fabulous all around, but we almost couldn't eat it all. We took the suggestion of the waiter and had their Tuscan Grill special which had many courses: the Antipasti was Arancini with Roasted tomato and fresh mozzarella. it was great but there were two and one would have been fine since it was a bit heavy. The pasta course was a sampling of three of their fresh made pastas, beef short rib ravioli with rosemary infused sauce, Tagliatelle with Zucchini, corn and shrimp and Cavatappi with uncooked heirloom tomato sauce. my favorite was the Tagliatelle which was like a thinner fettucini, then you had your choice of a meat entrée. I got the Spiedini of Chicken and Luganega Sausage, summer vegetable and Cous Cous salad - couldn't eat it all and my husband got Duck Breast, grilled corn and figs with balsamic drizzle. he was being adventurous with the duck but found he still really isn't wild about duck, then there was a nice blackberry tarlet with blackberry sorbetto which was just the right size and wonderful with coffee. Definitely will return!

Lidia's has very large portions of well-prepared pasta. I would really like to see more vegetables sides, in addition to the pasta meals. The meal starts with humus & bread brought to your table. There is no kids' menu, but they will prepare a 1/2 portion of a meal or just noodles with a sauce or butter. (The noodles are really enough for 2 kids to share.) The pasta trio is a popular choice. It is served from the hot pan at your table, & you get unlimited refills.

I go to Lidia's often - for drinks, dinner, brunch - any time is a good time to eat there. Their food is consistently high quality and their service timely and helpful, yet unobtrusive. My husband goes there for the octopus, I go there for the Osso Bucco. Never a bad meal!

Six girls from high school (several decades prior) out on the town for an evening of dining and fun, and catching up. This is a great combination for Lydia's Kansas City restaurant. Atmosphere, food and drinks are top notch! We couldn't have had our mini-reunion in a better place, as it was filled with guests out having similar gatherings as we were. The food is beyond excellent, and the service is 5 star all the way. Do yourself a favor and experience Lydia's Kansas City restaurant for yourself as a special treat.
