Sunday, August 28th – Dinner On the last night of our “visit the cousins” weekend trip to Connecticut, we met two cousins (brothers) and their significant others for dinner in New Haven. They chose one of their favorite Italian eateries: Adriana’s at 771 Grand Avenue. The restaurant was lovely, warm and homey. Our server, Janine, could not have been nicer.... More

My "Insalata Di Pesce" (Cold seafood with celery, fresh diced tomatoes and lemon vinaigarette) has to be a dish that is... More

Adriana's is a solid traditional Italian restaurant in Wooster Square in New Haven. I like it because it is old school and has decent food. The portions are huge but the taste was meh. Fun for the atmosphere and the professional and friendly wait staff are a kick.

Went there for dinner last night. Kind of a mixed experience. They were fairly busy for a Saturday, but we still were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation, so that was good. Place was packed and rather noisy, thanks to two large tables close to ours. Our waiter Mike was prompt and friendly. The best dish of the day... More

Spare yourself the disappointment. This used to be a great restaurant over a decade ago. Went here for a birthday celebration. Nothing was pleasantly remarkable about the food, not even the bread or salad. The meal was actually worse.
