My daughter took me to this delightful little pizza place!! Everything is natural, homemade, nothing artificial..in other words, it is healthy!! We had a pizza that had fresh mozzarella, red sauce, fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, etc....it was wonderful! I highly recommend you give this place a try, if you haven't already. You will not regret it. The place was packed...a... More

This is our favorite pizza in NC! Delicious unique crust, great sauce, high quality fresh ingredients! I love their house salad with their lemon tahini dressing and my husband loves their ranch dressing. They make all of the dressings homemade. We love the food here!

The food is great due to quality ingredients. The meat lasagna and pizza are great. We also found the salads were excellent. Our service was good, not great. You order at the counter, and they bring the order to the table. Don't look for table side follow-up service. If you need a drink refill go to the counter. Yes, the... More

I have been a Lilly's patron for decades, literally. It has always been "cute" and kinda of a joke lack of attention to customer service. Tonight it got to just intolerable. It's really ridiculous. Too bad because the food is good but they clearly do not give a flip.

Parking was a little difficult, but the Pizza was excellent. Several great choices, and the crust was so good. Dinning in is loud, but we could still hear the conversation. Rustic and youthful environment. Ordered at the bar and the pizza was ready in twenty. I'll be back!

You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Pizza's are incredible but their salads and wings are fantastic as well. Fun atmosphere and excellent craft beer selection.

The atmosphere is just ok. Needs work. They play loud music so you can't hear yourself think let alone have a conversation. We were there on a Friday and the were grilling onions the whole time we were there. The place was full of smoke and my eyes were burning. The pizza is just ok. The salads are better. If... More

We've been pretty loyal Lilly's folks for a long time, since it's in the neighborhood. The pizza is always top notch, but to put it mildly, you have to be EXTREMELY patient. Since it's so close, we usually call in our order and go pick it up. Last night (a Saturday) I called in our order (1 large Tobacco Stack),... More

Lilly's is an eclectic space with terrible parking but great food and funky atmosphere. Our favorite is a large pizza with extra cheese, black olives, meatballs, and tomatoes. Not sure what they put in the crust but it is much different than the chain restaurants and oh so delicious. Add a house salad and you are all set.

Lilly's is truly a unique experience like other reviewers have mentioned! The decor in the restaurant is very bizarre, and you will wait almost an hour for your pizza even if it isn't busy, however, the pizza is incredible! If you don't mind the atmosphere (some decor may be offensive for people with children) and waiting a long time then... More
