Quiet Monday night and the
service was very good. Chicken carbonara was excellent while chicken marsala was bland.
Starter salads were very good.

Waited 30 minutes and had to ask for a waitress. When she came she wasn't assigned to our table and her service was terrible. When the correct waitress showed up the service greatly improved. Drinks sat too long before being served and were watered down. Ordered 2 escargot appetizers which arrived completely over done. They were replaced and done properly. Rest of meal was great. Place was extremely noisy with a party of 20 sitting adjacent to our table. Overall very disappointed in what has always been a very good experience.

The food was amazing. We had the Veal Osso Buck that it was so good tender and flavorful. Our server, Kate, was attentive to our needs and gave us great suggestions when asked. Can’t wait to go again.

We had a very nice New Year’s Eve meal in an Italian restaurant we had not tried in our many trips to Myrtle Beach over the years. While a bit bunched up at the hostess stand during COVID was a bit disconcerting, as the hostess was attempting to do multiple things and it took a bit to seat arriving diners, once seated, the service was very good and our order was taken promptly with suggestions for dining selections provided. However, menu selections were a bit limited for the holiday, understandably so during these unusual times as food inflation has impacted the restaurant industry. Wine list was detailed and provided adequate selection in various price ranges, but both of our selections were not available and printed list needs updated as substitutes for those selected were offered at same price so we weren’t sure of similar quality, but we were happy with a Pinot Noir eventually provided - The Calling - a relatively new winery with sponsorship provided by Jim Nantz and Peter Deutsch . Our meals took awhile to deliver beyond appetizer course (a salad would have been nice as part of meal during the wait), but once delivered were very good with a nice presentation, although there was a bit too much lobster cream sauce on top of each meal - a lighter touch would have allowed the tastes of the selected Lobster Ravioli and Seafood Medley (grouper, shrimp and scallops) to shine thru more effectively as both were good in their own way, particularly the grouper. We took desert to go (tiramisu) for a later snack and it also was tasty if a bit small-proportioned. Value for price was very good and the waiter was very attentive and conversational. And the post-Christmas holiday atmosphere was excellent with decorations and a beautiful tree near the entrance. All in all, a very nice evening, and we’ll be back!

The seafood trio is the best..though could use one more shrimp and one more scallop! House salads are great as is the fresh bread and dipping sauce. They used to have major problems with reservations to the point we stopped going there BUT since they joined OPEN TABLE it's been awesome! Handled NYE without any problem!

Everything was great! We came in for New Years dinner, my 15yr old wanted upscale Italian and by the reviews this place look like it would fit that request and it did. I also had my 14month old with us, often when staff see such a young child at a finer dinning establishment we get ‘cringe’ looks, our waitress was amazing with the baby , the kitchen accommodated my request for her dinner even though it was not on the New Year’s Eve menu. All of the food is was amazing, definitely will be a place we visit on our next trip to Myrtle.

My husband and I went for a date night. Based on other reviews, I knew that it might be a slow moving meal so we were prepared to be there a while and enjoy it. We waited at the door for 5 minutes before anyone approached us. Once sat, though, we got served very quickly by a very nice waitress named Katie. She was really fun and very sweet. Our food was outstanding. The chicken lentil soup was the best soup I've ever had. The lasagna was so yummy. The bread and oil dip they give you is just ridiculously good. Our wine was great. There were some really loud people in the bar area where our booth was. They were quite obnoxious, but that's hardly the restaurant's fault! Once they left, it was quiet and romantic. I would definitely come back. I felt like the Seafood Special they had was overpriced, but the items on the menu were very fairly priced.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas dinner at Lombardo’s. Of the many meals we’ve had over the past few weeks visiting the area, our meal here placed #1. The ambiance was cozy and intimate, the warm crusty bread with herbed EVOO dipping oil was delicious, the calamari appetizer was cooked to perfection with a light batter and was accompanied by a lovely marinara. We both selected the the veal Osso Bucco as our main which was fork-tender and plated on a bed of the most creamy and scrumptious vegetable risotto. A generous ladle of beef/wine demi glacé reduction pooled beneath the risotto and veal tied all the flavors together. A small fork was provided to insure every morsel of the Osso Bucco could be enjoyed - the marrow. I knew ahead that my favorite dessert was offered here so I saved room for a delicious Creme Brûlée. The hostess and our server were very welcoming as were the other guests we encountered. It was a very pleasant meal at Lombardo’s indeed. When in the area, we’ll be sure to make reservations here again!

The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas so the ambience was wonderful. The waitress was great and very attentive.
I was not aware that there would be a limited menu for Christmas eve. Perhaps that is their tradition and I can certainly understand doing that if staff is limited, but we were a bit disappointed nonetheless. A little more expensive than I recalled from previewing the menu earlier.
I am very grateful that they were open on Christmas Eve. Meal was very good.

First time here it was a limited menu that was never made available. Service was great food not so good. My chicken was dry and my husband’s Alfredo Sauce was tasteless. No salad or soup was included with dinner. Really disappointed. Didn’t bother with dessert since everything else was disappointing. Will not go back. We will stick with Villa Tuscanna and Caio.

Terrible Grouper, bad Spaghetti, awful rubberized and thinly compressed chicken on Lombardo feast #3. You could find better chicken at Popeyes or Chic Fil A! Service average and waitress didn’t know if fish was fresh??!! Probably not if she “didn’t know”. Yuck! Why would this place get
4 and 5 star ratings? Likely same people who rate Olive Garden 5 stars! People who have no taste buds and see the world through a lens of why can’t we just love everything and everyone? Yes we should love everyone but no I won’t love bad food! One last thing- ridiculous prices for the crappy food. If you are a self-respecting person, go to another Italian restaurant. Coming from DC and traveling the world, this is in need of a complete kitchen overhaul!
