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.

My wife and I used to eat here frequently years ago, and haven't been there in a while. But, a business dinner was held there and I was interested to see how it has changed. There was about 12 of us, and the service was prompt and courteous. We ordered wine to start for the group ( there is a... More

My family and I went out for dinner last weekend for my sisters birthday and will certainly be returning. The service was fast and attentive, and the food was fabulous, especially their sauce. Recommended if you're in the New Haven area!!
