Momma's the best!

Creativity in the kitchen. Lets cut to the chase. The veal Parmesan is to die for. Don't neglect the appetizers. They are creative and awesome. Try the wild mushroom bruschetta or the calamari with shrimp and deep fried lemon slices. This isn't your grandfather's Itallian diner. This is a family... read more

The restaurant is very fancy and the workers are very friendly. The prices are very high and the type of people in the restaurant were mostly retired and wealthy looking folks. Definitely not for a family, but would be good for couples. Food was delicious though.

We had a great meal here. We ate midweek and early, and it was very quiet and relaxed. We tried for a second visit on a Friday night but the place was packed at 6pm so I would recommend making a reservation if you are planning to visit over the weekend. They have high chairs but no children's menu. This... More

Excellent choice for a delicious meal. We were blown away by the generous portions. The blue ribbon winner of entrees in our group was the prosciutto wrapped chicken. We all came away with doggy bags and a very full tummy.

Service slow, beers pricy ($11), food ok but overpriced. Over all a pleasant meal. Despite three request for bread, it took 20 minutes before it arrived. Lamb shank was tasty but a very small portion.

The décor in Lilly's is very modern and inviting, the times I have eaten there, I have always thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The service is excellent and you never feel rushed.

This is an excellent restaurant in any size town or city. We have visited several times and also ordered food to take on our boat. Every meal was very tastey, well prepared and the proportion was generous. Staff are polite, knowledgeable and very attentive. The decor is attractive and the design allows for conversation. We like this restaurant a lot... More

I have eaten Several times over the past few years at Lilly's. Her tag line is "life is too short for ordinary food" isn't that the truth! and this is not ordinary. Lilly's food is flavourful, carefully prepared, and offers generous portions. Most people take home food they couldn't finish. The atmosphere is simple and modern but welcoming. Lilly personally...

Lovely dinner. Friendly service. Calamari was superb! Entire meal very good. Our entire party enjoyed their meals.... We can be rather fussy !!!! Only suggestion is to serve smaller servings. Two people can easily share a pasta entree. Very busy. Suggest reservations

Unfortunately, the three of us had theatre ticket to King's Wharf and therefore we had less time available for dinner than we would have liked, as it turned out. For appetizer we had the side Caesar Salad with "Extreme Garlic" dressing, absolutely delicious, the side House Salad with lots of goodies on top and the Tapenade. The interesting thing about...
