My husband's buddy has talk about Adriana's forever and we finally experienced it. We had fried calamari which was excellent - very crisp and not chewy. We also had osso bucco and that was delicious. I had sea bass. It was a huge piece of fish and it was sooo good. The bread was just o.k. For dessert, we shared... More

Was reintroduced to this stand-by after 20 years. Yes ambiance is a little lacking, and service is a little slow, BUT the food is spectacular. Old school well done!

The restaurant is in a New Haven location you would not expect, but when you walk through the doors, be prepared! No only is the greeting most welcoming, but the atmosphere is very warm and inviting. When crowded it can be noisy. The food was excellent. The salmon dish was the best I ever had. this is my second visit... More

Upon entering this restaurant the man at the door was very rude. The new remodeling was not thought out very well. My husband had his chair hit constantly by waiters serving tables. I had to literally get up to allow a woman seated behind me, get to the restroom. There are 2 dining areas, one is an open floor plan... More

As an italian lady, I can say this restaurant is the best so far! Great food, fresh vegetables, fresh fish, and a handsome chef who greets you politely! We`re going back to eat there the incoming week.
