This restaurant is NOT in Genk

Da Lidia is located in Maasmechelen, 15km and 20min drive from Genk. Well known and highly appreciated Italian restaurant. Reservation is a must.

The food is overpriced, mostly fried and drowned in sauce. Waitstaff have no idea what they're doing, got send the wrong food multiple times during one evening. Place looks like a cafeteria with red accents. Been there 2 times (because I was invited not by choice) but times I was really disappointed and was sick for most of day after... More

I've had dinner here before, but the last time was a long time ago. It was the first time that I had made a reservation for the Grand Café. I thought it was nicer than the restaurant. The waiters were very friendly and our meals were served quickly. We all ate the dish with 3 different kinds of pastas and... More

Quite good quality, but getting a bit expensive these last years. Probably best to make a reservation, especially on weekends. Service is always friendly ......

Price was good, quality was poor on saturday evening 8/3/14. To much people and very noisy. Waiter with dirty t-shirt. One man on table around us had 'unpleasant' contacts with different waitresses ... I made a reservation for a good place for a romantic tête à tête on international womans day, it was a disaster. Canneloni was only sauce, pizzabottom... More

Arriving on a Friday evening without reservation is a risk, not in Da Lidia! Only the Brasserie was open, the restaurant part closed, but a waitress was appointed to open the restaurant and serve us dinner. Within an hour more than 15 people could enjoy dinner without reservation. The chef said:" My grandmother used to say, when there is music,... More

Nice place, good lighting and beautiful decoration. Great for a romantic dinner or just an evening out with friends. They stated in their menu that patience is a must but you'll be rewarded with great culinary food. Only one part was true: the great culinary food. We ordered a dish with fish, some pasta and a meat dish and got... More

Great cosy Italian restaurant with very friendly personel. Traditional dishes are genuine italian. Tasty pastas served very much al dente: Tricolore, Vongole, Aglio Olio Y peperoncini - Calamari Fritti - Osso Bucco - Different Risottos. Great choices of Antipasti and Piatti Secondi and fine deserts. Wines and liquors make it all a nice feast. There are two different areas to... More
