Four different entrees, four happy campers. If your after lasagna or spaghetti with meatballs look for a different Italian restaurant. This is an upscale Italian restaurant with choices from rabbit stew to pork shoulder to pan seared halibut. Apple donuts and gelato were excellent deserts. Service spectacular, atmosphere "collegey".

As an Italian and foodie this is clearly the top Italian restaurant in in Madison, and one of the best restaurants, period.

Just returned from New Orleans where we dined at some of their top restaurants. Lombardino's menu and quality of food were every bit as good.

The food is always great and the menu changes seasonally with a few of their special dishes offered year-round. The service is both personable and professional. When I want Italian in Madison, Lombardino's is my first choice.

We'd hadn't been to eat here since '06. Expected it to be good but were blown away by attention to detail. Everything was great. Food and service. We ordered off the specials menu. Started with calamari appetizer. Tender, flavorful. Came with red sauce and horse radish. Perfect. My wife chose chianti for wine. Very good. We ordered entrees off the specials menu for that day. I had an organic mushroom ragu. Out of this world. My wife had scallops, shrimps, muscles on pasta. Tasted wonderful. If there was one criticism, it would be that she thought it would be on top of more pasta. Was only a handful of small noodles. Desert was cherry gelato with a Door County topping. Excellent. Waitress was very attentive. Just an overall great dinner.
