The menu selections were excellent as well as the presentation and service. We were welcomed, congratulated on our anniversary and shown to a corner table where Rachel and the wait staff took excellent care of us.

I had the full Sunday brunch with 3 pastas. They weren't special, I don't even remember what they were other than a little starchy, over-cooked, and salty. Nothing was cooked to order. The price is a little high for mass-produced pasta, common deli antipasti, the...More

If you visit Union Station...you can walk across the bridge where there are 3 restaurants. Lidias is the worst. It is priced like a NYC Italian place with avarage food and service. I recently went with my daughters family and it was underwhelming. Dont waste...More

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.
