“italian menu, american interior!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This place has the interior of some of the restaurants you’ll see in Gordon Ramsey shows. But hey, it can’t all be that bad? Lillo has a small menu to choose from, which is usually a good thing. Well, we’re still not sure if this is the case at Lillo’s. But perhaps we’d expected too much. We both had a 10” thin crusted pizza. A good choice, since we’d seen the pasta plates which had too much meat on them. The pizza was hot and tasteful. Although the different flavors were a bit over run by the taste of salt, it was a decent pizza. The staff was very friendly. Even during the power out – there was a tropical storm at that time - there was time for a laugh and a joke. Referring to Gordon Ramsey again, the ambiance was not at all Italian. But the menu is! And this place is definitely worth a try when in Pensacola Beach.

“Don't let the outside fool you....excellent restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This place does not look like much from the outside, but once inside, you will see the difference! Great ambience and wonderful staff. Our server Nick greeted us at the door, seated us at a wonderful table on the dining room side near the live musician, but not too close. The food was all reasonably priced and very large portions. Good selection of wines as well. Nick was very attentive, brought fresh cutlery and extra napkins between the salad and the main course, and was always stopping by to make sure we didn't need anything else. The live jazz-style musician was a nice unexpected touch. Would highly recommend this excellent restaurant to anyone in the area and would definitely go back again!

“Nothing to brag about....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Besides the chocolate martinis nothing much else to brag about. The food was average....I had the lasagna and it was pretty much just meat and noodles. Not much flavor. Slow service also.

“There's nothing Tuscan about Lillo's Tuscan Grill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Everything we ordered was served to us late and served cold. What is it that we're really paying for???
