Most of the reviews on Lorenzo's have been on their excellence for their menu, unfortunately, this review is based solely on the differential treatment we received because the person in charge of our party was African American.Yes, we did have reservations and yes, they did have several empty large tables prepared in the main dining area but we were seated in a room away from the main dining room. Our table didn't even have a cloth tablecloth and napkins or set up nicely as the it should have been with reservations. If it had been up to me, I would have left. My cousin was courteous and said there was nothing that she could have done to change things without making a scene. We did have two children in our party but there were several tables in the main dining room that had children, too. It was the hardest $160 bill to pay for a dinner that left us all with a bad taste in our mouth. If the proprietor knows this is how a select group of customers is being served, he should go back to Italy.
After being seated, my guests and I were never approached again. After more than ten minutes and employees walking around our table, we returned the menus to the front of the house and said we were leaving because they had just seated new customers AND proceeded to take their orders. No one seemed to know WHY we were never approached.
Wonderful food and service! Very consistent, have dined here many times and always enjoy!!Small space with a big atmosphere.
Excellent food, warm community atmosphere and great service. Best Italian in town! Head chef Rick is delightful and Michael the host will greet you with a smile. Give it a try!
I always seem to get the Pasta Tutimare (spelling) and that is because it's so darn good. Their salads are delicious.
Yum yum yum. We will definitely be back! Look no further for delicious authentic Italian yumminess.
You won't find a better place for the taste of Italy & a true brick oven pizza ! The service made us feel like we were family!
Bar food but on the skimpy side. The Onion rings were big but had 0 taste. A Ruben had less meat on it than an Arby's Ruben.Service was OK, but room is very loud. Good wine list, out of some beers and not worth any wait.
I was there last night...what fantastic food! I had the meat loaf and fresh green beans! Best meatloaf around. Not expensive either...for a huge piece of meatloaf that could have easily fed two people, a nice-sized helping of fresh green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, and a large salad, my meal was less than $11. Not expensive for all that food.
DO NOT go here for a banquet style event! I had my son's rehearsal dinner at this venue and I must say it was a bait and switch. We ate at the restaurant three times before the event and the food every was excellent each time. We decided on a very simple menu of toasted ravioli, salad, chicken marsala with "fresh/seasonal" squash and pasta con broccoli. The only part of the meal worth eating was the toasted ravs. The salad was never served. The chicken tasted as if it had been boiled or microwaved. The marsala sauce was lacking and thin. The squash was overcooked and mushy. Each plate of pasta con broccoli was swimming in a cheesy sauce with about six pieces of pasta. The food was comparable to institutional cafeteria fare. This was nothing like the food we had experienced on previous visits. When I complained to Andrea the following day (she wasn't there the night of the event) she basically told me I was wrong! And that the food was marvelous and properly prepared. She asked what she could do to "fix" the situation and I told her to send a gift certificate so my son could come back and (hopefully) enjoy the meal he expected on his special night.....I've never heard from her again. You can't get a do-over for a special occasion so avoid the place like the plague!
