If you like Garlic, order it on any pasta. There must be at least 20 cloves of garlic in each dish. I love their garlic sauce on everything. Their Shrimp pizza is fabulous. If you order the complete dinner, it comes with salad, complimentary glass of wine, garlic bread and SPUMONI ice cream for desert. You have to get the... More

Been going here since I was a kid. I'm 52. My family loves it. I'm ok with it. I don't like watery pasta and dos find a hair in my pizza. Turns out from a brush used for sauce but still not appetizing. I go for my family. Not because I like it. Friendly staff.

While I'm glad you and your family have been coming by to enjoy a meal for over 40 years, it's obviously disappointing you're not the biggest fan of our food. As for finding a hair, I'm shocked to hear that since we take food preparation and safety seriously here, so I hope you mentioned this in the moment to our... More

I have been visiting Lomeli's since 1978. The restaurant offers delicious and authenticate Italian dishes in a very cozy and comfortable atmosphere. This is the perfect place to bring someone special or the entire family. If you haven't, make sure to try the Evening Special For Two. While all of their food is great, my favorites are their cheese pizza,... More

Lomeli's is old school Italian food. Don't fill your belly with the chain restaurants and their all you can eat, endless this and that. Treat yourself to some authentico Italiano! The menu is simple, the recipes are time honored traditions. Lunch is great, the lasagna will put you in a blissful coma!

This is the second time I have had dinner there, this time I took my son both of us traveling, him from Northern CA and me from AZ. The food has been excellent both time I've gone and my son really enjoyed it this trip. Any time you are in the area for a night I highly recommend.

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.

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.
