The Lombardo family had previously been in the retail food industry, operating Liberty Supermarkets in the East Boston area. However, the concept of Lombardo’s as a function facility began when East Boston residents started requesting that an empty hall (the Boston Suite), be made available to host functions. The result was the opening of Lombardo’s Function Hall in East Boston in 1963 by Paul and Sal Lombardo (sons of Nina and Vincent). The Lombardo’s successful approach of providing fine food, drinks and service to all of its guests lead to an increase in demand. The result was an expansion of the company with the addition of the East Suite, which offered a more luxurious atmosphere with its ornate tapestries and magnificent chandeliers. This offered an upscale, elegant location for hosting weddings, showers and anniversary parties. By 1970, Lombardo’s saw an increase in requests for more rooms to accommodate smaller groups for business meetings and luncheons, which resulted in the additions of the West and North Suites, allowing the company to begin catering to the business community.
