A 20-year history



The San Lorenzo Restaurant is born

It was in 1999 that our family decided to start this project, opening the doors of a restaurant where they could transform their love of cooking into high quality dishes inspired by Italian tradition.



Roman Piechnik becomes director of the restaurant

After 5 years spent in Italy, during which he fell in love with the cuisine of this country, he returned to Warsaw and decided to make his passion his job. In the 2002 he became director of the Ristorante San Lorenzo, proving to be a manager capable and up to his task.


Chef Luca Dolfi arrives in our kitchen

After years of experience in Italy, acquired working in the most famous places of his native land, the Chef Luca Dolfi in 2003 goes through the doors of our kitchen bringing with him his great humility, which combined with diligence and perseverance, make him one of the best chefs in Warsaw, able to create unique dishes inspired by the Italian tradition.



Inauguration of the wine cellar

In 2003 we decided to open a cellar in our restaurant, where our customers could find a wide and accurate selection of the best wines to accompany the unique taste of our dishes.

To further expand the venue, in 2007 we decided to create a new covered outdoor room, where we can accommodate our guests, so as to provide them with a comfortable experience in an elegant and familiar environment.
