We went here based on a friend's recommendation and weren't disappointed. We chose the "poor man's fish" tasting menu and delighted in dishes we would never have ordered, such as crudo of amberjack, scaboardfish carpaccio and carpaccio of anchovies burrato. Anchovies were nothing like what you get on pizza and were delicious. Place is very elegant and for special occasions. Clientele was upscale and well dressed.

My wife and I ate there last night. Food is good but not exceptional at least not at these ridiculous prices. If you're looking for a refined dining experience, not the place to go.

Thanks to Hotel Lunetta we found Il San Lorenzo by three mins walk from the hotel.Apart from the menu beautiful atmosphere and very professional attentive staff deserves also a praise.
They had two kind of degustation menu and we selected extensive one( 8 course) instead of spending time with Ala Carte Menu. We liked all the courses but calamari tagliatelle(tagliatelle form cut calamari!) and pan seared tuna fish deserves special praise. They both were superb!
I suggest to spend more time on their wine list, it is simply mind blowing. They should get a Wine Spectator award! They have very nice selection of Proseccos and i suggest to consider a dry processo with seafood.
They are not inexpensive but at the end you will get more than what you pay for!

We are extremely grateful to the taxi driver that took us to this restaurant. We took the taxi to go somewhere else that evening but he convinced us to go Il Sanlorenzo instead, after hearing from us some other places that we have been to such as Don Alfonso, Pergola etc....he was right!!
Il Sanlorenzo is at couple of Michelin Star level without the stars. The raw fish appetizers were delicate, delicious extremely well presented . The fresh pasta with the baby octopus was one of the best pasta dishes we have ever had. We have shared the second oven baked fish cooked to the perfection. Impeccable service, great crowd ,mostly locals. Worth the price. We will definitely be back whenever we are in Rome.

We went to this restaurant recommended by friends but unfortunately we were very disappointed. Even though we arrived early with a reservation and had asked for a corner table we were received by a very stern and unfriendly manageress that insisted to seat us on a passageway with constant traffic on our back. While the waiter himself was friendly and tried to be helpful it was clear that there are two level of customers- those that are "friends" and receive full service ,- and others that are treated with indifference. While the food was good, the very high prices should have involved a better all round experience. We left disappointed and would not recommend it unless you are in their circle of friends.
