Review on Lorenzo’s Ristorante
Gianluigi and Susan Lorenzini's popular venue is a firm favourite with the locals and many others who also make the trip out from Preston to his roadside trattoria. Formerly the Caravella, it offers sound North Italian cooking in agreeable surroundings.
Spicy chicken livers with Strega, chorizo and Tropea onions is a favourite starter, alongside butterflied sardines with red onion and myrtle chutney. Pizzas and pasta dishes are many and varied, and the list of specialities is a mini European tour, taking in not only bistecca pizzaiola and padellata contadina (peasant-style cassoulet with polenta, spagna beans and guinea fowl in Barolo and lentil broth) but also roulade of salmon and prawns with béarnaise sauce and veal Stroganoff with paprika and wild fennel. Gastronomic theme evenings are a regular attraction.
