If the seating had not been so horribly cramped, it would have been perfect. Spaghetti with veal meatballs with fresh basil was a bit of heaven.
Great fun! Mimosas were delicious! Everyone at the table enjoyed their food!
Great food. Great service. Great neighborhood. And right near subway.
Delicious, lively (but not loud), impeccable service. Top notch!
A Neighborhood Gem that Still Sparkles
Although I failed to change the default table for two, to a table for three when making our reservation, we were graciously accommodated at a comfortable table. We started with all the (delicious, of course) fried primi: calamari, polenta sticks and cod fritters. Great pasta (gnocchi, spaghetti & veal meatballs) and salad (arugula with shrimp) left no space for secondi, but we were happy to have squeezed in our divine desserts: gelato, budino and a chestnut special.
Lido is my go to place for special occasions and celebrations in my neighborhood. This visit, the staff was so wonderful in helping me plan a special surprise for my brother and sister-in-law who were married the night before! I brought a cake and a special decoration to the restaurant prior to our reservation. They added a candle to the cake, added the decoration and brought it to our table - such a happy surprise for the newlyweds. I love this place ... for a Peroni and meatballs at the bar after work or a gathering of friends. The food never disappoints and the waitstaff, bartenders and managers are always concerned for your comfort and satisfaction.
Lido is always great - on many levels. The food is superb, the staff is efficient and courteous and the ambiance is comfortable New York.
Bottomless mimosas live up to their name! Come prepared.
This place is always great. The food here is amazing.
Very nice place. We enjoyed the place and the food.
