Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had been here a few times in the past but not for a good few years, we had always enjoyed the food in the past but standards have slipped badly. I had the Parfait di pollo to start and it was the worst pate I...have ever had, could not even finish it as it was so ba, I then had the Hawaiian pizza which which had an unusual taste and was nothing special, my wife said her meal was okay but bland. The floor and our table were covered in crumbs and we were there at evening opening time so that must have been left since lunchtime, disgusting! The service was nothing very special either and was if they couldn't be bothered. Also quite expensive making it a worse experience so we won't be back as there are plenty of other proper delicious Italian restaurants to go to.More

Went to La Lombard’s last night for a pre theatre meal with some friends, it was steadily busy but the girl who served us (I didn’t catch her name sorry!) was so attentive! Our cocktails arrived quite quickly and were delicious, I highly recommend their...sex on the beach cocktail! Food order was taken and food arrived promptly, hot and nicely presented. I had a lovely king prawn risotto which had the juiciest well cooked king prawns through it. My friends both enjoyed their meals too. We only managed a main course due to time restraints for getting to the theatre show but I can’t wait to come back and have a full 3 course meal and sample some of the wines from the extensive wine list they have on offer!More

Despite it being a fairly busy Sat night the food we had was served really quickly and was delicious, the servers are great and the total cost did not break the bank!

I've been on the hunt for a proper Italian carbonara (made with no cream) for a while now and I thought La Lombarda would be sure to deliver. Unfortunately, like so so many restaurants, that wasn't the case so I was disappointed (and surprised) with...that. I ordered the puttanesa instead and it was very nice, light and tasty (although I think it was missing the capers). We all had starters and mains which were overall positive. The waitress was really nice and I tried her new limoncello spritz which was fun. Quite pricey for what we got but we enjoyed it well enough.More

Planning a special afternoon out in Aberdeen wouldn’t have been complete without a nice meal. Returning to La Lombarda for the first time in a few years I was delighted that it was every bit as good as I remember, if not even better! A...friendly welcome and great service was a fantastic addition to the beautiful food we had. We had children and allergies to deal with in our group and the staff took all this in their stride with a smile. Such a nice alternative to the all familiar eye roll when entering some other establishments on Union Street with kids. Two beautiful pizzas were inhaled by the kids whilst the adults were stuffed after bowls of beautiful handmade pasta. We will be back very soon. Thank you!More

Visited La Lombarda for the first time in three years and won’t be back any time soon. Four in our party ahead of a gig at The Lemon Tree. Two of us had chicken pate which you could have poured out of a jug (duck...pate special wasn’t available.) A while after starters were cleared, we were informed there were no anchovies for the spaghetti puttanesca, surely quite a basic ingredient in an Italian restaurant? Mains took nearly 45 minutes to arrive and the risotto casalinga had tiny, perfectly uniform, cubes of chicken which looked like they were processed. £130+ for 2 course dinner for four with six drinks was extremely expensive for the poor quality.More

Had a really lovely pre-theatre meal at La Lombardas. They do a really good itison.com deal, 2 courses for 2 people for £19. Can't beat it! Starters and mains were delicious and perfect portion sizes. I always end up choosing the same thing, Buffalo Mozzarella...Caprice and Penne Garibaldi, my old favourites! But there's loads on the menu to choose from. Also a good drinks/wine list and service very good. Another lovely evening at La Lombardas.More

Just had the most wonderful meal with friends. On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome by Alex. She was so lovely and very knowledgeable in regards to the menu. Nothing was a bother and made us feel very special. The food was...absolutely delicious. Compliments to the chef. We all had pasta dishes for our main. Every one of them full of flavour (clean plates all round) with a side of cheesy garlic bread (totally recommend) and a bowl of chips. Our desserts were equally as good, I had the special which was chocolate fudge cake and my friends had the tiramisu and cheese cake both very tasty. I had the best pink gin and lemonade to drink which was really nice! It was made very well. I would throughly recommend this lovely cosy restaurant. It’s a great location with easy access to the station.More

Was over priced for what we actually had and very average ! Asked for cocktails and were unable to provide them because they had run out of most alcohol on a Saturday night. The cocktails that they did make were so undrinkable we sent them...back ! Then questioned the bill when they charged them even when we ordered other drinks as the cocktails were so undrinkable. Very average and over priced !More

We visited La Lombarda for a special meal, having not been in years and had good experiences. However, this was not a great experience. It was quiet with 6 tables (at most). We waited over 30 minutes for our starters which were an antipasti and...bruschetta. My bruschetta was just chopped tomatoes on garlic bread.... Have had better in chain Italian restaurants. My calzone was cold in the middle and very poorly made. My husband's pizza was very average. Again, we waited over 20 minutes for our plates to be cleared and no one checked or asked how we found the food. We only got our plates cleared because we called someone over to ask for the bill. The prices are high and for the quality of food, they are out right atrocious. Considering the competition of other Italian restaurants in Aberdeen, La Lombarda doesn't even compete, unfortunately. It is such ashame as it has been a staple in Aberdeen's city centre for so many years but has gone downhill considerably since I last visited.More

Atrocious service, restaurant was cold starters took an age to come no explanation or warning, no bread, extra drinks or anything we had very elderly people with us and two young children who were amazingly patient it then took almost an hour for our main...courses to arrive. Pizza wasn’t very good rest of the food was okay we gave up on desserts due to the lateness of the hour! We travelled into the city for this meal really felt let down. Totally understand there any have been good reasons but no explanation or proper apology offered serving staff just said ‘sorry we didn’t know’…More
