My wife and I made a trip to Pittsburgh from Erie to visit the Strip District. Found out that Lydia had a restaurant there so made that part of the experience. We were able to get reservations for the Monday of our trip. We enjoyed...More

What a delicious meal! I started with the roasted beet and peach salad. It was outstanding! The bartender recommended the osso bucco, which I tried. Put the steak knife away! You can eat this tender delicacy with your fork! I saw the lasagna at the...More

My husband loved Lidia's show so we decided to get reservations when we were in Pittsburgh. The menu on the website didn't match what they actually had, which was a little disappointing. The drinks were okay. The octopus was delicious. Very tender and flavorful. The...More

Fresh food prepared daily. I had a lunch size pasta sampler. Freshly baked bread, along with crunchy breadsticks. Excellent Alfredo, marinara sauces and service.

I find it hard to believe that the co-owner of Del Posto has anything to do with this establishment--i wonder when her last site visit was to this venue. We had a 7 pm reservation, appetizers arrived at 7:52, entrees at 8:25 and the food--wow...More

I feel Lidia would be ashamed of this location. My mother loved Lidia, so I pushed my family to dine here. It was important to me. We dined here to celebrate a belated birthday for our brother-in-law. I didn't make a note on the reservation,...More

There for a while Lidia's Pittsburgh had lost its panache. We stopped going there because the food was rather average. Tonite we decided that we had a craving for the Lemon Chicken and gave it a try. We were very happy we did. New to...More

This place was quite a good value for the dining experience: great service and atmosphere, and a varied menu of Italian dishes, at a price that won't shock your wallet. The food wasn't original to the palate, but it was still quite yummy all the...More

Yes they have a wine list. I opted for prosecco, which was one of the things on that list. If you never tried it, it's a must.
