We had lunch at Lombardi's in Mill Creek with our friends, in celebration of St. Patrick's Day and what a blast. Thanks Lombardi's - you never disappoint!

Steven was our waiter as well as the person who answered the phone. His demeanor on the phone is what brought us in and it continued as we sat down. We ordered sandwiches as lettuce wraps and fries. One of the sandwiches that we ordered they couldn’t put ham on it as it was frozen. Than they were out of fries! The manager apologized as she was no aware of the issue until it came up to us. She took my name and number haven’t heard anything yet but hopeful.

Went here for Valentine’s Day for the first time, and was very pleased with the place. It offered great deals and was a high quality place for being a neighborhood kinda restaurant, greatly recommend this place.

I would definitely recommend it; however, this was Valentine's Day - a VERY busy night. There was a large group in the normally separate party room, who were extremely loud, which made it hard for us to hear each other. The food and service were very good as usual.

One of our favorite restaurants! Had a wonderful evening celebrating my birthday. The experience was great all around -- quality of the food, drinks, atmosphere, and especially the service. Lombardi's should be on everyone's list to visit frequently! Well done, as always!

My only negative moment was over a lack of options for a high chair but we used a booster seat and everything was great. Parking can be tight on a weekend evening.

Overall a good experience. Ordered the seasonal roast beef, wasn’t anything special. Booth seat had a lot of sag in it too. Customer service was stellar. I think if the price matched the food and sitting experience a little better I’d feel better about it. Not a bad joint at all tho.

The food was good, although I thought a little pricey. It was a special occasion dinner so was wiling to pay the price, but it won't be a place we visit often on our fixed retirement income.

All in all it’s an average Italian restaurant. The food is good but a bit over priced for the quality. The service is above average but not stellar. Looks like high school kids or your college age folks trying to make a living. The restaurant is dated and in need of a makeover.

Have eaten here many times- must have been an off night. Noise level was very high to start but that’s not the fault of the restaurant. Both the pot roast and the salmon piccata were quite dry and a bit tasteless. Ordered more piccata sauce which didn’t really help. Tasted the pot roast brought home and honestly- no flavor. Our friend ordered the chicken Marsala and loved it. I’ll try that next time.

I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but the service and food was quite good. We chose to sit in the bar to take advantage of happy hour, which helped keep the bill somewhat reasonable. It is a bit pricey for Italian food. Profit margins on pasta dishes tends to be high, so as long as they keep the quality of the food and service high they will continue to do well. Compared to their other restaurants the ambience in Mill Creek is minimal at best and I’d hope they will upgrade in the future to a larger dining room and more inviting atmosphere.

We go out every year for New Year’s Eve and select a different restaurant each time. Lombardi’s has a great ambiance for family or date night and the wine menu is impressive for their yummy menu. The specials were delicious and our large party all were pleased with their selections.

The only complaint I would have is that the server stopped to watch football at the bar , maybe while waiting for the bartender to serve his requests, but at the expense of our bread and garlic oil taking long to be served. This would not deter me from returning, nor did it make my experience miserable. Food is always good and restarau ts are kept clean.

The food wasn't very tasty. I ordered the Bolognese and I have had much better at chain restaurants. Both steaks that we ordered were overcooked. The pizza we ordered was cold to touch. The waitress did try to make good on the pizza by giving us a discount but overall I wouldn't return.

Food was okay at best. I would say it’s over priced. Service was awful and the waitress had a major attitude problem. I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant that did not season the food. Thank the lord for salt.

I don’t live here, I live on Maui. My longtime dear Friend Derek works there and I was in town, happened to be on his birthday. Wanted to take my mom out for dinner. Immediately when I walked in we were warmly greeted. Sat down in the lounge for happy hour, awesome service. Went to sit in Dereks section. He is just amazing to watch work his tables. He is warm, funny, very informative of the food, and of course wine. Had the butternut squash raviolis with a sage butter sauce. The garlic bread has Gorgonzola. Absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. Amazing food, wonderful service in a very comfortable booth.

Lombardi's is our "go to" restaurant. We just love it! We had our daughter visiting, so we brought her to dinner, which was fantastic! We ordered off of the new fall menu and weren't disappointed. Both my daughter and I literally could have made dinner out of the garlic oil and bread alone!

We are new to town and thought we would try this restaurant just down the street from our new home.
The hostess was put out the second we walked in. My party of 6 was placed at a table for 4. While we were given water relatively quickly, we waited 15 minutes to be greeted by a server. Our server was nice but she was over sat. The only staff we saw working were 2 bussers, 1 hostess, 1 server and 1 manager. Everyone was scrambling the entire time. The pasta I ordered had a weird mouth feel. The pizza my son had was under baked and greasy. I had to get up and get someone’s attention to get a check as it felt like we were forgotten about at every turn. What should’ve been a fun night with family who flew to town to visit us was more claustrophobic and frustrating. As we left the restaurant my husband said, “Lesson learned. We won’t be back.”

Arrived on time at 5:30. Restaurant was empty. Server was polite, prompt and informed. Atmosphere was cheap, phone in the kitchen area that was ringing loudly was audible from the restaurant. Food was average, i.e. If Denny's decided they wanted to offer chicken Marsala. Wine list is sparse.
Adding insult to injury despite the Open Table reservation, we didn't get credit for our visit and didn't get an explanation. Better choices in the area. Should have known better

Service was very poor, waiter ignored a request for a beer and later acknowledged that he forgot to bring the beer. He offered not apology or anything for his mistake. There was a party going on in a room in the back and they had multiple waiters helping them, while general seating had one waiter helping multiple tables. Service was slow and unimpressive.

It was good, but nothing special considering the prices. Our drinks and appetizers/salad were served in a very timely manner. Then, there was a huge delay in serving our entrees - not real sure what took so long. While the food tasted very good, mine was just warm, not hot. It’s obvious our food had been sitting for some time. Our server was very nice and friendly, but seemed to have tables assigned to her all over the restaurant and outside. There didn’t appear to be any rhyme or reason to this. While this was on Mother’s day as well, the restaurant was not overly crowded. There were empty tables and no one waiting to be seated. So, not real sure why they couldn’t manage the tables very well. While I might go there again, it’s not a place I would rush back.
