Overall an incredible dining experience. The drinks, appetizers, and food was delicious. I would suggest the polenta fries and the gnocchi!

We enjoyed a nice dinner here. It was a short walk from our AirB&B apartment. Had the pasta special for the night, and it was delicious. The white sangria was also yummy!

One can often tell if the food is good when walking into a restaurant by its vibe. When we entered Lido, it was a good vibe. And the food lived up to the vibe. So did the service. Wonderful Italian food served in a congenial...More

Amazing spot for Brunch with friends. Make sure to make reservations and be ready to enjoy some amazing food and spirits. Can be a bit pricy so make note prior to heading over.

A family visit of 10 people. Nice service. Ambiance is a “hip I want to be cool vibe”. Unfortunately, the food does not live up to the hype. Octopus salad was bad. It was chewy, not grilled, and smoldered in a gooey sauce. The chicken...More

As southern Harlem becomes gentrified, many good restaurants are opening. We had an evening show at Columbia's Miller Theater - but there are absolutely no decent restaurants in that neighborhood, so we took the B to 116th St and later taxied up the hill to...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and

Lido’s menu is Northern Italian. The menu can be described as fresh, simple, and delicious. Flavors are layered so that each one stands out but does not compete with others in the dish. The food is organic and local whenever possible and all poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely. The ambiance is modish but relaxed. We look forward to seeing you soon.
