This is the type of place where I would be a regular if I lived here. The service was very friendly but not over the top. The food choices were great, I loved the green chili lasagna. The bread could be a meal by itself. If you like a unique flavor, try this place. You won't be disappointed.

My wife and I eat at Lorenzo's often, so we went there for my birthday. The food, service, and atmosphere always make this an enjoyable place to visit.

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
