San Lorenzo

San Lorenzo is Chef Massimo Fabbri's most personal and passionate endeavor yet, paying homage to his family and hometown of Monsummano Terme in the Tuscan region of Italy.  The menu features simple but perfect preparation of fine, fresh ingredients from the Tuscan region; the classic dishes with which Chef Fabbri grew up.  Named after Massimo's son, who in turn is named for San (or Saint) Lorenzo, the patron saint of chefs, this Italian restaurant is a fine addition to the Shaw neighborhood.  Closest Metro is Convention Center.
