Mushy pasta, bagged salad, rubber scallops, horrible atmosphere and dirty. Cannot believe this place is open for business. Lido's makes Olive Garden seem like a 5 star restaurant. Not to mention the waitresses were drunk and took 20 minutes to come to our table. STAY AWAY if you have taste buds.

Pros: That i never have to go back

Cons: Bad food, drunk waitress, dirty.

Our family of four was in town for a Disney vacation and were not on the dining plan, so we ate a lot of dinners out of the park. It was our youngest's turn to choose the cuisine and she chose Italian, after a quick search online we found Lido's and headed over. We were expecting a good meal, based on the reviews, but nothing could have prepared us for the delicious food that was served to us in this tiny, unassuming spot. The homemade salad dressing, delicious breadsticks and huge portions of homey Italian food had us silent as we just shoveled the yummy food in. The wine list was also VERY reasonable, which isn't always the case in touristy areas like Orlando. The next night it was our older daughter's turn to choose dinner, and she asked if we could go back to Lido's! We headed back there and had an equally delicious dinner that night. They remembered us from the night before and treated us like family. As much as I will miss our vacation at Disney, I think we will all miss Lido's even more! I wish they would move to Dallas!

Pros: Absolutely delicious food and very warm service

Cons: Food takes a bit of time....so it can be a slow dinner

I have been going to this restaurant for years and am so glad they've opened for lunch again. They have the best dinner salad in town that is served with fantastic breadsticks. Their lunch specials are always good and the portions are big. The servers are also very friendly and professional and the atomosphere is nothing short of comfortable. You can take your family, a date or coworkers and it feels like the right setting. I only wish they were right downtown so I could eat there more than once a week.

Pros: very good for a night out for two or four.

Cons: I wouldn't bring a large party there the restaurant is small they might accomidate though.

The food was terrible! The management/owners of this restaurant should be ashamed! I wish there were laws against serving Lean Cuisine entrees at a restaurant, and for trying to charge $13.95-14.95 for them.

The service was not entirely professional.

Back to the food. The chicken in the chicken madeira was cold. Also tasted like it had been precooked (frozen) and simply reheated. After sending it back, ordered something different, the chicken marsala.

A joke! The chicken, this time tasting more microwaved than the last pieces, was tasteless. The sauce? A horror! It was watery, and tasted so. It appeared as if it were a microwave meal tossed on a plate. And they want you to pay $14.95 for it.

We complained to the waitress and were not charged for this garbage, but not even a manager came by to apologize or ask how it could be improved. (They obviously don't care.)

We will never return, and have vowed to spread the word of this sub-par farce.

Pros: None

Cons: Food was horrible, Service was "meh," Management blaise

Our meal opened with a bowl of wilted, soggy lettuce that they called a salad. This pile of unappetizing leaves was coupled with a greasy oil and vinegar mixture. It would have needed some salt to at least resemble a vinaigrette. After our party of six used the unremarkable bread sticks to soak up the salad mush, the waitress came around to fill up our drinks. She reached across the table and bumped and leaned on several of our chairs without apology. She managed to invade our space and still forget to clear away any of our empty plates. My Ceasar salad forgot to be a Ceasar, by which I mean the dressing was not tossed with the greens nor properly flavored. Those who ordered pasta dishes with a red sauce were served a tomato puree that lacked in salt or ANY other seasoning. Some basil or oregano might have helped these dishes be average as opposed to inedible. The one guest who ventured to pay over $16.00 for his meal ordered a shrimp scampi. This translated into seven severely overcooked shrimp and one very sad side order of spaghetti. All of the pasta served managed to be pasty and very poorly prepared. I do not recommend this restaurant for even a casual dish. You would be better off going to Olive Garden, or ordering from Pizza Hut.

Pros: It's Air-Conditioned

Cons: Over priced and inedible!

Good Italian restaurant. I've had the Lasagna lunch special and it's just GOOD!!! and also the Meatball sub is very good. After their renovation the place it's much more comfortable. I recommend specially for lunch times.

I have been eating at Lido's for over 20 years. While the ownership has changed, it is one of the few examples of a real family Italian restaurants in Orlando. The food is always of a high quality, served promptly by courteous staff. The meals always begin with lot's of salad and bread and the veal or chicken pizziola is outstanding.

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.

Pros: Great Service, Dinner Salad is Great

Cons: Parking, Not real italian food

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.

Pros: Food, Prices/Menu Selection, Staff

Cons: Parking

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.

Editorial from

The Scene
Amid the kitschy charm of plastic grapes, checkered red and white tablecloths and a dozen hanging potted plants, you will find Italian-American cuisine done right.

The Food
From eggplant rollatini…
