With high quality ingredients and laid back casual style, San Lorenzo's is now the hottest restaurant for locals and those visiting Dublin for quality Italian food with a NYC twist. And course our famous brunch, the #brunchofchampions , hailed as the best brunch in Dublin! We believe in seasonal, locally sourced Irish produce where possible. Our pork is single farm Co.Wicklow, our beef is Leinster, Hereford or Angus cross breed, our lamb is Co. Kildare Curragh grass fed, our chickens are barnyard humanly reared and our fish and seafood is sustainable and mostly from our Irish Coastal waters. We make all our own pastas, breads and all our desserts and ice creams. Virtually everything is made in house. We delight in preparing the best Ireland has to offer. #ModernItalianNYCstyle #Brunchofchampions

Delighted to find an interesting wine list, with several off the beaten track, premium wines being offered by the glass. Pecan pie and a glass of Grahams tawny port were a sublime ending to a lovely meal. Lovely server.
This is how dining out should be.

Food was amazing. Massively appreciated the complimentary prosecco to compensate the delay in being seated. Service at our table was incredibly delayed for taking orders, menus and payment, but then also felt rushed at the end (despite being seated late). Overall good experience and would go again, was really just our server.

The booking process was simple and a customary reminder was received. The service was really excellent and our waitress was very engaging and professional and "knew her menu" fully.
Our brunch was very tasty and the quantity was generous.
I would recommend San Lorenzo and as a side point, the groups on both sides of us seemed very pleased with their choices too.

great food! great service! only negative was waiting at the door to be seated, as there is no room for people to stand as the door area is very cramped, leaving you stand in the way before you are seated.

Food was nice and a good choice on the menu. However, the 1 hour and 15 mins time limit on the tables is ridiculous!!! We were asked to vacate the table 4 times and hadn't even gone over the allocated time!! Think it's a bit overrated to be honest.

Food was delicious. And we hadn't mentioned it but my son was opening his birthday presents from his siblings and the waiter spotted it and brought his ice cream with a candle on it. Great service. Thank you.

Brunch booked for 11 am and at 11.59 am, we were told we had to vacate the table. When we queried this, we were told the brunch table is for 1 hour 15 mins and we had been there 1 hour 11 mins. Timed from when my guest arrived ten mins early. We will not go back

Although we thoroughly enjoyed the excellent food, the staff did damage our experience. We were consistently rushed and practically pushed out the door after we had eaten, even though we had ordered drinks, which we then had less than five minutes to enjoy. The bill was also pushed on us the second our plates were collected. This had been a 22nd birthday brunch for 6 people and we felt that perhaps if we had been an older group we would have been treated slightly better, or perhaps the resteraunt had simply been overbooked, but we did notice other groups seemed to be far less rushed than we were. Again the food and drinks were excellent, as was the venue itself.

We were a large group for a late lunch / early dinner on a Friday afternoon., The service was fast and efficient and the staff very helpful. The food was great and the deserts were delicious. A number of or party arrived late, after the kitchen was closed, but they very kindly and arranged for starters and desert to be served. Overall a very good experience.

It all seemed to go well for my guests but on the recommendation of the our waitress I went for the steak over the chicken. Even with a steak knife I couldn't cut the meat with the sinews running through it. You'd think, with a recommendation, they would make sure the cut of meat was a nice piece. Apology offered and nothing else. Great atmosphere in the place and as I said all other guests were happy. Just be weary of a waitress recommending the higher priced option.

Could be somewhat forgivable if the food was outstanding which it was not.

We dont get away much as we have small kids, so we did a little research and came acccross San Lorenzo's. The menue says it all. Such a nice spot to go if you appreciate good quality food. Also great service and beautiful interior design. Its not the cheapest but is great value for money!

Despite booking a table in advance we had to wait for 15 minutes to be seated because of how ridiculously busy the restaurant was during brunch hours on a Sunday. The queue to get a table went all the way out the door and everyone was extremely loud, so it was hard to enjoy the meal when we had a long line of people just standing over our table. When we finally managed to get our bill we had to squeeze through the crowd to get out. I don’t know if this is a norm at San Lorenzo’s or this day was just an anomaly but I definitely wouldnt recommend it because of this experience; the food was fine but nothing out of the ordinary, there are plenty of fantastic brunch spots around Dublin where you wouldn’t experience this kind of madness.
