Great old school with a new twist

This is a traditional throw back place of old but with new menu item twists. Come hungry but noway you will finish your dinner. Large portions cooked to perfection. You will not find a friendlier staff . In the area it a must try.

We were in the area and stopped here for lunch last week and it was a real treat. First of all we were warmly welcomed, seated immediately and our service was top notch. But the food takes the starring role! They served a little complimentary treat of fresh cut up marinated veggies...ours included red and yellow peppers, celery and baby... More

The Holiday Party was perfect from start to finish. Adriana's was conveniently located to our place of work in New Haven and had lots of on site parking. The restaurant was packed but that didn't keep our waiter from providing us with exceptional service. The appetizers were outstanding and lots of variety. The portions were huge and our party of...

We attended a dinner party the day after Christmas... all I can say is wow! As a first timer, I could not resist the "appetizer" portion, which I had mistaken for dinner of rice balls, sausage with broccoli rabe, prosciutto, cheeses, calamari, not to be outdone by the amazing wheel of cheese with the delicious pasta filling.... all this before...

Arranged by my sister-in-law, we had Thanksgiving dinner here while visiting my brother-in-law who was in a play at the Long Wharf theatre. The amount of turkey --- a whole breast and wing --- could have fed the three of us that were there for dinner. We took home another three meals, at least! The turkey was juicy and very... More

Everything is amazing. Compares if not better than any New York City high end restaurant, and I eat in the city 3 times a week.It's much lower in price too. Service can be a tiny bit slow at times but then again the place is always busy. Try the veal chop, it will feed 4 easily!! I have not had... More

While visiting my home office in Milford we all went out to dinner at this place. I always try the spaghetti and meatballs when eating at an Italian restaurant for the first time and this one did not disappoint. Everyone at our table loved whatever they had and the server was really "Johnny on the spot" all evening. Great place.
