large selection of very good, not too greasy, doughnuts. Also serves lunch, mostly soup, salads and sandwiches. Good Coffee and attentive staff. Get the jelly stick if you are hungry or do not plan on eating a meal for quite awhile.

Liuzzi Gourmet Food Market

Reviewed By Catherine P - New Haven

Excellent selection of all things Italian from soup to nuts, literally. Meats, fine lunch meats and cheeses, breads, pastas..and the prepared food is awesome (although pricey). Many options to bring home to prepare or make life easy and get it already prepared. The staff are ok, sometimes I feel like they are doing me a favor. Overall you will be very happy after visiting here.

Modern Apizza

Reviewed By Sarah B

I enjoyed the pizza, but I don't really understand the hype. It's like most brick oven pizza I've had before. It's good, but not overly special.

Mickey's

Reviewed By jaseaton - Silver Spring, Maryland

It looks like eating outdoors is a big part of the Mickey's experience in warm weather months, but we were meeting in early January at the tail end of a brutal cold spell, so everyone was hunkered indoors. A warm semi-sports bar, semi-gourmet restaurant. I got the goat cheese and pepper ravioli, someone else got spaghetti bolognese, and our third got salmon. Everyone finished everything on their plates and seemed satisfied. The noise level was low enough toward the back for comfortable conversation. Our waitress was excellent.

Bellinis Italian Cuisine and Pizza

Reviewed By vhanks

Visited this restaurant for a company celebration. Bellinis did not disappoint. Very well maintained restaurant with great staff. The food was excellent. Huge portions that were very satisfying. Our entire table left with to go bag.

Drinks were amazing, not one complaint there.

We had an absolute great time with our server Gina. What an amazing personality. Thank you for taking such great care of us.

Definitely recommend this place for meetings, gatherings, celebrations, (there is a private) nights out. It's ok for family dining. We were very happy with our choice.

Thank you Bellinis for a wonderful night dining!

Caseus

Reviewed By didr - Connecticut

We had a wonderful meal for a family gathering. Excellent menu and wine list. The environment is crowded but, in its own way, quite romantic. The service was efficient. Lots of choices for small, medium, or large meals. Prices are on the high side, but the quality of the cheeses supports charging more. Reservations looked to be an absolute necessity.

Great small plates to share, sandwiches, and full plates. The fried chickpeas were so good we had to try making them at home! Really clever combination of ingredients. The Gen'l Tso's Cauliflower is a great take on a roasted vegetable with a fun flavors.

The fried shrimp sandwich was very well done and devoured quickly. The pork belly Bahn Mi was similarly well seasoned but I could only handle 1/2 of it! It heated up nicely the next day.

Loved the beer menu - extensive. The waitress was excellent at sensing our indecision and helped with allowing us samples.

I cannot wait to go back and try more of the appetizers.

Ludal Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Jon B

I have been cooking professionally
For 15 years
Problem with restaurants is owners don’t know what there doing.
Very few have legitimate cooking education business experience and more.
Look at this restaurants ratings 10 percent of the people that rated this Resturant rated it terrible that’s pretty Sad.
This is my 6 time there because our friend wanted to go
3 times I ordered steak and it was terrible
Their cooks don’t know how to cook NY Strip.
2 times I ordered veal parmigiana
It was paper thin dry and chewy
That’s it I will never go again.
There is only one decent Italian Resturant in North Haven Wallingford and it is in Wallingford
Sorry North Haven

Ixtapa Grill

Reviewed By treylew - New Haven, CT

Everything about my evening here was average. The atmosphere, the service, the food. Nothing bad but nothing great either. They took our drink order then delivered complimentary chips and salsa. The salsa was somewhat bland. I would've rather paid to have good salsa and chips. We ordered the ground beef nachos. It was the smallest amount of nachos I've ever seen in my life. Definitely not worth it. I ordered the steak fajita. That was pretty good but the rice and beans were pretty tasteless. I've had much better Mexican food in the area. I don't think I'll be back.

Reviewed By Thea1201 - North Haven, Connecticut

Well prepared and tender steak is just one of tye many delicious options. The french onin soup is delicious, especially on anchilly evening. They salad is served in a chilled dish which makes it perfect. Ifnyou can save room for desert. They offer wonderful choices. This is my go to place for a special meal.
