Good Northern Italian food – Good food, good service, good ambience and a most pleasant and helpful sommelier. Would recommend to anyone looking for Northern Italian food.
Not much for your money – Sunday Brunch? Not impressed at all. Food was OK, atmosphere was just OK, service was a little above average, but then again you are serving yourself for 3 of the 4 courses.....IF you count the small plate of bread on your table a course. The food looked like a picture out of a magazine but wasn't real tasty. Overall, not much for your money.........course I'm not a 'Jet Setter' so maybe it's what the younger crowd is looking for.
Great Franchise – Passing through Kansas City on my move from San Francisco to NY, I made sure I planned a stop at Lidia's. Well, I was not dissappointed. The lunch special (pasta sampler) was fantastic! The never ending servings of three different pastas, more than filled me up after my first week of driving! The lemonade was very tasty and the wine selection was great too! Having recently been to the Lidia's Pittsburgh, I can say that the franchise is a great one! The best deal is definitely the pasta sampler. Great place to have a great meal. The ambiance was very good too and I was there during lunch. I would imagine that it would be even better for dinner. The service was great too.
Too good to describe!! – I ate here on business with several people, we all needed seperate checks and the waitress was more than happy to assist!!! Now for the food - I had the lunch special which consisted of three freshly prepared pasta dishes, salad and bread! I cannot describe to you how good these were, all of 12.99!!! The lemonade was to die for and so were the desserts!!! You have definatly got to try this resturant!!
terrible – overrated, over priced, do not understand why some folks like this place.
Special Occassions & Dates – The atmosphere is great here. Love it when they use a old structure for a new purpose. The food is fantastic. If you love italian and want a real italian experience without visitng a chain restaurant this is the place.
wonderful – I came here on a visit to KC from Los Angeles last year and will definitely go back on my next visit. I thought the food was excellent, the wine list was very complimentary. I had the pasta trio tasting- very delicious. I thought the decor was very nice and was not overpriced for a nicer restaurant. Give it a try. No, it is not Bucca Di Beppo or some other cheap "italian" restaurant, so dont expect that. What you can expect is top quality food with beautiful decor. Great date spot
Hope you like waiting – If you don't mind waiting 45 minutes past your reservation to be seated, a small menu, and average food, this is the place for you. I'll probably give it another try, but with hesitation.
Modern upscale Italian restaurant housed in a 100 year-old freight house offers superior service and delectable dishes. – The Scene
A cathedral ceiling with extravagant chandeliers provides an aesthetic view for those seated in the main dining area. The polished staff, adorned in crisp white shirts and black slacks quickly tends to each table. Try one of Lidia's notable sparkling wines at the romantically lit bar, and enjoy the vision of a towering stone fireplace.
Well-presented meals doused in flavorful sauces and seasoning will have mouths watering for more. The popular pasta tasting sampler includes three daily-made pastas. Handmade ricotta and Swiss chard ravioli are the most savory, sauteed in delicious sage-infused butter. The spicy marinara, mozzarella and basil enhance the square spaghetti that will literally melt in your mouth. Seared scallops, tomato concasse and arugula pesto are tossed into gemelli, a milder, less seasoned braided pasta. Order the pollo con limone e olive and you might be pleasantly surprised with extremely tender chicken breasts surrounded with olives, capers and roasted lemons.
Wonderful! – Lidia's has great food served in a very trendy environment that is affordable.
I encourage everyone to try it. If you do not know what to have, try the Pasta Trio. Each day they feature three different types of pasta - usually something in a red sauce, something in a cream sauce, and something in a broth. This has been a favorite for my husband and me; and has never been a disappointment.
