The restaurant is small but inviting. We went on a Sunday evening and it quickly filled up. The waitress was very attentive and provided good suggestions on menu items. We all had some type of pasta and it was all very good. The portions were generous without being overwhelming. We did have desert and the Lemoncello cake was awesome.

A quiet Italian restaurant and bar. I had a delicious meal and glass of red wine. So good! Service and atmosphere were great, too. It was nice to eat in a quiet restaurant for a change.

Lillie's has an intimate feeling with soft background music where quiet conversations can take place over a exquisite meal.

Nice restaurant, not a typical breakfast restaurant. The food is very good. I had eggs benediction with salmon with avocado. The eggs were spot on. The fresh fruit was nice too.

Lillies is a neighborhood restaurant I've been wanting to try for a while so finally had the opportunity to go for Sunday brunch. The place is conveniently located just south of the zoo but not necessarily popular with the zoo crowd. At 11 am it was not busy but filled up around 12:30 with couples and small parties of 3-4...

Nice place to stop on the way to or from the zoo. Can get lunch for less than $20. The fish and chips plate was good although the fries weren't homemade.

Found along the way when leaving the Zoo. Service was good and so was the food. We go the lunch special The Italian Panini with a side salad and it was very good.

Great alternative to fast food at the zoo. Only a two minute walk from Connecticut ave entrance. Great sandwiches and soup for lunch. Reasonably priced for D.C. Kid friendly.
