“Perfect food for pasta lovers!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here with my family just 2 nights ago and the food is perfect! its very affordable but super delicious! One thing though, no adequate parking space :( and also dont come late or youll have to wait for long period of time just to be seated. Better make a reservation first to avoid queue. But as they say. The longer you wait for something the more its worthy and its indeed true when it comes to their foooooood!! I llooooove it and will surely come back in the near future and try the rest on their menu!

“A secret place no more”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My first visit to the place is thru my elementary classmate...later on i was introduced to the chef who happens to be her husband..i first tried the pasta..my next visit, i devoured a salad and a sandwich..next visit i had a full meal w/ dessert and coffee...and then i got into the pasta-pizza-appetizer thing again...and the list of the visits went on..
I thought it would be just a secret place for the Marikenos to hang-out in, but being featured in several TV shows - awww, not a secret place any more..huhuhu! now we really have to queue to have a table..
Anyways, Cafe Lidia is not only for good food and ambience, but superb warm service and great friendship with all the staff and crew...so,take time to visit, have a peek, get a table and eat with gusto !

“For special occasions, and for days just made special.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I love Café Lidia. It's cozy and offers value for money food. The place is small, and the tables tend to be too close to each other, but there's a sense of privacy. Some of their pasta sauces tend to be on the salty side (red sauces), but everything else tastes fantastic! Their desserts are also amazing. Any which one of their chocolate cakes is heaven.

“One of the best!!!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I love the place because it's very relaxed, simple yet elegant interior as if you are warped to a cafeteria in Italy. They have a wide variety of entrees, starters, pizza, pasta, cakes, etc. Their pasta ala lidia is very tasty. My favorite pizza lidia is to die for because of it is very delicious. The service is good and timely. This is a place to be for food lovers.
