Super flavorful. Well cooked. Had the calzones. The sauce is robust with lots of flavor. Filled with cheese. The calzone top is seasoned and the bottom is brown, not soggy at all. We'll be back!

I have mixed feelings about this place. I love the atmosphere of the place. The music, decor, and ambiance is on point for me. I also loved our waiter. The food, unfortunately, just wasn't good. There was just too much of some sort of spice in the pizza dough (I think it might be rosemary) that made it just 'off'... More

Went on a Saturday night at 6:30. Our waiter was very attentive, but not a pest. The restaurant was not overly busy...it picked up later in our meal but our waiter was still attentive. We had the Gus pizza (onions, mushrooms) and substituted the vegan cheese. The cheese was okay, probably would "cheat" and not sub the vegan cheese next... More

Durham has several really good pizza places, but this is our favorite. The pizza is just the best. They have plenty of unique toppings as well as the old faithfuls. We love the quirky Durham vibe and the food is always awesome!

We waited over an hour for our pizza. And it wasn't all that great. The crust is the sweeter/fluffy type that's not my preference, and the tomato sauce had a spice that's very off-putting to me, allspice I think? Our waiter was nice but was way overwhelmed, trying to serve and be the bartender on a Friday night. They really... More

Typical college pizza place -- good pizza, good drinks and even good service. Lots of different pizza options.

Initially, I returned because I enjoyed the pizza! Just my 3rd time visiting, it was a nightmare! The food was awful, the service was worse. We were seated by the guy whom i suppose was covering our seating area, whom also was covering the bar, and some of everything else so called. I watched all this transpire as the quote... More

Went to Lilly's with a group of visiting foreign students recently, and so had an opportunity to try several items on the menu... pizza, calzone, bread sticks, lasagna. Have also visited on previous occasions for pizza and baked pear salad. With only one exception (the much too sweet barbeque chicken pizza, whatever it's called, Inferno something I think) I can...

Casual dinner for beer and pizza, their beer list is good for regular and the craft beer drinkers. They have an amazing list of pizzas and you can build your own with what seems like an endless list of sauces, cheeses, toppings, and even the choice of gluten free. We had the "Super Duper" which a change up of cheeses... More
