50% off at La Lombarda

Welcome to the La Lombarda, Aberdeen's world famous Italian restaurant, situated in the historic Castlegate area at the bottom of Union Street. Enjoy a classic Italian dining out experience of pasta, pizzas, meat and seafood dishes mainly sourced from Local Suppliers, in surroundings which have a friendly and traditional atmosphere.

This beautiful restaurant has seen two world wars, the offshore oil boom and the demise of the city's famous fishing and granite industries. It is still trading successfully at the east end of Union Street in the Granite City's historic Castlegate, with the Mercat Cross, The Citadel, and The Town House just some of the many historic granite buildings surrounding it.

    I recently visited with my girl friend and parents. Everything was perfect from the offset, both female waitresses were perfect and friendly. One had taken the time to share stories about her ice cream experiences from back home in the highlands which my parents appreciated. The atmosphere was quiet but on a Wednesday what can you expect. The food was incredible, the steaks were perfect and the drinks at an average price. Tastecard 50% makes it even better. "

    Everything in this restaurant was perfect for me. My companion and I had different veal dishes and my Saltimbocca Romania was authentic Italian cuisine, well cooked , tasty and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly, efficient and not intrusive. Using the tastecard was easy and really put "the icing on the cake". What a bargain 50% off all food.
    My companion left already planning his next visit to La Lombarda. I would certainly recommend it "

    I went to this restaurant as a total shot in the dark, as I was going out for a meal with my family and there were a limited number of places in Aberdeen that offer a discount for 4+ people.

    I am very happy to say that I had a lovely evening; the staff were very attentive, polite and cheery. The food was a good standard with regards to Italian cuisine (the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that I am still searching for a place that makes proper Italian tiramisu with some alcohol in it!- the tiramisu here was a bit more akin to a sort of cheese cake.)

    However, when it comes to desserts the profiteroles were great! (The best I've ever had in all honesty!)

    Overall I would definitely go back, and with the tastecard this place is a real steal! "
