“An excellent meal in comfortable surroundings”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

As we walked back to our hotel from the Strip, we went into the restaurant to make a dinner reservation. We were glad we did since there was only one table still available. When we arrived for dinner, we were quickly seated. We decided to try the famous pasta trio. When trying to decide whether to get a salad and dessert to go with it, the server suggested he split the salad for us. That was an awesome idea because the portion of salad that arrived for each of was as large or larger than what is usually served to one. It was also delicious. Rarely have I enjoyed a simple salad quite so much. The bread, too, was excellent though the toppings were not memorable.

The pastas arrived and moderate portions of each were served. We had a chicken and tomato, a pesto, and a mushroom ravioli. All were very good and the the ravioli was exquisite. We were offered additional pasta and could have had as much as we wanted. I found the original portion sufficient. My husband had sole possession of the dessert as he really likes tiramisu and I do not.

Service was very professional and attentive without being overwhelming. We really enjoyed our meal and would certainly return.

“Pasta and more”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Lidia's pasta is always delicious - give the daily lunch trio a try - all you can eat of three different types of pasta dishes served tableside. The weekend brunch is something to plan ahead for - reservations a must - and well worth it.

“BEST BRUNCH EVER!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Have been to Lidia's many times - usually for the weekend brunch but also for dinner. This has to be the best brunch anywhere ever AND the best value! Large choice of entrees and the buffet tables are amazing to say the least! GO HUNGRY!!! You will be stuffed afterward.

“wonderful Italian cuisine in a warm and inviting restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Trio of pasta was a delicious way to sample different sauces and pasta. The wine list was extensive and offered a generous assortment by the glass. Take a look at the stellar light fixtures suspended from the spacious ceilings -I loved them!

“Not As Good As Lidia's NYC”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I were here for dinner in Sept. 2012 and were a little disappointed after having eaten at Lidia's in New York City in March 2012, which was quite good. We found the service very slow and the food average and not memorable at all.
