Looking for a place to chill with your friends on a lazy weekday - even weekend - night?

Insert drumroll here aaaand: Welcome to Café Lidia!!!

The menu centers on Italian cuisine, the restaurant interior feels laid-back, toasty, fun, and homey. We ordered Pizza Lidia, Fish and Chips, FLT Sandwich (Fish, Lettuce and Tomato, cute huh?) and bottomless drinks.

The Pizza is simply unforgettable. I LOVE IT! It has this thin crust, crispy around the edges, soft and a bit chewy in the middle, and not too overloaded toppings. If you’ve tried authentic Italian pizza, you know exactly why I’m all shook up! Take a look at the Pizza Lidiaaaa (220 PhP): thin crust, a sweep of tomato sauce, olives, anchovies and capers!

The FLT sandwich (155 PhP) was good, too. Crispy fish fillet with juicy lettuce and tomato. You can have your free fix of Mayo and Ketchup, just ask the servers. They serve Mayo Light, mind you.

The Fish and Chips (160 PhP) completed the meal. I don’t know what got into us that day and we went “alla pescatora” that night. Dining in Café Lidia was a cool experience! (Did I mention they have free Wi-Fi?)

Hope you experience Cafe Lidia soon! By the way, take a look at this cute Dads and Kiddos pic at the desserts counter:
