I was shocked to find out my family was having a surprise birthday party for me. There were 20 people present. We all ordered off the menu some had chicken Parm some had eggplant others had macaroni and sausage or meatball and some had the chicken and broccoli rabe, all were delicious, I recommend this place to everyone. !!

Overall: There are better choices nearby. Feels like a place for regulars who probably come more for the comraderie than for the food. Won't be back. Food: We were surprisingly disappointed. After reading reviews here, we were eager to give this place a shot. We ordered the Crab Cake Special appetizer, NY style Calamari, Chicken Scarpariello with a side of... More

I was there on 18 October with a group of clergy. The service was friendly and the food as good as anything I ever had in Italy. The portions are huge. I would go back in a minute.

Went for the first time to a graduation 🎓 dinner. Food was really good. Good drinks and desserts were amazing, good experience for the first time visiting. Parking can be a lil overwhelming, there's a supermarket, barbershop and other stores around, but once u find a spot you are all set.

My husband and I dropped into Lorenzo's tonight for a meal as we were staying around the corner and mainly because it was in walking distance. And after reading reviews on here it seemed the obvious choice. It was as described by others as a friendly warm place to eat. The two waitresses were friendly and advised us on a... More

The atmosphere is stunning. There is a fireplace in the restaurant area; an out door patio with a pizza stove. Yes they make the pizzas out doors as well as inside. A very delicious Italian menu with home made desserts. They have full bar with tables and private rooms that lead to the outdoor patio for parties, conferences and more.... More

I've eaten here many times: for birthday parties, family gatherings, and with a few friends. Food has always been a cut above the rest. Service is good, nicely decorated in an Italian theme. Best of all is the exceptional Italian food.

As soon as you enter the door you are serviced immediately with excellent waiters. The salads were fresh and tasty, and the bread and butter is of high quality. We chose veal marsala and lasagna and were amazed that we never tasted any better. Five stars for Lorenzo's Ristorante Italiano.

My husband, Pete and I frequent Lorenzo's take out, mainly for the pizza. We absolutely LOVE it! We've tried pizza from other places around West Haven, but are stuck on Lorenzo's. I have never dined in, but will do so soon.
