Livia’s Dish is a great little find tucked away down on Main street, past Webster Square. Their hours are little odd, they don’t serve dinner on Sunday, Monday or Tuesdays, but they do serve breakfast and lunch every day. The prices are reasonable with a nice selection of Italian/Mediterranean based cuisine and the staff was both friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu.
Their twist on bread with dinner is toasted crusty bread with hummus. The bread had a great crunch but still had a nice soft center and the house made hummus was excellent.
For dinner I had the Chicken Vegetable Stack, which was grilled chicken layered with zucchini, squash, tomatoes and eggplant, topped with a lemony sauce and some pecorino cheese. I had this with a side of mixed vegetables, zucchini, squash and carrots. The presentation of this dish is excellent, the layering showing off the different colors nicely. The sauce was light and lemony and thick enough to stick to the food but not so thick it overpowered. The chicken was grilled perfectly, juicy and tender and the vegetables were also cooked perfectly, keeping enough texture to stand up to the chicken while not being undercooked. Everything tasted great individually and really worked together nicely. The portion size was excellent. Enough to be filling but not so much to leave you over stuffed, overall a great value for an excellent meal.
