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!

I fly in from TX to PA once or twice a year...first place I want to go is Lorenzo's...35 years in the same place, with the same people, same fabulous pizza. The crust is just exactly the right thickness and texture, toppings are plentiful, sauce primo. Love the atmosphere and the entire experience. I am hoping to get by there... More

Not Pat's, nor Geno's. Local spot for Philly cheese steak without frills or theatre. Had the standard recommended sandwich with onions and it tasted great

If your looking for fancy, skip this. If you want the best pizza in Philadelphia, do lot go anywhere else. It's a little corner spot in Philadelphia's Italian Market that doesn't look like much but is proof that looks aren't everything. You can go inside to one of a few tables and eat, of order at the window on the... More

This is the truth people and I wished... More

I have been visiting Lorenzo's since the mid-1990s, when I happen to be in Philadelphia. I love the Italian market area (which, sadly, seems to be gentrifying a bit) and I love this place. It always looked really scruffy, a plus from my point of view, until there was a fire there last July. Now is is restored and much... More
