“Our new favorite breakfast spot.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We decided to give Livia's Dish a try when our usual breakfast choices were full to overflowing.

Damned glad we did.

The former Bamboo Hut/Pho 2000 is now a comfortable restaurant owned and operated by a hard-working Albanian couple (Livia is their younger daughter) that serves wonderful food at reasonable prices.

Their delicious paninis are made on fresh homemade bread, their omelettes are amazing and their waffles are to die for. (OK, so I like the place.)

Add Livia's Table to your list of "must-try" restaurants should you find yourself in Worcester.

You won't regret the visit.

“Outstanding lunch in a friendly setting”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had the good fortune of trying Livia's Dish for lunch on Saturday and could not recommend it more highly for lunch in Worcester. The staff was friendly, welcoming and attentive. We could order from the breakfast or lunch menus, both of which contained many tempting options. They make wonderful paninis on very fresh bread. The ingedients were fresh and the taste outstanding. For the more health conscious, you could substitute salad for fries, although we agreed that the home made fries were very good. My wife had an omellete that she really enjoyed as well. Don't leave without having their signature dessert of skewers of fresh strawberries with chocolate. We definitely will return to try it for dinner.

“New Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If you're in the Worcester area and looking for a cozy and delicious place to eat check out Livia's Dish. Not too far from the center, this place offers a wonderful lunch menu. All the ingredients are fresh and artfully combined. We had the chicken and Tuscan stake panini and grilled vegetable salad; everything was delicious, extremley fresh and the quality of ingredients really comes through. If you love Mediterranean food make an effort to stop there if you're nearby.
The prices are also very reasonable if not low for the quality of food Livia's dish offers. Overall a great experience.

“Hoping for better”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went to Livia's for breakfast after reading about it in the T and G. Both my husband and I ordered the breakfast buffet. The omelet station made omelets to order--very good. The rest was either cold or undercooked. Had to ask them to bring out more fruit as the dish was empty. Had to make your own toast, which is ok, I guess, but only one 2 slice toaster. The service was poor. Had to ask for sugar, syrup and silverware. The omelet maker had to clear the plates to allow for room on the table when he brought the omelet over. We were asked, by the owner, I believe, how everything was. I told her that the food (french toast, pancakes, waffles) were minimally warm. She came back to the table with our check for $28 for two and said that she checked and her staff said the food was hot! Unbelievable, they didn't eat it and it was cold!! Probably won't give it a second chance. Too bad, as we like to support local businesses. You only get one chance to make a first impression!
