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
My husband and I have a wonderful time every time we dine at Paesanos on the riverwalk in downtown San Antonio. The atmosphere is cool and ecclectic, warm and inviting all in the same, and the servers obviously take pride in working for a San Antonio landmark! …

I love Paesanos, all of them. However, this is my favorite just beacause of the atmosphere of the Riverwalk. The Shrimp Paesano is wonderful at all the locations, but to eat it here right on the river where you have great people watching opportunities is the best. It does get super crowded at…

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!
