Went for the first time to a graduation 🎓 dinner. Food was really good. Good drinks and desserts were amazing, good experience for the first time visiting. Parking can be a lil overwhelming, there's a supermarket, barbershop and other stores around, but once u find a spot you are all set.

My husband and I dropped into Lorenzo's tonight for a meal as we were staying around the corner and mainly because it was in walking distance. And after reading reviews on here it seemed the obvious choice. It was as described by others as a friendly warm place to eat. The two waitresses were friendly and advised us on a... More

The atmosphere is stunning. There is a fireplace in the restaurant area; an out door patio with a pizza stove. Yes they make the pizzas out doors as well as inside. A very delicious Italian menu with home made desserts. They have full bar with tables and private rooms that lead to the outdoor patio for parties, conferences and more.... More

I've eaten here many times: for birthday parties, family gatherings, and with a few friends. Food has always been a cut above the rest. Service is good, nicely decorated in an Italian theme. Best of all is the exceptional Italian food.

As soon as you enter the door you are serviced immediately with excellent waiters. The salads were fresh and tasty, and the bread and butter is of high quality. We chose veal marsala and lasagna and were amazed that we never tasted any better. Five stars for Lorenzo's Ristorante Italiano.

My husband, Pete and I frequent Lorenzo's take out, mainly for the pizza. We absolutely LOVE it! We've tried pizza from other places around West Haven, but are stuck on Lorenzo's. I have never dined in, but will do so soon.

I have been here many times for dinner with friends and large parties and everything has always been wonderful. They happily accommodate special dietary needs. No matter what anyone orders they are always very pleased with the food. I had a luncheon there today and everyone was absolutely raving about the meal and the attentiveness of the servers.

I went to Long Wharf Theater with a group of family and friends and we decided to try Lorenzo's for dinner afterward. Super close if you are at the new Jordans Furniture, Ikea, Long Wharf Theater or in the Yale vicinity. You can take back roads or hop on the highway and its only 5-8 minutes away. The menu is...

We have never had a bad meal at Lorenzo's. We dine here quite a bit and we always enjoy our meals whether it is just my husband and I, our family or friends everyone comes out feeling full and happy. I always request Ann for our server. She has been waiting on us for over 20 years. We don't even... More
