Lorenzo of Crystal Palace situated near the Crystal Palace Park on SE19’S trendy Westow Hill, Lorenzo has stood its ground since 1985 and has been increasing in popularity over those 30 years. The restaurant is set over three floors, the ground floor, the basement and Capri on the first floor, perfect for parties up to thirty people with a small outdoor roof terrace. Hustle, Bustle and full to the brim, if it’s Neapolitan authenticity you crave, come on down and enjoy our menu!
