I've been going to Ludal since they opened and I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal there. My wife goes quite frequently with friends for Ladies Night. This past Friday was no exception. We met friends there for dinner and every entree looked good. I had Ahi Tuna which was outstanding. The preparation and presentation was excellent.... More

This place would have reached 5 stars on my chart..if the service was better...however if you are looking for great Italian food and you have never tried this place then you are missing out. My friend had the Salmon Luda over spinach and it was delicious....I had the special Veal Ossobucco....and it was heaven. It has a extremely loyal following... More

The staff is friendly & the service is great! The garlic knots that they serve before dinner are amazing! They have a great selection of martinis... More

We had the calamari appetizer- it was tender and flavorful ! The portion sizes for both the appetizers and entrees were large. The garlic knots and dipping sauce were superb! I would suggest reservations - it was very busy on a Saturday evening. I will definitely visit again.

Great menu choices, as well as nightly specials. Service has improved but restaurant can be a little crowded at times and loud. However it's still worth the visit.

My friend Dia and I were overwhelmed with the large amounts of exquisitely prepared food that just kept coming to our table. The size of the portions made for more take-home than we could consume! We ate to our hearts' content: Stuffed Oysters, GIANT Crabcake, Broccoli Rab & Sausage, and those were just the appetizers! Our meals were (mine) Ludal's... More

If you are looking for an Italian restaurant with good food and service, Ludal is the place to visit. My friend and I ordered the hot combination for an appetizer and all four items were delicious. For entrees, we ordered the zuppe pesce in the red sauce and the gnocchi and sausage dish. Both meals were not just full of... More

Great value, excellent ambiance, and great wine selection. The meal choices and quality for the Ladies Night special on Tuesdays was impressive. Off Street parking was safe and Free!
