    During a recent Myrtle Beach golf vacation with friends, we enjoyed a fun and delicious Italian meal at Lombardo's. We were a group of eight and were warmly welcomed on our arrival. The server was energetic and friendly and the menu provided lots of options - some classics and some innovative dishes. All those who had salads enjoyed the home made dressings - especially the Caesar. The stuffed mushrooms and Carpaccio were among the enjoyable appetizers. My veal marsala was among the best I've had. The Marsala sauce was outstanding and veal was very tender. My wife had the scampi and the sauce was nice and "lemony" and not heavy at all. We had a fun time and the staff were very interested and enthusiastic. An enjoyable evening!

    We really enjoyed eating here. The food was delicious and we had a great waiter, Jason, who performed a couple magic tricks and made the evening even more fun. We enjoyed meeting the owner. We also really appreciated that when we asked to be seated away from a couple with a baby (who was crying when we came in), the hostess seated us in another section which was very quiet. We will definitely come back!

    Seeing all the great reviews, I always try try to temper my expectations on Italian spots, both growing up with authentic family cooks and in a region with some great options. I knew we were in for a treat just interacting with smiling patrons that had just finished. From the staff, to the food, to the folks that weren't even assigned to us that wanted to say hello in hearing a group conversation, we couldn't be happier. The wine list gives great options for an Italian fare, the menu absolutely makes us all want to go back to try more and the bar can definitely accomodate large groups while they can adjust table configurations. This time around we tried classics from tomato bisque, chicken parm and carbonara to the chicken rollatini. A+!

    Read several great/reviews about this restaurant but we must have caught them on a bad night. Service was good but my wife's meal was indelible. My chicken was not fresh and tasted as if it was from a TV dinner. Way over priced for the quality of the food. We hoped this might be a great local spot but it was an overpriced Olive Garden at best

    I learned of this restaurant through a web search. I met family who were vacationing in Myrtle Beach. What a lovely restaurant! I can't say enough good things about our entire dinner. Our waiter was outstanding, the wine was excellent, the food was exquisite, and the ambiance was delightful. Definitely will return.

    Following TAs advice we selected Lombardo's for dinner and were not disappointed. This restaurant is very popular and does get busy, so I would suggest making reservations. It's easy enough to do right from TA through "Open Table" and only requires selecting party size, date, time and contact info. Made ours sitting at the pool on my phone...

    The waiter was great, but the food was very disappointing. It sometimes happens that one dish out of the table isn't great, but to have all three of us disappointed says something about the food. We saw they have a new menu, but that had nothing to do with cooking fish and the Italian dishes should have been amazing.

    In Myrtle Beach, the home of "all you can eat", who would expect a fine dining real Italian restaurant. Fantastic real Italian food and great service. My wife and I had looked for a dining experience for our Anniversary and by chance we discovered Lombardo's. Meche, our server was very knowledgeable and very professional. She made several suggestions, all of which turned out to be GREAT. Prices are reasonable and the food is second to none. Actually it was so good, we tried to make return reservations via our Open Table account from the restaurant but due to problems with the website we were unable to do so. Meche handled it very professionally. Second night was excellent also.

    Small portions. 5 small lobster Raviolis, appetizer size even though it was under entrees was $24.95. Alfredo sauce was very sweet unlike any I had ever had. I tasted it after my wife and kids said it was awefull. I agree. We could get better food and go to Olive Garden 4 times versus 1 experience here. Pass.

    Lombardo's is a great Italian restaurant, featuring live jazz music playing in the bar area. Everyone loved the food that was served, especially the Chef Speciality Pork dish that I had, and there was a large selection of affordable wines to choose from. The server was outstanding, never leaving us wanting for something.

    Nice interior, friendly staff and very casual dress permitted (shorts & tee shirts). Staff was very friendly but our waiter was a bit incompetent. I asked about a particular wine selection (our waiter said he could not answer ant questions about wine but did bring me a sample) and ordered an appitizer which never arrived (waiter said he forgot to enter it). I ordered chicken franchese but got chicken Marsella which was very good. Ordered Tartufo for desert which was very good however our waiter forgot to add it to the bill. Service although polite was the only drawback to our evening. Would give them another try.

    extremely long wait from appetiser to dinner. A recommended Fish ($35.00) was not good after some discussion they deducted it from the check.The Osso Buco though late was excellent. retired to the bar for dessert and coffee and after dinner drink. dessert was not offered after we got to the bar. The service was fractured and some of the reason was blamed on our server (Chad) who seemed too professional and not expediter for the kitchen. It is worth another try especially for the live music. Good Jazz.

    We almost drove away when we saw the building but decided to give it a try. Once we entered the restaurant it took on a nice homey feel. The food was amazing! The service was amazing and we even made friends with the owners mother! Such a sweet lady and she goes around to make sure everyone is happy. Like I said, we got the whole home feel with family. So glad we did not judge a book by its cover.
