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

while in Philly yesterday we stopped in their Little Italy to look around. we found ourselves on the corner of 9th and Christian and my son said "let's get a slice" so as we walked away sharing a slice we both said " this is the best pizza I have ever had". 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

Was on the way to the popular joints to show a friend, and after seeing what they served, decided to go to Lorenzo's. The cheesesteak was fantastic. Service was awesome. Next time I'll add extra cheese. Got it with provolone, fried onions, and mushrooms. Huge, and only $7.00. Remarkable. After hit Anthony's coffee across the street for cap and connoli.

We stopped by Lorenzo’s for a slice of their famous pizza while visiting the Italian Market. You can either go inside, or order from a window on the sidewalk. The pizza dough was freshly made and the pepperoni had just the right spice. It was a very good slice. Lorenzo’s was recognized by Philadelphia Magazine with the "Best of Philly"... More

We hit 3 highly ranked pizza joints and this was our 2nd favorite. It's good stuff, but it didn't measure up to Soho's in Old City (was really shocked us) which was great, gotta fold it, must try stuff. If you're in The Italian Market and want good pizza, go here. If you have the idea to try the famous... More
