Pizza and Pasta at Lombardi's Robinson's Magnolia


Lombardi's Robinson's Magnolia

The Big Bang Theory is the reason why hubs and I decided to have dinner at Lombardi's in Robinson's Magnolia two nights ago. Watching the series' reruns with my boys is the culprit for my pizza craving in general for the past week or so. Thursday night is pizza night for the lady and the geeks.

A few years ago, my husband and I got really hooked on HBO's Sopranos and had Italian food everyday for months! I even bought The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Artie Bucco.  

Anyhoo, we pretty much got tired of ordering in from the pizza joints near our place, that's why we decided to ditch the series for awhile to have dinner at Lombardi's. Our boys weren't able to go with us because they're at grandma's house.

At first glance, the wood-fired oven is very much convincing. Upon close inspection, you'll see the exposed gas hose on the side. The pseudo wood-fired oven adds a nice touch still.

I was seriously craving for pizza with prosciutto {I heart!!!} that night, so I asked the waiter which one has it. He recommended one of the Pizza Al Forno from the Chef's Specials: Quattro Salumi. Aside from the basic ingredients, such as the fior de latte and the sauce, the pizza is topped with salami, prosciutto, and arugula.

Though they scrimped a bit on the toppings, I say, taste-wise, the pizza is really good. The subtle taste of the mozzarella blended perfectly with the saltiness of the prosciutto and the smoky flavor of the salami. Considering the small amount, I barely tasted the arugula. True to its Neapolitan form, the crust is thin and crunchy, but still maintains an ounce of chewiness.

The dishes at Lombardi's are good for sharing, so it's better if you go there with a group so that you can try a lot of what's in their menu. We only got two during this visit. It was filling enough for my husband and I.

Lombardi's has both fresh and dried pasta on their menu. Of course, if there's a choice such as this one being offered, it's a no-brainer to choose the former. It's just different...for me at least. The Ravioli di Carne  proved to be a winner for me, again, flavor-wise. The meat filling is juicy and savory. I like that the tomato sauce was light and not too acetic.

Lombardi's is opening a branch at the Shangri-Mall's East Wing soon. We're definitely gonna visit that one. They do serve good food and the service is equally praiseworthy.
