Liana's Trattoria on Tunxis Hill Rd Fairfield, CT
Went here on the recommendation of a friend. It's a very small place and it can get a bit noisy but the food is worth it. It was packed when we arrived at 8:30 on a friday night. We shared 3 apps, zucchini rollatini(very light and fresh tasting), chicken livers(my dining companions loved them but they are not my style), and long hot peppers(they were eaten up but I did not ask how they were). I had the gnocchi with meat sauce, the gnocchi was light as air, I have never had them like this before.I was full by the time my meal arrived but these went down very easily. The meat sauce was very fresh and simple. The 3 of us shared the coconut cake. It was unusual, seemed closer to a macaroon than cake. My pieces were very moist but my dining companion on the other side of the table said his pieces closer to the edge were drier. I will be going back here again.
