This place holds a lot of people, so don't assume if the parking lots full that there will be a wait. Our party of 4 was seated immediately, our waitress was friendly, and our wine arrived immediately (generous pour). The food was overpriced and average in quality ($19 for a plate of pasta with marinara seems high). I had the... More

Like our waitress told us, "We don't do anything small here!" Both of our dishes were wonderful! And luckily our room had a refrigerator and microwave so we could enjoy our leftovers the next day. Otherwise we would have really hurt ourselves trying to eat it all that night! Love this place!

Try the stuffed shells. Split it if you can. They give you a lot of great food. Very cozy place too. Go early because it gets crowded.

We really liked the salads with the house vinaigrette dressing. However my spaghetti with white clam sauce was flavorless. I kept putting salt on it and finally had to ask for a side of marinara to throw on it for some flavor. My husband had the veal and pepper dish which was pretty good. If you're hungry, they do give... More

The food is great. I grew up with a grandma that came from Italy thus great Italian cooking. Lanza's is the best home style Italian cooking I've had since the passing of my grandma. Our family has been going here for 25 plus years and they are never a disappointment! From their great atmosphere to their great service and staff... More

Old time family charm with all the trimmings. Set in a perfect spot across the street from the shores of Lake Tahoe. I have been stopping by when in the area since they opened , with fond memories of Mama greeting you. Bread and pasta at it's best.
