Lots of menu choices for our two grandchildren. My only negative would be that there was a large line of people picking up food in the same line as people who were going to be dining in. Simple fix for this LIA’s.

We were seated promptly & served attentively with respect for the late arrival of 1 of our party & our need to leave on time to get our graduate to campus. When we realized we were running short on time we were able to take our desserts to go. Food was delicious. Nice atmosphere but not too formal. Uncrowded at that hour. Looked to be filling up when we left about 5pm. Since graduation didn’t let out until almost 9 we were happy we weren’t rushing to a late evening reservation. Everything worked out. Thank you!

Unfortunately it seemed like the kitchen and wait staff were unexpectedly slammed last night, and our server was out of sight for a lot of the dinner and we sat for long periods with nothing on the table. To be fair the manager came over and apologized for the slowness and comped our desserts- without us asking. I always love going here and we often order from here online. Hoping last night was just a one-off.

Quite raw which turned us off from eating. We settled on a shared pizza. Did not even comp us for anything which is the principle of it. Too bad since we walk to this restaurant frequently.

Had a nice vibe on the patio as we entered. We were seated in a banguette table with one of our party kinda stuck in the busy aisle thoroughfare. Meatballs app was good. That was the highlight. Rest of it was just meh. And service was sub-par. Rarely saw our waiter. Drinks on empty all evening. Asked person who delivered shared apps for some spoons to serve, never saw them. Plates for apps were tiny, like a saucer. Food was just plain and underwhelming. Sat with empty table forever before waiter showed up with dessert menus. By then, we were just sick of waiting and disappointed. We won’t be going back. I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and be patient,but no one really seemed to care if we had a good experience or not. There was nothing dramatic, it was just very unremarkable.

The meat had very little taste and there was much less cheese than I usually get, so the meal filled me up but didn't satisfy me. We waited a long time for service, tho the manager comped us for drinks, which was generous and appreciated. We understand the challenges restaurants have been facing these days and don't fault them for the delay. Our waitress seemed new and was fine. Maybe the restaurant was more crowded than usual. That said, we will certainly return, but I'll most likely order something else.

It was easy getting into Lia’s. We enjoyed all the items we ordered. To start we had the calamari which was lightly fried, not greasy and a nice portion. Two dipping sauces accompanied the calamari, the lemon aioli was nice a lemony and the marinara had a good tang. We had brunch so we ordered the mushroom truffle frittata and the Tomato, spinach and feta omelette. Both were served with a side salad either mixed greens or arugula. I do wish the arugula salad had some fresh shaved Parmesan. The omelette also came with crispy potato medallions. I wish the omelette would have used sun dried tomatoes instead of fresh as they made the omelette a little watery. But everything tasted very good. We also had dessert… two! The Limoncello tart with pistachio gelato was wonderful, the tart had a very light flakey crust and nice tart lemon custard and meringue. We also brought home the ricotta donuts with raspberry purée, had to have one before hand, it was light and warm. The raspberry was a nice compliment. Service was good, it was busy with inside and outside diners. We requested a window inside table and was seated in the bar area which was fine as long as there was a window, which there was. All in all a nice experience. We will be back!

While the service was ok, the food was not. We ordered risotto balls whose first ingredient on the menu is mozzarella, but we could not taste it. They were also cold, and did not taste right. We also ordered a carafe of cherry blossom sangria. It was so sweet and had no balance of flavor. It felt like we were drinking Welch’s grape juice. It seemed to have no alcohol either. The ingredients listed vodka, white wine, and orange liquor. My partner is a former bartender and noted to the server our thought to what he replied that the sweetness masked the alcohol. We drank the whole pitcher and I’m a light drinker. I did not feel anything. Dinner was also a disappointment. The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t LIAs. LIAs used to be the standard for comfort Italian food done extremely well. Not the case anymore. We gave feedback to the server without making much fuss. He offered no resolution except to say. “We hope you try us again”. With much regret, I write this; however I would not be able to recommend Lia’s anymore :( which is sad, as it is so close to our house.

The service was very good, out waiter brought everything quickly and was good at listening to specific requests we had, since we were celebrating a birthday. It’s a good place for a celebration, but not for a quiet night out. Also, there is no parking right next to the restaurant.
