Started off with the Insalata Caprese which was very good and the Panecotto which was watery. Had the Orecchiette Rapa e Salsiccia which was not as good as previous visit. Seemed to be overcooked - watery and mushy. Service was good by multiple staff but a little too chatty. Red Italian wine started at $38/bottle and went up quickly. Good... More

A popular location with long waits, reservations are a must (evn with a reservation there will be wait). Food is Italian fare, both northern and southern. This is not a "red sauce" restaurant, wherein all of the dishes come drowning in red sauce. They make an effort to be creative. The food overall is pretty good. Table and bar seating... More

We ordered appetizers for the table, Panecotto was excellent, Arancini, (3 giant balls) were good , fried calamari was large sliced, fresh and crisp. Cooked perfectly, just the right amount of coating and the key, was served immediately. I had... More

We frequent Adrianas on a regular basis. Long story short. It is still one of the best restaurants in the area. Part of our regular dining group stopped in for Christmas luncheon. As usual, the place was packed with a cross section of locals and area folks. This time we had the John Dory, Seafood pappardelle Fra Diavolo and pappardelle... More

Above and beyond delicious, your stomach will be pleased!!! Adriana's is a incredible family operated restaurant. My family has been visiting Adriana's for years and we have never been let down. On our most recent visit we had a party of 7 and every person was extremely satisfied with their appetizers and meal. The rice balls are out of this... More
