This is an amazing restaurant. The staff is very friendly, the food is genuine italian cuisine. My favorite dishes here are the Scampi Alessandro (scampi prepared in 4 different ways) and the pasta of the chef.

we just came out of Maasmechelen Village and saw this rather big italian restaurant. We had dinner in the restaurant (there's also a Grand Café). Crowdy and busy, yet very fine atmosphere with friendly service. They serve real italian dishes, lots of choice between pasta, pizza, seafood, shared plates, .... We had the Plateau de luxe XL, which is a... More

My partner and I have dined at Da Lidia many times in the past 20 years; we were disappointed by our latest visit and probably will not return - its really a shame because their food is very, very good. While the prices at Da Lidia are a bit higher than similar level Italian restaurants in the area, we felt... More

A very nice Italian experience. To start they offered us a glass of Proseco. The most alike portuguese "green wine" and that i love so much. First question "what do you want t eat? meat or fish?" and then the 2 dishes are made of your choice. I've chosen meat. So i had some ham and other stuff with olive... More

Da Lidia is at the same time a restaurant for couples, family but also appreciated for a dinner with business partners. Located next to the main road of Maasmechelen near the highway you can enjoy nice Italian food. It is a good mid-class restaurant with a good variety of courses. Please reservate before visit.

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 ......
