Wouldn’t recommend the lamb chops, and the mashed potatoes were lumpy. On the flip side, the lasagna was good. Overall, an average meal. Staff was pleasant.

Always delicious food, high quality ingredients. It's become a favorite (take out and outdoor seating). No matter what you are in the mood for, you will find a great option- salads, pasta, flatbread, entrees.

We went here for a date night. We had a great waiter who recommended several items to us. The food was very good and we got to sit inside which was nice on a chilly night although they do provide heaters outside. I recommend the Lobster Bisque. So good!

We brought my in-laws to lunch and they enjoyed getting out of the house safely to dine on the patio
It was half price bottle of wine and we all had crab cakes and hubs had crab Louis salad. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will bring them back again.

I have been to Livia many times. The food, the ambiance, the wait staff, all have been stellar. When all the stars align on those three factors, why go anywhere else? This is my friendly neighborhood go-to spot.

The food was very good and the portions were huge!! The price a bit high, but the portions off set that. The only complaint would be the tables outside were not at least 6 feet apart and many guests were allowed to enter without having a mask on. One of my sons told us after that he was very uncomfortable sitting that close and does not want to go back.
