This is a great restaurant located in teh heart of downtown Salem, MA. The food is fantastic - the grilled octopus was simply the best I have ever had outside of Tuscany, Italy. Delicate and delicious! The grilled flat bread was wonderful and the home-made pasta was great. They have a nice wine list - be sure to ask for... More

This has become our "go to" restaurant. The food is great and the staff is well versed in dealing with gluten free requests. They have GF pizza, but the thing I love is the pasta. And don't miss the greek salad - it is unlike any I have ever had.

Excellent grilled octopus and soup. I was feeling in the mood for seafood, and the fresh grilled fish, and main course "Brodetto del Adriatico" (a fish stew) was divine. Wines by the glass were of good quality. Friendly staff, and a pleasant atmosphere. It was not open for lunch, which surprised us.

On a beautiful spring evening, what better than to sit outside with a bottle of good wine (recommended by the restaurant since our selection wasn't available - excellent quality and the price was right), an interesting menu, an attentive but not hovering server? We shared some wonderful pastas. One of the best meals I've had in Salem; our first visit,... More

Stopped by for wine and appetizer of the meatball kind...wine list and bartender were knowledgable and kind to a solo traveler. Loved it so much that I returned next day for full entree. Btw, veal saltimboca do I need to say much more? Tender, tasty and so delicious. Like the meatball dish the night before AMAZING! Wish I lived nearby....

Ate at Adriatic since they had a grilled squid appetizer; yummy; but the shell fish stew was wonderful and the nicely grilled fish came with a nice mix of veggies we were looking for something that was not standard fare and this place delivered.

Thrilled to find this restaurant favorite opened with seating on Mothers Day and again we're not disappointed. Food and service always a pleasure and would highly recommend.

We went as a group of 4 for Valentines night this past weekend and couldn't be more thrilled. The couple we went with had been before and raved so we had to try. We got there early and were just going to have drinks while we waited but the hostess was able to sit us 3o mins early! Our fold... More

Have dined at the Adriatic several times in the last year and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience every time. Excellent food and desserts, a high level of service and comfortable atmosphere. Menu prices reflect the level of quality and service.
