Pizzas 28 inches, so a slice is huge and delicious, great location on South St, perfect lunch or afternoon snack.

We spend the day walking and it was time to eat. My kids said they had to have a cheese steak...so we were directed to Lorenzos. Underwhelming was my son's description and I have to agree the meat was tender and tasty but they seemed to forget the onions...maybe 3 small pieces and there was hardly any cheese. My husband...

Forget about Pats/Genos, Lorenzos is by far the BEST cheesesteaks. Don't let the atmosphere fool you, these guys make great cheesesteaks, the service is quick and the cheesesteaks are made fresh. Inexpensive, , not greasy at all, didn't leave me feeling sick with a stomach ache after I ate it. The sauce is also delicious, it has a slight sweetness... More

Rumor has it that the location on South St offers a bigger portion of a better product. I think I made the mistake choosing Sicilian over Neopolitan pizza. Great yeasty bread but almost no sauce or cheese. There must be thousands of pizza choices in Philly but this style at this shop can be skipped.

I lived in Philly for three years, ate at many restaurants, there were a few that had better cheesesteak, but for food AND atmosphere, this place was the best. The first two times I was there they played nothing but Sinatra on the radio, combined with the food, and the awesome people made for a true food experience. They make... More

I lived in Philly for 3 years, every time I am back I have to make a trip to Lorenzo's. By far my favorite cheesesteak in town and the best atmosphere. By that I mean, nothing nice, but great Philly people. The same 3 guys are working every time I go and they are great. Definitely a family business! Skip... More

My dad recommended Lorenzo's to us, so my husband and I enjoyed a pizza here. We both said it was absolutely the most wonderful pizza we've ever had! We didn't get to try their Philly cheesesteaks, but those looked phenomenal as well.

If you are looking for great pizza, cheese steaks, hoagies, chicken parm sandwich, this is where you want to go. John makes some of the best sandwiches in town. It's very Philly. Reasonably priced with all the ambiance of the Italian Market. You will leave here full.

This is the thin and greasy and oily pizza of your childhood! Delicious pizza with the best kind of cheese!
