We came in without reservations for an important family meal. I explained the situation and we were given a wonderful table. The service was lovely, as was the food. We were really pleased.

Expectation on Valentines Day for a nice meal but ended up a bad experience. My son has shellfish allergy but waitstaff handled as if they didn’t care. Food average. Too many great food choices in KC to tolerate treatment like this. Won’t be back. 😡

I seldom eat pasta but went for the pasta trio. Enjoyed the spicy farfalle, the spaghetti an the risotto. They have a very extensive wine list with many Italian specialties and prices to match any budget. Octopus appetizer was awesome.

Around 30 min to MCI. I don't know if there's a Sunday brunch but would make a reservation and give yourself a couple of hours to be at Lydia"s. Their service is very slow.

Not, sure I would give them a call to see, but like others have said if you have time to go you should because the atmosphere there definitely adds to the experience of Lidia's food!
