Came for my son's birthday. We were seated promptly. Waiter greeted us and took drink order. We placed our order and waiter brought bread. He brought more bread and more bread. It took so long to get our food we were so full of bread. The hamburgers where good as was the 2 Chicken Rieslings. My daughter's spicy chicken sandwich was awful. Chicken was rubbery and chewy, they waiter took it off the bill, but my daughter only had fries for dinner. She didn't want to order anything figuring we would all be done eating. The original wait was long enough. We were in the area behind the bar, mood lighting is fine, but when people have to use the flashlight on their phone to read the menu is a bit much.

I come here for a slice or two consistently. The Sicilian pizza is fantastic. The regular is good too, but I’m partial to Sicilian. Always fresh because they sell a lot of it. You can sit at a table or booth and eat, sometimes a welcome break in the day
Their dinner food is also tasty, however I have only had dinner there once, so I can’t really comment

Mamma Lombardi's Restaurant

Reviewed By Busynan - Lake Ronkonkoma, New York

I originally gave this restaurant a poor review based on an unpleasant visit. My husband and I decided to try once more at the behest of the staff. We decided on a pre Christmas holiday celebration and this time we were not disappointed. We were treated with respect from the minute we walked through the door. Our server was friendly , knowledgeable and attentive. Both our meals were served hot and delicious . The experience had taken on a 360 degree turnaround compared to an earlier visit. Happy to say the owners are serious about making each trip to this restaurant both memorable and satisfying to all . Happy Holidays Mamma Lombardi’s.

These bagels are the best bagels I've ever had. They have become a staple in our family since we've lived in the area. The egg sandwiches are out of this world! I can't say enough good things about this place! And even better is that it's a family owned shop - it feels great supporting local business!

Gyros are often dried out and chewy. Not here. They are moist and chewy. Portions are often average. No here . Even the small salads are large. The restaurant may be casual but everything is top quality. Service is good. .We asked for two kinds of
dressing and they happily accommodated us. Everyone went home happy and with doggie bags and the bill was very reasonable.

There is something for everyone with sizes from tiny tastes to enormous. We enjoyed a Pecan Coffee Cake and a Chocolate Log. Both were excellent and very fresh. Note that they are open late even on Sunday which can allow you to pick up an evening treat.

Completely unexpected based on location, but friends have been multiple times and could NOT stop raving about it. Had a FABULOUS birthday dinner for my mother here - everything was super fresh, delicious and we can't wait to go back. The only downside is having to limit your meal choice!
