“Great Surprise.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by several people. Many times I'm disappointed but in this case I was not. Food was excellent and the place was busy! It is the type of restaurant you would expect in New Haven, Hartford or Stamford - not a smaller town like North Haven. It was packed so be sure to make reservations.

“A really, REALLY nice place!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

What a refreshing difference from all the others! Yes, you could describe this place as an 'Italian restaurant,' but it's very special. For starters, the decor is (to my taste, anyway) smashing. It feels like you're in a sophisticated club in NYC, not in quiet little North Haven. Somehow the place seems big and posh, but intimate at the same time. The menu reaches far beyond those of neighborhood places, with many new dishes and excellent renderings of the old favorites. All the food is fresh, beautifully presented by a great waitstaff, and delicious. This is THE place to go for that special meal. I find it possible to eat extremely well for $25 - 35 per person. Yes, you COULD spend more, but you don't need to.

“Best of NH”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

In the town of North Haven Ludal is the clear par excellence. Expect to spend 50 to 60 per head. Unlike many other places the wait staff has a depth of knowledge about the menu and preparation. We have had hits and misses in the appetizers so stick to the basics. The veal shank is awesome, steaks ok, and well prepared seafood all around. For dessert the creme brûlée is fantastic, the tiramisu ok. The good and plenty coffee and latte very good and memorable. Make sure you have reservations as this the island of excellence in town.

“Ludal Italian Restaurant, North Haven, CT”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The apps and entrees are always consistently delicious, top quality and portioned appropriately ! A most outstanding and special Italian menu, reasonably priced. A welcoming and fine dining atmosphere. Often a business crowd for lunch but one never feels that the place is too busy for dining pleasure. Definitely worth a stop off Interstate 91.
