Lombardo's Pizza, Bar & Restaurant - Whaddyaknow. It's Westchester Wednesday!



Once a month, always on a Wednesday, BookOrBust honors a business owner from the community this writer knows and loves.

Welcome Lombardo's Pizza, Bar and Restaurant!



It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.--Mr. Rogers

If you are looking for a great Italian restaurant that serves delicious Italian food in a friendly atmosphere, then buongiorno, paisan, get on over to 1203 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY 10605, to Lombardo's Pizza, Bar and Restaurant.

Aglow in soft lights and decorated in shades of egg shell, cream and chocolate, this restaurant is devoted to serving good food and dedicated to customer satisfaction.

With two separate entrances and free parking, no matter which entrance you opt for, good eating and great service is one turn of a doorknob away.

Lombardo's has two dining areas: one is a comfortable serve-yourself eating area with cushioned chairs and matching hardwood tables that can expand to accommodate a party of six, plus an on-the-wall t.v. tuned to the sports channel.

Seek a more formal atmosphere? Check out the other dining area. Here a waiter/waitress will take your order and serve you. With high backed overstuffed booths, a diner has his/her own personal private eating space.

Whether you're a single seeking a quick bite, a family of four out and about looking for a place to take the kids, or on a date wanting to impress, Lombardo's meets all expectations.

Here's a sample of what's good:

For pizza lovers, Lombardos offers specialty pies from least expensive Grandma at $21, to most expensive, Buffalo Chicken at $28.

In-between selections include: Margherita, Pizza Bianca, Baked Ziti Marinra, Vegetable, and my favorite, House Special--"A hearty combination of fresh sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, onions, extra cheese, black olives, and tomato sauce;"

More pizza pie selections include Meclum Salad and Crustina--that's a thin crust garlic basted pan pizza topped with fresh sliced garden tomatoes, homemade mozzarella cheese and basil drizzled with a touch of virgin olive oil and seasonings.

Of course, Lombardo's menu is loaded with appetizing appetizers and house specials.

Seafood lovers will find Lombardo's serves the best Baked Clams Oreganato--whole baked little neck clams--and an awesome entree choice of sauteed spinach with rigatoni or, linguini dressed in shrimp, mussels and baby clams.

Meat eaters, there is pasta bolognese and my favorite, Sorrentino--fresh breast of chicken or veal layered with battered eggplant  mozzarella cheese and imported prosciutto Di Parma served in a brown sauce with side of angel hair marinara.

My favorite part of eating out is dessert. Here again, Lombardo's delivers with a separate dessert menu listing homemade Tiramisu, two styles of cheesecake--Italian and NY, chocolate polenta tart and a plate of mini cannolis. Plus, a long list of after-dinner drinks.

Be sure to check out the granite pizza counter framed in pizza oven and see-thru opening with view of spotless working kitchen. This is where the customer *you!* can pick up a to-go order, or order a slice to stay.

You don't have to be a Italian to enjoy good Italian Food. You don't have to live in the neighborhood to eat at Lombardo's. Whoever you are, wherever you're from, Lombardo's is worth the trip.

Just say BookOrBust sent you.
