Pretty disappointed in our visit. We have dined at the Livia in Geneva multiple times and really enjoyed our meals. We decided to try this location as we were in the area. The restaurant itself is very nice. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered the zucchini and mozzarella fritters for an appetizer to share. All we received was a lot of small pieces of cooked batter. There were only maybe two fritters in the appetizer and they were the size of a dime. We have ordered them at the Geneva location and know what they are supposed to look and taste like. Salads and soup were good. Filet medallions were supposed to be prepared medium and were actually rare. I could only eat a few bites of one of the medallions. Normally I would have asked the waiter if they could cook the medallions some more, but I wasn’t feeling well and we decided to leave. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will return to this location.

We had been waiting to try this place for a while and it did not disappoint. Food was great and even though there was a large birthday party going on one side of the dining room, our service was great and quick. I had the chicken Milanese and my fiancé had the lamb chops, we both were impressed. My fiancé’s only gripe was that they didn’t have Corona, (his fave anywhere we go) and he didn’t like the beer the waitress suggested instead, but not a big deal.

I met my date there for drinks and dinner. We sat in the bar area, was an excellent view of downtown Elmhurst. They have a full bar, and a wide variety of brands to choose from. We did order an appetizer, as well as dinner. The food came out in a timely fashion, looked very appealing, and tasted fresh. The bartender was a little bit busy,
So the service was a little bit slow, but not a problem because we were busy chatting away. The restaurant had a very nice modern Decour, yet still felt comfortable and cozy. This is an upscale Italian restaurant in downtown Elmhurst. There is easy parking close by.
Overall, a very nice restaurant and a great experience. We will certainly be going back.

First time eating there. It was delicious. The calamari appetizer is amazing. For the main entree I had the lasagne and my husband had the lobster and shrimp with pasta. We would both order these again.

Sergio (I believe that was his name) was our bartender as we sat there during happy hour. He was phenomenal, he made us aware of their happy hour deal going on. He was attentive and even asked when we were splitting things if we would like them physically split. Which was so considerate and appreciative. We will definitely be going back to sit at the bar with Sergio. Great happy hour deals and great food!

The service was good as usual, but the kitchen made numerous mistakes on very simple requests. They sent out pasta with no sauce and a plate drowning in pasta water. Very atypical for this usually phenomenal italian spot.

Excellent food. The veal meatball appetizer is fantastic. Every entree is perfectly prepared.
Friendly service. Just the right amount of attention, available but not intrusive.
We’ll be back.

Waitress did not bring bread. Had to ask. Had to keep reminding her I wanted glass of ice. Food my sister and brother in law had lamb chops. Everything on their plate cold. We went at 4pm no one there. How could food be cold. We took another couple out and it was a bad impression.

I was a bit disappointed this visit. We happened to get to the restaurant when it was still Happy Hour. A lot of confusion followed. The other couple with us were our guests there for the first time and the whole experience really fell flat. I’m not saying we won’t return but we won’t hurry back. Livia has some work to do in training their staff.

The service was excellent. The recommendations made by our wait staff person were spot on. With drinks the bill for four of us was just about right for a holiday lunch.

The only down check I give it, because I am hearing-impaired, is that is too ... darn ... loud. No soft surfaces I could see to mute the noise level. Perhaps that is what some people enjoy.

I just wish it had been quieter.

Not library quiet, but a noise level that doesn't challenge the noise level reduction feature of my hearing device so much.

We went here one time and really enjoyed it so we went back with the same six people and had a completely different experience. We asked to move our table which was too small for six and they said they would but never came back we had three different waiters over the course of the evening and at the end at 9:30 PM on a Saturday night had a waitress come over and basically let us know in no uncertain terms that it was time to leave because we were the last of two tables there. We were constantly missing utensils, plates and glasses as well. We will not be back

The beet salad was too notch. I'd love to get the recipe.
Service was excellent...Our waitress Susie was just the right combo of attentiveness and giving us time to leisurely enjoy our dinner.
The lasagna was very tasty too. We'll definitely come back.
PS The servings are large that I made meal of my leftovers.

Excellent food...
...the eggplant parm was perfectly crisped; the accompanying linguine pesto was fresh and bright; the tomato sauce had a good zing
...the chicken saltimbocca was a moist flavor bomb; the light broth-based sauce was a perfect foil for creamy mashed potatoes
...portion sizes just right for midday
Our servers Jasmine and Ray did their jobs well enough, though some coordination between expectations of diners and capabilities/limitation of the kitchen would be helpful. We were first told that our dessert choice was unavailable; then told the chef would do it. We reminded our server of our time constraint and were reassured it was no problem. We waited and waited and waited, finally insisting that we pay our bill. But the manager was needed to take the dessert off the bill. So we waited longer, until she came with the corrected bill AND the dessert in a carry out tin. We’ll be back but when we have more leisure to wait...

We love coming to Livia. When we are hungry but not enough for a whole meal we order the steak burger. It is out of this world and the potatoes yum. We usually split this meal. other times when we come to Livia every meal is delicious. I like trying their specials. This meal was sweet potato gnocci with a cream sauce. So, so good. The customer service from the time we walk in the door until we leave is supurb. Everyone smiles and makes us feel as though we are the most important guest they have. Thank you.

The food and ambience were great. However, between the loud conversations around us and the piped music, it was difficult to hear one another. we asked that the piped music volume be lowered; it was but minutes later it returned to its original volume, if not louder. Perhaps a week night might be better.

We came here tonight for Small Business Saturday. After trying to decide on something new to try, I settled (again) on the Lamb Gnocchi. Just trust me on this: it will be the most delicate gnocchi you’ve ever had. And the lamb is perfectly cooked with whatever veggies are in season. We’re trying our way through the appetizers list, and so far the Zucchini and Mozzerella is our favorite. Please, take some time to check it out and enjoy a night of good service and even better food.

If you walked into the restaurant, you would probably think it had just opened based on the level of service. The staff was either never trained or was trained poorly. The food was okay, but not out of the ordinary. The prices do not comport with the level of service. There are far too many good restaurants in the area to eat at Livia again.

Have eaten at this restaurant under former name, Café Amano, and enjoyed immensely. Have also done Happy Hour previously as Livia and highly recommend this. Was underwhelmed by service and food during this visit. Portion sizes were small, especially for the price. Could have eaten down the street for a better value. Disappointed that I could not give a higher rating overall but do have to recommend two desserts - the tiramisu and bread pudding were exceptional.

Went with a friend on a busy Friday night. The ambience and service were excellent. The restaurant was crowded but not full. I felt like the server was trying to rush us and turn the table. Other than that, the experience was quite enjoyable.

The food and service was outstanding but we were seated just outside the bar area and it was very noisy with the overflow of people waiting for seating at the bar standing nearby. We were initially shown a table for four in the bar area even though we had 7:00 pm dinner reservations to celebrate a special occasion.

We sat at a round table in the center of the room and we had to keep getting up on both sides to move our chair in so other people could walk by us. A lady in a stroller could not get by us nor could an elderly man that needed help walking. Also, the noise level was very high.
The service was slow and took them a couple of times to get our drink order right.
