Lidia Bastianich may be best known as the Emmy-winning host of the PBS series Lidia’s Family Table, wherein she cooks Italian feasts alongside her mother and children. But that’s just one place where the chef combines her passions for food and family. Aside from authoring several cookbooks, Lidia also owns several restaurants, including Lidia’s Italy Kansas City, where loved ones gather to enjoy cuisine inspired by her northern Italian upbringing.
Lidia was born in Pula, Istria, which was once part of Italy. The multicultural city provided her with an expansive palate that is reflected in dishes such as osso buco made with heritage-breed braised pork shank and cabbage rolls stuffed with pork, beef, and veal. However, Lidia's Italy Pittsburgh is best known for its pasta trio, which grants diners unlimited servings of the chef’s choice of three housemade pastas.
A Cozy and Sophisticated Space
Lidia’s Italy Kansas City’s exposed ceiling beams and brick walls give a nod to space's origins as a railroad house. However, the space is remains rustic and elegant. Stained-glass shelves dotted with wine bottles and enormous blown-glass chandeliers offset the dining room's industrial backdrop, casting a warm glow on diners' mouthwatering meals.
