“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

This was on of the best places we have ate in Indy. The food was great and the service was as well. We were not rushed to order and could have time to talk and review the menu. There was a large party going on in the back dining area, but this did not slow the service. Was very pleased and will probably return on our next trip!!

“Good Non-chain Italian Place in Downtown Indy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

I enjoyed myself the first night, so much so that I went back to Lorenzo's the next night also. I was traveling on business and was looking for a non-chain Italian restaurant, within walking distance from my downtown hotel that had a bar a single could eat at. I walked down Maryland to this well located restaurant, was happy with the clean, contemporary interior, and found a full bar. I had a couple Michigan micro-brews and ordered the enough for 4 charcuterie plate (Antipasto Misto)...good meats, average cheese and average olives. Then I tried the Red Pepper Pappardella Bolognese, assuming any self respecting Italian place would nail this one...it didn't hurt that the loquacious and friendly owner, who was sitting next to me, was having the same thing. The pasta was good and passed the test. The bartender was very personable, and very attentive to all my needs.
The next night I had the Calamari appetizer, which was tender and absolutely delicious, followed by the Chicken Chiantigiana. I was very hungry and made this tender, sauce laden piece of chicken disappear in a few minutes. Still hungry I treated myself to a tasty piece of moist cheesecake and an after dinner drink.
All in all, the food and service were very good, and I'd recommend this place if you're looking for something nice in downtown Indy that doesn't have the chain restaurant, overly salty, everything a la' carte, massive portion thing going on.

“Super service and very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Although it has been open for about a year, I had not heard of Lorenzo's yet. I went with some business collagues. The server couldn't have been more helpful. He made great suggestions when asked and was very knowledgable. He passed are dinner perfectly (we were talking a lot). We had the mussels as an appetizer (great garlic broth); wonderful pear salad and fresh baked bread. The table had the meatballs and pasta and the raviolo. Everyone liked their choices. The wine was very good too. It was pretty quite - although it was a week night. I hope it gets better known.

“a little taste of italy in indy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

had a delicious true italian dinner of angel hair and meatballs (some of the best meatballs since my italian mother in law made for me) and a quiet little place called Lorenzo's. I also enjoyed the Moscato St. James wine, and the bread.

I highly recommend this as the finest italian food I have found in the capital city. I sat at the bar as I was alone and received great service and a beautiful smile.
