“Hearty and delicious Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

This very popular Kings Beach restaurant serves wonderful pizza, pastas, stuffed shells, calamari with artichokes, chicken dishes, etc. Portions are large and are accompanied with salad (gorgonzola cheese is optional charge) ,side order of pasta and mixed veggies (usually carrots, zucchini and broccoli mix) .Bread loaves are crusty and yummy. Children love this place. Waitstaff is friendly and efficient. Prices are very reasonable. We love dining here.

“Great Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We have been eating at Lanza's for over two decades. This is one restaurant where children are truly welcome. The food has retained is excellent quality over the years and portions are still large. Once very reasonable, prices are starting to get up there. The restaurant does not take reservations and waits can be long during the winter and summer seasons. Nonetheless, Lanza's remains one of our favorite restaurants in north Tahoe.

“Comfort Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Big portions, old school vibe, perfect family place if you are visiting Tahoe. i like the bar too. It is usually not too loud. The place as a whole is unassuming and inviting.
