I saw they were having an all you can eat special on lasagna and knew I had to go. We started off with a nice creamy asparagus mushroom soup which was great with the bread. The lasagna was excellent as I expected! I mean all...you can eat for 10 bucks is a steal if you ask me! Will definitely be coming back again 😋More

Went here a few months ago with my kid who really liked it so me and my family have been hyping it up for months and finally went there an hour away for Father's Day. I make better alfredo sauce myself can't tell if it...came from a can or was just gross or old or what but it had this sour taste that I couldn't identify. Was that gross sour taste supposed to be green chile? Because that's not the taste of Green Chile in New Mexico maybe that's what some New Yorker raised on spoiled milk thinks NM Green Chile taste like. Did I mention the tiny soup bowl had enough italian seasoning for an entire pot of soup? After them raving about their wings they had none and the only pizza you could get was a 10" personal pan if you wanted a real pizza you had to get it to go because New Yorkers just like to make stuff up like the soup yahzee from Seinfeld. Ordered water didn't even get any ice the woman brought a bottle of selzter water and a used whiskey bottle and never came back to find out if we wanted more water or you know maybe an ice cube. Lorenzo's has gone so far down hill in 20 years but at least it doesn't offend me to eat there.More

We were there fore lunch. We were the only people there at noon on Friday. OK, no problem. They had just opened at noon. Decor is nice, gangster theme. OK, food is average. I ordered cheese ravoli, my spouse spaghetti, my mother lasagna. For all...their advertising and hype, I expected more. No, just average to below average food, Bread cold, entrees luke warm. Tiramsu would have been great if they hadn't poured chocolate syrup over it. Not melted chocolate, chocolate syrup. Service was extremely poor--our server took off and we never saw her after the entrees came out. No refills, no questions. And we were the only table there--it's not like they were busy! For what they charge, it was sadly lacking. I really wish I hadn't tipped 20%, our server deserved maybe 10%. Save your money and go to Olive Garden or another Italian themed place.More

Every once in awhile the New Mexican wind blows a few curmudgeons in. I wont even try to defend this rant and will disqualify it as fodder. Mainly because anyone who was this unsatisfied would have spoken up and said something. How could anyone actually...More

We were greated by the owner and were seated on their small patio, which was sheltered from the wind. The owner/chef came over and took about 5 mins to explain the specials and some of the ingredients in the dishes. My friend asked about gluten...free options and he immediately offered to make her a special dish! I had the shrimp alfredo, which was suggested by the chef. It was very good, but was overloaded with a thick cheesey sauce. Too much for my lactace intollerance. My wife enjoyed the veal parm, which is a rare commodity in these parts. This was very good, but also overloaded with sauce. We enjoyed the nice side salads and were pleasantly surprised by a gift of a nice cannoli to help celebrate our Anniversary! A nice ending to an enjoyable evening enhanced by the gracious hosts.More

Absolutely love this place! Food is always amazing and the owners Bob and Kim are some of the nicest people you will ever meet! We’ve been coming here for years(started out in Deming and now drive to Las Cruces) This visit was my choice for...my Mother’s Day meal and we drive 3 hours from Morenci, Az every time! Totally worth it!More

Wow! The atmosphere is amazing, but what is even more amazing than the atmosphere is the food.I wish I could give more than five stars. Best Italian food in this town by far! What’s even better than the food are the owners. They are friendly...and welcoming and they make me feel as though we have been life long friends. Seriously, everything about this restaurant deserves well over 5 stars!More
