Lorenzo - what a curious mass of contradictions! It´s a vast, multi-levelled pizzaria right at the end of one of Buzios´s main cobbled streets - one of this busy seaside town´s largest eateries, and most successful. Unless you arrive early, you´ll likely as not have to wait (either in the street or in the little seated area up the steps... More

We enjoyed a nice Italian lunch at he Lorenzo's. We ordered two different pizzas and a main chicken dish, all of which were good. Pizza was done very well with a nice thin crust. The restaurant was fairly empty when we ate , yet the food took a while to arrive. Good , not great, Italian in Buzios.

We came here for lunch to eat pizza. But unfortunatly the oven is not ready before 2 Pm. So we could only have pizza after 2.15 Pm. THE pizza was Just ok. THE good thing was they gave our kids dough so they were playing all THE time

The service was quite good. The food was excellent. The restaurant temperature was at the proper level. I consider this to be on of the better high scale restaurants in Buzios.

Well, we enjoyed our pizza until I discovered an insect shell stuck to the base! The waiter offered us a new pizza and took the insect inside, but did not apologise. I said that we weren't going to pay for the pizza and he asked us to follow him inside. He and the chef then explained that the insect had... More

On a weekday we dicided to go out for dinner. With 4 people we took a table outside on the terrace of Lorenzo. Service was a little chaotic in our opinion. Maybe 4 different waiters we had at our table during dinner. In short: + fresh tasty and enough food on the dishes. - took some time before drinks and... More

very pricy for a poor pizza, executed with salty mushroons (maybe they picked from the Jar and did not wash on fresh water). the Place looks good, but in buzios almost every restaurant does..

I had the whiting and found it to be rubbery. Vegetables were a touch undercooked. Atmosphere was very noisy, nothing to soften the din. The waiting staff were run off their feet, they have to work too hard to provide anything other than perfunctory service. Maybe the pasta and pizza could justify the other higher ratings, but for the same... More

We eat there on 30/jan/16. All 04 pasta dishes we order were excellent. I found it as good as some of great Italian Restaurants we have in Sao Paulo. Service was regular. Unfortunately the only issue was the hostess they have. When we arrive we enquired about eating on the second floor and she said it was not opened. I... More

My family and I have been to Lorenzo's many times, over the course of several years. The food and service are consistently excellent, and the slag out of the restaurant -- exposed brick and high ceilings -- is inviting. We have thoroughly enjoyed every pizza we have tried, and we have tried many. You can't go wrong. We have also... More
