“Lower Your Expectations!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Yep, lower your expectations before going here and you might be okay. The service was slowwwww as was our food. And our food arrived cold. Not exactly a winning combination. Add to this, they keep weird hours. Half the time we go by - they're closed!

“Pizza with homemade sausage YUM!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Homemade sausage pizza was excellent! The $2.50 Margarita was AMAZING! Best drink at a beach - EVER. The service was great and the decor very nice. One side had glass windows facing the sandy beach on the sound the other side was a dark intimate bar with good music. Unusual to find something like this at the beach. I will return.

“italian menu, american interior!”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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!
