I love an old Italian room with charm and good food...not found here. Service was terrible...I felt bad for our waitress,,,the food took so long to come out of the kitchen......portions were huge but average quality.....lots of great choices here,,,,,this isn't one.

This restaurant is downright depressing! It's a red sauce nightmare.......the chef owner walks around the restaurant while people are dining in very unappetizing clothing....food stained from cooking or whatever. The bathrooms are barely usable because they too reflect the lackadaisical attitude toward cleanliness. Once when we were there I saw the waitress flip a cotton tablecloth from one guest to... More

Excellent Italian food. Nothing is prepared until you order so always fresh. Good eggplant parmesan, fillet of fish, meat balls. Escargot is absolute best on East Coast!

My wife and I ate there last sunday and had the rack of lamb. No one in the entire area gives you three, three bone pieces like this, they were cooked to perfection. We started with escargo and Fried Zuchinni they were wonderful. They have a full bar with a very good wine list. The service was very attentative and... More

Excellant Italian food and great service. The live music was an added bonus. Within walking distance from Liberty Suites.

I dont know how anyone can say that this is good Italian food, Came here on a recommendation and was in shock on how bad it was. Besides the tacky decor and one man band, I ordered lasagna. It tasted like it came out of a box. The ricotta was pasty and packed together like play-doh. My daughter had baked... More

My daughter, friend, and I went this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant is neat in that it is a step back in time. The food was fabulous! We had all opted for seafood and the pasta that accompanied it was great. The sauces were tasty; the serving sizes ample. Only two mild disappointments....the only dessert on the... More

Walking into Lorenzo's is like going back in time to places that look like South Philadelphia Italian restaurants in the late fifty's & early sixty's. It reminds me of one of my favorites on Ninth Street, Ralph's. The ambiance is dated but in a good way. There's even a dance floor and, the two times we've been there, & a... More
