When visiting Ottawa, at some point we usually order a take-out pizza from Lorenzo's. If you pick it up yourself, your bill is reduced by 10%, too. The "Canadian" with Pepperoni, Mushrooms, and Bacon is our favourite, and the flavours are really yummmm!! Lorenzo's is set up to deliver or to pick-up.... it's not for dining in. If you're looking... More

A word of warning. Should you like mayo on the side, they charge you an extra $1.75. I have tried to give this restaurant a chance since Sam left but today was the deciding factor that I will never step foot there ever again. The waitress tried 5 or 6 times to get the bill right. They charge for a... More

We ate here last week and found the food quality not as good as with the previous owners. One meal was the steak sandwich ordered rare and it came to the table well done. This person upgaded and paid extra for a ceasar salad, however the croutons tasted of rancid oil. As we had shared the salad we both knew... More

Lorenzo's has long been a family favorite. I dare any one to find a more reasonable roast beef buffet on a Saturday night. And don't forget the chicken wings!

The original owner Sam had a great pizza but the quality started to decline very rapidly towards the end of his ownership at the restaurant. The new owners have brought the quality and taste back up. The pizza is great, a bit pricey but the sauce is very unique and worth it.

I'm a regular customer there for about 7 years now. I don't know the previous owner well,but I didn't see much of a change in the pizza except... More

March 2 2013, after eating at Lorenzo's for nearly 15 years, I was so disappointed tonight after waiting nearly 150 minutes (2.5 hours) for our take out pizza order in the waiting area. Apparently new ownership is to blame, however, the kitchen staff and the wait staff did nothing to advise patrons that their 20minute waits would turn into 2+... More

I think this is the original location (there are other places by the same name in the city), and it's a neighbourhood gem. It doesn't look like all that much from the outside, but step inside and you'll find a cozy and friendly atmosphere where it's often quite busy but you'll never feel ignored. The menu is quite varied, but... More
