Wait staff is rude! It appears that based on the other reviews, this is not a concern with the management. Atleast 2 of the meals, the chicken was could not be eaten.

Ate at Lamberti's on 10/15/11. Had the salmon with grilled vegetables. It was very good. The service was also good. The only thing I thought was tacky is they have a big piece of paper over their nice table clothes. It makes it look like you are going to crack some crab legs on the paper or maybe they should give you crayons so you can draw. I thought it would look classier, if the paper was off. The prices reflect a nicer atmosphere, then paper on the tables.

My family and I used to go to this restaurant all the time when i was growing. however, a few years ago we stopped going. Today my dad recommended we eat there . let's just say, I remembered why we stopped going there. We waited about 10 minutes for the waiter to acknowledge us. we ordered waters. about 5 minutes later, we got our waters and placed our order. the meal comes with salads and bread. every restaurant i goto, gives us bread before we even order. 15 minutes later, we asked for our bread and salad. keep in mind, we saw people come in after us enjoying their salad and bread. The waiter does not come back until we get our meal 20 minutes later. i ordered capallini with pesto on the side. my dad got penne with marinara on the side. we both specified that we wanted our pasta dry.how long does it take to make that? The waiter comes with our meals. My pesto was on the side, but my pasta was not dry. it was drenched in olive oil. this was definitely not pesto. i couldn't taste any basil or pine nuts. it was all olive oil. also, the portion was equivilant to a side dish, not a main meal. at that time, we requested more bread. i admit i love their pizza bread. we never received it. we are seeing people getting unlimited breads and we were like where is ours. also, the waiter never once asked us if we wanted more water( we both finished ours). After we finish eating, the waiter finally comes back. i asked where is our bread. he was like " oh its an extra charge". did you assume, that we would not pay for it. give us the option! I asked since when does a restaurant charge for bread. This is not a 3 star Michilin restaurant. he leaves. comes back with our check. how do you know that we don't want dessert, coffee, or more water! I goto the manager to complain. All we wanted was an apology for the service. Instead, he told me to write a review on yelp. I guess he will take any publicity. I will not be coming to this restaurant ever and will be encouraging people not too. If you want great food and amazing service- GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

The food was great, atmosphere nice, music in the background. The serving staff seemed annoyed anytime they were asked or beverages, more coffee etc. The wait staff can change the whole experience, it is a shame they don't realize that. Too bad .
