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 always enjoy dining at Lorenzo's, one of our go to spots on The Hill.
The food is prepared by chefs who obviously care about quality and presentation.
Wine by the bottle is reasonable, and the service is outstanding.

Cocktails very good. Tomato mozzarella salad was very good but dressing a little heavy on vinegar. Veal Milanese and my partner’s Veal Picatta were both outstanding, tender and light and not greasy served with arugula and wonderful papperdalle. Tirumisu top notch and very good service.

It was a just average Italian restaurant. Decor was very nursing home'isnh but comfortable. Everyone was nice. Seemed like this was the servers first serving job so, I gave a lot of slack in serving. Now for food. The mussels were "slippery" to eat. Sauce had good flavor but the menu didn't describe what was in the center of the bowl. Polenta? The arancini were thick and lacked a little something, dry. Tasted pre fried then refrigerated, to only be baked when ordered. Osso bucco had good flavor and was tender. Risotto was done well and sauce was perfect.
Now, I highly recommend everyone stay away from the Seafood Risotto. Tasted like Chef Boyoardy with frozen small seafood and extremely over done risotto. Pasty and wished I didn't order it as I ate it. I could have asked for some else but it was eatable. Now, it could have been amazing with risotto cooked right with a cream mushroom sauce and fresh seafood of noticeable size.
We didn't bother staying for dessert.

We were tired rom playing in a Pickleball tournament all day and decided to show up 2 hours before our reservation and see if we could get sat and go back o our room and crash.

The staff was willing to accommodate and we had a great meal.
Thanks!,

This is a classic St Louis (on The Hill) restaurant that never fails to please. Excellent food, attentive service, and a special atmosphere. We go out of our way to eat there.

And soak up all The Hill has to offer.

Show up and they didn’t have our reservation, said there was an issue with Open Table. Gnocchi was very good, but there was way to much red sausage which was more like tomato paste. Chicken Spideni was good but had a lot of juice covering the whole plate to almost the brim. We do like this restaurant, but not as happy this time around

I was a little worried coming out of the pandemic that service would be a challenge. I was wrong. Our server was incredibly attentive, polite and knowledgeable. The piece of the meal was perfect. The food, as always, was excellent.

We always have the best service at Lorenzo's. This time just as good. However the food wasn't as visually appealing as it always is. My spaghetti not the same as in the past, a little too tart on the sauce. My guest for dinner had a grilled beef special (like a tenderloin) and the amount of pepper on the outside was just too much (we sent it back). I love this place. This time is was just a little off. We will be back!

My kids were impressed we celebrated Mother’s Day at a “fancy” restaurant. My son loved the appetizer we had never tried, the pizza was amazing, everything we tried was so good. Bar service was the fastest I have ever had and our waitress was sweet. Service was top notch. My kids are ready to be taken back, as am I. First place we have tried on the Hill and loved it!
