We were not impressed with Lidia’s. It was average at best. The price point was as high as it was to primarily pay for the rent.

Just like Lydia on TV. The food is delicious and filling. You can usually get a reservation. The three pastas are amazing.

This is a super nice place in the old freight house. Look at the menu before you go. It’s more Mediterranean Italian than old school, so a bit fancy. Great date place or spot for special occasion dining. The staff was great and the meal...More

Delicious food in a beautiful environment. The homemade pastas are all incredible and the steak is a large, mouth watering piece of beef. Love this place!

The Pasta alone is wonderful. The menu just gets better and better. Service is very friendly and efficient. I recommend a reservation but waiting for a table at the bar is a nice experience. Lidia's is a restaurant in the middle of the Freight House...More

I have watched Lidia cook on public access for a long time so I was excited to experience the restaurant finally. I’ve been to all the other restaurants in the Freight House and they are all unique and beautiful, with convenient access to Union Station/Crown...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.

Not, sure I would give them a call to see, but like others have said if you have time to go you should because the atmosphere there definitely adds to the experience of Lidia's food!
