Lidia s is an exceptional restaurant. Northern Italian cuisine is their specialty, offering delicious authentic recipes. We enjoyed our experience very much, and look forward to returning. Hospitality, service and food made our visit quite memorable. These folks know what they are doing, and they do it well!
Had our anniversary dinner on July 29th....our 4th time at Lidia s KC. Again, a massive disappointment.....not the food by any means but the seating was terrible and the noise level unprecedented. I wish Lidia would focus more on comfort, taste as opposed to high density seating and the constant rush the staff is under......we wanted a relax and peaceful dinner....oh well, we never relaxed and were seating in what appeared to be a high traffic area, with constant flow of severs, table cleaners, customers ......even tables and chairs being moved around.....hard to believe! Total bust of an evening. Hope the Management takes a good look at the situation and rethink what Lidia should be all about.....please make it a classy place, not a fast food paced Italian cafeteria. Life is too short to worry just about squeezing customers and maximizing earnings. Some of us search for quality, serenity and ambiance.
My girlfriend and I go to Lidia's for their Sunday Brunch whenever she is in town. We both love the variety of pastas, salads, breads, and deserts. Our favorite main coarse is the steak cooked with an anchovy wrap. The chicken coarses are always good.
I went to Lidias on the 14th of October and it was a planned trip from my grandson who knows how much I admire lidia and her cooking shows.He was so exited to take me there he came with me even though he was sick with a virus. We ordered apertizers and they were not bad Octopus could have been cooked more and with more taste. We had Calamari and and some sort of fritata.We ordered the pasta special and When the raviloi came it was in a watery sauce and then the meat pasta arirved in clumps and was dried out dried out to the point that you could choke.The Squash Pasta was tasteless.My Son did tell the waiter that his pasta was not eatible he brough him pasta with marinara sauce and that too was terrible.When he saw that I did not eat my pasta he did not inquire as to why.
I have seen Lidia cook these pastas on television and they looked wonderful.
I did speak to the manager and made this complaint . He tried to fix the wrong that had been done to us byt refunding half the money we paid, and offering to have us sit at his table if we returned.
I am just so turned off . I told my children we shoudl have gone to Olive Garden I have never been unhappy with their food.I don't hold it as high as I did Lidias so I don't get disapointed.
I am so sorry I chose Lidias I did not want to get dissapointed
we have been going to Lidia's for many years. It has really progressively gone down hill. I always get the pasta sampler and the last few times the pasta is dry with hardly any sauce. It was a special place for us but we are thinking that we might not go back. Really sad for us because a few years ago, they were great
I agree with some of the other reviews. It was mediocre, not astounding, and for that price it should have been knocking me out of my seat!!!
Food was too salty and not that flavorful. I got the salmon and the only good thing about it was the potatoes it was served with. Just not that interesting. Also there were not that many vegetarian options. I was expecting a lot because I like Lidia's show. Didn't live up to my expectations!
I've been here a couple of times (but not recently) and by far, my favorite dish is the duck gnocchi. I tried this after someone personally recommended it. If you don't see in on the menu, ask for it. I did once and it was available. It is so rich and flavorful. Especially satisfying dish in the fall and winter. The portion at first glance seems small, but after a few bites you realize it's quite filling. One of my favorites dishes at any KC restaurant I've had. The caesar salad is also nice. The pasta sampler is good, but not great. And I love the way my clothes smell after a visit there when the wood-burning fireplace is lit. The restaurant is very pretty and I love that the Crossroads and downtown areas have seen such renovations.
They had neat lights that looked like balloons, but were dusty. The food was stanky and I could harldy swollow mine down. I was hungry too cuz I hadn't ate all day. Our wait-lady was pretty and seemed to be in a happy mood, but the food she brought us was just nasty and we ordered what seemed like it would be the best thing on the menu. I don't recommend this place unless you like gross food.
