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...More

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...More

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...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...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....More

Like formerexpatCT, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. Our food was "okay" ... the gnocchi that is praised so highly was light and fluffy, but rather bland in flavor. Pasta with aglio e olio and broccoli rabe again, was good, but nothing...More

My husband and I just tried Liana's based on the great reviews. We left wondering what others saw that we missed. First of all, not only is it small---the tables are really packed close together--but it's VERY noisy. And in my opinion the food is...More
