Lorenzo pizza

Best pizza and steaks in the city. Mushroom pizza was the best I've had and the slices are huge. Parking is rough being this is a huge hangout section in the city for us residents and also tourists. Long lines move pretty fast and so worth the wait

We weren't expecting much, was more of a greasy spoon. The pizza was excellent! We sat outside and had our pizza. Inside the restaurant was very hot. This place is more take out then eat in. Thin crust with a nice tomato sauce. We had the Margarita pizza. Was an unexpected surprise...do recommend it.

If you want a good cheese steak and pizza, Lorenzo's is the place! Forget all of the tourist spots and stop there. Great food at a great price. You can even sit outside and people watch at the end of the Italian Market. This is a real local pizza shop with friendly Philadelphia service!

Great pizza, but huge slices so order accordingly! Best slice in town especially the cheese and sausage. Don't leave Philly without some!

There were 6 of us - we ordered 6 cheese steaks. Nobody was disappointed for sure! Absolutely delicious! Nice friendly guys, great food. A relaxing place to chill and hang for lunch. 9th street a great place to visit in Philly!

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...

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

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
