Delicious pizza, great service

We went here with a groupon for their pizza. It's not the most glamorous place, and it's small, but it looks out over the inner harbour and the service was excellent. The pizza was delicious, we shared the Lido special and it was plenty of food for two, we would definitely go back!

We got a groupon and glad we did. The bistro was right on the water, our waitress was the best, and the pizza was excellent. Very reasonably priced. A little bit hard to find, but well worth the extra effort.

I just finished hosting an engagement dinner at Lido and we got the whole space to our selves for our private party. I booked about 6 weeks in advance and I was every bit annoying with all my little requests I had for Steve (The manager) he not only answered my questions in a timely manner, but he never said...

What a great find! When I first got there I sat near the bar waiting for my family, I got to chat with the staff, very friendly and can offer great tips about the city. They have great local beers on tap. Once the family joined we sat at a table on the patio, let me tell you, that is... More

Lido Waterfront is easy to miss, we would not... More

I travel solo frequently enough and usually get great service. Not the case here. Walked up to get a seat, had to track down a waitress to ask if I could sit somewhere. She couldn't get a seat on the patio (understandable, it was busy), but didn't offer a seat inside, she seemed quite uninterested in helping out an individual... More

The waitress was beautiful, the beer was cold, and the pizza tasted fresh with an incredible gravy! Perfect view and atmosphere for splitting a pizza between the four of us and sampling the local beers. Savannah, GA needs a place modeled after Lido.
