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.

The food was tasty, but everything was served lukewarm. Pretty disappointing

Service, value and ambiance was very good. Food was good, but felt overall 3 stars. Nothing really wowed me. Seems like a nice Italian spot. Def the pasta trio sampler is the way to go. Will visit this place again. I liked the experience and good selection and good priced bottles of wine.

I won’t order/recommend sea bass...bland, as was sauce. Roasted vegetables very tasty but were quite al dente, making me work more than I care to when dining. A steak knife or sharp knife would have been helpful. The beet & blood orange salad was quite lovely, and the lemoncello tiramisu was nice. Wine suggestions & waiter helpful. Thanks!

Hostess was very polite and helpful. Waitress staff was excellent and very accommodating. Will return to that location and very easy to locate.

Lidia’s is a great little spot at the strip District, not sure I would go on a date again and the atmosphere was not romantic and there was only a fixed menu the night we went which was a bummer. I would most likely come back for dinner with the kids.

Went for Valentine’s Day, they tried to shove us in upstairs area just at top of stairs. We requested a different table and they graciously accommodated. The meal was very good although it was a set four course which was not specified until the day before.
All in all the restaurant is lovely, the service good and food outstanding! We chose to do 45 dollar per person wine pairing , better off buying a bottle!

Valentines Day was terrific. Service just a bit slower than usual as they were packed. Loves every course of the special menu. Tiramisu was a Great way to close our meal.
