs and two salads. The idea is to help you pick a favorite for next time. The problem is that they all are so good that you probably will succeed only in narrowing down the choices for your return to three or four. Decisions, decisions. Make sure to try the pesto sauce as well as the red sauces with and without meat. Easy to understand how Lombardo's has been in business for about 65 years!

If you like diner version of "Italian" food (more an Americanized version of Italian cuisine than the real thing), then you will like Lombardo's.
