Took my Great Aunt for her 93rd birthday dinner. Wonderful food and great service! The roasted peppers and mozzarella appetizer was outstanding. Chicken livers are also great.

Small quiet and always excellent. Liana does most of the cooking. We are especially fond of the gnocchi and sauteed chicken livers, but every, yes everything, is wonderful. Over a ten year period we have had at least 40 excellent meals. Reasonable corkage so we bring the good stuff. Her list is certainly adequate for most of her clientele but... More

My husband and I happened to be dining at Liana's trattoria for an expected evening of amazing food and wonderful service, as it always is. However, there was one exception to this evening -- it was a diner named Susan L. who chose to be incredibly rude and obnoxious to her waitress, Liana and the other diners in the restaurant....

This was our first visit to Liana's. We went there with friends who have been there previously. Overall, we all enjoyed it. I had the Gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, based on recommendations from other reviewers. It was excellent. My wife had cheese-filled ravioli. They were good, but nothing exceptional. The prices are somewhat high for Italian food. One thing we... More

I understood when I called for table that we had to come early at 6pm. Liana herself was as warm as I remembered and the gnocchi was excellent. Unfortunately our waitress was terrible. She informed us not once, not twice but four times that we had to vacate the table by 8pm. We were made to feel uncomfortable and insignificant.... More

My husband and I were actually looking for another italian restaurant that he had been to and ended up here. It was meant to be. Everything about the restaurant is everything you want in a dining experience. A warm, homey atmosphere, phenomenal service, stellar wine list, outstanding cuisine( all pastas made there). Not cheap but well worth it for a... More

Been here 3 times over the past 10 years.. and just re-discovered it last weekend. I've liked everything I've had here. Its small with just the right level of 'noisy'. The service is friendly, the owner mingles, and the food is all amazing. We shared 4 Apps (including chicken livers..surprising wow) , 4 Main plates (2 fish, veal, shrimp) and... More

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
