We have been to Fat's many times and it is consistently good! We like everything on the menu! It is difficult to choose what to order because it is all so good!

We visited Minneapolis the weekend prior to the Super Bowl. We had pizza delivered and it was really good. The crust is good and it was delivered hot. It was a little salty. The Stromboli was awesome. I would definitely return.

The concierge recommended Fat Lorenzo’s and it was no disappointment. Loved the pizza and hot sandwiches. Everything came hot and with in 45 min on a Saturday night. The pizza was a hit and very cheesy. They definitely don’t skimp on the mozzarella. Will definitely...More

Fat Lorenzos seriously served one the best sandwiches I've ever had, the Fat's Special. It is a simple sandwich, but it was sooo good. My wife enjoyed her pizza as well! Definitely recommend!

Authentic Italian food. Can be spendy. I have spent over $30 for a gigantic 3 topping pizza but it was worth ever penny! I highly recommend the Italian sausage sandwich. Fairly priced and just monstrous. I couldn't finish it. Has a little bite to it...More

NY style, way to heavy, cheesy and greasy. Decent pizza, but you'll pay for it. Pizza by the slice available, full pizzas are typically too much for us
