Other family had been here and we love her cooking show, but the dining experience was disappointing for me. I had a glass of house wine and the eggplant parmesan, which was actually pretty good. Not a lot of food, but it was a different...More

Had lunch there within the past week. Service was slow and the result was not so good. Will seriously rethink a return visit.

We were pleasantly surprised by the service and the pasta. The trio was fresh, hot, and varied. I loved two of them; my husband the third. It was an early Sunday evening, so on other nights, things might be less well-oiled. But for us, it...More

Lidia's is an Italian restaurant near downtown Pittsburgh that's been around for quite awhile. It's a massive restaurant so you're sure to be able to find a table at any time any day. My wife, daughter, and I stopped by on a Saturday for brunch...More

The setting is lovely. The bread basket is varied and delicious. The service was dreadful. First, she couldn't open the wine. Seriously. Then she disappeared without asking about appetizers. She finally returned 20+ minutes later to take our order. My friend ordered the seafood soup,...More
