Fat Lorenzo's

5600 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55417 | Nokomis | 612-822-2040

Location Description:

Crayon your hopes and dreams on Fat Lorenzo's butcher-paper tablecloths while you await your big, toasty, bubble-crusted pizza. Use green to sketch the friendly ambiance in one of Minneapolis's most charming neighborhood pizza parlors. Use yellow to draw the goopy cheese bread, of the welcome-to-America's-Dairyland variety. But use lots and lots of red to present the sweet sauce and even-sweeter room-ringing murals: They're Valentines on a snowy day.
