40th Wedding Anniversary - great experience
Lombardo's is clearly one of my favourite places in any city! Tom, the bartender, is friendly and remembers your name. Food is outstanding as is the service. I went with a friend to celebrate my birthday and when we got to the table there was a birthday card from everyone on the table. Probably due to my profile but impressive nonetheless. If you are looking for fine dining this is definitely one of the best!
As usual, the dining experience was outstanding! Tom and his staff offer a fine dining experience.
Always the best of everything, from valet
parking to walking out the door 5 star and more !
This is one of our favorite places to have dinner. The service is always on point and the food is awesome.
Ristorante Lombardo once again proves just how magnificant dining can be in Buffalo.....fabulous food, fantastic service and a warm, inviting atmosphere!
Went out to celebrate Father's Day and as we are not from the area we relied on internet reviews to choose a restaurant. This place lived up to the reviews. Nice ambience, excellent service, varied menu. We had fried climatic and it was cooked perfectly. Then Caesar salad prepared right at the table. I order Caesar everywhere I go and this dressing was delicious. I ordered lobster ravioli and it was very good. Other choices at my table were a seafood linguine, veal and shrimp scampi(together) and veal marsala. Everyone was full and happy. No room for dessert although there were some tempting choices. Would definitely come here again. On the negative side, the neighborhood isn't the greatest but they do have free valet parking. Buon appetito!
The food, service, and ambiance were excellent! I will definitely be back.
I had high hopes for this restaurant for special occasion. Service was slow, even though there appeared to be several waiters. My meal was good, but half of my ravioli was cold when served. Overall would not recommend with competition in area they were not up to par.
Quality service, food, ambience. Extraordinary.
Food was extraordinary. Service was impeccable. Brought visitors from NYC and they were impressed. Definitely one of the top three dinner venues in western New York. We are repeat customers and, of course, will be back.
This was our first visit to Lombardo’s although we have heard good things about it for a long time. The staff is very friendly and we were introduced to the owners and family members. Service was attentive and efficient not stuffy. We were definitely not rushed. It was so pleasant to enjoy dinner and have a pleasant conversation without having to shout. There are two separate enclosed dining rooms and a seasonal patio separate from a small bar area. I had the beet salad and The Continental, shrimp scampi, veal francaise, and homemade tagliatelle served with asparagus. Excellent. My husband had the caprese appetizer and lobster ravioli. Friends had callamare and tagliatelle bolognese. Also all excellent. Will definitely return. It is not a large restaurant so reservations are a must. Complementary Valet parking is available.
Great service, great food! Perfect dinner- willbe back again!
The service was outstanding. The food was excellent. The waitperson anticipated our every need and any changes to the meal as described on the menu was accommodated immediately. The manager visited our table several times to be sure everything met our expectations.
The restaurant was pricey but the high quality of everything made it well worth the price.
An experience that doesn't disappoint. Food prepared with care and wonderful.
Terrific food, helpful staff, wonderful waitress, lovely evening.
We enjoyed a fabulous dinner as usual. The fig pizza was outstanding ! Their Caesar Salad is the best we have ever had. All four of us enjoyed our entrees The Continental is my husbands favorite. The charming Tommy and Mary are the perfect hosts !
The service and food at Lombardo’s is excellent. They are very attentive without being obtrusive. This restaurant is truly a gem in north Buffalo!
Everything was great
Our first visit to Ristorante Lombardo was noteworthy! The servers were attentive and knowledgeable, the menu had something for everyone, and each dish was fantastic. We had an appetizer, a pasta dish, a dinner plate, and dessert. We split everything and they allow that without charging to split plates. The lobster ravioli was phenomenal, as was the Bannofee pie (banana cream pie with toffee and homemade graham cracker crust). There were many other things we will be excited to come back and try. All first class, from beginning to end. Gorgeous interior and easy parking.
Service was fantastic w/Carline as our server. Food was so tasty - can't wait to go back
My friend and I had a wonderful dual birthday celebration lunch.
I had the most delicious pizza & lovely wine. The place is beautiful & free valet parking, I loved it. Yes
Great service. Superb staff, chef, menu and meal.
The Lombardo family and their exceptional staff always provide a memorable dining experience. It is a beautiful restaurant and my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and to our surprise a congratulations card and two glasses of champagne were brought to our table shortly after being seated. In a nutshell, the meals, deserts and ambiance are outstanding and we highly recommend giving Lombardo's a try for your next evening out or special occasion.
Always a special occasion at Tom's place. The top Italian restaurant in the top 10 of all restaurants in Western New York
A great place to celebrate any event or just dining with family. Our dinner were wonderful and the staff as well. They have a heated patio,which we often enjoy. One of the best trsturants in Buffalo
The food is stupendous and the service excellent. Be prepared to spend $100 a head.
Mr Lombardo is always a bright face when you walk in and is very welcoming. Aaron are server was great. One of my favorite places in the city.
First patio dinner for the season! I was planning on having the fixed price three course menu, until I got there and the server reviewed the daily specials. Soft-shelled crab. From the regular menu, grilled octopus salad and grilled fig salad. Everything very shareable. Knowledgeable servers, and lots of attention from staff without being intrusive. I am so enthused about this restaurant, already planning my next visit.
This was my first visit to Lombardo's. The ambience was terrific, our waitress, Susan I believe, was larger than life both in height and in humor. She knew the menu cold and provided awesome advice. The combination of a terrific wine selection, amazing plates and great service makes this my fave Italian restaurant here in Buffalo. I love octopus and it was served as a delicious appetizer. Grilled and garnished perfectly. My main was linguine nero with shrimp and calamari that also was scrumptious. Finishing off the meal with an Affogato left a fine taste and wonderful memory of a superb restaurant. Awesome work, we'll be back.
superior food. Best pasta in Buffalo. Steak and salmon were just right.
Excellent wine list.
If there is a special occasion where a great meal would put the "final touch" on the day, Lombardo's is the place! Top shelf drinks, expert wait staff, terrific made to order dishes are the main selling points, but the staff's attention to detail is impeccable.
We went for Mother's Day - it was an awesome time - we spent three hours here and had the best service ever. I can't wait to return!
Still my choice as the best restaurant in Buffalo. The Lombardi’s are warm and welcoming.
We don't dine at high end restaurants on a regular basis but everything was absolutely fabulous from the personal greeting at the door, delicious Italian cuisine, A+ servers, and valet parking. Truly added to the special occasion.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Lombardo's. The staff makes you feel special and the food is great. Also, where else can you go and dress up and not feel out-of-place. The noise level was so low that we could actually carry on a conversation without yelling. Lombardo's is the place to go to dine as opposed to just going out to eat dinner.
Had been looking forward to eating here for a few years, and finally had the opportunity. Veal was on chewy side, and steak was fair... maybe. Potatoes so powerfully seasoned to the point of being well overdone and almost unpalatable. Wine (high remarks for their recommendations), shrimp, and pasta were excellent. Expected so much better from things I’d heard, though. Service was very good, valet attendants exceptional, place itself is beautiful, but considering food quality, I’ve paid half and had tremendously better. Even the chocolate creme brûlée (my favorite dessert) was a disappointment. The custard texture was inconsistent and not creamy, don’t know how else to describe other than a stove top pudding gone wrong.
Great ambience, good service! Best salad was good, Wife loved the linguine pasta! I ordered the braised lamb shank and wasn't impressed at all actually (sauce cold and thin)! Calamari was pretty darn oily and saggy! Tiramisu was excellent and we ended ordering another one!
The dinner was to celebrate my son's birthday. Everything was perfect from the food to the service. The special touch of having a birthday card on the table when we arrived was wonderful.
Amazing food and service!
