Amazing atmosphere, with its “vintage-modern” decor, and restored historic structure. Great food, especially the pasta selection. Service was friendly and attentive, and the street side city views added to a cozy, yet dynamic, experience in all.

Exceptional food with a high end price. Ambiance is terrific even though the restaurant is very loud. Wait staff was below average, considering the price point of this restaurant.
Fix the wait staff and Lazia is a top 10 restaurant in Kansas City.

Food is very good. Three of us shared the chicken and it was a good choice. Our server was not very well informed. Not sure if she was new or could not hear. The noise level was high

We (my wife & I) are eager eaters, but the entrees were super-sized. We could have easily split one. The charcuterie was excellent.

Our party of 6 enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Saturday evening. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. I would say the pasta dishes are small for the price but everything was delicious.

My husband and I loved the decor and atmosphere of Lazia. Then after dinner we were encouraged to go to the rooftop Beer Garden, even though we don’t drink. It was a beautiful evening. We enjoyed the setting and openness of the rooftop area. I definitely recommend Lazia and will be returning.

The noise level is awful they put the 7 of us in what was an old vault that is covered in white tile and reverberates so horribly we
Couldn’t hear each other! They need to put fabric over the tile to make the noise level reduced.
It’s a good looking space but our service was spotty and food fair. Noise ruined the experience as well
As the clautrophobic tiled vault we were put in!!!

Waitress was horrible. We asked about a food item for an appetizer because we were considering ordering it and she responded “yeah it’s good” and then walked away before we could order. Later on when we got our food she didn’t come to check on how everything was. We had to track her down to ask for crushed red pepper and parmesan, by the time she got back with it we were almost completely done with our food. The food was delicious but very disappointed by the service

Small venue that has a good atmosphere. I would recommend requesting a table on the perimeter as the tables in the center are extremely close together. Server was very knowledgeable but service for drinks was slow.

Admittedly we were the last reservation, but they made sure we knew that. We felt a bit rushed and we could tell they wanted to go home. I own a wonderful restaurant in St. Louis and frankly if you're the last reservation you should still feel like you're the first. The pasta was over worked and way too thick, but the many other dishes we ordered were very good. It was quite loud however, with drunken bros shouting each other as if they were deaf. It dampened the experience. A lovely interior rivalling some of the best restaurants, but the desire to have candles heaping an appalling amount of wax may seem like angood idea, but it seemed gimmicky, dirty and unkempt. I like distressed and shabby chic in the correct context, but it was frankly off putting. That said definitely worth a try and my personal preferences my not be yours. In any event unique and worth while.

This was our third visit to Lazia. We got a great table by the window, however, our spaghetti carbonara had way too much sauce on it and our waiter, while pleasant, was slow and inattentive.

The restaurant didn’t seem busy but our waitress didn’t seem to check on us very often.

It wasn’t band until my wife spotted a little green worm crawling on my “farm fresh” greens! The staff told me more than once “well at least you know it’s fresh”. I also know you’re not properly cleaning your produce. In the end they comped just the bug meal not the bill.

Lazia was amazing. I celebrated a once in a life time anniversary here that my husband and I will never forget! Our server, Lindsey, was right on board with me-making sure our evening went perfectly and flowed smoothly. They played into my cheesy ways to surprise my husband and I felt their genuine excitement for us. Their food recommendations were on point and my husband and i could not get over how amazing the food was. We eat great food often and we were blown away. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our night successful!! We highly recommended them to everyone.

Beautiful room but my pasta was inedible — great pasta noodles, terrific homemade ricotta cheese, but tomato sauce was terribly over spiced. All 6 at our table agreed it was way too hot.
Noise level needs attention. If that is addressed we will come back for a second try.

The cool prohibition style ambiance is excellent. Service was very good but when it’s busy the smaller tables get a bit neglected. Food- a bit disappointing. Filet had a simple salt pepper rub. Grouper was extremely bland and unusually paired with apples. Hamachi crudo lacked tenderness. Pork rind chips pairing for the crudo didn’t seem to compliment. Atmosphere is spot on. Outside bar scene is happening. Next time we may try happy hour with snacks at the bar.

For our anniversary we went to the bar upstairs for a drink and beautiful view of KC with the young hip crowd then went to Lazia for a wonderful dinner. We were greeted with a bubbly celebratory beverage. We enjoyed the burrata and warm bread and the filet was prepared just perfect with yummy flavor Loved the ambiance with the drippy candles too.
