Birthday celebration. Party of six. Ages 16-70. Everyone ecstatic about their meals. Spaghetti and meatballs, specials, 8oz pork loin, shrimp fettuccine alfredo, lombardos laz, with an Arancini appetizer. Again, all were phenomenal. Desserts were just average. Creme brulee, cheese cake and chocolate layer cake were good but as I said, average. Melanie was our server. Very good. Although service was slow, she was busy with many other customers and did a great job with us.
You should be ready for a little longer dining experience. As everywhere else, they seem light staffed. And we’ve “heard there might be a slight wait even with a reservation. We waited about 15 minutes while they cleared a booth. We asked for a table and were told there weren’t any.
We will be back. The Italian cuisine here is first rate.

Overall quite good. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about menu and made good suggestions. Excellent wine list.

Service was attentive without being rushed.

First visit to Lombardo’s, will definitely return and recommend for anyone visiting Myrtle Beach.

Food is good, but not exceptional! Servers were slow and final bill was botched, but ambiance was nice, but somewhat loud because it was crowded!

We were excited about having a great Italian meal for our anniversary. When we walked in the hostess staff seemed to be flustered with the minimal amount of folks waiting and it went down hill from there. We were seated on time for our reservation but our waitress was extremely slow and inattentive. We didn’t get silver wear or napkins until after our salads arrived (40-45 minutes.) The drinks were good and the bar tender seemed to have things well under control but the rest of our experience was very poor food, and i can’t express how slow and terrible the waitress/wait staff was. It really did ruin our meal. My wife’s chicken parm was burnt and almost not worth eating. We didn’t dare send it back for fear we would be waiting an hour longer. Maybe we are spoiled to have amazing food on The Hill but this was not good.

This is the first time i have left an Italian restaurant hungry. We ordered stuffed peppers and arnacini app and they were tiny. The entrees of chicken rollatini and Lombardo Laz were both good tasting but ridiculously tiny. Never had our drinks refilled.

I ordered the salmon with peaches and pecans. I requested my salmon to be medium rare. What I got was a well done, dry piece of salmon. I was disappointed, but I am a person that does not send back food. When you go to a restaurant that is not a chain I’ve always had amazing meals. This meal was a disappointment. Everyone else loved their food.I was the only problem because I made a special special request.

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.
