There was a BIG party with loud music going on in their banquet room in the back. Of course no one told us there was going to be a DJ during our dinner. It was terrible it was so loud you couldn't have a conversation during dinner. The food was not up to what its been in the past. ALL... More

My family walked in last week, it was late, and we didn't realize that we only had about 30 minutes until closing, however, no one ever walked up to us. We received shifty eyes from the bar and the dining room, even filled with patrons, had not a single worker. We stood there for a good 10 minutes and left... More

Lorenzos has excellent food and makes great a pizza as well. It is a warm and homey spot run by family. The service is always great and they have a back room for special dvdnts

We have only ever had pizza and cannolis here...not because we think everything else is bad but because they are so good we just can't stop wanting to eat them! The clam and shrimp pizza here is out of this world!! Lots of seafood and the pizza taste fresh from the ocean. The interior is one of the most romantic... More

I found the food to be very tasty and authentic. The prices were very reasonable and the portions just right. My only complaint was the service was a little slow. However, it definitely deserves going back again.

So...I decided last night to give Lorenzo's another try. And again, I wasn't impressed. It seems to me when he was at the old location...the food, portions and service were much better. The bartender was arrogant and I don't think he knew how to smile. Our waitress was just as bad...didn't seem like she cared about the quality of her... More

I've been to the old location up the street which was so-so. Not the greatest but not the worst either. More recently and at the recommendation of a friend, I took a client there to supper. With the exception of a couple of other patrons, the dining room was deserted. I've often heard it said that if a restaurant's bar... More
