The food was delicious but we did not get sat on time for our reservation. We were the only people waiting with plenty of open tables and the hostess disappeared for about 30 mins until a waitress finally came and sat us

After making a reservation for my fiancé and I’s engagement night with open table, I promptly contacted by the manager to arrange a bottle of champagne waiting at the table for our arrival. The entire night and every aspect of our experience was absolutely outstanding. I had the veal chop special. Perfectly cooked and exceptional in all regards. Accompanying the veal chop was a vegetable risotto recommended our waiter, and without a doubt one of the best risottos I’ve ever had. My fiancé had a filet special with incredible jumbo prawns. The 8oz filet was cooked to perfection as were the prawns with an outstanding white pasta. A huge thank you and compliment to the Chef and the entire staff of Lombardo’s for an incredible experience and wonderful meal!

As always, our experience at Lombardo’s was great! We were seated quickly, our service was fast and friendly, and our dinners were absolutely delicious. We never felt rushed but instead relaxed and enjoyed dining with friends before going to the Blues game.

We were patrons of the original Lombardo’s for special occasions when we were dating in the early 70s and still consider this restaurants as one of our favorites.

Lombardo's Trattoria is my favorite place to eat in the city. Their homemade ravioli is simply amazing. After you have it you will always be disappointed in the frozen ones served in other restaurants.

We visited St. Louis for a long weekend and seriously looked forward to some good Italian food. Luckily, we stayed at the Hilton in Union Station. This gem is right around the corner. Audrey was our server. She was delightful. My husband and I each ordered a different veal dish. They were both excellent. The cannoli was incredible. We look forward to returning next time we are in St. Louis.

Lombardo’s is our favorite restaurant in the entire St. Louis area. They are always eager to please, even customizing a dish to your request. Their recipes are generations shared. Their toasted raviolis are the best. The flash fried spinach is a must try.
We have never been disappointed!

Excellent service by Audrey. We started with a shared small Caesar salad which was nicely split in the kitchen and a perfect size for us. We both chose veal dishes.. saltimboca and Luciano with peas and artichokes. Both dishes came with spinach pasta which was outstanding. We had a lovely barbera to wash it done. Great event!!
