Italian
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 Osso Buco; 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 were there this last Sunday evening and are already anxious to return. Our server Chris was a delight, very knowledgeable about the wine list, the menu and all the alterations that were available to items. Our group of four had salads( all crisp and very tasty and suitable for sharing). Ihad the seafood linguine-a huge serving but so light and flavorful! Two of our party had the chicken spedini and loved it. The last member of the group-who is usually the most difficult to really please —had a steak special that he raved about.

This restaurant is a gem!!

We are frequent diners at Lorenzo's. We eat vegetarian and seafood and are hooked on the Barramundi. But we also enjoy their seafood risotto and their fish specials. Olivia took great care of us and the owner, Larry, himself brought us our entrees. We introduced a couple of friends to Lorenzo's and they very much enjoyed their dinners. My husband and I, and the two of them, split the tomato mozzarella caprese salad, and we all shared the polenta appetizer special and seafood risotto. The kitchen split our plates for us and did not charge us to do so. Highly appreciated! It was a pleasant evening and we opted to eat outside. All and all, a great experience and we will, of course, be back!

It is one of the few Northern Italian restaurants on the Hill, and a welcome change from Sicilian and Neapolitan food. The spaghetti Bolognese was excellent. My wife had a small pizza which she pronounced very good, too.

Another great meal. I love going to Lorenzo's and having their osso bucco. It never disappoints served with risotto. Everything was wonderful. I had a Caesar salad and great wine. The service was wonderful and the waitress was knowledgeable. I can't wait to go again.

The food was good. The service was fine. It was a bit of a challenge to have conversation at the table on a Saturday night because of some larger groups that could have been managed better. So if you are looking for a place to have a nice dinner and conversation, this might not be a great place on a Saturday night. But every other night I have been there has been fine. A recommendation to the staff would be to be better at keeping the door closed in the larger group room to manage the noise. And keep the larger groups grouped together in the one room and the smaller tables in the other room together.

Great wine & drink selection.

Great northern Italian cuisine in a very inviting atmosphere. Service is always top notch. If you have a party of 5-6 and you want a private dining/kitchen combo experience ask if you can reserve their special room off the kitchen. It’s great for private conversation and fun experience with a view of the kitchen activities!

We went to Lorenzo's for our anniversary. It is located in The Hill, an neighborhood known for its Italian food. The restaurant has a lively bar in the front but in the back it is a more subdued atmosphere, perfect for a date night or small group gathering. We had the Angel Hair pasta which was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and explained the food choices well. We would definitely go back and recommend Lorenzo's.

It might be time for an interior update, but it's really the food and service that matter. Lorenzo's is consistently good, and the wait staff is well trained. In addition to the regular menu, we like the seasonal daily specials, including dessert specials such as fig mascarpone gelato. That by itself was worth the trip. The restaurant has a nice little wine list, too.

There's quiet sidewalk dining, and if you come early or late, you can talk at a table inside without raising your voice. Best of all, Lorenzo's is one of the few restaurants in the area that's open on Mondays! We'll definitely be back.
