Been many years since I was here. When I worked in Meriden, this was a good place for lunch. Anyhow, looking for something different, so decided I would try and introduce to my wife. As it has been many years, I was a bit concerned,...but we were seated somewhat quickly, and my wife was pleasantly surprised at the menu options. We went direct to ordering the main courses, and my wife decided on the eggplant parmigiana, but was concerned it might have the skin on. I went with lobster ravioli. After some time (not that long even though it was very busy), our dinners arrived. Side note, the bread for the table is excellent. My wife immediately checked for the skin, but not issue. Her first bite and she was amazed (her words). The sauce was excellent also. My lobster ravioli was perfect, with a great sauce. I finished the entire plate, as it was the best I have had I a while. (Helped I didn't each lunch) my wife was not able to finish as the portions are hugh, but she is looking forward to having the leftovers. Simply put, great food and we will be back. Adding to our list of restaurants we frequent.More

Excellent veal parmigiana! This was my wife's and I first visit and probably won't be out last. The meal was delicious and plentiful. I had to take half of my meal home. The service was a little slow but it could have been because of...a lack of wait staff.More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Boston for a second time and loved it! The food was good, with huge portions, even the lunch menu. The waitress even remembered that we had stopped here once before and what we ordered :) We...certainly will stop by again in the future!More

Very tasty pizza. I also like their cheese raviolis. We would order here for lunch from work. I need to try their special flavors. Good place to eat, all the other Italian Restaurants close by have closed.

Ate outside at Lido's Restaurant. Was a little disappointed that they didn't offer disposable paper menus and the busboy continually lifted up our glass to refill it with water. Would suggest more training! The food was very tasty and overall a nice experience.

There is not a whole lot of restaurants in these parts. But.... decided to stop in and order a take out pizza. Social distancing at its finest! Must have a mask on which I like and customers must be 6 feet or more from each...other when coming in or exiting with that said I ordered a thin crust vegetarian pizza heavy sauce light cheese and I have to tell you I have never had better pizza! It had a ton of veggies on it which I love sauce was delicious everything was on point if you happen to stop by this area or drive through the area go out of your way and check out their restaurant!More

This restaurant is just off a main road, and I’m not crazy about the parking lot, but the food is delicious. Inside, the restaurant is attractive and comfortable, and the service is excellent!

Plentiful Italian fare, menu varies from pizzas to pastas, chicken dishes, salads. Family friendly place with plenty of children at big tables. Service was fast and friendly. Parking is very limited but there’s another lot up the hill.
