Maybe 15 is too much for an individual pizza. But it has the original good Italian taste! I loved it!

Let me start with the best part--the food. The pizza was OK; nothing I'd go out of my way to get, but eatable. There are other mellower pizza places I prefer within a reasonable distance, though, so the pizza won't get me back. The salad was probably the best food. We both had side salads to go with our slice... More

Pizza was loaded with toppings. Sauce was not the usual pizzeria style, had a nice flavor. Lilly's is definitely a keeper.

I was in the area on business and heard the locals talking about Lilly's. Let me say, I have 2 kids and my share of pizza in my day. This place is the pie in the sky! Ranks way above any competition. If you have not tried it yet, put it on your bucket list. My mouth was watering from... More

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.
