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.
Happy Hour: Monday-Friday 4:30pm-6:30pm
The seasonal private dining menus capture the warmth of Lidia’s cuisine, evoking an authentic Italian meal in a lovely environment. Italian favorites are highlights of our three to four course dinner options along with our antipasti rustic buffet settings.View Private Dining Details
Excellent food, great service. The birthday gift dessert was very enjoyable.
We were in Pittsburgh and love going to Lidia's. The trio pasta was disappointing from previous visits, but the lasagna and tiramisu were delicious. Our service from Lori was superb.
Everything was very good. Tasting menu was three very interesting pasta, a sample of three different tastes. The eggplant was very good and the butternut squash ravioli was to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Salad and dessert were also very good.
Way too pricey for lunch... and we didn’t have any cocktails.
Amazing place, excellent food and beautiful environment
The pasta trio did not disappoint. We always fit in a dinner on our visits to Pittsburgh.
Overall a good meal although below the standard I am used to at Felidia in NYC. It is remarkable it has managed to stay open for 17 years in Pittsburgh My wife and I shared the burrata and the pasta tasting which were delicious. My wife had the lamb chops for the main course which was delicious and cooked perfectly. I ordered the pork chop parmigiana which was way undercooked at first and a bit overdone afterwards. The manager came over and apologized and offer to replace it with any other entree. Very graceful and our server was great. I would definitely go back in a future visit to Pittsburgh
We were at Lidia's for a family girls get together and to celebrate my birthday. I had the chef's sampler of pasta and only enjoyed one of the pastas. The pork ragout was the only one two of us enjoyed. The bowtie with shrimp and butternut squash had no flavor. I was given only 1 tiny shrimp also. expected to also see small chinches of squash in the sauce also.
The gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce was also very bland. Hate to say that I make better gorgonzola sauce.
My sister and niece shared the chicken special and said it was dry. Thankfully it had a sauce to go over it that they said helped and was flavorful.
Unfortunately our dinners was not as wonderful as our previous visit
Excellent Italian food! Home made pasta is wonderful. Desserts were delicious. Service a bit slow but we enjoyed the ambience.
Overall we were disappointed. My food came out 2-3 min before my hub’s pasta trio. My squash was unrecognizable and lamb chops were unseasoned and overcooked. It took a few minutes to flag down the waitress to send my meal back. Hub was almost finished eating by the time I got round #2. Lamb was cooked unevenly and still with no seasonings (not even salt and pepper), but at least the squash was recognizable and tasty. Hub couldn’t get anyone’s attention to ask for cheese for his pasta. Waitress never circled back to see if round 2 was better than the first.
The highlights were the Caesar salad and the apple crostata. The pasta trio and the lamb chops were meh.
45$ for a bland chicken with 4 mushrooms and 3 bite size potatoes plus it was a 2hour wait at the table . The kitchen was uninspiring for the price they ask. But the staff was extremely nice.
The brunch is fabulous! Plenty of choices and everything was delicious! Our waitress Lorie made it extra fun, she was amazing! Ask for her
Excellent food, fabulous atmosphere, good pricing. Highly recommended!
The food was good overall but was overpriced.
I have been to Lydia’s several times for business lunches and occasionally for dinner. My wife and I went a few months ago and while the food was good it seemed to have lost its luster. I always give a restaurant the benefit of the doubt and a second chance. So my wife and our sons family had an early dinner there Saturday night before we headed to a Pittsburgh Riverhounds soccer match. The service was terribly. We waited 40 minutes for our meals. We just ordered entrees. There we 6 of us and it was not crowded when we arrived at 4:30 pm. Everyone revived there entrees after 40 minutes but me. I ordered the pasta special which provides 3 different pasta dishes. They arrived about 5 minutes later and when I asked for parmigiana cheese it took another 5 minutes. Now the food. The kids enjoyed their grill cheese sandwiches but my sons strip steak was tough, my pasta was only average at best. The waiter was very nice but the service and the food were not worth my money. It will be my last visit to Lydia’s
We had a wonderful time. Our food was delicious. Congratulations on your award winning appetizer, lobster cappuccino!!
Every time I am in Pittsburgh for business, I treat myself and my clients to dinner at Lidia's, and every time it is a memorable experience. Love the food! Love the place!
Been to everyone of Lidia’s Restaurants across the countryHave enjoyed them all.
Wait staff is wonderful. We had Corey on September 30, 2018 at 1pm. It was my mother's 84th birthday and the staff brought her a dessert with Happy 84th Birthday written in chocolate. She was brought to tears.
We will be back.
My cousin, daughter and son-in-law and I don't see each other that often and planned a special dinner at Lidia's. We arrived a few minutes early and decided to have a drink while waiting. The bartender was very friendly, knowledgable and was very prompt to serve us. However, things went downhill after that. It took FOREVER to get anything to eat. We ordered two appetizers and a bottle of wine and the food was fairly good. At the same time we placed our orders for appetizers we gave the server our dinner choices. We asked if we could have some bread from one of the waiters who walked by and he us a brought a couple of slices with bread sticks. The wait time for our main meal was over an hour and the total time from when we were seated until we left was 2-1/2 hours. We will not return any time soon and will not recommend your restaurant to anyone. What started out as an enjoyable evening was very frustrating for the length of time it took to wait on us. I had made the reservation well in advance and someone from Lidia's called to confirm we would be dining there of which I said yes. I think you were overly busy Saturday night and took in more people than you had servers and cooks to handle. When we did receive our main course the food was nothing to be excited about. My daughter's steak was not even warm and the pasta was overcooked. I really wish we had saved the $250.00 and cooked at home or found another restaurant. What we will always have is a bad memory of eating at Lidia's. Awful, awful, awful!
We came here to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It is in an old warehouse but it was nicely decorated. The only drawback was the noise level. Because of the high ceiling and the room is very large so it holds a lot of people, the noise level was terrible. It was very hard to carry on a conversation with all the noise. I had the lasagna which was very good. My husband had the Osso Bucco which was just ok. I probably would not return because of the noise and the food was good but outstanding.
Serving the Trio at the table was slow. Took too long to wait for someone to put cheese on the pasta and for water. Just have cheese and water on table.
Have been a fan of Lidia for years.
GF decided we had to go for my birthday
Great food. She had seafood soup I had short ribs.
We had an excellent wait person She was very friendly and so helpful.
The food and wine at Lidia's were very good. Our server Sam gave us excellent service. We had a seat by the window which was a nice touch. We look forward to returning to Lidia's in the near future for another fine dining experience!
We drive 3 hours to eat at Lidia’s and it’s always worth it. The service is amazing and the food is fantastic.
Friendly service. Good portions. Good value.
I took my mother to Lida’s for her 90th Birthday. From the moment we walked in we felt well cared for. The hostess gave us a few minutes to freshen up before we went to the table, the waitress was patient and explained the Bruch quite well. The buffet was exquisite in presentation, variety and taste. The surprise ice cream Birthday Trio was delicious! I highly recommend Lida’s
Great food and ambiance. Lovely interior. Servers very attentive and accommodating. Could highly recommend.
We saw good reviews but we were very disappointed. The service was disjointed and we were compensated for big delays but the misses kept coming. We fell through the cracks and no server came to our table until we tracked someone down. No one filled the water. The gap between courses was very unacceptably long.
The one dish was very much enjoyed but the other (breaded pork chop) was not a good choice. The breading (adding both sides), was almost as thick as the meat and the meat had no flavor. The vegetable (chard with mushrooms) filled the entire plate.
All in all not a quality meal under any stretch of the imagination.
Lidia's Pittsburgh is AMAZING authentic Italian cuisine. The homemade pasta is luscious, and for appetizers, try the Felida scampi appetizer for a gluten free alternative. Staff are extremely attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu
Loved our dinner there! Pasta was wonderful; wait staff very attentive.
Outstanding food and service. Beautiful restaurant!
Wonderful evening with friends! Loved the pasta trio served tableside!!
So disappointed after having better experiences at this location in the past. First of all I love Lidia and watch her on tv faithfully.
To begin with server was very brash. We ordered the frito misto platter to begin with and it was protege worst calimari we’ve ever had. It tastes like the oil it was fried in and very tough and greasy. (I’ve had better at people’s homes before). We told our waiter because no body ate any more after tasting it and she didn’t do anything about it. A waste of $14. All of our guest were also disappointed in their food as well. The ceasar salad had way to much dressing and was soggy. Pene wth meatballs tastes good however the meatballs fell flat.
In a town full of authentic Italian restaurants I would not recommend this one any longer. Very over priced for mediocre food.
Service is excellent. Brunch was okay. Some dishes were excellent. Some just average. We would have preferred to order from menu as that may have made a difference.
Unfortunately the waiter spill a glass while removing dishes...made no effort to assist with clean up on my husband's slacks...the incident left a damper on the table's company....because it was our gift to our guests we let the incident go...spot on pant was cleaned by cleaners.
The food, as always, was wonderful. The pasta is delicate and full of flavor. The beet salad was tart and was perfect for fall. The staff was friendly and helpful. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and even though we didn't order dessert, they gave us something for the celebration.
We were looking forward to having dinner at Lidia’s Pittsburgh but were very disappointed. Wine was not what was expected, appetizer was not good and three pasta dish was tasteless. Our taxi driver told us it is a hit or miss and that was definitely the case. Not at all Ike Lidia’s nyc locations.
