Above and beyond
This restaurant greatly exceeded my expectations on taste, quality and presentation of our meals. I will gladly return again. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. They also pay great attention to detail. It is the only place I have ever eaten that I had absolutely no complaints about. Come hungry, go home extremely happy.

Good Italian food in Myrtle Beach
The "hole in the wall" location on the outside isn't much to look at but inside the dining room was nice - not fancy or pretentious, but nice. The food was very good. I had a steak special with crab on top and a she crab reduction. My eating companion had the glazed salmon. He wiped his plate clean. The wine selections were pretty decent as well. We did not have dessert. The server was very courteous and food was delivered promptly. I would eat there again.

Restaurant is in a side street strip mall, but inside is a pleasant surprise. Has the neighborhood, "Little Italy" ambiance we know from up north. Jeff, our waiter, welcomed us and treated us like regulars, even though this was our first visit. Took plenty of time to explain the specials, and was very attentive, but not intrusive during the meal. Appetizers and meals were delivered in a timely manner, not rushed, and were HOT (a MUST for me). We all had specials which were outstanding. All six of us agreed that Lombardo's was one of the best Italian restaurants we had experienced in the three years we lived in the area. We also appreciated the owner visiting each table,and thanking us for dining there.

Started rough, but ended well.
Our first visit and overall a pleasant dining experience. The wait service started a bit rough, the wait staff was overloaded due to several larger parties (golfers) and some overly demanding customers. Our waiter said it was unusually busy for a Sunday night. It took a while to order our meal, though the drinks and bread helped bridge the gap. For appetizers, we ordered the stuffed peppers (excellent) and caprese salad (average). For dinner, we had the lobster ravioli (very good) and the pork osso buco (excellent). The little one ordered the pasta/meatballs and ate all of it (must have been good). Everything was delivered timely and hot. We ordered the chocolate cake slice to go. We will return on our next visit to MB.

Classic little neighborhood
Classic little neighborhood Italian. Very good food and reasonably priced. Service very good and attentive despite the fact that kitchen seemed a little understaffed due to an unexpected Tuesday evening walk-in crowd. Definitely worth a visit just for the fresh rolls and olive oil infused with roasted red peppers, garlic, and basil. Both veal and flounder francese were excellent. Decent wine list; not huge, but interesting.Later this month moving from side street on north side of Myrtle Beach to main drag (Kings Hwy/17Bus.

lovely local restaurant. We have eaten at Lombardo's many times since it first opened. The food just gets better and the setting is small and intimate. Best of wishes for your move to the new location.

Great restaurant in Myrtle Beach
This a great out-of-way place for Myrtle Beach visitors. Don't be put off by the strip mall location. This is a great restaurant.
4/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is not a chain restaurant
This is not a chain restaurant but individually owned. Our best meal while at Myrtle Beach. They are moving locations which will make this a even better restaurant. Will be a go to place every visit to S.C. Everyone's meals were made with fresh ingredients' only.

My husband had the Osso Bucco
My husband had the Osso Bucco and he thought it was superb.
I did the Scampi and found that the chief was heavy handed with the lemon.
Would give it another try

Every Occasion is Special.
Made last minute reservations for a party of 10 with special request. John and his crew meet every expectation. As always, great food, wine and service.

Pleasant and Relaxing
The new location is lovely, very comfortable and nicely decorated. Serving staff is friendly and accommodating. My friend and I took our husbands to Lombardo's for Fathers Day and they loved the food and the ambiance.

Great Italian food at the shore
Everything here was very good. We enjoyed our meals very much. Everything was fresh including the seafood. Very nice place for a date night.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll be back
In the midst of many chains, this is a lovely little family owned restaurant. The calamari was too chewy and lacked flavor. However my wife had chicken piccata and I had veal marsala which were both excellent. The tiramisu was fantastic. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and was very personable.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good - our favorite Italian in
Food is always good!! My hubby LOVES the linguine with while clam sauce!!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent and came
Food was excellent and came out at a slower pace so you can actually enjoy it. Was not rushed at all. Could not have asked for a better place to get Italian.

Great food Great service
Food was excellent. Waiter was excellent. Very friendly and welcoming.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had friends visiting from out of town, and we had never been to your restaurant before so we thought lets try it! Everything was great. Robert our server did an excellent job also. We would highly recommend his restaurant. We will be going back there, since we do live here.

Love the new location. Great
Love the new location. Great staff starts the evening with delicious food and excellent wine. Always a stop when we are at our beach house.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were 4 adults and 2 small children and the restaurant was very accommodating to all of our needs. The timing was excellent and the service very attentive. The owner's delightful Mother checked in on us several times to see if we were enjoying ourselves and our waitress was excellent. My only complaint was that the Caesar salad was overdressed. I would ask for dressing on the side next time. The menu prices are very reasonable as is the wine list. I would definitely go back. (The chicken roulade was delicious as was the salmon)

Spot on Italian
Looking for a new place at Myrtle for the discerning palate? They have wide range of Italian specialties, most of which can be customized with your favorite protein. Salads were well prepped with great house dressings....winelist great...specialty martini's...great feel to the restaurant with the bar as a backdrop...Tony Soprano where are you?

Always a treat to return to Lombardo's. The food is excellent, the expanded wine list is awesome and the service is always spot on. It's like coming home for us.

Good Food but some Growing Pains
My family of four had dinner here while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. The food was good and the service was attentive. There was some inexperience in the waiter and in general the place felt a little like they were working thru some challenges in their new facility.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great last minute reservation!
We had plans to go somewhere else but there was a long wait. I jumped on my Open Table app and found Lombardo's. It was exactly what we were looking for. Our table (for 7) was ready when we arrived, the food was good, the service was outstanding. I will definitely be back next time I am at the beach!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time at the restaurant. The food was delicious, ambiance and service were great. The only negative, when we arrived there was a large group sitting near us and they were extremely loud and the sound just echoed. Had a very enjoyable time once they left.
We cannot wait to visit again!!

birthday, anniversary - PHENOMINAL
This was our second "find" while vacationing in Myrtle Beach I cannot say enough about the QUALITY, Attentiveness, presentation, (did I mention quality) of our meal! Escargot was a phenomenal starter, the entree was one of the best cuts or meat I've had in a long time, and our waiter was wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
HIGHLY recommended to try this gem.
8/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great as always
This neighborhood "local" restaurant in the tourist town of Myrtle Beach is wonderful. We vacation in Myrtle at least twice a year and always stop here. Great new location right on business 17.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a stop when we are
Always a stop when we are in town. Great Food, excellent service and love the wine additions!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the intimacy of the old location and were worried that the move to a larger space would change the feel of the restaurant. they have kept the same feel and ambience in the new location. Service was great but we were a bit dissapointed with our food. The menu is the same but the quality of several entrees (group of 6) was less than optimal. Surf kabob had fishy taste, chicken pasta had little flavor. Calamari was very good. Penne vodka was very good. We are assuming that the food change was just an off night in the kitchen
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere and service
I would have liked to give this restaurant a four star rating because the appetizer and entrees were delicious. However, the marinara sauce served over the side dish of pasta was sweet and lacked flavoring. Since I am a pasta person, I was very disappointed. I find this to be a problem in many Italian restaurants.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE this place!!!
I don't know what else to say: The food was excellent, took a while to get served (they were busy) but they more than made up for it. Second time here but will definitely not be the last. Everything was delicious, great atmosphere and reasonably priced for what you get.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good. We just moved to NMB and this was our second visit.
A favorite for us. We will certainly be back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian in Myrtle Beach!
Their chicken picatta is exceptional but my hubby HAS to go every time we are in town for the linguine with white clam sauce!
9/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
We found the restaurant to
We found the restaurant to be half full and were taken to an excellent table in the courier. Our waiter Adam was obviously new but very personable, attentive and concerning. He made recommendations that my wife and I both accepted which were excellent. Overall a very good experience and I would definitely go back
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The first stop we always make
The first stop we always make when in town. John and his staff really know how to treat their guest. Food is always delicious as was the wine. Friendly staff makes for a great dining experience!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
What can I say. Two nights
What can I say. Two nights in a row. These guys really know how to please. From asking for special dishes from the chef to the friendly staff. Always a treat!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
What can I say? I told Mrs. Lombardo that we saved the best for last, and we DID! So happy that we visited this awesome Italian restaurant!! Our last night in Myrtle Beach was the most memorable dinner we had, and the service was impeccable. Loved the touch of Mrs. Lombardo walking around and speaking to each and every table - not just a "how's everything?" conversation either - she was adorable!!
Escargots were fabulous and plentiful! Carpaccio was a huge portion - good for sharing!! For our entrees - I had Osso Bucco with parmesan risotto - YUMMMM!! My husband had the veal parm - excellent taste and very tender! We will be back to Myrtle Beach - and back to Lombardo's!!!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
one of our favorite places!
My husband loves the linguine with clam sauce! The chicken picata was wonderful as well!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Old style Italian decor with attentive service and excellent food. We definitely will be back. Our waiter, Adam, checked in with us throughout the meal, and was helpful with menu descriptions and suggestions.
The wife's eggplant rollatini was flavorful and filling, and my steak marsala was equally delicious. It will be hard for us to order different items the next time that we visit.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyable dining experience
We picked Lombardo's without any knowledge of the restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The first thing we noticed was the staff was friendly and accommodating. I ordered the sea bass and my wife the shrimp scampi. Both meals were delicious and served hot. The portions were large with the sea bass being about 8 ounces which was generous but very much appreciated. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The salads were also pretty large for a side salad and the ingredients fresh and crispy. This is a very nice restaurant with very good food. We will return the next time we are in Myrtle Beach.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still love this place!
Don't know what to say that I haven't already. Greeted and seated promptly, our waiter (Mark) was attentive without being intrusive and the food as always was excellent!
