We have friends who eat here on a regular basis and rave about it. This was not our experience. We tried it once a year ago and found it to be average. Decided to try it again. Salad and apps we very good. (Be sure to ask for pricing on apps if that is a concern because the ones on... More

4 of us had lunch here and it was "ok", nothing to write home about. Too many tables in too small of a space with zero ambience. A McDonalds has more. Suppose to be favorite of made guys, we did not see any but supposedly you might at night.

Went with four other family members and the food and service was outstanding. Started with calamari (which was a little too thick for us) but cooked well. Three of us had a fish special and it was absolutely fantastic. Lots of fish, scallops, shrimp and calamari in a semi spicy sauce. My wife had a lamb chop which was cooked... More

It was New Haven Restaurant week and we went twice this week with friends.Both visits were very good, but the second visit was more crowded and service was off. Food choices offer a large variety and all appetizers, salads and entrees were excellent. Very nice dining room.

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

We have been dining at Adriana's for past few years and this is the first opportunity that I have had to generate a review. My wife and I went to the restaurant for an early dinner on Monday evening. 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.
