Set in an old warehouse, the noise level is a little high. The food is very good italian, and plentiful.

We're from NYC and eat at Becco's -- their first restaurant. Hard to believe -- but prices are higher in KC than in NYC. But, the food is just as good. We enjoyed great service in a nice setting. Happy we went there for dinner.

I usually try to eat at Lidia's whenever we are in Kansas City. I always get the sampler platter. Desserts are always fabulous -always go home and try to recreate.

My great-grandfather was Italian, so we are picky about Italian food in my family-one of my cousins is a prominent chef in Europe. We all approve of Lidia's. Unlike most Italian restaurants, the food is fresh and actually cooked, not warmed up. The restaurant has...More

Around 30 min to MCI. I don't know if there's a Sunday brunch but would make a reservation and give yourself a couple of hours to be at Lydia"s. Their service is very slow.
