For those who have been to Lombardo's previously, you will notice that they have actually gone through some renovations. I have passed by this restaurant before and from my memory, I much prefer the old design. It had much more character and felt more family oriented. The new design is quite nice, but appears as any other fine/casual dining restaurant. Anyhow, only the atmosphere has changed, it is still the same owners, same menu, and same wood oven.
This salad was surprisingly good!! Topped with a couple slices of goat cheese with balsamic reduction = delicious. The candied pecans definitely highlighted the salad. Next time I am on a diet, I am definitely ordering this.
Everyone knows Lombardo is known for their amazing pizza. And I can confirm that this pizza was really yummy! Great flavours. They feature thin crust pizza and the crust of the pizza had a good chew to it. It's also nice that they didn't over dry the mushrooms like Pizza Hut. But this made the pizza a little moist if not consumed right away.
