I love Lombardo's – I live in Texas, but when I visit NY and Albany (or nearby) I always want to go to Lomabardo's. I'll make a special trip. The place is so much fun, the food is so good, the waiters and bartenders are so nice and so much fun. How many places are left like Lombardo's? It's tradition, it's warm and friendly, it's fun. It must be those darned Italians. I always feel happy when I'm there and and after I've left. Lombardo's is the way restaurants are supposed to be. Thank God for pasta and the Italians! Mama mia!

Best Italian Restaurant in the Northeast – This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere: the food is always perfect and the waiters and waitresses treat you like you're a member of the family. On the menu most of the time is a great appetizer: shrimp wrapped in bacon. Another great appetizer/main course are their home made raviolis, with spinach, parmesan and other fillings, with their cream sauce. You could also make a meal out of a salad and their wonderful bread.

Awesome – Don't believe the negative reviews. This was my parents first stop after being married and they have been going back ever since. The food is still as great as it was then. We now take their grandchildren there to eat whenever the family is in town together. Great food, awesome staff and price is very good for the amount you get. Try getting that at the restaurant chains! This is a must stop if you are in the Albany area! Get a reservation to make your trip there easier.

Deb – As this is a favorite of my husband's I have eaten here many times. I have yet to get a dinner here that I actually enjoy. There are so many other Italian restuarants in the area which have much better food and service. Try Valentie's.

Editorial Review – Regulars love that nothing's changed at this Albany mainstay from the decor to the homemade pasta to the friendly atmosphere.

The perfect italian american restaurant – This is what the Italian American dinnig experience should be modled after it seems as though you could be in 1920s movie .Food is always consitent and and very good I was inspired to write this after recently eating at a wannabe Italain tratorria in oregon and wodered why more people seem to be going in that direction.The Itailain american cusine seems to be dying but not here a true jewel in Albanys crown Highly recomended

The Godfather of Italian Restaurants – Every special occasion - from my birthday to my anniversary to anything else I can invent - I demand dinner at Lombardo's. The valet parking is a definite immediate bonus, as the location initially seems worrisome parking-wise. The atmosphere is so authentic you can almost sense Sonny Corleone in the men's room looking for his gun.....I have a dinner that I never vary from, which includes a fresh, always-delicious salad with crisp, hot, yummy bread, a glass of red wine, then on to the veal francais with a side of linguine....I finish it off with tiramasu and coffee.

Two can dine for less than $50 (generous tip included), and love every moment (and every delicious bite) of it! If you go early (as we do, around 5pm or so), there is virtually no wait and the atmosphere is quiet and familiar. The waitstaff has always been pleasant and speedy. Bravo!
