We lived in DC when Chef Geof opened his first restaurant by that name. He offered good food. Lia's is one of several he has opened since. We were disappointed. By the food though the service was good.

Perfect stop for an outdoor Italian dining experience. Pasta dishes quite good with many freshly made noodle types from which to choose. Enjoyed dining outside and inside appeared to have nice ambiance.

Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff
