The restaurant was busy on our Friday evening visit. We were promptly seated. Our server seemed spread thin, serving many tables. There were 3 gals who circled the tables, gathering dirty dishes, filling water glasses & we found them more helpful than our server. They...More

It is a very nice restaurant. I would come here again. Desserts were fabulous. The salads were perfect. The entrees were excellent.

Prompt service and drink order. Wide variety of wine. Fresh hot bread brought first, and salads next. Usually dinner specials offered along with standard menu fare. Food was good, but nothing special. Atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. Simple dessert choices. Will return.

Wonderful people, delicious authentic Italian food, nice wine list, cozy romantic setting, reasonable prices, and a few steps away from a movie theater. What's not to love?!

Tonight we celebrated my birthday at Lanza's and it was a wonderful evening. Lori and many others greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome. We had great food and service and a most enjoyable time. We will definitely return again and again.

Dining at Lanza's is a time machine back to early post-war Italian joints - only thing lacking is the candle-waxed chianti bottle and red checkered table cloths. The food is good enough,yet hardly original. There is a small but nice variety of salads, but the...More
