We dropped in to try it out for the first time. It was a busy night but they managed to find us a place to sit. Service was good. Big portions of food. We were full when we left. My wife had chicken carbonara which was really good. I had the limonetta pasta (turns out I don't like capers but... More

Love, love and love. I ordered the chicken parm and hubby ordered the Meatball platter. From the apps we ordered to the main meal it was all so wonderful. Polite staff and great atmosphere. Will return.

We were warmly welcomed at LIE even without a reservation. The food was outstanding, servings were generous, and the service was personal and attentive. Would definitely visit again when next in Midland.

My husband and I went for dinner. He had the veal which was sourced locally and was very tender. I had the lamb - loved the "crusty" seasoning rub. I asked for mint sauce - waiter said they did not have any BUT when my meal arrived the chef had made some for me from scratch! now that is service.

Just had a family birthday dinner here this past weekend. Food was great. Service was good. Portions plentiful. Will definitely recommend and will definitely be back. Come with an appetite - leave satisfied. Well done.

Offers authentic Italian meals, but also has plates that are far from Italian. They seem or if place and aren't that good. They should concentrate on what they're good at - Italian food. And they're espresso machine has been broken on my last 2 visits, that were 9 months apart...get it fixed!

My wife & I were looking for somewhere for rustic Italian food. We found it at Lilly's! We shared a very tasty farmers platter, which was followed by a great chicken carbonara. Washed down with a nice glass of red wine, this was a fabulous meal. Enjoy!

We called in without a booking. The restaurant was full and we had to wait- but we are always happy to do this- popular means it is usually good. We were not disappointed. We got chatting with some other patrons whilst we waited at the bar and decided to have a table together which speeded things up for everyone. The... More

My eyes popped when I was brought this huge portion of chicken parmagiana.Not only big but delicious.The breading was light and crispy and the sauce very tasty.My girlfriend had the steak pasta which she loved and likened it to a thai dish.
