Lidia’s Pittsburgh opened in March of 2001, only two years after Lidia Bastianich opened the popular Lidia’s Kansas City, her first venture outside of Manhattan. The menu features a daily pasta tasting, with homemade pastas that incorporate the seasons freshest ingredients in addition to hearty Italian favorites such as the Osso Bucco, a braised Heritage Pork Shank with barley risotto. The Scallopine of Chicken Breast with roasted lemon, capers, and olive and Grilled Salmon Fillet with Yukon gold potatoes, reflects that essence that is Lidia’s cooking.
