Ate here because it was near our hotel downtown- but we were so glad we did! The food and service was fantastic, and they were very kind about accommodating vegetarian requests for some in our party, as well as a shellfish allergy. Great restaurant!

Was referred to Lidias by a friend. Was a great choice. The unlimited pasta sampler was fantastic. My wife had the eggplant parm and loved every bite. Service was excellent by everyone. Refills on pasta were quick. Highly recommend this restaurant. Will absolutely return.

The 3 stars isn't about the food, which was good, or the service, which was excellent, but I would not suggest this Lidia's location for a 20-person dinner event. I found the atmosphere loud and crowded--difficult to chat with even my near neighbors.More
