The first time I ever ate here was probably 20 years ago and thought then it was really good. This last time (yesterday) I found that the place is now rather ordinary. Our waiter was attentive and seem to know the menu well. My wife...More

I love taking people to Lidia's and ordering the pasta tour which brings several different types of pasta to the table by roving staff members. The food is always amazing and the novelty is fun without landing in a "throwed rolls" type environment.

Went for dinner at Lidia’s and it did not disappoint. Service was great and the food was amazing. Not terribly expensive, and definitely worth it.

Came here because we love her show on PBS and it’s right by our B&B. Presentation is very good, food is excellent, wait staff are attentive. It was super hot outside and super cold inside which made for a slightly uncomfortable dinner, plus my water...More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I ever ate in. They do have the traditional heavy tables with white table clothes. Tables are close together, so plan to talk with your fellow diners. The Cesar salad was amazing. My Sunday night special was...More

Had the 3 pastas, the pesto was good, the ravioli/pasta/ricotta was very tasty but way over-cooked and the meat sauce was way too greasy! The service was not good, the server was not good at her job and my children treat me and I must...More

Around 30 min to MCI. I don't know if there's a Sunday brunch but would make a reservation and give yourself a couple of hours to be at Lydia"s. Their service is very slow.
