While we liked the food and service, we found it to be a bit unusual. My guess is that the owners are not of Italian descent, because there are misspellings on the menu and the waitress mispronounced the names of some of the dishes. The dish I had was not like the dishes by the same name I had eaten... More

My wife and I got lunch at this place today while staying in Cambria. We have seen it when passing through many times before but have never stopped by. The staff were very friendly and efficient in providing their service, and the food was all very good overall. My wife said her antipasto salad was amongst the best she has... More

Valentine's day and my wife could choose any restaurant in Cambria and thankfully she chose Lombardi's. For such a small town Cambria has many excellent choices to fit any budget.This wonderful restaurant is very reasonably priced. We have eaten here many times over the years, it has always been delicious. I was surprised this was her choice because come on... More

My friend (the local) took me here for dinner on the way home one night. Quiet atmosphere, but that could be due to the hour and the weather. Nondescript decor. A good sized menu with just about everything you would expect from an Italian restaurant. A respectable if small wine list with good local wines. Excellent service. The sauces tended... More

This place is an old favorite of mine, though I moved to the other coast ten years ago. It is just as good as I remember, the pasta is fresh, the sauce, meatballs, and mushrooms are all very good. I like the smallish room and the old style setting. My fellow diners ordered other entrees and were all pleased. The... More

Pros: Baked eggplant sandwich to die for. Friendly service. Great value. Cons: Just an ordinary looking place, but the food makes you forget it. Suggestion: If nothing else, order the baked eggplant sandwich.

We went quite early on a midweek evening, so didn't expect a buzz, but it was dismally quiet. Pasta very ordinary and the sauces not very fresh tasting.

We went to Lombardi's because we fancied something different after over two weeks in the States. We were not disappointed and were served with the best meal we have had for some time, not only on our time in the US. The atmosphere was friendly and homely, it was reasonably priced and the pasta was some of the best we... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Cambria that wasn't seafood and decided to give this place a try. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's not the fanciest of places, but the food is pretty good. It's on a side street off the main drag. Order the antipasto salad or lasagna (which we saw most people eating). The... More
