Lia’s was once our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Unfortunately, it has been on a slow but steady decline. We had brunch there a few hours ago and realized the restaurant has almost hit rock bottom. Brunch is not a challenging meal. Lia’s failed on all fronts....More

Indoor and outdoor seating available. Mozzarella balls are excellent as an appetizer. The Hawaiian pizza was very good and had jalapeño on it which was a nice little twist. There was a very good beer selection as well.

Fantastic blend of meat makes their gorgonzola burger one of the best I have had in the Washington, DC area. And nice that Lia’s offers greens with it instead of fries. Half price every weekday happy hours. Don’t miss this jewel.

We ate in the bar and enjoyed what we ordered. This is a good place to go to eat good bar food, wine and/or beer and be able to watch the games on the TV.

Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff
