Nice food, terrible service!

Went for a coffee and some cake about 50 min before the Deli attached to the restaurant shuts. There were 3 staff and only 1 family that was buying ice cream. 2 staff were busy tidying things away, the other one was serving the family and chatting with them. We were standing at the counter for... read more

A rather busy place even on Thursday night - you have to wait for a table. But there is nice inside waiting area and drinks can be booked while you wait. Food is definitely very good. Service is very Italian, so you have to be ready for waiter to behave as you old friend (which for unprepared person may be... More

The Good - didn't book, went in on spec, offered a seat then after about 10 minutes escorted to a table, ordered drinks which arrived after five minutes. The Poor - When drinks arrived, we were not asked if we were ready to order (which we were) instead we were ignored for a further 15 minutes (even though our menu's... More

my husband and I were regular visitors to Adriano's however always found the staff quite rude and abrupt so stopped eating there, however 2 years later we thought we would give it a try again just to see if things had changed! We arrived to an almost empty restaurant and were told to wait in the lounge until a table... More

Always forget about this restaurant tucked away just off Gosforth high street. Called in on a sunny afternoon, very bright and airy. Lovely food and excellent service.

We were at Adriano's for celebrating our daughter's finishing medical school and starting her first job. Keeping with previous experiences, we had a very enjoyable evening here. The staff were attentive and helpful, and suggested just the right drinks for the occasion :). The quality of the food was excellent and the ambience great though the seating arrangement is perhaps... More

Arrived here for our booking at 7.30pm. The place was already very busy and although we were seated pretty quickly it took ages for anyone to take our orders. My main course came at just after 9pm and by that time I was past being hungry! The food was tasty but my risotto was a very small portion and not... More

Booked a table for 4 and arrived on time. Impression that they were way over stretched and this was evident in the time we waited. The food was Ok but not value for money and we waited over an hour for main course. Very small portions of pasta dish and risotto but the pizza was decent. On paying the bill... More
