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...

I always request Ann for our server. She has been waiting on us for over 20 years. We don't even... More

Best fresh tomato & garlic pie in West Haven (and they do pile on the garlic, with just the right amount of fresh basil!), with their sausage, peppers, and onion earning a close 2nd!

We were part of a large group, which may have accounted for the spotty service (at times attentive and at other times poor). The basic dishes were fine (hard to mess up veal or chicken parm). But several people in our group had bad experiences. The worst was a pasta selection described as " linguini with shrimp and crab sauce"... More

Everything here is the freshest home made italian foods. Like Momma amde---and some of it is made by Momma too! Vel parm melts in your mouth. Well cooked and blessed with home made sauce and melted mozz. /The Eggplant rolitini is divine. Thin sleces of eggplant, breaded and fried then rolled around the heavenly ricotta.
