Wonderful Pasta and Incredible Bread with Very Good, Friendly Service

As a first-time visitor to Las Cruces on a short business trip, I had a hankering for Italian. I had seen Lorenzo's as I drove by on a previous day so I decided to stop in on a Tuesday evening. The place was fairly busy considering the day of the week, which is usually a good sign to me something... read more

We were told to eat here by locals. We arrived to find a lack luster exterior but full parking lot. The interior was clean and homey. The employees were happy and attentive. Our dinner s came with soup or salad. Both were very good. We had penni with meat sauce Thad was hardly edible. The other dish was chicken with... More

I must give 5 stars to this family-owned Italian Restaurant on many levels- We were warmly greeted by two very attentive hosts. Our waitress, Nicole, was extremely professional, and polite. She not only made my dining experience delightful, she laughed with my children and made them feel welcomed as well. The bread was fresh, warm and so tasty as is... More

I like to dine at Lorenzo's when I want to have a nice meeting away from the office. I always order the pick two and I really like the salad with a sandwich option. I enjoy the Ensalata de Luso and the prosciutto with mozzarrella sandwich. Vince, the owner is always out in the dining area greeting customers., He really... More

We had the grilled chicken Alfredo and the food was very tasty. The atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing. The staff is friendly and owner is a very nice guy both on and off the clock.

This was close to the hotel and had some good reviews so gave it a try. It was very good and the service was excellent. Portions were large! I had grilled chicken over fettuccine with the pesto crème sauce which was awesome and my husband had the crab ravioli and he said it was great. The bread and wine just... More

Excellent service, good price, great setting. My only complaint was the Alfredo Sauce was too thin. Good food. I'd go back.
