Pizza was good, and the pizza bread was big and fresh. It doesn't look like much in terms of ambience, but it was clean and no nonsense. An alternative to eating at the mall.

My son teenage Joey & I were looking for a cool (air conditioned) place for dinner to escape the humidity. Fat Lorenzo's handled that requirement and came thru big on the food size. The large pizza was stupid big for 2 people, so we had half a pizza for leftovers. They kill it with the crust, sauce was a the perfect blend of garlic & a hint of heat. Toppings were great. This is a great pizza place!

Fat Lorenzo's might not look like much on the outside but the food is worth a trip into the cities for some yummy pasta and pizza. The bread and butter is very filling and good- so watch out, save room for your meal because you are going to want to just keep eating and eating, everything tastes so great. Sitting outside is nice because you get a little more space but you do have to watch all the cedar ave traffic go by. The military base uses Fat Lorenzo's catering every year or so and even in bulk its amazing.

Fat Lorenzo's is a small Italian joint that offers big meals for a low price.Like other people have said in the past...it's doesnt look look like much from the outside, but Fat Lorenzos is a wonderful find for those looking for local eats. I had the spinach and feta stromboli as a app. It was huge and very tasty. As my meal, I had the Manacotti Lorenzo...all I have to say is outstanding. Please grab a table at Fat Lorenzos.
