Lorenzo's Pizzeria

  • Food

Essential Information

16721 Orchard Stone Run
Charlotte, NC 28277


Sure, you’ve seen dozens of restaurants around town advertising “New York–style” pizza, but this family-owned spot from transplanted New Yorkers is the only real deal. The staff at Lorenzo’s Pizzeria knows great New York pizza is all about three things: fresh ingredients, great sauce, and a thin, foldable crust. Besides the best cheese pie in Charlotte, standouts include Grandma’s, with mozzarella, crushed tomatoes, fresh basil, and garlic; and White, with mozzarella, ricotta, fresh garlic, and olive oil. Lorenzo’s also excels at entrées. The Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Sorrentino, and Sausage & Peppers are as good as you’ll find at the Feast of San Gennaro in New York’s Little Italy.
