fresh ingredients and attention to detail add up to a great dining experience. We had the stuffed squash flowers and seafood salad to start and veal Milanese and scallops. Everything was well-prepared and delicious Now for the ambience - carpeting or draperies to absorb the noise Too many tables in a room without windows was a little claustrophobic, Go later... More

Returned here after about a year to find that the food is still very good, we had the meatballs appetizer and panecotto which were excellent, the veal Adriana and veal principessa were very good, as was the bolognese and a special with filet of beef, shrimp and pasta. We were disappointed in the bread served, it was dry. Otherwise, the... More

I've been coming to Adriana's for many years now and it just keeps getting better and better. I have my favorites but EVERYTHING on the menu is superb! The portions are huge and we always have enough for a second meal the next day. My girls love the sauce on the pasta which tastes like our own home made sauce.... More

Owner refused to let a veteran temporarily park his car in their lot after suffering a panic attack from a fireworks show. He was not drunk, he never entered their business, was simply sitting in his car taking a break. Owner came out and spoke to him, vet said he just needed to sit for a minute and leave. Owner...

I had never heard of Adriana's until recently, despite having lived in the New Haven area for over 30 years. It feels unfortunate that I never experienced it before this summer! In a city that has an overabundance of Italian restaurants, Adriana's stands out for both superb food and excellent service. Located in a run-down area of the city, it... More

It is worth a trip from New Haven from anywhere for this dining experience. You should make a reservation and if you can, request Geoffrey as your server - though if you can't get him, all the staff is well above average - they are all attentive and happy to make your visit one to remember. Everything from cocktails to... More

Our friend has lived in New Haven over 30 years but just heard about Adriana's. Located in a decidedly low-end neighborhood (the parking lot has a guard) but well worth the trip. We ordered too much, given the abundance of temptations and the hefty servings, and had tasty leftovers for breakfast and lunch. Insalata di Pesce and Vitello Principessa (prosciutto,... More
