I don’t understand some of the lesser ratings of this place, I think they are phenomenal! Food was VERY tasty and the service we received was exceptional, especially for how busy they were. We didn’t wait or want for anything. GREAT bang for the buck! I think that some people don’t understand how hard it is to find good help these days and unfairly judge the services provided to them.

Our overall experience at Lomardo's Italian Restaurant is 3 stars. Loxarion is excellent, service 2 stars, we waited 10 minutes before the hostess greeted us. The food was ok, but I was expecting authentic Italian, but was somewhat disappointed.

We met some out of state relatives at Lombardo’s last evening. Even though we had some wait time and were pushed into a tight corner area of the restaurant, our server Morgan did an excellent job of taking care of us on a busy night. It did feel like the restaurant was a little short staffed as it was apparent that she was taking care of many tables - but she was very friendly and efficient and always had a smile when talking to us. Our table of 4 enjoyed our entrees but admittedly were disappointed that they were out of one of the white wines that we selected. The substitute recommended was more expensive and not as flavorful but we also understand these are difficult times for most places. We will definitely be back and will definitely ask for Morgan on our return as she was delightful and made our eating experience memorable!

It was so loud that the server had to bend down to table level so she could take our order. We didn’t even say anything and she apologized for the noise level. Tables were so close I could have eaten off of the plate of the group next to us. BUT, the food and service was excellent.

Unfortunately it seems they had multiple call-offs, there was no hostess, so us and several other groups stood in the entrance for more than 15 minutes prior to talking to anyone. We knew they were understaffed because a customer came over and told us, almost suggesting we should all leave. Eventually a waitress came over and started seating everyone. The wait staff preformed well, even though they were overwhelmed. It took awhile to get drinks and food, but they all ware moving as fast as they could.

Reservation was for 7 pm, we got there 10 min early, we were seated at 7:40. No waitperson or even water for 10-15 minutes. Three people in the party ordered lasagna . It was not until approx an additional 20 min when food should have been coming out that they came back and told us they were out of lasagna…..so we had to reorder a different dish. I tipped the waitress 20% because my kids wait tables and I figured it was not her fault. We will not go back…..

Nothing was bad-fried calamari was just ok. Caesar salad was overdressed. Shrimp scampi was floating in sauce. Mushroom ravioli, lobster ravioli, bread & tomato basil soup were very good to excellent. Desserts just ok. Flickering light over our table-very annoying!

My husband and I were here for dinner we had a reservation. We had to wait almost an hour for seating but the wait was worth it because the food was amazing!!!!!! Felt bad for the staff. They were short staffed like most places so do please be patient with them. But HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!! It’s a must to visit when in Myrtle Beach for Italian food.

Melissa was absoluately wonderful with service, friendly very personable.

The bar was very slow getting the drinks ready for Melissa, other reviews stated that as well. The bar was not busy in the least....

As far as the food, two meals were very good. One meal was totally not what was ordered, the veal was very tough. Melissa was so great, she removed the one meal from the bill, not being asked to do so, that was incorrect and not up to standard.

We are residents of the area and looking for hometown gems to frequent. We will dine again, after tourist season. Possible the kitchen was overwhelmed and possible not enough kitchen staff. It is difficult for restuarants in our area to keep up with service since Covid, employees possibly did not return after are our area was reopened.

We stumbled onto the restaurant as a last resort through open table. Kate was our server. She was amazing. The quality of food and portion size was fantastic. Some of the best Italian we’ve ever had. Definitely worth the trip.

One of the best dinning experiences, made possible by our server Cait. Cait was one of the Greatest. We were there on July 4, so it was a limited Holiday Menu. What my wife wanted was not on the menu, so Cait said let me go ask the kitchen and they fixed the dish. Above and beyond and the food was very good. Recommend this place highly for food and service. If you want the best ask for Cait!

The restaurant was busy which is to be expected. It took 20 mins to get our bottle of wine but our waiter Carlos explained they were backed up and short staffed which was completely understandable. Carlos was doing a great job. The calamari was frozen and not fresh but the price was cheap, the pork chop was very thin and overcooked with too much salt. Our seafood dish was good except it wasn't risotto. It was more a minute rice covered in sauce, there was no cream to the dish. They did try there best and the food prices were great but the actual food missed the mark.

This was our second time visiting Lombardos’s and they didn’t disappoint. We had friends visiting who loved the food. From the fried calamari to the shrimp Marsala and grouper Florentine all were outstanding and among the best we’ve ever eaten. Can’t wait to go back again.
