The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's deal employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $15, you get $30 worth of Tuscan cuisine at La Luna Ristorante in Branford.
La Luna Ristorante sates Tuscan cravings with its homemade pastas, sandwiches, seafood, and more. Midday munchers can anchor incisors to the lunch menu's offerings, such as the veal parmigiana sandwich, which caps a veal cutlet with a jaunty tam of mozzarella and marinara sauce ($9), and calamari alla napolitano, a curly bed of deep-fried calamari adorned with pignoli nuts and cherry peppers ($8). Dinner-craving robbers can abscond with precious dishes of manicotti ($17) and fettuccini a La Luna, which sautées lobster tail and meat with shallots and scallions before setting it afloat in a creamy vodka-sauced sea ($22). Palette-pleasing wines by the glass or bottle make excellent mealtime companions, and live music on weekends keeps ears and eyes occupied from their ongoing feud over facial property lines.
- The seafood is delicious and delicately fried with little or no grease. Pairing the fish up with the rare roast beef from the carving station creates a surf and turfer's delight. The omelets are excellent and prepared to order and the homemade ravioli are delicious in their covering of alla vodka sauce. – Paul Prims, examiner.com
- They make their own ravioli's and pastas and the sauces are great. I've heard that people have dreams about the penne al la vodka. I adore the sun dried tomato escargot. – Tracee D., Yelp
