    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 staff was exceptionally friendly to everyone. We would recommend this to anyone that is looking for excellent Italian cuisine.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    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.

    My wife and two children (5 and 7) had dinner one night while staying in myrtle beach. We chose it due to the reviews. Overall it was a good place. Decent kids menu, my wife enjoyed the chicken carbonara. I had the chicken parm and it was large however was overpowered with oregano. The waitress was a bit slow and didn't bring my wife her glass of wine. Bar was modern looking. Would probably try another place next time to compare others.

    Our first dining experience while on vacation and we can't say enough about the welcoming atmosphere, amazing food and service. The moment we walked in the door we were greeted by the Dining Manager and a member of the Lombardo family. We were promptly seated and greeted by our waiter. The interior decor is modern and we loved the color changing pin lights over the bar. The chicken picata was excellent. The chicken was tender, tasty and generous in size. My dining partner ordered the lasagna and found it amazing. We definitely will be dining here again.

The dinner salad was fresh and crisp. The veal francaise and surf and turf were both excellent. I recommend this restaurant.

    I have exclusively only used an American Express card for over 30 years. I am very careful to visit establishment that accept American Express. Lombardos listed on Open Table in Capital letters AMEX. It was especially embarrassing when handing the waiter the Amex card, he informed me that they do not accept Amex. I had to ask one of the invited parties for a credit card. This was on top of food quality of below of what was expected. The owner did apologize for the dinner and did take one off the check that was not edible, which happened to be the party that handed me the Visa card to pay the bill. We are from Myrtle and do not expect culinary excellence in this area. Lombardo's was below average on our visit.
