Gem in Midland

We went to dinner at Lilly’s Italian Eatery in Midland, Ontario on a Saturday in January 2015. It was wonderful! Friendly service, nice atmosphere and really great food. This restaurant opened about 5 years ago, but this is the first time we had a chance to try it. We were happy that we did... read more

Every time we eat there the place is too noisy to carry on conversations. Service is hit and miss, sometimes you wait too long to be seen, although the food is consistently good. Not worth it.

Lilly's is wonderful. We have been many times over the past few years, and we are never disappointed. Service is always exceptional, and the food is phenomenal.

We decided to try this restaurant for dinner as most of the other places in town were busy with private functions. Many of the entrees we asked for were already sold out. After ordering from the limited menu of what was still available, we waited a VERY long time for our meals to be served. My gluten free pasta was... More

OMGoodness-! Decadent and delicious. Have you checked out their wine, beer and scotch menu? Definitely upscale...especially fo a small town restaurant. If I were to have any compliant at all... the atmosphere needs to be upgraded as do the washrooms.

Love the restaurant, the décor and service. The food was hot and delicious. Lots of variety of pastas and types of meats. My wrapped brie I highly recommend. Very relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for experience. Agnes C.

Had a recommendation to eat here. It was the worst veal parmigiana I had ever eaten. Soggy, with the breading falling off and something that didn't even taste like veal. It came suspiciously fast, so it was pre-made somehow. Maybe frozen? My husband did enjoy his seafood pasta dish, but 1 out of 2 is not a great record. And... More

The service was excellent and enthusiastic as the owners handsome and personable son outlined the specials and choices. You could just feel his love of good food as he explained each dish. My...

This is the second time we had eaten there, first being last summer on vacation, and we liked it enough to give it another shot. Once again, the two pastas we had were excellent, the food really is good. The service on the other hand was very inattentive. There were 7 tables and 3 servers so you'd think it would... More
