Lilia praise again


After a period of absence I returned and had dishes that are new at least to me. If possible the food is even better. The website does not list the dishes so my descriptions might be a bit off from the menu vocabulary.

Grilled Radicchio (?) with walnuts - simple bright with vinegar. Great start

Head on Shrimp with cracked coriander - only perfectly fresh shrimp cooked for the exactly right amount of time could be this sublime. HIgh wire no net success.

A pasta with chestnuts and caramelized onion - Could have eaten a mountain of this dish. Cream base a foundation for the sweetness of the chestnut and onion. A masterful sensual dish.

Swordfish with Peppers - The complexity of this dish is rarely seen (my me) outside of thai cooking. Do not miss it.


Going in early March for my birthday! It will be my first time. Any thing that I absolutely need to order or does the menu change so often that I should just get whatever looks best?


The menu changes slowly. I could easily recommend the meal I had, adding the Cacio e peppe. Any of the antipasti accept the gem salad and the artichoke have been just fine with me.In the small fish section the cured sardines are always a standout. The swordfish is my preference in the large fish (not so large really) section. The only meat I have had that is as great as the rest of the food for me is the chicken.


Will I be making a mistake if I skip some mains and double up on pasta?
