the family

The Lombardo family has owned and operated this local landmark pizzeria since 1986 – 30 years. Patti has raised her three daughters, Elizabeth, Giulia and Sonia in the business and they continue to be integral part of the restaurant. Executive chef, Giulia brings her unique and creative cooking inspiration to the kitchen.  Chef Giulia has made numerous T.V and media appearances and is currently developing her YouTube series, “JUST GIULIA” where she showcases her easy to do recipes in fun short videos. Elizabeth and Sonia stay busy in the front of house running the day to day operations.

authentic italian cuisine
Being a part of Commercial Drive over the changing years, our family has been inspired by the growing movement in food consciousness. The relationship between local ingredients and how our food is prepared and served is undoubtedly a corner stone in Lombardo‘s philosophy. Commercial Drive has grown to over 200 restaurants in the last 10 years and changes in customer wants and desires have evolved. Lombardo’s, though, has maintained our traditional approach to food while maintaining our close ties to locally sourced fresh produce from local green grocers. In addition, meeting often with our long time Italian suppliers to keep ahead of the curve while using only the best imported products from Italy.
