The menu, one of the largest in the city, is packed with recipes dating back generations, and includes fresh Gulf Seafood, Prime Rib, and home-made pasta. If you’re in the mood for good ‘old home-style cooking’ made from scratch daily with the freshest of ingredients, then Laurenzo’s is your place. The family has been cooking with love in Houston for over three generations, just the way their matriarch Mama Ninfa Laurenzo taught them.

    We had a fabulous lunch at Laurenzo’s! The service was impeccable, and every bite was delicious. We shared the prime rib quesadillas and they were so good. There was plenty for two women to share. Thank you for a great time.

    I love this restaurant. The food quality is always great. My only issue is that there is always something wrong with my bill. They always fix it, but it gets old having to double check the bill every time.

    We were there for Mother's day and ordered a cup of soup, cup of red beans and rice. We split the roasted beet salad. Our entrees were the 8 oz prime rib with asparagus. Everything was delicious with the exception that both 8 oz prime ribs had hard gristle running through them. We have been to Laurenzo's many times and often order the prime rib (it is the best) but this time the quality was not the same and it was only after we had eaten a portion of the meat before we noticed the problem with the gristle. Our service was great (as usual) and I did not bring this issue to his attention but I feel like the individual who prepared our meals should have noted the problem when they were slicing the meat and plating it. I needed 2 toothpicks to remove the stringy material from my teeth before I could continue my meal. Otherwise our meal was great.

    First time there and had no prior expectations. It was beautiful, comfortable and the food and service was great. My husband was thrilled that Prime Rib was one of their specialties!

    We hadn’t been to Laurenzo’s in a while and I don’t know why! There is plenty of easy parking out front. We walked in and were immediately greeted by a very friendly and courteous hostess who checked us in for our reservation and promptly seated us. Our waiter Oscar quickly arrived, and took excellent care of us the whole evening. The food was terrific, and the menu was very deep. We enjoyed a really terrific evening and shall return soon.

    In our dozens of dines with Laurenzo’s, this was the first time we have been disappointed. Our disappointment was due to the TERRIBLE SERVICE we received. Our waiter seemed to be in some phase of dementia. Even after verbal requests, he forgot things like our salads (entree’s were delivered and we never received our salads), iced teas were not refilled, and several other requests were totally ignored. It wasn’t that he was overwhelmingly busy - - - mostly, he was standing over by the kitchen and laughing with other staffers. We ordered dessert, and it didn’t come. As he brought our check, he said “Can I get you guys anything else?” To which I answered, “Yes, how about the desserts we ordered and the charges for which are on this bill?” He then brought our desserts, but never apologized for the salads and the awful level of service he provided. Seriously, this guy is NOT “Laurenzo’s Quality.” He’s a total goof-ball and is a negative reflection on your operation.
