You won't be reminded of your summer foodie visit to Tuscany here, but the food is piping hot and the space feels nice. The quality of ingredients just didn't cut it to the point where I can give a good review. It tasted like kid's food: boxed pasta, canned tomato sauce, dried spices with a bunch of homogenized cheese baked... More

I've been here several times. It's good bang for the buck. Seems like you either have very expensive higher end restaurants or very casual. This fits in between and great for families. Meanwhile food can be inconsistent, over cooked and under seasoned. I can say the service has been good always and friendly. It is surely very reasonable.

Suggested by my daughter-in-law and my granddaughters who live in Kings Beach Lanza's was well worth the visit. The place was crowed at the time but we were able to get a comfortable table and had good service. The food was very good and so much that we took some home to enjoy the next day.. The price was not... More

This place has solid family style Italian food at very reasonable prices. Portions are large enough to share at the table and the service is great. Perfect place to go early with kids while visiting north Lake Tahoe. The lasagna is amazing but very rich. Overall for us it's a staple in our Tahoe adventures.

We split the cheese shells with meat sauce and ordered 2 house salads. It was plenty of food and delicious. Our friends split the spaghetti and meatballs. We all enjoyed our dinner. The Italian bread was ordinary. I guess we should have ordered the garlic cheesy bread. The house red was okay. Most everyone in the restaurant walked out with... More

This was our second visit to Lanza's and both times the food was excellent. The service staff were attentive and food was delivered promptly. The first time we both had pasta dishes and this time we had the rib eye steak; all very delicious. The restaurant can get quite busy so best to make reservations during peak dinner hours. It's...

Lanza's is by far our favorite restaurant in Kings Beach. The portions are generous, and entrees come with a salad that is totally delicious. Favorites are chicken parm, calamari appetizer, and garlic chips. Take home a bottle of the signature salad dressing.

Lanza's was the best Italian I have ever tasted! I would recommend this Italian food to anybody going to Tahoe. Our family ordered the salad with a delicious salad dressing, the cheesy penne, creamy spaghetti, and eggplant lasagna. Our family devoured the Italian food in one meal and the left overs were loved. We were in a vacation home right... More

I really liked this place...not only because it was the only restaurant open near my hotel but I also loved the food. I ordered take out when I arrived and waited patient for my food in the bar. The food took a while but it was worth the wait. The bar was also well stocked and they serve pretty good... More
