The staff and food are always exceptional! Great place for pizza and a salad or any other type Italian food. Chicken parmigiana is out of this world good!

It's not easy being a vegetarian in New Mexico, but Lorenzo's didn't disappoint. I ordered a salad that was utter perfection, and the bread itself is work a return visit. Enzo greeted me at the door and we had a delightful conversation. The rest of...More

This is the type of place where I would be a regular if I lived here. The service was very friendly but not over the top. The food choices were great, I loved the green chili lasagna. The bread could be a meal by itself....More

My wife and I eat at Lorenzo's often, so we went there for my birthday. The food, service, and atmosphere always make this an enjoyable place to visit.

We enjoyed a lovely meal with great service in early February. It was a fun place to catch up with friends we had not seen in several years. So glad they recommended we come here. It's one of their favorite places.

We had dinner at Lorenzo's where my Crab Ravioli in lemon butter sauce was delicious and had a nice salad with it, too! Hubby does not remember what he ate but remembers enjoying his meal and the glass of wine he had with it.

This is a more traditional checkered tablecloth (sans tablecloth) Italian restaurant. We enjoyed a pasta special. The menu includes most Italian restaurant selections. Restaurant is clean and the service is competent. Not open for Saturday lunch.

Went one night when we were hungry for Italian. I ordered spaghetti an meatballs...something so simple should have been good. I was disappointed. The meatballs were mushy and sweet. Spaghetti was bland. Won't be back.
