“Good food, great bread, wonderful service, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This has become a standard in our repetoire of restaurants in Las Cruces. Soups are very good, some mild; some very spicy so ask before ordering. I love the ravioli (all of them), lasagna excellent as well. Really good service and great location when attending events at NMSU Pan Am or Football - just walk across the street. We'll be back and often

“Good value, Service, & Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

1st time at Lorenzo's, which was recommended by several locals and the hotel. I called and the hostess was very friendly and we were able to get a table on Friday evening. The restaurant was full, but not completely sold out. Met the owner at the entrance, who showed us to our table. Waitress was also very attentive and we got our food in the right amount of time. I noticed that the entire staff was very attentive and constantly checking directly or indirectly (Without bothering the customers) the tables and removing dirty dishes, re-filling waters, etc. Overall very professional and courteous team. The portion are big and we ended up taking some back to the hotel. The pasta was very good. That evening/weekend they had a promotion going on, which gave us a 15% discount because our hotel recommended them. We did appreciate the discount. It is conveniently located just west of I-25 on University Ave. If you are in Las Cruces, I would recommend to visit Lorenzo's.

“Ordered takeout”

Check your order before you leave. Ordered Alfredo and got lasagne. However the lasagne was good and servers were nice.

“Excellent Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Lorenzo's has been in Las Cruces longer than I have lived here, and is a reliable Italian restaurant, the only non-chain genuine Italian cuisine I have found. Their food is excellent, pleasant servers, and very large glasses of wine! The Eggplant Parmigiana is especially tasty, as it is baked, not fried, and so it's never heavy.

“I was craving spagetthi and meatballs and found this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Right next to the hotel I was staying in. Very good food! I didn't think to ask for regular spagetthi noodles, I was served a flat type noodle with the spagetthi and meatballs. Quite good in fact and would visit again
