I love Lido's food... best pizza hands down... The waiter, on the other hand was just plain old rude. (He's looks like a taller Latino version of PeeWee Herman) I watched as the waiter hustled back and forth to surrounding tables being

Back in 1973 I was living in Van Nuys and made Lido Pizza a weekly stop for the meatball sandwich from heaven. I now live in Los Osos next to Morro Bay and was checking on line to see if Lido was still around. I am so glad to hear that they are still in business and based on the reviews I am reading here I am going to drive ther 4 hours south to have my meatball sandwich!

I took my son to eat here after it was suggested to us that we try it. So we went today for dinner and I must say, the place looks pretty hood, but it is really an awesome hole in the wall type place. The people working there are really friendly and the service is excellent! Our waitress was pretty awesome. =) We ordered the Ravioli & Spaghetti, some meatballs, the garlic bread, and a pepperoni and sausage pizza. The pizza was yummy and cheesy... the spaghetti was bomb! The ravioli was light, but tasty, the meatballs were well - meaty! LOL. And the garlic bread was pretty delicious. There were many different types of people there and the ambience is pretty relaxing. The prices are pretty decent too. I would definitely go back and would definitely recommend this place. (Already told my bro to go there!)

Well, we had a group of 12 people and maybe they don't like large groups at this restaurant. Everything went downhill when we asked for separate checks. The waiter's head about exploded. First, he said no, then said he'd do up to 4, which is what we wanted in the first place so we said great. He proceeded to shake his head and act put out and disgusted every time he had to turn the page on his order pad. Then the food came... delicious! I shared the eggplant parmesan and supreme pizza. Both were among the best I've had of those items anywhere. Then the check came... He had put 3 other orders on our check. Asked him to re-do it. Came back and our 3 orders totaled $120! I don't think so. He recalculated, came back... $94. When I told him it was still wrong. He rolled his eyes, said "No, here let me show you." (like I was some sort of idiot). Yes... please show me! Re- calculated (including the 18% tip he added on himself) "Oh. It's $63." Yes. A $30 discrepancy! Who's the idiot? He said "That's why I don't do separate checks." Oh. So you can calculate an order for 12 easier than an order for 3? Or do people not notice a $30 discrepancy on a larger bill? Too bad the waiter was so rude or it would have been a perfect dining experience even with the long waits. At least with a wait you know the food's coming out fresh!

We've been eating at Lido's for a very long time, it's the only place I'll order lasagna because it's so very close to the way my grandmother use to make it. Took all my new in-laws there one night for dinner along with a couple from England who were visiting & everybody loved it. The homemade pasta, the rolls, the pizza is just the best anywhere in this valley!

If you go to Lido Pizza, you'll want to try the garlic bread. It is fresh buttery and all kinds of delicious. If you order a large cheese pizza, try the fresh basil on it. It will give the pizza an extra dimension of subtle flavor, and is really good.

We've been going to Lido's for over 30 years and we always have the Linguini and (white)Clam Sauce. It's the best in the States!

The pizza is ok. It has ALOT of cheese! It is not the best pizza ever but it is pretty good. The Lido salad is the best! We LOVE that salad. It is highly recommended. It is a nice little sit down place. The service is not that good. We sat there for awhile before we were greeted and slow service inbetween. but overall it is a nice place and we might go back again.

Now this is pizza!
A guy I was seeing brought me here and we ordered the Hawaiian pizza. I loved that they put whole pinapple rings and large pieces of canadian bacon.
What a pizza! Sadly, I didn't keep seeing this guy, but he left me with a great pizza place.

I really enjoy this Italian restaurant. The pizza is good, and refreshingly made with real cheese. The noodles are homemade and the sauces are decent, especially the meat sauce. It is a definite throwback, but in this world of chain restaurant oppression, it is a nice change. I feel quite comfortable going with my kids, or my friends, and while they don't do delivery, they have a very easy drive up service. They are a little pricier than a regular pizza place, but you can tell the quality of the ingredients is much better than one of those places.

I grew up in an Italian Neighborhood, so I lived pizza-- and, since moving in 1978, I have made the "Pizza Rounds" in the Los Angeles area. I was devastated when Lugi's, Palermo's, on Yucca Street in Hollywood closed-- Sicilian and authentic. Still, Lido's pizza is the real deal, never a disappointment-- and, it's a lot closer to me than Casa Bianca in Eagle Rock-- and they have better hours, although Casa Bianca is still a cut above. Lido's cheese is high quality, and the pizza is perfectly baked, thin-crusted, and not over-salted like a lot of places. And their meat sauce is very, very good and non-acidic. Only complaint, ordered spaghetti and meat sauce with three meatballs, and was shocked to find a sticker price of $19.45 attached. I wouldn't complain normally, but no salad or soup, and it was not an unusually large portion. Hey, it's only pasta! I suggest the family value meals if ordering anything other than pizza. And for some odd reason, the staff let a kid play a video game at the dinner table, so I was bombarded with obscenities and simulated killing for an hour. Not a real smart move for a quiet Sunday afternoon.

I've been to Pizza Mozza, Casa Bianca, Pizza Rustica, Lamonicas, Rocco's, Village Pizzeria, you name it. But Lido's has the best pizza in Los Angeles, bar none. I had their pepperoni and sausage pizza, and it literally blew me away. Definitely recommended!

I have turned many people on to Lido Pizza. I love the curbside service, order anytime after 5 pm and they'll bring it to your car!!
I especially love the spaghetti with meat sauce. The pastas are all homemade!! The marinara is also yummy.
The pizza is made to order (thick or thin crust) and they use cheese with a little bit of a smokey flavor, which is awesome.
Service is always prompt and given with enthusiasm. You can tell people really like working there.
I know people who have been going there for 30 years. LIterally.
It doesn't look like much from the outside, but you will have trouble deciding what your favorite menu item is.
They run lunch and dinner specials as well as Monday night family specials which are all a good value. Lunch and dinner specials are "all you can eat".
Lunch is served with yummy sourdough dinner rolls.
I drove by this place for years without a second look, thanks to a friend of mine who was not so snobbish and more adventurous. I had my first Lido pizza that day and have never looked back!

You can count on Lido's to have delicious food every time you go there. The homemade pasta is awesome! The meat sauce is really, really, tasty and fresh. They have wonderful hot rolls too, ask for a small side of meat sauce to dip it in---yummy!! Another great thing about Lido's is that the portions are BIG, so you always have leftovers for the next day. I actually think the pasta's taste better the next day! The service is good. I definately recommend this restaurant.

When my Parents came out here from New Jersey they needed a decent Italian restaurant. They found a great one in Lido's. The pizza sauce has a taste that keeps you coming back and so does the staff.

This place is weird but the pizza was decent. They have specials where you can get a whole lot of food at really cheap prices - I think that's what keeps this place going.

Lido's food is solid across the board. The meatballs, spaghetti sauce, rolls, etc. Not to mention the Pizza. The cheese they use is a cut above the rest. I've been going for 10 plus years and always leave full and content. I wish they would open a restaurant on the westside.

The best pizza west of the Mississippi! Being a native of New Jersey, and having experienced the 'best' pizza in the world, I have been on a quest since arriving in Los Angeles 20 years ago. By far, Lido's Pizza is the best for flavor, natural (gooey) cheeze, delicious toppings, and most of all, CONSISTENCY! I have been going to Lido's for 20 years, and the pizza is as good Today as the first time I ever tried it! I RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY IF YOU RESIDE IN OR VISIT THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY!

In Short
An entrance facade surrounded by cemented rocks and tapestry-patterned curtains screams of a restaurant happily trapped in the Brady Bunch-era. For more than 40 years, patrons have been requesting made-to-order pizzas…
