Voted Kansas City’s most popular Italian restaurant by Zagat Guide the last 5 years, Lidia’s Kansas City is located in the Crossroads Arts District. nnLidia Bastianich regarded as the first lady of Italian cuisine, opened Lidia’s Kansas City together with her son, Joseph Bastianich, in a former railroad house just north of Kansas City’s historic Union Station. Designed by acclaimed New York architect David Rockwell, the restaurant evokes the feel of an Italian farmhouse despite its tremendous size. nnThe menu at Lidia’s features a daily sampling of seasonal, daily-made fresh and filled pastas. The ‘pasta trio’ is served tableside and may be refilled as often as you like. Diners can also choose entrees such as roasted veal shank in a rich sauce served with risotto, chicken breasts lightly sautéed with lemon, capers, Sicilian olives and garlic, or a beautiful grilled salmon served over braised lentils.
