Even without reservations, they were able to accommodate our group of seven and when two didn't show (confusion about time), the server made us feel welcome and didn't make a fuss about seating for 5. The lasagna is excellent and the garlic bread is warm and keeps on coming. Pizza is loaded with cheese and pepperoni although no one ordered... More

This is my very favorite restaurant! I have been going here since I was a young girl, riding my bike over with the neighbor girls to enjoy pizza and ice tea! The menu is simple, mainly the basics but every dish is wonderfully enjoyable. Good food, great atmosphere, friendly staff and good prices! I especially love their house salad dressing!... More

This place has been around for about 60 years, and that says something big in my book when a restaurant can last that long. Been visiting the in laws going on 10+ years now and oddly enough we had never eaten here before, after having dinner here one night, I'm not sure why we hadn't. Good pasta dinners that come...

Lidos is one of those old neighborhood restaurants that has the best italian food. I had the whole roast chicken in a lemon garlic sauce. I ordered it at recommendation of friends. It was fabulous. Plus for $18. I took most home to savor for 2 more days. The spaghetti that came with was great. Loved the gravy. The salad... More

Local Italian restaurant has probably been there for years. I sampled all of pasta dishes and the pizza. The pizza is the ticket. The crust is thin and baked to perfection. The various pasta dished are better than average. They all kind of taste the same. The marinara and meat sauces are OK... nothing special. If you want good food,... More

Okay, I know you are skeptical. "Best Italian food ever", yes no kidding!! I am totally serious, the food is soooo good! This is on of those rare places that I find myself thinking about their food whenever I get near the area of Lemon Grove. To top it off, the prices are amazingly reasonable. The waiter staff is great... More

Ordered meat pizza, when I opened the box, all the meat on one side of the pizza. Otherwise, delicious.

This is my go to Italian restaurant in San Diego each time I visit. Great "Mom and Pop" family restaurant that serves up home made pasta, pizza, salads anything Italian! Check out their daily specials, they are very good! Great big servings and lots of love go into this food. Can't get enough.

This is a great restaurant that has been around for many years. The chicken Parmesan and ravioli are the best! The prices are really good and the service is just as great. My daughter, who is a picky eater, loves this place as well.
