We hadn't been back to L.May for too long, so decided to head down for the Sunday night pizza special. SOOOO glad we did. Seriously, this the best pizza in town and the best crust east of NYC! We were able to get Denise as our server, had a great table by the window and got $10 off a bottle of our favorite Argentine Malbec. This place is a Dubuque treasure and Denise is in my top 3 best servers of all time.

We've been to L. May twice now and love it. It was recommended by a friend of ours, and he was absolutely spot on! The food is fantastic and we love the atmosphere. We've had the Osso Buco and the FIlet Mignon on one occasion and the the L.May supreme pizza and Bacon Crab Mac-n-Cheese pizza on another occasion. Absolutely fabulous! The red sangria is spectacular too as in the beer and wine selection. The staff couldn't be nicer. Egay and Nicole are fantastic hosts and we love that they have a picture of Lilly May on the wall, (hence the restaurant name). Classy lady for sure. Tammy was bartending the second time we were in and she was great. Nina was our waitress and she was one of the best waitstaff people we've ever encountered. All in all, this is our new favorite Friday night spot.

Excellent choice of world class beer and wine selections, fantastic new menu items, pizza favorites and outstanding service with right amount of attention. Atmosphere similar to several of the local high venues, but with better prices and service. As a weekly customer we appreciate all aspects, but turnover and schedules keep the rotation changing and never get recognized as a regular.
