Quirky Atmosphere - Great Pizza

Enjoyed eating at Lilly's Pizza for the first time - long time on our "want do that" list. Salad was very tasty - included pizza dough croutons and pecans which I truly enjoyed. Pizza was not a thin crust - really enjoyed it. We ordered Canadian bacon, pineapple, red onion - quite tasty... read more

Unique atmosphere, nice outdoor seating, rustic urban decor which is really nice. However way too loud inside couldn't possibly hold a conversation indoors with anyone. Doors to bathrooms with anatomically correct art of male and female (so might not want to bring young kids here). Pizza was okay as was brochette that we had nothing special.

Lilly's pizza is amazing, that's all that needs to be said. They serve a thicker crust with fresh ingredients and an amazing sauce.

I love the fresh ingredients that Lilly's uses, and we frequently order delivery from them. Usually they are pretty close to the mark on just how long it will be (and yes it will be pretty long sometimes). The calzones are awesome, salads fresh, the manicotti is delicious, and the pizza is great with a spectacular list of toppings. My... More

If you don't mind standing/waiting in line for 45 minutes and if you're lucky, finding a table, then Lilly's is for you. Surly, grunge waitstaff is so hip, you'll look past the overpriced, bready pizza and pat yourself on the back for eating with the "cool kids." Kudos you!

The pizza here is worth the wait and you can bet there will be one. It is a small, typical pizza place but the pizza is awesome. I loved it.

My daughter and I were looking for the best pizza in Raleigh. After searching the internet, we decided to try Lilly's Pizza. When we got there, the line was only 3 or 4 people long. But it took them FOREVER to take an order. Take outs could walk right by and get their order, while we waited. And waited. Meanwhile,... More

Came here on a friend's recommendation, but unfortunately I cannot say this was a great dining experience. The pizza was decent, but not outstanding - certainly would not say it deserves its great reputation. I personally found the dining area to be small, loud, and unpleasant - I can see how the atmosphere would appeal to some (particularly college students),... More

Visiting our son and daughter for Thanksgiving week, we were looking for a good local pizzeria. Lilly's got good reviews so we gave it a try. We arrived just after five on a Sunday evening to find a few people at tables but the place was not packed so we seated ourselves, grabbed a menu from the counter and got... More
