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.

Swordfish Risotto and Shrimp Marinara were amazing as was the service. Sister recommended Lorenzo's and I was not disappointed.

We love Lorenzo's and come here often. My kids LOVE the pizza so it's great for the family. We like to sit in the kitchen room if it's available so the kids can watch their pizza get made. The food is always delicious and the portions are generous. You can never go wrong with Lorenzo's!

I enjoyed Lorenzo’s. The food was great and the service responsive. The ambiance was a bit loud, but it was Mother’s Day, so I am not all that surprised. I had the Veal Piccata. It was delicious!

The dinner was wonderful. The service provided by Jennifer was superb. I enjoyed the Veal. It was delicious. I would recommend the House Salad over the Cesar Salad. If you are looking for basic spaghetti and meatballs, this is not the place. If you are looking for Northern Italy food - you cannot go wrong!

Booked online for my birthday dinner and not one mention from staff or our server - who by the way was about as unfriendly as anyone I’ve met. The food was good but not worth the drive or fighting to find a parking spot within 5 blocks of the place. First and probably only visit.

Spinach gnocchi was best that I have ever tasted. Breadsticks are exceptional. Angus beef with potatoes and mushrooms were delectable. Calamari needed some dipping sauce. Spimoni made for tasty shared desert. Never get tired of this place.

We prefer that the servers take our order and pass by the table and make eye contact to see if we need anything ...rather than interrupt our conversation, repeatedly to ask “how is everything?” “Is everything tasting good?” Everything is great which is why we go back every month— if something is not we’ll stop them as they go by

My boyfriend and I made last minute rezzy's here for our first visit after our plans fell through- although it was a little pricier than what I expected we went all out and were not at all disappointed! Upon our arrival I noticed an empty table on their (small-ish) patio, the staff kindly and promptly set it up for us after we asked to be seated outside if possible. The arancini appetizer was beautiful and the portion was perfect for a couple or party of two. We both got an entree special, for $30 per entree we each recieved a beef fillet, steamed veggies and au gratin potatoes that were out of this world. I asked for n't steak cooked medium abd it was perfect. We also ordered a couple of bottles of wine that were reasonably priced, a 2014 Lagaria pinot grigio at $26 a bottle I believe. Our waitress Maureen was pleasant and informative, and the rest of the staff made sure our plates were always cleared quickly after finishing and that our waters were full. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to someone looking to celebrate a special evening or try something new for date night!

Went here for my birthday with my family - I wanted to try something new. I was very pleased with the service and the food. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I ordered the risotto and veal - it was great. My husband order a filet and it was cooked perfectly. The decor is a little bit dated, but we were going for the food. I would recommend Lorenzo's to family/friends and I would go back again - there were a couple things on the menu I'd like to try.

Very nice decor. Good menu. Alrhough we did the $25 menu for Restaurant week, with a glass of wine and 2 beers our bill with tip was over $100. This would have been a fantastic $50 meal but $100 busted the budget. We'd go back though. It was lovely.
