Great food and wine at a very reasonable price.
Very, very noisy! I had difficulty hearing my dinner companion.
Wait staff is inexperienced and/or not properly trained. No bread plates came with our bread basked and olive oil/vinegar dipping sauce. Very messy. We ordered the Prix Fixe and after the appetizer, the waiter asked me to keep my knife and fork for the next course. After our main course a wait staff member came to us with two deserts. We told him that we had not yet ordered desert yet and he said, "Well, do you want these?".

I will go back for the food but I will arrive early to avoid the noisy crowd.

Pleasant setting, enjoyable food. We were meeting with old friends and wanted to just talk for quite awhile before ordering food and there was no problem from the staff about that. Noise level is moderate so you can actually talk to people!

We always have a good time at Lungomare. The menu was very tasty on Valentine's Day . We love to have a cocktail at the bar where Felix, our favorite bartender, knows exactly what we like and makes us great drinks.

We arrived 10 minutes early and were told that we had to wait at the bar. We figured that since it was Valentine’s Day, no tables were available. 15 minutes later we were seated and were surprised to find the restaurant half empty. Why were not we seated sooner. The menu was reduced to a Valentine’s Day menu with very little choices. The waitress was helpful in finding in finding something acceptable on the menu. However the pork dish she helped us to select was very fatty and the polenta that was to accompany it was non existent. Overall all an okay experience, but we will look for another restaurant next time.

Not quite there. Asked for a robust Italian wine and was pointed to Italian grapes grown in Napa - instead sampled the Italian chianti and a barbera, both were disappointing as was my wife's California Cab. We were asked if anchovies on the salad were ok, said yes, but found the flavor too strong. The calamari appetizer was fishy and we decided not to eat it. The prosciutto small plate was of the quality you get from a package at safeway and the radicchio was a bit overwhelming in its bitterness and quantity. Best plate was a sausage with a risotto of bulgar wheat - but you have to like butter.

Service was just fine, view is very nice overlooking the estuary. Overall made me miss Boca Nova.

Went for brunch, French toast seemed like it had not been dipped in egg, only warmed on grill. Food was not hot and somewhat bland. Salad dressing on chopped salad tasted like vinegar only. However service was quick to accommodate which was appreciated.

Good food and great service. Went for restaurant week and was able to make same day reservation. waited for maybe 15 minutes before getting seated. After a few minutes, our server right away asked if we were ordering the prix fixe menu and then said red or white. She did nor rush us to order. I started with the fried cardoons which were okay but I ordered since it was an unusual ingredient. The meatballs were fantastic! Light and not dense

The service here was okay, OpenTable wasn't working on their end so they couldn't see my reservation. They seemed a little stressed about it. At first they seated us indoor when I asked for outdoor. They fixed it, but seemed a little upset about it. Waiter didn't come around to check up on us. Staff was rushed and managers seemed rude.

The food and drinks were great.

I've been to Lungomare several times over the last couple of years, on each occasion the food is very nice but the service is terrible. The servers are very slow from the moment you enter the door until the time your check arrives. It's a shame the service is so slow, because the food is very pleasant, although the servings are small by US standards. If the service could be improved, this could be a nice restaurant.

The Christmas dinner of Prime Rib was fabulous. The only problem was with the seating. When reserving I had asked for a table with a view of the water. The hostess ignored that and tried to seat us at a table at which the ocean view was obscured, so I had to insist we were moved to another table. Throughout the entire meal, a table right by the window remained unoccupied. That was hard to understand, as we asked about the table and were told it was unavailable. Unavailable for WHAT? is our question.

Started off with the host who we argued with over a table. They had one set up for 8 by the wait staff station. (REALLY loud direction yelling in the kitchen by the lead chef? I thought I was on a crazy chef reality show). We had 6 people. I pointed out a table for 6 that was open and I was told "But that is for people with a reservation." Well, we had a reservation. There were probably 5 other options throughout the half empty restaurant. After going back and forth they gave us another table. Probably one of the worst meals I have experienced of late and I dine out regularly. POOR service was the culprit. The young lady had to be flagged down instead of regularly checking in on us throughout the meal. It took a total of 30 minutes after being seated before we had our drinks brought to us (Including the 15 minute wait for the waitress to even come to the table after our arrival). THEN they brought out two of the entrees after another half hour wait and no one had yet received their appetizers and salads. The menu clearly stated the meal was set up in courses. We sent that back and then comes out two side orders of potatoes. Sent that back. The staff bringing it out blamed the waitress and the way she put in the order. Then 20 minutes later come the appetizers, salads, etc. Fortunately I was there with people I love and we enjoyed each other's company. But I felt embarrassed because I had arranged the restaurant and was paying for the meal. So many other goofs --- too much to list. The saddest thing about the service was that the restaurant never got more than two thirds full while we were there --- no excuse. To top it off the food was just ok. Never going back. Never recommending.

We have been here before for several dinners but we believe that the food and service have improved !!! The meal started with the smoked salmon & burratta and we each has a fabulous pasta dish--Trofie with a pesto lemon sauce and Chitarra with house made ink squid pasta.. They gave us a complimentary dessert--Budino which was delicious... Our server was Angel and she was very warm ,professional & attentive. We have recommended this on our Facebook pages and now friends/neighbors/family are going...

The food was good enough but staff was very amateurish. Came in on time for our reservation at 1 pm on a Saturday but no one was at the lobby to meet us. The restaurant was fairly empty. After waiting about 5 minutes, I walked in and asked one of the servers if we just go ahead and seat ourselves. I was told that the hostess will seat us and that she was seating someone at the time. After another 5 minutes, the hostess came walking back with the manager from the back of the restaurant and told the same server I talked with to seat us. The manager seem miffed at me that I had talked to the server to begin with. Any restaurant worth its salt should always have someone in front to greet patrons but not here.

We were seated given the brunch menu but when we inquired if we can order from the dinner menu since we did not want brunch, we were told no. We had to ask for bread. Most restaurants we frequent give you water and bread after you are seated. I was looking forward to some Italian food . After all, it was an Italian restaurant, but had to settle for prime rib and eggs. First time I paid so high a price for a breakfast entrée! Another thing, our place settings were just fork and a butter knife. When the prime rib and eggs came, no steak knife was provided although the butter knife sufficed. I am being a little picky here but I am used to good service and amenities when paying premium prices.

Our server was accommodating but service was not the fastest. I guess when you have the gratuity automatically added due to the size of our party, there is no need to pay too much attention to our table particularly when the place is almost empty.

Bottom line: If craving good Italian food at lunch during the weekend, go anywhere else but here.

I would like to try this restaurant again. Unfortunately our group of 7 arrived at 8:45 pm and we were told we had less than 10 minutes to review the menu. It was a Wednesday night and no one was in the restaurant.

I had the kale salad and squid ink pasta and it was ok. we wanted to add protein to the salad and we were told not an option which was disappointing.

The brunch was okay, I had the frittata which was ok. My date had the steak he said it was delicious. But the hottest was horrible. I don’t know if she was just having a bad day or if she is just rude but she was rude treating us and when she sat us she just threw the menus on the table and walked away. We both looked at each other like “whoa!” It did not start our breakfast off very well and definitely worried me about the rest of the meal. However the server was very sweet, the food came out promptly and correctly cooked and the view was great
