“Growing up, food was always part of a larger familial celebration, part of coming together at the table. The food was approachable, not overly thought out … But it had a sophistication that belied the careful selection of ingredients and my Nonna Anna Paola’s sincere love for her family, her guests. That’s what I try to recreate when I cook.”
-Chef Edward

At The Lively, we draw inspiration from the bounty of the region. Every facet of our culinary offering has been curated to bring you a unique experience.

No detail is too small. That philosophy carries through from the menu to the interior of the restaurant. The art, finishes, and furnishings are all intentional.

Our aim is simple and true: to welcome you with graceful, genuine hospitality into our home. As such, we have created a warm and familiar space into which we hope to invite you again and again to eat, drink, and be lively.
