Good food, expensive

Food was excellent, quick and friendly service but expensive. No salad with the entree. Sketchy location.

There is a Vietnamese joint in its place. And it is not good at all. Save your time and money! The new place is the same on the inside but the menu obviously isn't. They weren't prepared for us when we got the at six pm. Slow and sketchy service. We paid and went for sushi. Disappointed.

This place has been here longer than the road it is on (almost). They haven't changed inside and don't really need to. I've been to parties and special occasions here and they always deliver. They did a really good job for my cousin's sweet 16 birthday party. If something isn't right, Michael the owner will make it right for you.... More

This place looks like a converted strip club. There is zero ambiance, no professional conduct and to top it off the food has no flavor. Avoid this and just eat at the airport-you'll have better ambiance and food. The owner-manager walks around in dirty sweatpants and a stained teeshirt. Yuck yuck yuck.

I have eaten at Lorenzo's twice with my Mom. The first time the food was delish. I am very picky with my Italian food. As eggplant parm is my favorite, I ordered it and it was very well made; lightly breaded and sauce fantastico! My Mom enjoyed the veal parm and was pleasantly surprised. We overlooked the crowd who looked... More

We walked in later in the evening, when the restaurant was less than half full. It took 8 minutes to receive a menu. We were looking for pizza and Lorenzo's fortunately does not serve any pizza. It gave us a good excuse to leave without ordering. The floor was dirty, as were the tables. A glimpse, through an open door,... More

Had a few hours before my flight out of FLL. Found this restaurant by accident. First impression almost frightening. Looked like a an old time Mafia restaurant scene from a movie. So glad I walked in to bar area. Women at bar said, "stay, eat, you won't be sorry". She was so right! Ordered one of the nightly specials, pork... More

Great authentic food, the atmosphere reminds me of the old italian mafia movies but, the food is outstanding. Always come here when we stay in Holllywood Beach. The Cook was also our Waiter one time when we visited.

A favorite for authentic Italian cuisine. Lorenzo's offers regular menu, but has daily special selections.......last night the Stuffed Artichoke was excellent & the special of Lobster Francese - lobster tail medallions in a Francese sauce - was amazing. Everything is cooked to order, so not a restaurant for a quick in and out, but if you want a nice leisurely... More
