We enjoyed a lovely meal with great service in early February. It was a fun place to catch up with friends we had not seen in several years. So glad they recommended we come here. It's one of their favorite places.

We had visited some years back and found lorenzos acceptable. But today's experience revealed food prepared without inspiration. The salad was presented as it was tossed and emptied on to the plate. Minestrone was tomato base with carrots and some beans . The signature canneloni was soggy layers of pasta with tough chicken , smothered in a marinara. I usually... More

Visited 2017-03-13 at 7:00. Enjoyed caprese and sausage green chili soup. The tomatoes and mozzarella were fresh, and the soup was delicious.

We had dinner at Lorenzo's where my Crab Ravioli in lemon butter sauce was delicious and had a nice salad with it, too! Hubby does not remember what he ate but remembers enjoying his meal and the glass of wine he had with it.

This is a more traditional checkered tablecloth (sans tablecloth) Italian restaurant. We enjoyed a pasta special. The menu includes most Italian restaurant selections. Restaurant is clean and the service is competent. Not open for Saturday lunch.

Went one night when we were hungry for Italian. I ordered spaghetti an meatballs...something so simple should have been good. I was disappointed. The meatballs were mushy and sweet. Spaghetti was bland. Won't be back.

Lorenzo's has amazing service and the people are very friendly! However, everything I've ordered from here has been overly salty and oily (even the salads were salted). You may ask, "if the food is so terrible, why do you return?" Unfortunately, this is New Mexico and you have so few choices that you really want to be sure before you... More

Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic. We highly recommend this Italian restaurant, located on University Anenue directly across the street from New... More

My wife and I have been to Lorenzo's more times than we can count, and we don't plan to stop anytime soon. The food is consistently outstanding. I've tried almost everything on the menu at one time or another, and I haven't found anything I didn't enjoy. We occasionally order one of their pizzas to go, and we've always enjoyed... More
