I have visited this town twice and both times I have made it a point to eat at Lombardo's. The lunch menu is at a great price and the portions are more than enough. I especially liked the caesar salad, the dressing is not the traditional kind.

We have been there twice. The first time food was great, second time the food was just okay. Maybe the head Chef was sick. Still looking for a better Italian restaurant..

I've enjoyed Lombardo's Italian restaurant for over 20 years. They have an excellent red sauce and were even willing to always accommodate special dietary needs anytime we went. The portions are large so there's plenty for a work lunch the next day. Prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. Service any time I've been has been good,... More

You think you are in Italy when you enter Lombardo's and the food scent hits you. Extremely good food and if you are not into Italian food, they have a great egg salad sandwich and the egg salad is made when you order. I would love to know the secret ingredients. Its a very friendly bar to visit as well... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Lancaster city, old school Italian at its best! My family had been going here for 30+ years, never had a bad meal here, food is very consistently good, and the management always friendly as well as the servers, they always make you feel at home here, and I never leave hungry, usually...

Lombardo's is my families "go to" Italian restaurant in Lancaster. When the kids come home from college, Lombardo's is always on our short list. Drinks are icy-cold, She-Crab Soup is exceptional and salads are fresh. My family favors the Veal Parm. Patty, the Gnocchi and the Cheese Ravioli. We have never tried the desserts as we are always too full... More

I ate here one evening since I was in the mood for Italian food. I ate in the bar area since I was dining alone. There were a lot of choices on the menu, both Italian and standard fare. I had a salad and the manicotti. Both were good, but nothing outstanding. The bar filled up pretty fast and it... More

Worst Italian restaurant experience of my life. I had chicken Parmesan; it wasn't bad but the sauce was atrocious - watery and flavorless. Girlfriend's spaghetti was also watery with odd tasting meatballs. Service was nonexistent. Not one dish was removed from our table during the entire meal. We had to stack our empty appetizer, soup, salad and entrée dishes up... More

This place has been here for as long as I can remember having gone there throughout my childhood. The food is not like Olive Garden or other "chain" types it's fresh good down home Italian. We ordered the chicken Parmesan, veal Parmesan, spaghetti and beef ravioli and were served more than we could eat in 1 sitting. The bread and... More
