Staying next door, we decided to give Lorenzo's a try. We ordered a 12" traditional cheese pizza and it was excellent. Just the right size for my wife and I and tasting like NJ pizza but with a thicker crust. Prices were a little high, but worth it.

We stayed at a hotel nearby, and this looked like a nice place for dinner. I had the green chile lasagne, which was wonderful! It melted in my mouth! My hubby had the sampler plate of raviolis, and thought it was very good too. The dishes seemed to be made by hand, not something they just heated up for you.... More

our server she was wonderful. the homemade bread is awesome and they made us a homemade garlic oil to spread on it. The green chile lasagna was delicious and the eggplant was the best I'very ever had.

Visited Lorenzo's twice in November while driving I-10. Menu's fine. Wine list is good. Food's good - shows some imagination for an Italian place. It's the nice staff that makes the place one to try to get to.

we decided to head to Lorenzo's for dinner, had the chicken parmigiana ( I always get this at Italian places ) my wife had the tour with 3 different pastas. Food was great.. Soup was great ( we had the creamy tomato ) and our waitress was very attentive. We always enjoy the restaurant!

Olive Garden, nasty as it is, serves better Italian food that this mess. The service is very slow, and quite uncaring. Prices are high. The food itself it very bland. As others have said, no slat in the pasta water. It looks and tastes like they put pasta on the plate, then ladle sauce over it rather than mixing the... More

We were traveling through and visited Lorenzo's based on a recommendation from the hotel. The experience started off poor and went downhill from there. We arrived for dinner to be told there would be a 10 minute wait. There were about 10 people waiting, one party of 8 and one party of two, all were seated within minutes. Then 2... More

I went here for the first time with a friend recently and discovered the delicious lunch meatball sub. The sauce is sweet with raisins in it. My friend and I ordered the lunch combo with a sandwich and pasta side. I ate all the pasta first and was very full from eating the dinner rolls they served and the pasta.... More

Between my friends and I, we have had pizza in 5 time zones (continental U.S. and Western Europe). We all agree that Lorenzo's is the best pizza we have ever had, period. The topping ingredients are all fresh, high quality, just like other good pizzarias. We think the secret is the crust. All of the pizza are outstanding. My favorite... More
