We just moved into the neighborhood and wanted to try this place and we are sure glad we did. It was a bit odd that the by the glass came in a small water glass but beyond that it was everything we hoped for. The...More

A couple of business acquaintances suggested this place for lunch. Tables lined up outside gave this place a nice out-doors lunch appeal. A varied menu -- I had the fusilli roma -- very tasty, generous portion with lots of mushrooms and spinach. I'll want to...More

We recently held a post-funeral luncheon at Lorna's for about 14 people (great for groups but it is a cozy-sized restaurant, not a banquet hall). Everyone ordered their own food and I ordered extra appetizers and breads to pass around. Everything was delicious. The sauces...More

We came upon this restaurant when I was "confused" about where I was. We entered the establishment tired and a bit disoriented. It is a nice place. Clean, open, spacepus. It was busy but not harried. We were seated at a table. The place smelled...More

Our family of 8 had a delicious dinner. The rissoto of the day, lasagna and chicken marsala were wonderful. The calzones are as big as a football and can easily feed two. The same goes for many pasta dishes. They also have pizzas

Never a disappointment. Steve and his staff are always wonderful. The food however, is even better. Exceptional Italian food made just like it came from Italy. Great selection, great place to meet up with friends and family.

I called in earlier today to order some pasta to be delivered to my house. A man picked up the phone and he was probably one of the rudest guys I've ever spoken to. He was so unhelpful and very sarcastic. Very unpleasant. I was...More

Lorna's is a strip mall gem! The food was so so good and large portions. VERY casual, not a place to experience high end date night ambiance but definitely a place you will return to for the food and the staff.
