From the moment we walked in the door of Lorenzo’s the atmosphere, friendliness and outstanding service was beyond our expectations. As a member of the Shania Twain Band I have had the great opportunity to enjoy Italian cuisine all over the world. As well, having been raised in New York in the “old Italian neighborhood” my expectations for Italian restaurant food is significantly higher than most people. I particularly enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the quiet and classic old time style of Lorenzo’s reminded me of many of my childhood meals in New York’s “Little Italy” neighborhood. I myself had Lasagna that was authentic and very tasty (I especially enjoyed the extra sauce they provided on the side). The serving size was remarkable, the garlic bread was abundant and served piping hot. I highly recommend the house Italian salad dressing--it was nearly as good as good as I remember my grandmother’s being--just the right touch of olive oil and spices to enhance the salad that contained not only tomatoes, but also olives, green peppers and other veggies. My dinner guest found the Manicotti equally as delicious as I found my Lasagna. There was no wait time, service was five-star and the selections and/or choices the menu provided were the best I’ve seen in any Italian restaurant in Texas. If you are looking for excellent food, great service, and very reasonable prices Lorenzo’s is your best bet. Giovanni G. Bonanno Malibu Beach, California
I have been to Lorenzo's a few times, and every time i go - i leave there delightfully full and IMPRESSED. This last time we went on Friday, and were treated exceptionally well by our waiter for the evening, Rudy, whose recommendation of not bothering to open my menu, was odd at first but tu…
My Wife and I were in San Antonio recently and we were having trouble finding a good Italian restaurant. We looked online and found a website called www.sanantoniobestrestaurant,com we found Aldo's Restaurante Italiano. I would never have known about this place otherwise. The atmosphere in their…

We're having dinner at Little Rhine steak house downtown and im still thinking of my red lobster on 410 and callaghan. Great food and great service, hope to be there soon. Rhine steak house is great too..Javier
I am new to San Antonio, and I was thrilled to be introduced to Little Italy. The restaurant's interior reminds me of a cute little Italian restaurant I used to go to when I was growing up in Chicago. We were warmly greeted at the door, and led to a cozy booth for two. The service was excel…
I ordered off of grubhub, and the guy knocked on my door, gave me my food, and then literally ran away before I had a chance to even say thank you. I checked the order and they had the wrong dessert and forgot my pizza. I called the restaurant and told the lady about that, and she said, "let me …

I love this place!! we go there even if were not at the mall!!! It doesnt take long to get a table, basically walk in and get seated. The food is great, good service... and it doesnt take an hour to eat like most restaurants. Its not the ideal place for kids but its not completely terrible. I w…
The atmosphere was really cozy and warm. The shrimp fettuccine was excellent. The shrimp was fresh and the home made sauce was succulent. The bread was fresh and tasty. The service was nice, no complaints. I will definitely return. Satisfied on a Friday evening.
Me and my friends went there one night not knowing what to expect. What we got was great food, a competent and personable server and an owner who took the time to come and talk to us. These people are not corporate, just folks like us who are trying very hard to become established in our communi…
I just love this restaurant. The food is great, service is superb and the atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Italy They also have a great happy hour crowd and a beautiful bar area.
I really liked what I ordered there. It was a crape with chicken and a creamy orangy sauce(which was tamato mixed with alfredo) and I believe there was spinach in the crape as well. Of course I have eaten enough Italian to know that I like that particular kind of dish. If you don't eat a lot of pastas and sauces I would suggest asking the waiter/waitress what they recommend from what you usually like/dislike. My husband on the other hand didnt know what he was getting and ended up getting something without a whole lot of flavor. I believe it was chicken and artichoke hearts in linguine, with olive oil as the sauce (I imagine with other herbs as well) but it was too bland for him and I had to give him some of my sauce. Definately a nice, and relatively in-exspensive place to eat. Its prices compete well with other finer places around. maybe 10-15$ a plate. I give it a big thumbs up!
I have consistently found that the best restaurants are those that are small and owned and managed by families. Piccolo's is just such a place. The atmosphere is like those places in New Orleans, New York, or San Francisco, where the whole thing is the food - making sure it is well-prepared, fresh, served quickly, and at a reasonable price. The sauces are always freshly prepared, and the fish is not "fishy." The wait staff is efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The decor is what you'd expect in a family-owned restaurant - thematic, not fancy, but with a pleasing personality. About the food. Every dish I've had there is delightful in its blend and balance of sauces, cheeses, and spices. I'm planning on having everything in the menu eventually. I would like to have a bigger choice of desserts, but that's a minor issue.
Everything was great food and service but the only thing that bothered us was that the employees that had finished their shifts sat down in the booth in front of us and ordered food and bottles of wine and they were being very loud and talking in such vulger language I was trying to have a respectable evening and romantic dinner with my husband but it was ruined. The employees had states to their friends that later joined them that they're not suppose to be drinking after work but that sometimes they get away with it.. Their should be a break room for them to go in our at least i'm an empty section poof the restaurant not bothering the paying customers
Pleasantly impressed! I went to lunch here today with a group of coworkers. We had a great time. The food was good, I didn't hear one complaint. The focaccia bread served with the meal was excellent. I had the special today which was Chicken & Eggplant Parmigiana. It was very good. The pasta was cooked perfectly aldente. The chicken was not particularly juicy alone, but any dryness was not noticeable when eaten along with the slice of eggplant served on top of the chicken cutlet. The red sauce was also good. I tasted a coworkers dish of tortellini pesto (also on special), it was good too. I will likely return to this establishment.
they seat you as quickly as they can and are honestly up front about how long the wait is. the food is incredible and i have tried everything. If you are not sure about a dish just ask and if you are not sure but have an idea of what you want they will point you in the right direction. I have even had a few thind off the menu. salad are always fresh, calamari fritti with it's sauce is wonderfull. whether it's seafood for chicken, beef you can not go wrong in the rafaello sauce. dessert you need the capaccino pie!
I went for lunch. I had the Chicken Parmesan and spaghetti. The Chicken Parmesan was just ok. I could probably buy a frozen one from HEB and be just as good. The sauce on the spaghetti was not good at all. It was like warm ketchup with a little bit of spices added to it. The server was excellent. She was polite and very attentive to us. The service is the only reason why I gave 3 stars instead of 2. The price paid does not equal the quality of the food received. I probably will not go back.
This has to be one of the BEST Italian restaurants in San Antonio. They have a wide range of menu items from shrimp, seafood, lasagana, spagetti, etc. The service and food is superb! You MUST try this place. It is one of my favorites!!! AND on Friday and Saturday nights they have live music from Jorge who sings in English, Spanish and Italian. What more can you ask for??? This is one of my favorite restaurants!!! A++++++
Whenever I have friends or family come in from out of town, I take them to eat at my favorite Italian Ristorante, Paesanos. The food is authentic, almost as if my Nana was in the cucina cooking. If I close my eyes I actually can remember what our house smelled like, fresh garlic, homemade spaghetti and meatballs, Parmesan, Provolone and Mozzerella cheeses blended to perfection. It's all there at Paesanos. Benvenuto!
MY SON AND I LOVE OLIVE GARDEN!!! GREAT FOOD, SERVICE, AND STAFF! WE ATE THERE TODAY AND MY SON LEFT HIS NINTENDO DS AND HE WAS VERY UPSET, IT WAS A VERY BUSY DAY FOR THEM AND SOMEONE HONSETLY TURNED IT IN. I WAS SHOCKED BECAUSE THERE ISNT MANY HONEST PEOPLE OUT THERE. THANK YOU TO WHO EVER DID, MY SON AND I APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH. I EVEN OFFERED A REWARD AND THEY WOULDN'T EVEN EXCEPT IT, WOW, RIGHT?
