If you are ever in Gardena Ca you must try this restaurant. It has the best Italian food I have ever tasted and is very reasonable. It is located in a Ralph's grocery store parking lot on the corner of Van Ness & Redondo Beach Blvd. There are several stores and Lomeli's looks real tiny. Once you get in you... More

Lomeli's is Gardena institution and rightly so. The only negative to this place is that it is not bigger! They have tasty pizza and all of their pasta dishes are delicious. I know of people trying to buy their meat sauce in bulk, but unfortunately they cannot sell big batches like that. A very good bargain is their meal for... More

My teenage nieces suggested this restaurant when I offered to treat them to a Christmas lunch while they were on vacation. What a great place! They were very busy with a large group celebrating a birthday, but they still took good care of us and the food was delicious. It seemed most tables had a pizza sitting on a warmer,... More

Do yourself a favor. Quaint, quiet and quality. Homemade Italian dishes and the atmosphere is amazing. Great for date night without putting a pinch on your wallet.

The service is always excellent, even when they are extremely busy. The prices are a good value, especially for a family. They do not take reservations and at times a long wait time but this shows how good this restaurant is because the customers wait, no matter how long.

We fancied Italian whilst holidaying in LA and googled nearby restaurants. This one got the best reviews on Tripadvisor, so off we went and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is tucked away between some shops and is the entrance is just a front door but behind it is a wonderful little grotto serving proper Italian food at it's best.... More

We have eaten here before, several times, and each has been excellent. While not upscale or fashionable, the food is ample and tasty, with pleasant attentive service. The lunch menu is extensive and reasonable. If you are seeking good plain Americanized Italian and at decent prices this is the place.
