Dave & Martha are very friendly & know some of my family! We love their sandwiches, especially the garlic salt! The shop is closed on Sunday & Monday... read more

Lorenzo's makes good sandwiches. It's all they do. They don't to anything else and I love them for it. The sandwiches aren't the 10 pound monsters you'll get at the new breed places like Mr. Pickles, but thank god. I don't need a sandwich that feels like I should send it to Africa so that it could feed a village.... More

I always do takeout. The sandwich shop is in a very small space. I have never been disappointed. I like the turkey with avacodo on a Dutch roll the best.

Great sandwiches at good price. We have been getting sandwiches here for years. My son and his friends loved coming here from Carlmont HIgh School way back in the 80s.

Highly recommend; I've been eating here for 10 years. They make great sandwiches consistently and are way better than the Mr. Pickles down the street. Show up early for the sourdough rolls; as they tend to sell out quickly.

Lorenzo's makes the best sandwiches around! The proof is the line going out the door every day. They are family owned and employ local people - many of them children of people we know in the community - I really believe in that. The breads they use are insanely fresh and their garlic sauce is the best. If near Belmont... More

I've stopped at Lorenzo's many times. You can get a solid sandwich. Be prepared for a bit of a line during lunch periods of the day. Also, be prepared as they only take Cash. I have tried several of their sandwiches and they are very good. They have some very good dressing for the sandwiches which really helps bring out... More

Quick fast service, good menu, vegetarian friendly, and friendly service. Only downside is no seating. This is a good old fashioned simple deli.

This small shop has been in Belmont for over 30 years. This should speak for itself. This shop makes excellent sandwiches and you never finish with out being full.
