That's not Italian....
I've been trying to go to Lido's for a long time. Finally I went with my wife and we both were very excited about getting to know Lido's.
We were seated promptly and the whole crew was friendly, the Dinner salad is wonderful and the homemade bread was delightful. My wife ordered a CHICKEN MARSALA and I ordered SHRIMP SCAMPI. Here everything went downhill, the chicken wasn't marsala at all, it tasted like a boiled chicken breast with marsala wine after dumping a can of mushrooms on top, my shrimp scampi were worse, usually you get it over pasta with either alfredo sauce or "al'olio", not here, the shrimps were on the side, and honestly the pasta with marinara sauce tasted as good as the one out of the ragu bottle.
I'll be back if they get somebody that knows hot to do italian cuisine.
By the way, I'm Italian.
Thats Amore!. Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant. The lunch special is a great deal, try the eggplant Miguel...mmmmmmm. I saw them take care of a party of 26 there so they can handle large groups. One downside is the parking, but it will seem insignificant after you eat.
Not A Chain!.
Family bistro with the best homemade salad dressing. Lunch specials with a pasta, bread, and bottomless salad bowl for less than $6 are a real find.
Food is fresh and homemade.
