It was great! Good food very nice staff only query would be what’s the table booking policy (usually I take it max 2 hrs) however I booked for 12pm then at 1pm we ordered extra cocktails and we were told table was booked in 20min and was handed the bill. Just nice to know when reserving so you don’t feel rushed. Still highly recommend and enjoyed it for the hour.

While the food was quite good, we were seated very close to a couple and it felt like we were on top of them. This took away from our experience.

I really enjoyed it, would recommend and would go again. The only thing I wasn't so keen on was the coffee, which seemed over-roasted but maybe it was just the origin or the blend after all. Lovely place for brunch overall

Quick, attentive, but not obtrusive service. The food (Gambas, steak and rolled pork) and wine were fantastic. We were there on a Sunday and the early bird menu applied all day, so it was excellent value. We would definitely go back soon.

We booked San Lorenzo for my birthday dinner as it has really good reviews. We were seated promptly as soon as we arrived. Service was great! They were very attentive and friendly. However, the food wasn’t that great. I ordered a sardine appetizer and it was very sour as well as the mint & honey daiquiri. I didn’t even finished my drink but overall, great restaurant with amazing service from staff!

We had a reservation and we were seated promptly. We enjoyed a couple of appetizers, a fish entree, and the tiramisu and pot of creme for dessert. Everything was great, but our favorites were the desserts. They were fantastic! We enjoyed watching the kitchen staff from the window in the bathroom prepare our meal. The early bird special looked amazing too and was a good deal, but the deal was over by our reservation time.

I booked this place on a whim,
I booked it for myself and him.

We were on the dart on our way to town, hungover to bits and feelin quite down.

We arrived and were greeted like king george and queen mary,
Before our first drink we were still feelin quite hairy.

The service was quick and the tunes they were a pumpin,
When the eggs benners was put down it was really quite somethin.

We nommed the lot and looked at each other,
I hailed the waitress and we stayed for another.

By the time we got in I was chilled as can be,
'Can we forever do hangovers like that?' Says he.

I pondered this and dreamt of our brunch,
for the price above its weight it did punch.

Unauthentic, mediocre food. The service was horrible as well. Either I was being rushed or being ignored. This place isn’t worth it.

I've been here before and the service has definitely improved. The staff couldn't have been more helpful.. Food was really good, we went with the avocado and a side of bacon. There was also a great set lunch menu that I would try if going back again.

The location is very nice and the service really good. However the food was not really up to the name. We went for a brunch and it was a disaster.The bagels were burnt and gummy, the poached eggs either not cooked or overcooked, and the ham really dry. Definitely overpriced for such quality.

Italian place with a bit of vibe. Enjoyed the meal, mid market price and well cooked and tasty dishes that were nicely done. Not fancy at all.

Staff lovely.

The wine and starters were very nice, but we all 3 had a different pasta dish and none of us were impressed. It was quantity over quality.
The starters were very nice, and the service very good, though the mains were not good value and would put me off returning

Also - their vegetarian food was not actually vegetarian - rennet is in the food. There was a disclaimer at the back of the menu I saw when ordering dessert - not good enough

We visited in early August, 2019 and really enjoyed ourselves. We are a family of 5, 2 adults 3 kids aged 13 and 10. We have been to San Lorenzo's before but not all together. The children loved their first dining experience here and will certainly want to go back. Lovely food, great staff. Friendly and very patient and polite. Excellent all round.

Book well in advance if you want a table. It fills up very fast!

The waiters were very patient when our friend was running late, were naturally conversational and laid back. They asked where we were going afterwards. When we told them it was the famous Drag Queen Bingo at The George, they recommended that we don't take too long for dinner due to the event's extreme popularity, which was very sound advice. My chargrilled asparagus was just what the doctor ordered and my homemade pasta primavera was tender and juicy. Combine this with two glasses of crisp grillo white wine and a chunk of my friend's chocolate cheesecake and I was ready to bound down the road to Drag Queen Bingo. The event, as advised, was already really busy, but we managed to get a table - I'm glad we listened to the wise men! I'll definitely be returning as the food was really comforting and flavorsome, we felt right at home and we got great value for money. The bill came to just under 200 euro for five people. We had two courses each out of the early bird menu, which came to roughly 35-40 per person, including wine and extras.

We had the chicken dish which was fab and the pork belly, beautifully cooked.
For dessert the pavlova was a let down, nothing special about it, could do this at home, should change this to roulade or something a more restaurant standard! Cheesecake was nice.

Mid week brunch was fab!!! We had our table from 12:30 & it it was lovely & quiet. Food was excellent & plentiful. The side orders are large so definitely share them to save €. We also shared a dessert as they are €8.50.
Overall we had a lovely afternoon & the staff were very attentive
