This is a staple for New Haven. Not really the best location but easily accessible from major highways and good parking at the site. Reservations might be a wise thing but you can also find a spot at the bar. Once settled then prepare for a feast. Even with the appetizers the portions are quit generous. The seafood salad is...

This has been my favorite place for years. I travel a lot but I think of the food and staff here everyday. The Spaghetti alla Putanesca is so good that I almost never order pasta in other restaurants; I've been spoiled. Swordfish Oreganata is my pick at least once a week. Starving? Get the Veal Chop. I like it Piccata.... More

Ten of us met at Adriana's for a Sunday family dinner. Waitstaff was very accommodating and attentive. We split two appetizers- meatballs and broccoli rabe and sausage. The meatballs were good and the broccoli rabe and sausage was excellent. We ordered a variety of main courses- fish, veal and pasta. The portions are very large. Everyone enjoyed their dinners except... More

The food, service and atmosphere were good. The clams Impepata were fairly large and tough but the wine and garlic sauce was okay. The Veal Adriana was good but I did not care for the Grand Marnier sauce. The veal itself was excellent. Would return but not go out of my way.

Everyone raved about this place, saying it was "a must". First, the parking is terrible, all the cars are packed in and double parked... We had a reservation for a friend's birthday, which they knew about in advance. We were then placed at a crowded table where the waitstaff and other patrons constantly bumped into us. We sat with no... More

After seeing the amazing reviews I figured I must try it. Well, the waiter ruined our dining experience, he was without any knowledge, wasn't listening to what we wanted. He was then rushing for us to pay even though the restaurant was open for another hour. The food is good, but so are many other places locally. NOT the best... More

Had a very enjoyable anniversary dinner! Everything we ordered was excellent with ample portions. Enough to take home and eat again the next day. Fresh figs with buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes was great! Pasta dishes were awesome! Will definitely return in the near future!
