The Italian place that got my husband to like Italian!

My husband and I, along with our kids visited Olive Garden a few years ago. My husband HATED it. It thought it was awful and refused to go to another Italian place. We found Lorenzo's and found we really loved their pizza and the prices are great. The one night we decided to dine in. I... read more

Liked the salads and especially the bread and dip. The fish was excellent. Their chicken and pizzas are always good too.

Great pasta with a sweet tomato sauce. We split an order of lasagna and a pasta sampler with both Alfredo and marinara sauces and were very happy. Good side salads with house dressing, fresh rolls with dipping oil, and fried cheese raviolis. Excellent, friendly service in a good atmosphere. A bit off the highway but well worth it.

I am going to start by saying YUM! This place was so good! The bread with oil (so good) they brought to the table to start us off was a great way to start our meal! Sooo good! The Alfredo sauce was out of this world! The shrimp was big, fresh, and cooked perfectly! The pizza was tasty, but the... More

Stopped here driving through on our way home to StL. Not much was open other than fast food so we took our chances and were pleasantly surprised. We typically avoid Italian food when we are traveling due to the vast Amount of authentic Italian we have at home but glad we took the chance. We will definitely be back on... More

Always good, good location, friendly service. They don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own wine, they have opener and glasses. They have some great Italian dishes and the pizza is very good.

We recently tried Lorenzos Pizza & Pasta in Vandalia, Illinois. They had apparently moved to a more central location in the downtown area. While they were not terribly busy when we visited, it seemed like the wait staff simply forgot about us. It took them quite some time to get to our table initially, we waited and waited with an...

Lorenzo's Pizza & Pasta has a new location at 116 Kennedy Blvd. right in the downtown area its so much easier to get to easy. I work in the area. Now I can get pizza at lunch or a sandwich. Great food and wonderful place to eat and relax
