Lidia’s Pittsburgh opened in March of 2001, only two years after Lidia Bastianich and her son Joseph Bastianich opened the popular Lidia’s Kansas City, their first venture outside of Manhattan.

Lidia’s Pittsburgh menu concept is a combination of the New York restaurants, Felidia and Becco.

Lidia's is located downtown in the strip district near the Heinz History Center, Benedum Center, Heinz Hall, Byham Theater, PNC Park, and PPG Paints Arena so it's the perfect place to enjoy a great meal before your event.

The menu features a daily pasta tasting, with homemade pastas that incorporate the season's freshest ingredients in addition to hearty Italian favorites such as the osso bucco, a braised heritage pork shank with barley risotto, the scallopine of chicken breast with roasted lemon, capers, and olives, and grilled salmon filet with seasonal contorni.

    Lidia's was CLOSED!!!! We were taking a friend who watched Lidia's show for her birthday. What a dissappointment. Should have received some notice so we could have made alternate plan.

    Despite a reminder from OpenTable the day before my reservation, I showed up at Lidia's Pittsburgh to find it had been closed. When I inquired of OpenTable how that could have happened, I was informed that Lidia's was no longer on your reservation network. Yet, I just received this request to review the restaurant. So it would appear that Lidia's is still on your system. Perhaps OpenTable could do a better job of updating it's restaurant listings to prevent its customers from showing up at closed restaurants.

    We went for Sunday brunch, not realizing it was the last day the restaurant would be open. We got there for an eleven AM reservation, just as it was opening. The usual dips or bread baskets weren't on the tables until we were ready to leave. The appetizer table was filled one item at at time, over about a half hour. One of the people delivering food to that table was having a major anger management issue, which wasn't dealt with by anyone. The pasta trio wasn't ready until about a half hour after we ordered. Lidia's has always been very good to excellent, so it was a major disappointment that on its last day of service, it wasn't. It's not the way I wanted to remember it.

    It took almost 40 minutes to get our entree which was salmon for my friend and me. Although there was an apology, there was no attempt at service recovery-with offering a complimentary glass of wine or dessert. I realize that the restaurant is closing, but think that Lidia would like to maintain her brand, especially if she opens elsewhere in Pittsburgh. In the past, i have had good experiences at this restaurant, but last evening was a disappointment.

    Very disappointed that when we arrived at the restaurant we were told that they were closing that location in 6 days (end of August) and that is why the menu was very limited and nothing near what was posted on the website. There was no notice on the building or the entrance to the restaurant that this location was closing. Not even a statement on the website. Staff were extremely professional throughout our dinner and our waitress had worked there for 14 years and came back out of loyalty as they were short staffed for the remaining days they were open. The food was excellent but the evening was disappointing knowing that Lidia's was closing.

    I'm sorry to see the restaurant leave the area. It was one of our favorites. Loved everything on the menu.

    Not happy - OpenTable took and confirmed the reservation but when I arrived the restaurant was locked - not open. Posted hours on the door did not match those on OpenTable. Also, hours of operation on phone recording did not match either those posted or those hours shown on OpenTable. Furthermore, I received an email from Open Table asking why I didn’t show up for the reservation!
