    Dined on 8/15/2014
    We ate here during Restaurant Week downtown. The offerings were plentiful, and there was no regret over any of the choices we made. There is nothing in the world like their flash-fried spinach--I could have made a meal out of it. As it was, it came as my appetizer, and the pepperloin with sherry wine sauce, side of roasted potatoes, and (glory be!) White Russian Pie for dessert was out of this world! Everyone was friendly, the atmosphere was fun, and we will be back!

    Lombardo's was one of my favorite restaurants, but the last time I dined there I was disappointed. There was only one other table when we were there, but the service was sorely lacking. Also, the food wasn't as good as usual. I wonder if this location will close soon.

    Made reservations without knowing anything about this restaurant other then the info on OpenTable. It was for my parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary. We headed to dinner after a very, very hot Cards game. The entire staff was great and acknowledged their anniversary. Service great and good too! Don't miss this Italian gem.

    Had lots of choices to eat in St Louis when it come to fine Italian food. Lombardo's has to be right up there with the best. Toasted ravioli appetizer was amazing, the best I've ever had. My wife had filet and I had lobster risotto which both were great. The best came at the end with dessert. You must try the Russian black pie, it's to die for.

    My husband proposed to me at Lombardo's so we return there for any important date or occasion in our relationship. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary a few days early by staying at the Drury Inn for the weekend and then having dinner at Lombardo's. It is always wonderful and better than the last time. He can get his "steak and potatoes" and I can get something more exotic in the way of fish. I never manage to order off the menu, because the specials always blow me away.

    Accommodating is what Lombardo's was....they LISTENED to our needs and our time restraints. Great waiter named Mitch was keeping an watchful eye on our time since we had season tickets to the Peabody. Food was very good and a lot of it...wine list was exceptional. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    We went to Scottrade for the basketball games and I wanted to find something more upscale than Hard Rock café. We were quite surprised at the wonderful experience that we enjoyed. It started with perfect service. Mick was welcoming without being overbearing. He knew the menu well and described entrees to us with a flair that made your mouth water. Then he let us know what the restaurant was famous for and gave us time to decide. The food was wonderful. The house made caesar dressing was perfect. My daughter who is an Italian food nut, said it was some of the best she ever had. I had the special of surf and turf. It was a filet gorgonzola and two stuffed shrimp. Wonderful and very filling. Great service and good price point.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 3/8/2014
    Lombardo's has a wonderful flash fried spinach appetizer. It is light and melts in your mouth. I've had it at other restaurants but Lombardo's tops them all. It is our "go to" when we want a great steak. Since it is in downtown St. Louis, there are usually people there before and after sporting events so it's a casual atmosphere. I would have to say it is one of our favorite restaurants in the St. Louis metro area. It is always consistently good.

    We were a little lost and almost 30 minutes late for our reservation... We called hoping we could still be accommodated, as it was near 10 p.m. and the staff was just fabulous! They got us there, gave us a beautiful table, and the service was phenomenal. The filet mignon and lobster tail were wonderful, as well as the New York strip. I'd also recommend the cheese garlic bread and toasted ravioli- they were stuffed to perfection.

    Me and my wife went for a valentines day dinner(one day late), and had a wonderful time. They even gave my wife a rose after dinner, which my wife really appreciated. They have a good varity of food choices, (in the italian catagory) and a great winelist, which we took advantage of I must say. Food was cooked as ordered, and the service was prompt and friendly. They also have a small bar for after dinner if your into that. We both enjoyed our time there. I will be recommending them.

    Lombardo's is one of our favorite restaurants in St. Louis, but on this trip it just didn't measure up. I'm sure part of the issue was visiting on Valentine's Day - I know better than frequent restaurants on holidays like this and New Year's eve, etc. The food was still very good, but the service was much worse than normal. My wife and I both commented that it was service similar to a Denny's or IHop - take your order, bring the food, bring the check - that was it. The pacing on the meal was also horrible - bread arrived right away, salads at least 30 minutes later, main entries the minute they removed the salad plates. And for all of this, we paid a premium because of the holiday. We will return, but probably going to be awhile.

    We've been to many of the well known Italian restaurants on the hill. This one, while not on the hill, rates pretty average. Service was ok and so was meal. Ambience had something to be desired. Could really use an update. One note was that they are known for toasted ravioli sand they were indeed the best we've had.

    A co-worker recommended the restaurant. It was a disappointing experience. My entrée was lukewarm and not what I ordered. When my originally-ordered entrée arrived, it was also lukewarm and had a metallic, bitter taste. I couldn't eat it. My friend liked his lasagna. Our waiter was personable and full of stories; however, he did place the wrong order for me.

    I recently travelled to St. Louis for the World Series and asked a few of the locals for a good Italian place and more than one recommended Lombardo's Trattoria. We made a reservation for Sunday evening, prior to the game. What a great place. We walked there from the Sheraton so getting there is walkable from downtown. The food was amazing! Being from Boston, it reminded me of the North End. I especially enjoyed the homemade toasted raviolis... I ordered the chicken parmigiana and it was amazing! Wine list was impressive as well. They have a great little bar area while you wait for a table and of course they take reservations via Open Table. Will for sure be eating here when I come back in Feb next year!

    We reacquainted ourselves with Lombardo's during Downtown Restaurant Week and were thrilled. The food and wine were excellent and the service matched the both of them. We had not been in a number of years and really cannot remember why we stopped but this visit reminded us what an excellent restaurant this is. There were six of us and all ordered something different with some variation on beef, we were all very pleased. We will be back.
