    Service is excellent every time. Food is good home cooked Italian style. It reminds me of my childhood. In my party of the six, four of us were Italian Americans and all agreed good food👍👍👍.

    Very disappointed. Been there previously at it was awesome. This time- indifferent bartender, poor waiter service, despite it being nearly empty, pizza was mediocre and pasta was poor.

    Lombardi’s is a perfect place for a family. The food was great. Pizza is great, meatballs and breadstick are fabulous. We ordered the wings but they take 15 minutes to come out so we didn’t order them. The service was on point. The ambience is wonderful. It was a lovely afternoon for my family of 6.

    Overpriced, average at best food. Server was rarely seen. Couldn't figure out a dairy free option for one our diners. What a waste of time and a mistake for my family to go there.

    Food is delicious, and every time I eat here I am impressed by the wait staff. They are, all of them, warm and delightful and they never rush us. Whoever is overseeing the wait staff is doing a great job because they are reflecting an attitude of true hospitality. ( I am not connected to anyone in the restaurant; I just really appreciate them.) As for the food, love the Caesar salad, the eggplant, chicken Parmesan, and the pasta with pesto. I've never had pizza here but it looks good too.

    On our trip we went twice, my sons were begging to go back. This is the best pizza we have ever had. The fresh Mozzarella cheese and the dough are unlike anything I've ever had anywhere else. I have the sense that I've been transported back 100 years in time to eat pizza. When I go to NYC in the future, this will always be on the agenda. Thank you for the wonderful food and dining experience.

    Had great pizza and meatballs at Lombardi’s. We were a large complicated group and the staff was very accommodating. We had a 3 year old with us and asked if we could have a little bit of pizza dough to entertain her which they were more than happy to accommodate.

    Service was good and fast. Our drinks didn't get refilled. We had the 16" pizza with pepperoni and meatballs for about $35 plus drinks and tax for a total of about $50. It tasted great but it's not a good value. I think $18 for the pizza and $2 (with a refill) for the drinks would've made it a good value.
