The pretty near perfection and not 150% perfect is that my patner and I had to wait 30 seconds after we arrived to be asked what we wanted to drink

I had dinner here on a Monday in January. The place was half full but the manager only greeted a select few. The 2 waiting staff had difficulty with speaking English. My first 2 wine choices from the short wine list were unavailable. The decor was awful. Room was dominated by a very large painting, possibly done by a 10... More

I visited San Lorenzo with my gf on a recommendation but we were left overall disappointed. First impressions were good as the ambience is nice and decor smart but we were left waiting 10-15 mins before being offered a drink and that was the story of the night. Mains took ages and then when offered desert with empty glasses, we... More

Dinner for 4 cost £55 per head with starters, mains, dessert and drinks. Food was good apart from John Dory main course where fish was overdone. Friendly staff and restaurant had a great atmosphere. Relaxing evening where you able to eat and talk with no pressure to pay and leave.

The food here is good but not worth the price. The famed lobster linguine was decidedly average if not poor - with chewy lobster. You expect different for what they charge. However my friend's dish was excellent. The service is good - friendly and attentive, and the ambience is good too. One of the few places in this area where... More

A mark of a good restaurant is doing the simple things well, and San Lorenzo certainly achieves that. The food is excellent, fresh and well presented. yes, it's at the pricey end, but it's a great choice for a special occasion or if you're feeling you really do need to treat yourself

5 of us met at the restaurant coming in in dribs and drabs and the Restaurant assured us we would have the table for the whole evening - no hurry, a good start, the food was really very good and the service incredibly helpful and friendly. My pasta was delicious.
