Welcome to Lorenzo’s Italian Restaurant! Established in 1950 by the late Lorenzo Grosso. The restaurant is now in its seventh decade and third generation. Together with her son Peter, Angela Maffeo is carrying on the rich tradition established by her father by serving the finest Italian food for miles around to thousands of new and loyal customers every year.

The original restaurant was situated at 10 High Street in Taunton, Massachusetts, where the Taunton Mall is located today. This is where Lorenzo and his wife of 65 years, Geraldine, humbly began, together performing the duties of “Chief Cook and Bottle Washer” and baking pizzas in a Dutch oven rotated by hand.

Two dining rooms, a lounge, and a banquet room were completed in 1981 which have hosted thousands of corporate and family banquets over the years. Lorenzo’s Cafe, which opened in 1994, is the ideal spot for outdoor dining, family reunions, company outings, and other functions.

In addition to line service and excellent food, Angela, Peter and their staff prepare many specialties as party platters for your dining pleasure at home or for business entertainment.
