Wonderful Itailian food

Very attentetive wait staff. Excellent dishes. Love the Cavatelli and broccoli rabe and sausage. Go with a few freinds so you can all try a little something different, it's all good.

My boyfriend took me here for a late valentines day celebration. I was craving shrimp and pasta, but I'm not a fan of red sauce. I told the waiter and they ended up making me a fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and mushrooms, which is not on the menu. It was the best I've ever eaten!

We have been going to Adrianas for years. It never disappoints. It is always busy and for good reason....As a starter, diners get in house made bread and a mixture of celery, red onion and colorful bell peppers in a very tasty vinaigrette. Every meal is thoughtfully prepared and artfully presented. Portions are large and prices are fair. The Jon... More

The Caesar salad was probably the best I've ever had. We followed that by splitting orecchiette with broccoli rabbe which was also very, very good. Finally, I had a veal dish that was amazing. My gf had the stuffed filet which was also excellent. I can't say enough good things about this place. We will be back.

Have been here a couple times since my last review. Both times were perfect. Parking lot in New Haven - key! Also appreciate the security guard. Drinks - their martinis are great and the wine selection broad. Food - cannot get enough. EVERYTHING is delicious and the portions are huge. Best part? Last night, was able to join as part... More

The food, the staff and the ambiance is just perfect. Enjoyed the chicken, veal and fish and can't wait to go back. High quality and well thought out food that is enough for two meals. Needless to say we were able to enjoy our meal again the next day.

What a great restaurant for fine dining. The veal dishes are the best you can find. A little tough to find in New Haven but so worth the effort. Make reservations and bring your appetite

As a born and life-long New Havener and an Italian American, I think I'm qualified to say Adriana's is hands down one of the best Italian restaurants not only in New Haven but the whole New Haven area. I have other places that would make the list. But when you combine food quality, presentation, quantity and service Adriana's wins out.... More

We visited most recently on a Monday for ladies night! The portions are huge and the waitstaff is very attentive. The cold seafood salad, carpaccio, and filet mignon were all delicious. I cannot wait to return.

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.
