Lorenzo’s features Northern Italian fare with a touch of contemporary flavor. Look to our menu for some of the classics as well as some modern Italian cuisine less prevalent on The Hill. Look forward to experiencing the authentic house-made gnocchi and risottos; or our signature dish, braised Ossobuco; our guests' ever favorite, Chicken Spedini; or a couple of the staff favorites, the Grilled Barramundi or Fabulous Veal Picatta.

At Lorenzo's the atmosphere is classy and laid-back. It is the type of restaurant where you can have a nice business dinner or enjoy a meal with the family.

We offer two beautiful private rooms, The Boardroom, which seats up to 14 or The Chefs Table which seats up to 8. You may choose to enjoy our patio on a beautiful day and savor one of the great Italian wines off our extensive wine menu. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable no matter what meal or day you visit. We look forward to showing you all we can offer at Lorenzo's Trattoria.

    We had a great experience for dinner. Visiting from Chicago, impressed by the food—homemade gnocchi!—and the mussels were phenomenal. Creme brulee dessert was also excellent. This place crushes it. Go!

    This is a wonderful rendition of old style Italian food. We saw lots of locals and obvious regulars coming in right at 5 to fill up the nicely tableclothed dining tables. We got to speak with the chef, asked for some small adjustments to our meals, and all input was warmly received. The angel hair pasta was divine, and the carpaccio meaty and delicious. The portions were big but we somehow were able to finish them! Great big drinks, gluten free options for all dishes, and the comfort of being treated like a wanted guest add up to a true delight.

    Food and drinks were very good. Had the ricotta truffle ravioli (evening special) which was phenomenal. It was a bit on the rich side but portion was just right to not overwhelm.

    I would describe the menu as Northern Italian cuisine. Not our first time dining here but first time for our two friends and we all had great meals. For appetizers we shared the calamari (included fried zucchini) and the Arancini. Both excellent starters. For the main entrees we had potato gnocchi, spinach gnocchi and risotto with shrimp, calamari and scallops in mushroom ragu. All done to perfection. No room for dessert but I’m sure that is delicious too. Athena was our server and did a great job of taking care of us. Always recommend Lorenzo’s to family and friends headed to The Hill.

    As always a perfect night the food there is perfection. The quality is the same every time I go it's wonderful. I've been many times over the last 15 years and I would recommend it to anyone. It's probably one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis Missouri.

    I took my wife, son (25) and daughter (21) to a nice dinner before an evening event. We had a couple bottles of wine, bruschetta for an appetizer, salads, and dinners that included the special. The ambience was nice, the friendliness and service from the staff top-notch, and some of the food was excellent. I loved the bruschetta, but my wife less so. Their house salad left something to be desired (the pistachios were a weird addition...). Many salads on the Hill are better. My son's barramunda (with polenta and spinach) was excellent and the mussels/linguini special was terrific. My daughter liked her fettuccini alfredo and the missus thought her chicken risotto was... okay. Some of the food was delightful enough that, when combined with the service, we'd go back. But enough missed the mark that I wouldn't give it five stars. Good, not great.

    This was our first time there. Reception staff and bus person were competent, cheerful, and welcoming. The bar and dining room were nice. Our waiter seemed very disinterested in his job. He had to be asked to fully describe the specials, though we noted that he was far more solicitous toward the older, more affluent looking four top seated next to us. My wife and I are both service industry vets; we commonly tip 30% for great service. Don't judge a book by its cover, guy. Cocktails were decent. Wine list was good. Our carpaccio appetizer wasn't great; dull and almost flavorless. The bib salad was excellent. We really liked the creamy, garlicy dressing that was studded with Volpe salami. Delicious! Around 20 minutes after being served our appetizer and salad, the waiter returned to ask us to repeat our wine and entrée order. So, that was a nice touch- forgetting to place our order and making us wait longer to eat. My pasta was well prepared and flavorful, though I found the add-on grilled sausage to be mediocre at best. I wondered if it was frozen before served. My wife said her Chicken Spiedini was merely good, not great. My final complaint about Lorenzo's is after finally serving us our meals, the waiter inquired as to whether we'd like a "sprinkle" of grated parmesan. I wish I'd said no because he then proceeded to throw a large serving spoon full of cheese on top of our meals. It was way too much cheese, and the delivery seemed passive/aggressive on the waiter's part. We receive great service and food at our usual Southwest St. Louis haunts like LoRusso's, Gian-Tony's, and Trattoria Marcella. We had one of the the best meals of our lives, graciously and competently served the evening before at Louie. We'll stick to those.

    I had a reservation and only had to wait a short time to be seated. The hosts gave us the option of a high top or a regular table and we chose the later, which I really appreciated. The service was wonderful. I never had to wait for my water to be topped off or for the table to be bussed. The food was excellent. We ordered the Oso Buco and the Seafood Pasta, both which were amazing! The service was wonderful. We will definitely go back. *Also want to note I saw the owner himself bussing and touching tables. I’ve worked in many restaurants in stl and have seen this on only a rare few occasions. He clearly cares about his business and I love that. Support local family owned business’s!!!

    It wasn't bad. Just when you go out for Italian food on the Hill, you have higher expectations. We knew this wasn't going to be a special place as soon as the bread was served - not very fresh scali, that seemed store bought. Our waiter didn't seem at all interested in serving us - just a job. The food was decent, but nothing that made us go "Wow"! Most disappointing were the "crispy calamari" - which were actually more soggy then crisp.

    The meal was great. We are from out of town and we love this place when visiting St. Louis. Food is amazing. This time though our waitress was awful. Just awful. It was clear we were going to be the “casualty” that evening. She offered the specials to every one around us. We had to ask about them. Same with dessert. She would hardly check in on us. My daughter and I did not really feel welcome. Hopefully one off.

    We went for a last minute dinner out. We hadn’t been to Lorenzo’s in years but had heard good things since we moved back to STL. Staff was very nice and the food was delicious. We loved the carpaccio. The goat cheese ravioli appetizer was good, too; the broth was delicious. The final dish was the simple angel hair pasta that my husband loved. We were too full for dessert but maybe next time.

    Upon arrival and after giving our name for the reservation, we were immediately seated. Our server was very knowledgeable with the various food selections and was totally on the ball. I had one of the specials and my companion had an item off the menu. We were both very pleased with out selections. I would highly recommend Lorenzo's and looking forward to eating there again. This isn't a negative towards the restaurant but I wish people would dress nicer when going to a fine restaurant. So many people there were dressed in jeans - they looked like they were going to go to a sporting event not to a nice restaurant. Such a shame in today's world people look like slobs when they go out. Lorenzo's is excellent! I would highly recommend it!
