Great late night or rough morning stomach buffer. Standing room and cash only. No toppings. Just plain cheese NY style slap it to a wall slice of pizza. Good crust, cheese, and sauce. Slice came out quick. Other than the new "artisan" pizzas in the city that will run you $14+ for the same size...this is one of the best... More

I had heard about Lorenzo's two-plate pizza, and experiencing this place did not disappoint. The giant slices only come in cheese (except on Tuesday, for some reason), but this was one of the best pieces of cheese pizza I've ever had. No topping necessary! And it was only $3.50! This may be the best pizza and the best bargain around.

OMG. The slices are super giant and are very good to say the least. No frills and no toppings. Good service and very clean restaurant. We highly recommend.

If you're looking for a quick slice, or pizza for a slumber party, look nowhere else! This is CLASSIC Philly pizza.

I'm from the south so getting a slice was a tourist event for me. We order whole pizzas at home, LOL. My slice was huge, two people could definitely snack on it. It was just cheese, I was okay with that. It was also a little greasy but hey it's pizza.

They only offer cheese, unless you go on certain days. Pizza was good, filling and quick. No frills here...just pizza.

Really good pizza and a good price. The place is cash only , there is a atm. The place is usually busy but the line usually goes fast. If you are near south street stop by for a slice well worth it. There is hot sauce, garlic salt and chess to put on yourself.

The slices were HUGE, the taste was AMAZING and the environment was clean. The line was out the door when I arrived and within 7min I had a slice of pizza in my hand. It was well worth the wait!

This restaurant was a great place to grab a huge slice of pizza. you had to have two plates to actually lay your slice on. The only thing that I did not like was there was not enough room to eat your food. But the pizza was very good,

Lorenzo & Sons Pizza is a small restaurant, where you can buy a huge slice of pizza for $3.50. It is delicious and authentic, it was the perfect lunch for our low-budget trip.
