I'm a pizza lover, and I have to say, Fat Lorenzo's is some of the best I've ever had! Great flavor! Great sauce, and interesting artwork on the walls! It's a great little place!

My wife and I took our friend to Fat Lorenzo's for dinner while he was on a 3 hour layover at the airport. We split a meat lovers pizza and had soft drinks. The service was great, the pizza was delicious, and we can't wait to head back as soon as we can. It was worth the 25 min. drive,... More

Having driven by this landmark restaurant near Lake Nokomis dozens of times, finally we found an opportunity to stop and satisfy our curiosity! The hand-painted Italian-themed murals in and out beckon, and the homey, informal decor inside is rustic, but cozy and quaint, if a bit crowded. But mama-mia, the food! And the prices! And the portion sizes! Wow! Two... More

We love ordering delivery of Lorenzo's pizza. It's a little pricey but worth it! They have a nice patio outside that is dog friendly and there are options for non pizza eaters. If you go expect a wait, but it's worth the wait. They have a great selection of gelato for dessert too. The perfect night would be a walk... More

The latest event we celebrated at Fat Lorenzo's with several of their fabulous salads, pizza and gelato was Father's Day. This is a popular stop in south Minneapolis for lots of people and it is always busy with people waiting for a booth or coming in for their take-out orders. A good place to treat out-of-town visitors!

We stopped here for lunch. Loved the waiter, he gave excellent service. Just the right amount of attention. The couple with us shared a salad and sandwich. They split the salad and sandwich on two separate plates. I had the steak and cheese hoagie. My hubby had chicken lasagna and both were delicious. The restaurant has outdoor seating and it... More
