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.

The restaurant was very cold (or we were sitting beneath the vent) and they have been out of the meatless hamburger for awhile now (however we realize it's not their fault). Other than that it was a great meal and we will be back.

Hello. First, I would like to say that our server, Jennifer , was amazing. She was pleasant, communicative, and helpful on our choices. Service was also nice. One complaint I’d like you to address is that you do not have gluten free dishes, such as pasta. That is an important option for many diners. I’d much appreciate that choice.

Food is consistently good, and there’s plenty of it. We went early and there was no noise, although it can get loudish during the dinner rush. Overall a nice experience.

The food was good. I was disappointed in that after making a reservation with you and noting that this was a birthday celebration, I had to remind the waiter that it was a birthday celebration. If I had not done so, it would have gone unnoticed. I was a little embarrassed at having to tell the waiter, as when I got there I asked another waiter if it was noted that this was a birthday celebration, and he assured that my waiter would definitely know. When we were finished with our lunch nothing happened and as the waiter was fixing to bring the check, I had to remind him that it was a birthday celebration lunch, and he acted as if he didn't know. Why asked your clients if this is a special occasion, if it is not going to be recognized by the restaurant.

This is our "go to" place for any celebration or basically any night out! The food is always amazing and the service is friendly and wonderful. I tried the blackened red fish with lemon butter sauce -- delicious!! I could have eaten the sauce with a spoon and called it dessert! So tasty! We love everything about this place!

We were seated at our reserved time.
Our server patiently waited for everyone to view the menu then he took orders.
Three of the four alcoholic beverages (mimosas) arrived very quickly while the forth (a cocktail) took a while. Two of the orders arrived plated incorrectly, wrong protein/right vegetable was served. The server was not present to correct the issue so the parties swapped their proteins. This put a damper on the entire meal because one of the affected diners, our mother, was also the honored for the dining occasion, Mother's day.

We always enjoy a wonderful dinner and a lovely dining experience at Laurenzo’s. Atmosphere and ambiance add to the dining experience. It is always a pleasure to enjoy “nice sit down experience “ for dinner to break up the monotony of everyday meals. We will be back again.
