Happened to get to Lidia's early for dinner, so we sat at the bar to wait for a table. While at the bar, we found out that it was happy hour and that most of the appetizers and the duck gnocchi on the dinner menu are half price on the happy hour menu along with a good selection of wines.... More

Lidia's food is wonderful and the atmosphere is so attractive. This restaurant is always a winner with business lunches, family gatherings, dinner out with friends. They are known for their pasta trio--come hungry! This is not your typical spaghetti-and-meatballs type Italian restaurant--it's more upscale and modern cuisine. Servers are helpful and friendly. Great destination in the Crossroads Arts District.

Lidia's Restaurant is my friend's favorite restaurant in KC and we go here every June to celebrate her birthday! I have celiac so my options are limited, but Lidia's is able to accommodate me. The first time we went, it was excellent. Impeccable and attentive service, our waiter went above and beyond to ensure my meal was gluten free so... More

Visited on a Saturday night with my fiancé and thankfully made reservations because the place was booked solid. Elegant setting for certain and excellent service too. The meal begins with expertly mixed cocktails and bread with a couple of interesting spreads. I had the pasta trio but unfortunately wasn't greatly impressed by any of the 3 offerings, not bad but...

Staff and facilities excellently kept. Not my first trip to one of her stores. This one is really relaxed and staff are first rate. The 3 pasta standard was fantastic. Wine pairings very good. A great value and good for a meeting or special event

I was in town for business and stopped in for dinner. On Tuesday they have a price fixed menu so I was able to sample a wide variety of items and I have to say I was more than pleased with each offering!

Went with friends and it's been about 10 years since last visit. Heard the salmon was great and I thought lasagna was good, it's a nice atmosphere and our server was very attentive without being overwhelmed with attention. The server knew had to gage the pace of dinner without rushing. It's a pleasant place to dine and is on upper... More

I dont get the popularity of this place. We have visited most upscale places in metro, this one ranks at bottom. For italian, not even close to Cascones.
