    Came here for the first time Sunday evening for a late Valentine's dinner, and Lidia's exceeded our expectations. We got the Pasta Trio (that was highly recommended) which came with a starter salad, 3 endless options of their pasta, and dessert. The Caesar salad was homemade and fantastic. The ravioli was clearly the star of the show, filled with potato & leek, and surrounded by a beautiful white sauce with bacon. The other 2 pasta options were delicious too, the fettucine noodles reminded me of my grandmothers cooking. I felt like I was getting a big warm hug every time I took a bite. Ending with the Tiramisu & the Panna Cotta... if we weren't so full I would have ordered 2 more, it was that good. The service was phenomenal!! Would I recommend to a friend? Absolutely. I am already making plans on coming back.

    Heritage pork was almost all bone. Osso bucco was only fair. Andy, our waiter was the best part of the experience. We had made a special trip to KC to eat here. Could have down better at Italian restaurants in Fayetteville, AR, without the 4 hour drive.

    The food is exceptional. I always get the pasta trio meal and enjoy Lidia's version of the Caesar salad. The seating is a little tight and it is a noisy venue. My wife and I anticipate a great dinner when we go to Lidias and I have never been disappointed.

    We came to KC for a show and made dinner reservations at Lidia’s. I had the pork shank and my husband had the gnocchi. Did not disappoint…SO GOOD. My husband asked the waiter for guidance on a wine pairing and was very pleased. We shared a dessert and it lived up to all our expectations. The food came out super quick, and o ur waiter was fantastic as well. High marks all around! We will be back!

    This was my sister and I’s first time coming here, and it honestly blew me away! I had heard from colleagues and friends that it was really good, but some of the reviews were a little squirrely. I was not disappointed! They gave us ample time between each course, our waitress was phenomenal, and the food was so light and fresh. I absolutely loved it and will be back! Definitely worth the money. Also gosh it was such a beautiful environment too, loved the layout.

    The service was incredibly slow. We waited about 40 minutes for our dinner to come out. I also couldn't find my server to tell him that we were celebrating a birthday so I went to the hostess and told him to tell my server we are celebrating a birthday and they didn't bring anything out for the birthday girl. Slow service, food was room temperature, didn't get a birthday anything. Won't return.

    My boyfriend and I have come here for years now but haven’t been in a while. Last night we were served a salad with almost only lettuce stems. We ordered the pasta trio which two pastas came out lukewarm and the other was piping hot. Then we got tiramisu which the portion was VERY small compared to the last couple time we got it. We both took one bite of it and it was sour. So disappointed as we loved this place and hyped it up to everyone we know. Hope you can get it back to how it was a year ago.
