Good Italian Food

Just like the title says, food was good and staff were friendly and pleasant. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere to it and on a sunny evening they open up one entire wall out onto the street.

We had lunch at the Adriatic. My friend had a reasonably priced lobster salad with LOTS of lobster and I had the swordfish tacos. Both were good and filling and the service was good. This is not the place for one's caffeine craving, though. We had weak, but good iced tea and ordinary coffee. Fortunately, there are plenty of coffeeshops... More

My wife and I stopped here for a late night drink and were considering a snack before the kitchen closed. My martini was only average, but the friendliness of the staff made up for it. The waitress even offered us free bread and oil since my wife and I could not agree on an appetizer. Well worth a stop.

The food here is really special. The cavatelli is transcendent. They really know what they're doing. If you want to treat yourself with a really nice dinner accompanied with friendly and professional service, this is your spot. Saw a party come in just for the tiramisu so I naturally had to bring some home. If somebody discovers how they make... More

We had dinner there with friends based on their recommendation. On a warm Friday evening about 7:30 PM, the place was jumping with 30-40 somethings, all talking at maximum sound levels! Maybe it is a generational problem. Back to the food and service: I had the cavatelli, labeled on the menu as "spicy". I tried it, since I enjoy spicy... More

Had a wedding rehearsal dinner there. The room was beautiful. The food was superb. The wine recommendations were perfect. And the wait staff went above and beyond the call of duty. The event was flawless.

We were a group of 12 on a Friday night, but this wasn't a problem for the experienced staff which was great. Our food arrived in a timely manner, our waiter was friendly and funny, and the food delicious. Not one complaint from anyone in the group, which was great since there were so many of us. My dish was... More

I happen to live across the street from this wonderful restaurant. I first went to it while visiting friends in Salem, MA. I, now, live here and have not stopped going to the Adriactic. The food is exceptional, as well as, their service. Always a smile from the excellent wait staff and bar crew. I recommend the eggplant rollantini appetizer,... More

We enjoyed a romantic evening and delightful dinner here on a chilly November night. We enjoyed an exquisite calamari appetizer as we pondered our entrée choices over a glass of wine. My wife selected the eggplant and I chose the salmon. The presentation was picturesque, the portions were plentiful and well prepared. Our server , Ryley, was prompt, polite ,... More
