Family friendly style was Ilija's style made to order for our small group with reasonable prices. So sad they had to close as this was truly one of those hidden neighborhood gems. Still dreaming of their braised lamb. Bye. You've been missed.

The walls of this establishment are embellished with a host of Serbian art, artifacts and nostagia. One gets a wonderful feel of the history of Serbia: their colorful culture and pride. The owners are warm, friendly, and extremely accommodating. This is a typical family enterprise,...More

This was a surprise that was just delightful. The people are great and so is the food. You really can't beat the ethnic flavor and the warmth with which you are treated. The Serbian Tea (tea with honey and plum brandy with some spices) is...More
