Best meal we have had in quite a while. Nice ambiance, excellent food, and Cait was a great server. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Husband had steak - perfectly cooked. I have seafood trio with lobster risotto underneath. Spectacular.

Food was delicious although we expected larger portions. Don't get me wrong - they weren't small. But we could have easily eaten more. My complaint about the service was how long it took to be approached after sitting down.... as well as the time it took for the bartender to pour wine for us. Wine should be a simple pour. But the bartender was also acting as the server in the bar area. Overall, it was a good experience. I would definitely recommend to others.

Very busy, short of staff. Lovely waitress, but only four servers for the large crowd that was present. No social distancing, but we were lucky to have a back booth that was removed from the bar scene.

We were there on a very busy night and it was obvious that help was short. Our waitress was very pleasant and good at what she does but you could tell she was working overtime to try and keep up with everything and be pleasant with her customers. Food was good but escargot was overcooked salad was good but I think prepared a little ahead of time as it was a tad warm and a little droopy. Bread was good. For an Italian restaurant I feel it was a little overpriced. It is a place I might go back to when COVID is no longer an issue and help is more plentiful. I think food issues may not be a problem as they have gotten very good reviews in the past and it was obvious they were trying very hard to keep up and give everyone a decent experience under the circumstances

We enjoy Lombardo’s, however on Friday they were slammed. Large groups standing in the small bar area waiting to be seated. The wait staff moved quickly but were attentive when taking our order. Our food had some mixed reviews. Escargot just OK. Italian soup was excellent! Chicken piccata was OK. Blue cheese gnocchi were not edible, sent them back. They were hard. It appeared that the blue cheese was put on the gnocchi and then placed under the broiler. The veal ossco was excellent. Parmesan risotto was very nice. The calamari is really tasty also. We will be back

Really enjoyed dinner at Lombardo's last week. It was one of the few fine dining options in Myrtle Beach. It offers excellently prepared traditional Italian food. The servers were very attentive and helpful. The restaurant decor and ambience is of an very nice "old fashioned" formal Italian restaurante. Highly recommend and would return next time we are in Myrtle Beach.

Excellent evening-service was slow as the restaurant was crowded and didn’t seem to have the staff to support the activity. We were not in a hurry so in the end it was all good. Food was excellent and dessert was on the house in appreciation for our patience. Overall- excellent!!

We had a 6:30 reservation but we were not seated until after 7:00. Host seemed overwhelmed, there was no way for us to check in when we arrived.

Once seated we had a delightful dinner and our server did a fine job.

We went for our anniversary dinner, we were on vacation. With a reservation we waited 30 minutes to be seated because nobody came to the door, then when they did they didn’t know where to put people. We were put in this tiny room that was completely full... absolutely no covid restrictions?? Then, our waitress came over 15 min later, finally took our drink orders then didn’t even bring our drinks for another 10 minutes, we ordered our dinner and got bread before our drinks got there. The bread was so hard you could barely bite it, the tiny room we were in was SO loud it was not even enjoyable. We got our food, which was completely wrong and my boyfriends meal was awful too. Within 15 minutes of leaving we were both sick as dogs. This place is awful. We asked for our checks when we got our meals because we knew it would take forever. I wouldn’t recommend this to ANYONE, especially someone like us trying to find somewhere nice to go for a vacation dinner. I’d rather wait 2 hours somewhere else. I asked for spaghetti with the sauce and meatballs on the side too... this is what I got?? Bare noodles with meatballs and no sauce? Okay .. no thank you!

Reservations were easy. We sat down within minutes of arrival. Staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Food was amazing. From the beginning bread to the finished dessert, portions were ample. Could have used more shrimp and scallop on my meal as I was only given two each, that’s my only complaint. Went in with my 3 kids ages 14,12,9 and we all enjoyed it. I wouldn’t say it’s for younger children as it’s relaxing and calm. Price was decent, $160 for us all.

We felt like we were sitting on top of people. The restaurant was very hot until about halfway through our dinner. The taste of the food was good but we seriously thought we had received appetizer portions of our entrees. We ordered chicken Marsala and lobster ravioli. Don’t order them if you are hungry. The atmosphere was otherwise pretty good and a server was great. Ciao is much better.

We intended to sit at the bar, and while friendly the bartender was clearly more interested in talking with the other patrons at the bar. Too bad because we are ex servers and very good tippers. We switched and got a table. Food and service in dining room was very good.

The food is usually excellent but the appetizer, escargot, was not very good and definitely not the way it’s been cooked in the past. I’ll give it one more chance and if it doesn’t improve I will go somewhere else.

On a golf trip with friends and family. Found this on Open Table. Portions are very fair, food was very good, service was very good. OK wine list, not a lot of good glass choices. We enjoyed our time for sure. Don’t pass on Lombardo’s.

We came back because we ate here just 2 days prior. The service was poor and we waited 20-30 minutes for our cappuccinos - they were awful and the cups only half full. The server didn’t charge us for them. I was looking forward to the coffee drink, as the one I had previously was excellent.
