    Exquisite food, great atmosphere and friendly staff, including talented chef Serena Bass, a true genius. Lunch specials for $10 are excellent deals: steam mussels and the Tuscan burger were perfect!!

    The traditional Italian décor coupled with the brick wall normally seen in bars lends itself well to the overall ambience of this spot. A variety of Italian dishes are offered, and they also deliver.

    Get there before 1pm to beat the church crowd for Sunday brunch. The French toast and the chicken panini are great options to try. Opt for the bottomless mimosas. Well worth it

    The food is so good. I tried the open faced panini along with a mimosa, no regrets!!! I'm a city guy so I love this place so take that in mind, this is a noisy place, but lovely though.

    Perfect date night spot - we enjoyed the creamy garlic bread, gnocchi and the ravioli dishes. They were all delish and very attentive service. Can't wait to go back.

    If they have it as a special be sure to treat yourself to their pumpkin ravioli with a balsamic reduction. Simply unbelievable

    This restaurant has a great vibe, all meals are wonderful and they have a great happy hour that lasts until 7:30. Fill up then take a stroll through nearby Morningside Park.

    The short-rib hash paired with bottomless mimosas is probably the single best thing you could possibly do around Morningside Heights on a Saturday or Sunday morning.

    Definitely one of the bigger brunch venus in the area. Wait staff is awesome for how busy the brunch hour is for them. Great for dates, if you have visitors in town or meeting a girlfriend.

    Please try the Spagehttini Parmesan, and spend the extra 6 bucks and get the Shrimp! I promise you you won't regret it! Also, treat yourself to the Garlic Parmesan Bread! Awesome!

    Lunch menu is really cheap and tasty! The hamburger is good and also the spaghetti (10 $ each). Just across the street you have a Levain Bakery for the best dessert in town.

    Everything here is actually delicious. Be sure to definitely start off with Crostini (Salted Cod and Prosciutto for sure) also the Mushroom Polenta and Gnocchi with Truffle Butter is to die for.

    Bottomless mimosa brunch was spectacular! And it's only $13! The blueberry pancakes are fluffy and just melt in your mouth.

    There's a smaller lunch menu, meaning you can stop in and be on you way in under an hour. I recommend the garlic bread and gnocchi.

    Finally an eatery that gives good service, good wine, good food and good face. This is one good looking staff. Check out their gay night for the hipster folk with cash.

    $14 unlimited mimosas. They definitely keep them filled. Thumbs up. Saw a couple sit here for at least 45 mins post meal and nobody rushed them. They instead enjoyed more mimosas!!!!

    The best approach to Lido is to treat it like a tapas bar, snacking your way through dinner Read more

    Halibut was fantastic; good wine and good salad too. Bruschetta was dandy as well. A little pricey but worth it

    $15 cocktails make for a pretty big tab, but they're delicious. The undercooked my steak, so I'm a fan of drinking here over eating here.

    The mussels are so flavorful. Lots of garlicky tomato goodness. Oh and try the Sangria. It's $5 for happy hour and it has more flavor than I expected.
