It took us months to find Liana's some years back. The address is on Tunxis Hill Road but you actually have to turn left OFF Tunxis Hill to get to 591 Tunxis Hill. However, once we found it, we made a beeline to Liana's whenever we wanted to be pampered and eat great Italian food at the same time. Chances... More

I have heard nothing but great things about this restaurant. I have never felt more unwelcome at a restaurant in my life. I may give it one more chance, but I think you should make every customer feel at home no matter what!! Also a bit bright for dinner.

Liana's is such a special place. My parents LOVE coming here, and they're always greeted by the bar staff and owners with a familial warmth. Everything is homemade and delicious. Liana is such a nice woman. Great wine selection, full bar. Highly recommend, reservations are a must. The place is small and gets very full!

Liana's is hands-on, owner operated, a tiny little restaurant that serves AMAZING food, mostly Italian. Liana hand prepares these Italian dishes that rival anything you'll find in Manhattan. Do yourself a favor and begin with an appetizer. My favorite is the chicken livers (YES, chicken livers); none better anywhere; served with crusty bread in an incredible sauce. As for entrees,...

This is a very special place indeed. The owner is a very special lady and the food is always special and delicious. Liana often comes and mingles with they patrons. Service is amazing and you never leave hungry. A little out of the way but well worth the trip!

Nothing special about this place except for the atmosphere...was served dessert with "fresh" strawberries that appeared to have be frozen and recently thawed--they were pale pink. Have eaten here multiple times, and when an owner deceives about the food, it's time to move on.

We've been coming here for years. I've even written good reviews. Its popularity has out paced itself. Liana has a problem with reservations. Twice we've had reservations and twice we've had to wait an inordinate amount of time to be seated. This time was the last time. We arrived five minutes prior to our 7:30 reservation. We we told "you're... More

It is understandable that those who have enjoyed this little gem are reluctant to talk about it. I am torn too. It is a small space with a limited number of linen clad tables and really good food. We have lived in this town and never knew this existed for years, but the secret is out. There is nothing pretentious... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary meal at Liana's. She had 2 great vegetarian options on the daily special menu ( cauliflower soup, and the beet ravioli). I had the mussels with black pepper and lemon as an appetizer, and really enjoyed my linguine with calamari. Most time linguine dishes like this have little flavor but Liana's was... More

My fiancée and I went out to dinner tonight, hoping to find a new favorite place. We were highly disappointed. My fiancée ordered the ravioli of the day- cheese. He chose to have it with the meat sauce. What he received was seven small squares of layered noodle, with hardly any filling. The sauce was marinara, not meat. It was... More
