Lanza's great spot for apps and drinks!

Did not have a full meal here, but the staff was impeccable, and the Calimari was fantastic! Will definitely be back!

My husband and I go to King's Beach on a regular basis for a weekend getaway. We stay at Rustic Cottages which is right down the street from this restaurant. Our last visit was on Valentine's Day and we decided to walk to the restaurant instead of driving so we could sit in the bar and enjoy some cocktails before... More

This is a top restaurant for home cooking type of Italian food. The sauces are some of the best we have ever had. The minnestroni soup if peppery and wonderful, full of all good things to eat. We would recommend this restaurant anytime you are in the area.

This place is amazing; from the second we walked in the door I knew Lanza's would be good! From the red-checkered tablecloths to the Tiffany-inspired light fixtures, even the delicious aroma of garlic and cheese reassured me that this homey Italian restaurant was exactly what I was craving. We spent the day at North Star and I had an overpriced,... More

Lanza's restaurant is always a fun, lively place to eat or drink. They are always packed with a spirited crowd and their food is delicious. We usually get our meals to go, but last time stayed and enjoyed the fun. Garlic bread with cheese is incredible! Since it is so busy, the service is fair but friendly.

This is our favorite Italian restaurant. Food is excellent in a cozy environment. Portions are huge and yummy. We especially love their pizza, stuffed shells, chicken piccata ( with extra garlic), calamari steak, lasagna, and veal parmesan. All meals come with salad and their delicious italian dressing . Their thick, crusty loaf of bread is the best. Most dinners come... More
