Liana has been perfecting the preparation and presentation of her authentic Italian dishes for more than a dozen years in this off the beaten path Trattoria. While service staff come and go - Liana is there day-in and day-out to greet, converse and please all who dine inside her special spot. She doesn't change things up to suit the fad... More

If I had to order my last meal, I would order one serving of each item on the menu and two servings of each item on the dessert menu. Best eating bar in Connecticut.

Love this little trattoria! So quaint warm and inviting, The food is superb and I feel like I've been whisked away to Italy. The location is a little off the beaten track so we who have found it feel very special.

Liana outdoes herself time after time. Her appetizers are wonderful and the paccheri (pasta) is not to be missed. Her secondi, whether fish, poultry, meat, or vegetarian, are always memorable. And the desserts!! Our favorites are her plum tart and her wedding cake -- don't miss them!

We've recently just relocated to the area and were in search if good local spots. We had read the reviews on this place and had to try it. Boy were we disappointed. It took 25 minutes to get sparkling water delivered to the table, they delivered the wrong entree, service was poor and the food was well...just ok. This is... More

The gnocchi is the best I've ever had! Great little restaurant with fantastic food and service. You are treated first class every time.

We have been coming to Liana's for the past five years. The physical space is small, not unlike some of our favorite haunts in Manhattan. Liana is a charming host and a magnificent chef. Her specials are worth trying and her plum cake in season reminds me of my late mother's cherised recipe. Her pasta is perfect -- try the... More

Pasta was good but not fresh. Veal was a bit dry. Artic char was ok. At $30 an entre I would have expected better. The lack of wines by the glass also was a disappointment.

We know of Liana back to the 1980's when she was at Pasta Nostra in South Norwalk. We have been coming here for years. We started coming less frequently because the menu was stagnant. Everything was always excellent but it never seemed to change. Liana also had gotten agressive with her corkage fees at $27.50, which is high for the... More

We recently had dinner at Liana's with our family who lives in Fairfield. We all shared the eggplant rollatini appetizer which was excellent. The gnocchi was fluffy and light and was served either with a tomato based or a gorgonzola sauce. Both were very good. Someone in our group had pasta with sausage, peppers and meat sauce, and someone else... More
