This place is one of our favorites for local Italian food. The food is consistently good and we like the fact that they have daily specials as well. The wait staff is knowledgeable and helpful in decision making. Sometimes we just go for Happy Hour with reduced drink and appetizer prices though the bar area can be noisy.

Lorenzo's is a local restaurant that has a loyal following. It's nicely decorated with muted tones and indirect lighting. The dining room is great for quiet dinners and conversation. The bar can be noisy, especially during happy hour. We stopped in for drinks and apps. It was very busy on a Friday evening. There was an eclectic mix of 20... More

I've heard so many people brag about how good Lorenzo's food is, so my wife and I decided to order take out seeing as though we live so close and we're ready to be home. I still can't believe how horrible and bland the meatballs were, I've had better salad from McDonald's and I can assure you that I would... More

Italian specialties served by family run business. Friendly attentive service. Stuffed shrimp, chicken parmesan and pasta fagioli are my favorite. Pizzas are great to take home with great choice of tasty toppings. Subs are such a treat for lunch. Ladies night on Thursdays give ladies the opportunity to go socialize and eat incredible dishes.

I was shocked to find out my family was having a surprise birthday party for me. There were 20 people present. We all ordered off the menu some had chicken Parm some had eggplant others had macaroni and sausage or meatball and some had the chicken and broccoli rabe, all were delicious, I recommend this place to everyone. !!

Overall: There are better choices nearby. Feels like a place for regulars who probably come more for the comraderie than for the food. Won't be back. Food: We were surprisingly disappointed. After reading reviews here, we were eager to give this place a shot. We ordered the Crab Cake Special appetizer, NY style Calamari, Chicken Scarpariello with a side of... More

I was there on 18 October with a group of clergy. The service was friendly and the food as good as anything I ever had in Italy. The portions are huge. I would go back in a minute.

Went for the first time to a graduation 🎓 dinner. Food was really good. Good drinks and desserts were amazing, good experience for the first time visiting. Parking can be a lil overwhelming, there's a supermarket, barbershop and other stores around, but once u find a spot you are all set.

My husband and I dropped into Lorenzo's tonight for a meal as we were staying around the corner and mainly because it was in walking distance. And after reading reviews on here it seemed the obvious choice. It was as described by others as a friendly warm place to eat. The two waitresses were friendly and advised us on a... More
