“Horrible, Horrible, Horrible”
Reviewed June 20, 2009

Do yourself a favor, don't go to Lorenzo's. My husband and I went there for dinner on a Saturday night at 7:30 PM and the place was empty, now I know why. The steak was tough and over cooked, not medium rare like I ordered. The seafood was not fresh. The waitress was unpleasant and the salt and pepper shakers were greasy. There was no one at the front of the house to great us as we walked in and when they did arrive, they seemed very bothered that we were there rather than gratefull that there were customers. This place is awful. Save your money and don't ever go to Lorenzo's.

“My once a week favorite”
Reviewed February 19, 2008

If you want the best, quality wise Italian food in the entire area, you have to go to Lorenzos. They are the only people who really know how to prepare seafood. Their steaks are incredible and there Italian dishes are what they should be. The service is attentative and their portions are great. My wife and I are local and we never miss a week EdV Hollywood

Reviewed March 11, 2007

Family owned and operated for 42 years. All of your favorite Italian Speciality dishes cooked like mama used to make. The meatballs are about the size of a baseball, and are they delish. Every Sunday is buffet night, 22.95, includes a seafood bar as well as all your favorite Italian foods, including a carving station. The food is wonderful and the portions are hugh.

“Excellent Italian Food!”
Reviewed March 2, 2007

Lorenzo's Restaurant is by far the best Italian food in the area. The food is cooked to order and if you like home-style Italian cooking - it will prove to be a favorite. The seafood is fresh and cooked anyway you like and when we go and don't feel like having Italian - the steaks are amazing, prepared any way you like. The pork chops pizziola are another specialty.
It's a good value....moderate prices.......they have a twin lobster special usually for 29.95 broiled or steamed with soup or salad and a side of pasta. On Sunday night there is a Dinner Buffet for 23.95 which a fabulous price - it has a raw bar, soups, salad, a variety of different entrees every week and a carving station, not to mention the desserts and "bananas Foster" delight prepared at your table.
Lorenzo's is right on US1 just a few blocks north of Sheridan Street and well worth the trip!
