“Neighborhood Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Small Italian joint offers big flavors in a funky setting. It may not look like much from the outside, but Fat Lorenzos is a wonderful find for those looking for local eats. I had the meatball sub. It was huge, messy, and glorious. But meatball sub I have ever had. My wife was very pleased with her meal as well. Ditch the chains and grab a table at Fat Lorenzos.

“Great food, small place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We had to wait a little while for our table, but it was a Saturday night. The waiting area has a great view of the pizza making process so there is something to watch. You can also spend some of your wait time picking what flavor of gelato you want for dessert (if you have room). This was our first time at Fat Lorenzo's and the waitress was very helpful in telling us her favorites. The pasta dishes and pizza we ordered were full of flavor and enough to take home for another meal. We will definately be back.

“Great place to enjoy a pizza.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Love the wall murals, dancing cherubs holding cans of tomatoes and other ingredients. Terrific fun place - loads of food on the plate.

We go back whenever we have the opportunity.

“Great pizza and pasta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Best place to grab some homestyle Italian take-out on the weekdays. Weekends however are packed! I suggest deep dish or a meatball calzone.
