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.

We dropped by Lilly's last night - nice atmosphere and great food. The appetizers were large and the entrees large. All food was fresh and fantastic. The staff were friendly. If you are in the mood for good Italian food in Midland, definitely try it out. We will be adding this restaurant to our list of favourite local restaurants.

We were told that reservations were required, that the people would be coming in soon We saw nothing on their website that reservations were required.. We arrived on a motorcycle and felt that we were immediately dismissed and not wanted.

A favorite in the Midland area and a typical gathering spot for our family celebrations. Extensive menu with excellent pastas, but the steaks and seafood are equally of renown. Excellent concierge but larger parties will wait longer for their meals so that the chefs can coordinate the timing of service. Reservations are recommended but not necessary. You will not believe...
