an enjoyable meal and dinning experience. Nothing like sitting my the fireplace, drinking a nice glass of wine, and enjoying Italian food, at it's finest. Service, food, and drinks were all excellent.

Ordered drinks and appetizer. There were 3 of us. Two got their drinks, the food came, one person did not get their wine and no appetizer was served. Food was cold. Manager was walking around. We told him our issues. He offered to heat up the food but we were done and that was 35 minutes later. Very disappointing as the meal was expensive and we expected more having been there before.

It was a great experience. Probably the best fresh mozzarella I've tasted. I tried the boar bolognese, it was awesome.

Stuffed mushrooms needed salt. The Seven fishes menu almost included no fish, just Shellfish, so we had to order a la carte. Portions are huge. Everyone liked their entrees.

The staff was nice and attentive. The Xmas drinks and ambiance were cool,
and the reason for our visit.

Could use at least one additional vegan/vegetarian option.

Literally our home away from home….outstanding food, wine list, service and
perhaps most importantly, hospitality. One of the very few restaurants offering southern Italian cuisine whose food my Italian-American wife (whose family
came from southern Italy) will eat. That says it all.

The food was outstanding. The garlic bread is to die for. I usually get the lasagna but tried the veal parmesan this time and was very happy. The festive drinks for Miracle Bar were perfect! I love going to Catherine Lombardi at this time of the year.

The Xmas decorations were the ONLY good thing about the evening. Miracle bar drinks were super expensive and they give you a lot of ice. For our date night dinner I ordered Filet Mignon and I had to return it! It looked like a hockey puck on the outside and red on the inside. Not the way I had ordered it and it was cold! They brought me another one….pretty much the same thing. My husband ordered the Lasagna….. it was a pound of ground beef on top of overcooked noodles and the sauce was terrible. Super expensive evening! NOT worth the money. Service was mediocre. We will NEVER go back to Catherine Lombardi’s. Place is overrated.

We went out for our annual Christmas dinner with friends. What a wonderful evening. The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was festive and the restaurant was decorated beautifully. Thanks to Mark for seating us at the perfect table. And what a great touch offering menus from both of his terrific restaurants.

We went to Catherine Lombardi’s to see the Miracle Bar decorations. It was decorated with lights and decorations like a winter wonderland. Cocktails at the bar were served in holiday glasses. Pasta with Bolognese sauce was delicious. Entrees are a bit pricey. Tiramisu was one of the best I’ve had. It was a fun start to the holiday season. The wine shop on first floor had a great selection of wines.

Visit Catherine Lombardi's for wonderful Italian food! The atmosphere, food and service are high quality and never disappoint. The garlic bread is fab, caesar salad ever so fresh and main courses totally delicious. This visit we had lasagne and veal parmigiana. Can't say enough positive about Catherine Lombardi's!
