Three of our family members are gluten-free, and this restaurant had great options. We enjoyed gluten-free chicken meatballs, each of us with different sides and sauces, spinach pesto, and escarole and beans, were very good. Staff was very attentive and worked well together.

Lidia's is an excellent place to go for a special occasion, or for just a great dinner. The atmosphere is great, the food is excellent and the staff is exceptional. If I have family or friends in from out of town, I like to take them to Lidia's . If you have not tried Lidia's, I highly recommend it.
