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.

Amazing food and great service. Pizza is very authentic and pasta delicious. Good wine selection. Atmosphere always nice and tables spaced well so you are not on top of the neighbors! Parking can be difficult though.

The four of us dined at San Lorenzo on Friday night (two adults and two children). The restaurant itself was lovely and as it was a cold night, we were seated near the fireplace, which was great. The kids' pizzas were great, as were the antipasto dishes, but my veal was quite plain and lacked flavour, and my husband's steak was quite chewy and not the best cut either. The staff were friendly enough but we had to prompt them to take our order and it didn't seem as though they really wanted to be there. It was a good experience but not memorable enough to want to return.

We have been to San Lorenzo's on at least 3 occasions and have been impressed each time. The food is genuine Italian cuisine and delicious. The service is always excellent and always with a smile. Thanks again.

Food and service were great, venue was a little noisy for what a nice restaurant it is...I have been coming here since it was Sassy(old name/owner) maybe atmosphere could be changed with lighting or music...but overall Yum! We had the Ribeye steak with added broccoli...down with a nice italian sagniovese.

Food quite good The only problem are the windows, they are pretty old and if you are sitting close to them you can feel the cold drafts coming throw and is not a nice feelings . Bunnings sell the right stuff to fix the problem and is not expensive!!!
