Came late on the Sunday of a 3-day weekend and the place was pretty empty. Good specials on offer but we ordered from the menu and were happy with what we got. Mushroom pizza very good. Arugula salad particularly good because of wonderful lemon vinagrette. We were delighted it was so quiet but couldn't vouch for noisiness if the dining room had been full.

We are relatively new to the DMV area, and decided to try a new restaurant close to home. We booked the reservation based on the Open Table reviews, and we were thrilled with our choice. We are a family of foodies and almost never dine at national chain restaurants. This will become a new family favorite. Highly recommend Lias.

This restaurant is our favorite.... this year the server was terrible . Ignored us , never got bread until after apps were done and she only paid attention to the table behind us ! She only remembered us when it came time to pay the check .

Had a nice brunch with my husband and a friend at LIA's last Sunday. Nice, comfortable seating in the main dining room, quiet for nice conversation, very nice service and food was very tasty with generous portions.

The rating says it all. The service and food were outstanding g. We will return! Loved the rainbow trout that was cooked perfectly and my husband loved his rigatoni. Portions are generous.

Great food at a fair price, especially for their Sunset evening specials. Well worth it!
