Our 1st time here and found an extensive menu & wine list. Our entrees were delicious! Other patrons' selections also looked wonderful. Our waitperson was very attentive and pleasant. We'll definitely dine here again.

We were seated promptly however we never got a server for 25 mins until we went to the bar. The server had the table directly behind us and he went there several times while he only came to our table a few times. It was a noticeable difference in service and honestly it ruined our whole experience. The food was great but we will never be returning again

Our meal was excellent. The service was friendly and prompt. We shared the Arancine appetizer . We both had the veal parmigiana. Both were delicious. The atmosphere is calming with pleasant background music. Highly recommend if you are in the mood for Italian.

We arrived early and were seated immediately. Our server Melanie was friendly, professional, and attentive. Our apps were very tasty, both the spinach artichoke dip and the arancini.
The peach martini was delicious and the red wine was very nice.
The veal osso bucco was the special and was great. My stack which was a combo of shrimp, crab cake and steak was a disappointment. The steak was I overcooked so our server quickly got another order. It was a lovely dinner.

Spent a week at Myrtle and we found Lombardo's through some reviews. Food was very good and once seated, the waitress was very nice and attentive. Only tiny complaint, there was no hostess to seat us so we had to wait for a waitress to free up to seat us. There was a back log of patrons to be seated. Apparently, there has not been a hostess in over a year

Waited 45 min for drinks, no menus, never given the specials for the day, the Caesar salad was all romaine lettuce core,and drowned in a mayonnaise dressing. Horrible.

This is a great place. The menu is varied, and prices are very reasonable. On top of the printed menu, they always have a large number of specials. Our group made a varied order, some off the menu, many selecting a special, and everything was excellent. Food was hot also, very important to me and many people. Our server was outstanding. In Myrtle it is so important to find places that take reservations. A large group (12) such as ours has no chance to be seated together otherwise. Highly recommend Lombardo's

This is the best Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach!!! The drinks, the bread, the salad, the fantastic soup and the entrees were all outstanding. We were lucky to have Cait as our waitress. She was professional, friendly, attentive and efficient. We definitely will go back to Lombardo’s restaurant for another terrific night out. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I reserved this restaurant Thru open table & I’m so glad I did! No waiting! Our server was like a knowledgeable walking menu!
The Chicken Rollatini was amazing & My husband had the Lombardo‘s lasagna and thoroughly enjoyed it! Both were generous portions! I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking for Italian Cuisine!

We went there for our anniversary and they gave us the most intimate booth right across from the bar. The server/bartender was amazing and gave great recommendations on food. It was the tiramisu you will ever eat! The drinks were amazing! Overall a great intimate spot for couples. Make a reservation for sure and bring an empty stomach.

Great place with great food and ambiance. We had reservations and seated right away. Every table was full when we left. We had calamari appetizer, entrees included baby lamb chops, veal Marsala and chicken parmigiana. Everything was excellent. We are locals and chose this restaurant as one of our go to’s for authentic Italian cuisine.

I hate to say it, but the service was among the worst that I have ever received. It was largely not my server's fault, as she was overwhelmed trying to handle the diners at the bar, fix drinks and serve other tables in the bar area. It was clearly a restaurant staffing issue. My first course was delivered to me 53 minutes after I was seated. I had to wait almost 10 minutes to be seated even though I had a reservation. My iced tea was not refilled for over 30 minutes after the glass was empty. The beef carpaccio was very good, and the veal piccata was good, as was the chocolate mousse cake for dessert, but the service overshadowed it all, with extremely long waits between courses.

Very crowded for a Saturday night but we had reservations and seated right away. Service was lacking however. Water glasses did not get refilled. Had to wait a while between courses. Servers were to busy playing around with each other to notice what was going on with their tables. Food was decent. Very rich and heavy dishes. Music was very loud. Waited over 30 min to get our bill and pay, had to track down the hostess to help us.

Place was very nice , service was excellent. Menu has lots to
Choose from plus daily specials. It was our 1st time here even though we live in Myrtle. We started off with a special appetizer it was delicious fried green tomatoes topped with Gorgonzola cheese & shrimp but was little pricey $14. Dinner I had vodka penne with shrimp was delicious & my hubby had the Lombardos feast #1 chicken & Veal parmigiana he said best he’s ever had you didn’t even need a knife , We both had salads came with the meals 1 Cesar & 1 garden was very good & a nice portion. We had a $10 off coupon which made it even better . We were celebrating our Anniversary. Can’t wait to go back .

Sorry to say poor service; front and back of the house. 20 minutes for a glass of wine, same for sweet n low requests, completely inattentive by Melanie the waitress. Simply things like table wasn't cleared with empty glasses, soup & salad bowls, app plates, and literally had to ask it to be so. 60 minutes wait for soup and salad, two lamb chops raw couldn't eat. Had to ask someone to help not sure of manager or not.
Simply, if your restaurant is under staffed, then don't seat over seat it. Paying customers want average service, always accept more but deserve the minimum. If a restaurant excuse is shortage of labor we should just deal with it, then why charge us full price. I would rather have ordered curbside from Olive Garden than to hear another excuse or experience this poor of an experience again from an excuse risen sit down restaurant. I would have walked out if I wasn't out to a rare dinner with my parents.
Courteous, attitude, and effort is all any of us paying customers could ask for, and deserve. Too bad.

We were a group of 8 with reservations at 7pm. We were sat immediately. Our waitresses name was Fabiola. She was EXCELLENT! I would ask for her if I went back.

One guest had the veal osso buca. It was cooked perfectly and tasted very good. One hues had the Lombardo’s Stack. Shrimp and crab cake was very good. But the steak was tasteless and not as tender as expected for a filet. One guest had the lobster ravioli. Cream sauce was absolutely delicious but it overwhelmed the lobster. Unfortunately it just tasted like cheese ravioli in a cream sauce. Other dishes ordered were the chicken Alfredo, chicken parmigiana, lasagna and spaghetti and meatballs. All were very good.

We would definitely visit Lombardo’s again. I do recommend reservations as they were very busy.
