Love the pizza!

The first time you pull up to Lilly's and go inside you will wonder if you have made a mistake. Lilly's is not your typical pizza restaurant. No fancy decor, no stuffy waiters, no fine furniture, no fancy dishes you can't pronounce. No, just darn good food! Lilly's is a place where the folks... read more

We had a tasty lunch of pizza for four of us and a calzone for my youngest daughter. All the food was excellent and the craft beers were also great. Nice find. A huge variety of toppings to choose from.

First...do not miss having one of their salads. The croutons steal the show but salads are great Pizza is great. Thick crust which don't normally like but i will make an exception for this one. Ingredients excellent. Many variations and combos to explore. You stand in line to order and find a place to sit(hopefully.) Loud and active and busy....but... More

I don't know what do people complain about the waiting time. This is a good pizza, not you average neighborhood pizza place sooooooooooo you should expect more people to know about this fact. I remember a good pizza place in Key Biscayne, you should see the line of people at Sir Pizza. Raleigh is a small town and there are... More

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. Unlike many recent pizza experiences, the pizza... 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!
