This is a neighborhood pizza place run by the nicest couple Lillian and her husband. It is the place Ray Romano grew up going to. The thing I like about this place is the pizza is so good - great crust - always hot - good service and has a real New York neighborhood feel ..

Delicious pizza. Every time I return to Forest Hills I make it a point to grab a slice. Some of the best pizza in NY, period.

The best pizza in NYC. I have lived in the area for over 30 years and we first discovered Lillian's about 2 years ago. Wish I had discovered Lillian's sooner. Visit Lillian's and read the reviews on the walls. You'll learn that Ray Romano the actor, grew up a few blocks from Lillian's and has been coming here since he... More

Absolutely delicious thin crust pizza. By far the best in Queens, maybe in NY. Great ices in the summer too. Will definitely return.

Be wary- carryout & eat-in only. No Delivery. But totally worth it! Lillians is a Forest Hills staple- very authentic pizza joint. Sooo Tasty!! Eat-in is very casual.

This is the epitome of the New York slice. If you are visiting or find yourself in the area, this is as good as any representation of what people rave about when talking about New York pizza. You can't go wrong.

Lillian's is small restaurant that makes delicious pizza, eggplant and garlic knots. Need I say more... Lillian and her husband are genuine. You can feel the love in each bite. I went with my daughter when school was letting out and you could see every table full of families. It had a real neighborhood feel with everyone greeting eachother. Lillian's... More

Tony's been a little ornery for decades now. Rebuilt after 2 fires over the years but never put in a bathroom for his customers. Was with friends and our kids all <5 at the time last summer, a kid had the sudden urge to pee and he refused us the back bathroom. I understand not wanting customers to use it... More
