How to Identify a Better Pizza
The classic Pepperoni Pizza
Americans expect more from their pizza these days, but only one restaurant in Northeast Ohio has delivered outstanding flavor for 30 years.
It’s Lorenzo’s Pizzeria of Oberlin.
The Vegetable Deluxe Pizza
QUALITY. What sets Lorenzo's pizza apart from the rest? The quality of ingredients, personally selected by Larry Cariglio, owner and pizza maker. Bite into a slice and you're on a taste trip around America and Italy for the best ingredients available.

- A Piece of Oberlin College History ... and a Mystery
In the spring of 2013, Larry Cariglio acquired this black-and-white painting at a local estate sale. Now hanging in Lorenzo’s foyer, it was painted on a window shade.
