Lomeli's is a restaurant with no windows. You enter and its always nighttime in lomeli's. What that means is that while the place is small and the food is good, its a perfect place to come no matter what time of day it is. Lomeli's restaurant boasts some of the best Italian food I've had in a long time (personal favorite is the eggplant Parmesan) not to mention the guiness book of world records hula hoop champion (I kid you not) the food is what keeps people coming back. Also does takeout and orders can be phoned in. Try the pesto! more

Owner Message

  • Carlo Lomeli, founder of Lomeli's Italian Restaurant, Inc., started his restaurant career in 1968, at age 14, as a busboy for Sala's Italian Restaurant in Lawndale. <br>By age 16, Carlo realized that he had a tremendous passion for cooking; while at Sala's he learned how to cook and became their main chef. He loved every minute while in the kitchen and decided, from his experience, his lifelong career would be that of a restaurateur. As a result of his close working relationship with Arthur, John and Ted Sala, they became good friends. Carlo was fortunate to have worked with these wonderful employers who were willing to teach him all they knew about running a restaurant. At age 18, Carlo became Sala's manager and worked for them until 1977. He was now 23 years of age and felt he was mentally and financially ready to venture out on his own. First, he wanted to gain more managerial experience so he went to work for Shakey's (on Torrance Boulevard in Torrance) and enrolled in a night c ourse in business management, which was held at a public school in Lawndale.. On December 11,1978,Carlo bought Big Joe's Italian Restaurant. In 1979,he changed the name to Lomeli's Italian Restaurant. He celebrated the name change and the first anniversary by giving his customers a 50% discount on all dine-in bills between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. This has become a tradition,which is celebrated every year. The actual anniversary is in December,but because he is so busy with holiday parties during December,he usually has the celebration the second Tuesday of January each year. Anyone interested in knowing the actual date of the anniversary celebration should call Lomeli's in mid-December. <br><br>In 1984,he opened a second restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Hermosa Beach; however,due to a slow economy from 1990 through 1994,and elevated rental expenses,he closed the Lomeli's Hermosa location when the lease expired on November 21,1994. <br><br>Carlo also manages his wife Lori Lynn Lomeli's hula-hoop career. She is considered to be the world 's best hula hooper. They were married in 1988 and have two children -- Ray,14,and Lorilynn,9. Carlo also has a 20-year-old son,Robert,from a previous marriage.
