Great food and service and very accomodating for our children. Reasonable wine list and a nice open fire to keep us warm on a very chilly night. We will be back.
Our experience at st. Lorenzo was wonderful the staff were fantastic as was the food. Atmosphere for a sunday lunch was relaxing which made our catch up with friends great.
