Lombardi's was our 4th stop. It's overrated. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, but not as great as I expected it to be since Lombardi's the 1st licensed pizzeria joint .
We got there around 6pm, so there was no wait, and ordered 1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 mushroom:
and the close up:
As you can see, they were very serious at making it a half pizza --leaving 1" of just cheese in between....the sauce is like puree --not paste and not sweet.
The waitress was generous on the wine:
I don't think I've ever been to a restaurant where they filled my glass to almost the rim. Once I tasted the pinot grigio, I realized why they fill it up to the rim --they want to get rid of their sh*tty wine. I took a couple sips and I was done with it.
In a nutshell, I'll pass on Lombardi's and have more pizza at Pizza Gruppo or at Di Fara.
