    My wife and I stayed at the Crossroads Hotel for our anniversary and had dinner at Lazia. We had heard great things about the Hotel and Restaurant and they did not disappoint. We've celebrated our anniversaries all over the US and abroad and dinner at Lazia was one of the best. The wait staff was great and the food was simply amazing! This is a hidden gem in Kansas City.

    One of the best meals. Davey was our server and so helpful with recommendations. You order family style typically. The table side mozzarella was fantastic. Brown butter ravioli, carbonara, and chicken were the show stoppers as well. We will definitely be going back.

    We had the best experience the first time we went so we came in with high expectations. This time we had a reservation and waited over 30 minutes to get a table. Then sat down, ordered drinks and waited 40 mins for them. We got our food before our drinks even came out. The waiter said the bar "lost our drinks". The food that came out was barely warm and didn't seem fresh. The lobster pasta was mediocore and came with half a claw of lobster meat. Honestly expected so much more and don't think we'll be back anytime soon!

    I expected bread and olive oil/butter immediately like in most Italian restaurants. This didn't happen and when I tracked down a waitress, it took 15 minutes to get any. Two $6 servings fed one to each of our 8 person party. Each piece was small but delicious! Service was terribly slow starting from being seated 20 minutes after our 7:30 reservation. ( Although they did service a "shot sized" complimentary drink while waiting in the lobby.) When the food was served (at random intervals with some eating 10 minutes before others) the portions were small but delicious. The lady preparing mozzarella at our table was excellent! Her presentation was fun, entertaining and informative--and delicious. We ate in the vault, which was very cool! Don't be hungry when you get there! If you are patient and reasonably full when you get there, the dining experience is unique and mostly fun. (Of course a lot of the fun was our group.) I recommend eating there... with my caveats!

    LaziaResponded on 10 June 2022Thank you for your review, Doug. We apologize for any hiccups in your service as we tried to align the timing of your two large tables at once. However we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your dinner, and that our Mozzarella Madam was a highlight of your evening!

    Loved the service and the food! I enjoyed the smaller portions it was perfect for one person to eat or mix and match/share. We sat at the bar which provided small space but a more personal setting with the bartender. Drinks where amazing. We were celebrating a friend graduating from college and will definitely come back for dinner in the future.

    Our server was horrible – couldn't explain the menu & communicated to us slowly & without confidence. We ordered drinks to start off, which the bartender also took his time on, & our serve couldn't even set it down on our table. Food arrived promptly but we were unamused with the taste & quality. Lamb pasta that everyone raved about was removed from the menu. Beautiful location & setting but has difficult parking. Closer to closing time, they turned all the lights on & ruined the ambience. It was like being kicked out. We were double charged for some items on our bill & had to wave him down to get it fixed. The espresso martini was strong & delicious, but the spritzy & classic drinks tasted like cleaning supplies.

    Hotel and restaurant had a very cool vibe. Service was outstanding. It was very loud inside of the restaurant - I wish there was some sound dampening. We ordered the Agnolotti Del Plin and the pasta seemed undercooked - it was tough and chewy. We also ordered the Risotto and was very underwhelmed by it. Cocktails and the Focaccia were fabulous.

    Not my favorite experience. I don’t plan on returning. The menu was as small as the dishes themselves. Almost a tapas vibe. It was mediocre for the price. I asked four times for water as it wasn’t filled when we sat down. I didn’t get water until 50 minutes after we sat. Once I received a drink I was never offered another after finishing the first. Husband and I left hungry and broke.

    We decided to try have the pulled mozzarella salad appetizer - and didn't realize what a show it was - made table side, though it seems pricey it is really worth it - made it a special evening. We shared three pasta dishes and two main courses - it was more than enough for five adults and one child - Branzino and 24 ounce t-bone. Mains are designed to share.

    This is a gorgeous restaurant with wonderful staff and cocktails. The appetizer of focaccia bread and ricotta was wonderful as was the antipasti we had. So imagine our disappointment when the entrees were beyond bad. I had the half chicken and it tasted flavorless. My husband had pasta that was awful. It was bland and tasted like something you would serve a toddler who is a picky eater. But for $17. What a disappointment for a meal we were so looking forward to.

    My best dining experience at Lazia ever. We started with the Crudo which just melted in your mouth followed by the carpaccio. It was equally as good. The Canederli ended our journey through the antipasti part of the menu The hand pulled mozzarella salad was mind blowing. The service and cocktails exceeded expectations. Well done! Thanks

    We came to Lazia for dinner for a friends birthday. They treated us to complimentary champagne which scored major points! Also gave us Italian cake after dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. The meal was delicious and the ambiance lovely. My friend ordered the risotto which the waitress said would add some time to our order. Our food did take a while for sure. Maybe because it’s Italian and Europeans don’t rush dinner? We ordered a lovely appetizer and the champagne held us over for dinner. The pasta was delicious too and everyone was pleased with their meals.
