The Hill is known for being the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis. The majority of the immigrants were from the Sicilian region; however, a few were from other parts of the country, and brought along with them regional differences in cooking. We recently had the pleasure of visiting Lorenzo’s Trattoria, which highlights northern Italian dishes.

Lorenzo’s sits on a corner lot in a two-story, beige structure with green and white awnings, and a small patio on one side of the corner. Inside the restaurant is more spacious than it would appear from outside with multiple rooms for guests to be seated inside. The walls are a bright yellow, and feature black-and-white family photos, while the ceilings have a single chandelier hanging from the tray ceiling. The decor is fairly simple, and a classic restaurant style.

We visited to celebrate our anniversary and began with red wines from the Piedmont region. The wine was quite delicious, and the service swell. For dinner we had the angel hair pasta and the grilled beef tenderloin medallions, which were both absolutely delicious. Additionally, the servings were quite large, providing us with seconds for the following day. Afterwards, we shared a delectable piece of tiramisu. Throughout the meal the service was good, the atmosphere nice, and the food incredible, ensuring we had a pleasant anniversary dinners.

Cheers to five years!
