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.

This is by far the best 5 star Italian restaurant I have been to in all my travels. Portions are enough for 2 service is impeccable. A must try if you have never been.

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!!

I consider myself to be a bit of an SME when it comes to Italian food. I live in the Philadelphia area and spend a lot of time in New York City as well and have been to many many fine Italian restaurants. Adriana's is at the highest level of any that I have ever had the pleasure of dining... More

The food is outstanding and true Italian just like being in Italy. Service is wonderful and the presentation and quality can't be beat. If your lucky to have John Carlo... More

Best meal ever! Food was fresh, hot when served and absolutely delicious! Restaurant is very small and Our waiter (Jeff) maybe was snotty and it was obvious we were a bother. The other wait staff was great! Definitely would go back

First visit for lunch during Restuarant Week in New Haven. Food was very good with beautiful presentation, portions were very large, so a cautionary note to be prepared to take leftovers home. Staff was wonderful despite the fact that it was very busy. They were very attentive to our needs and always had a smile on their faces. We are... More

The food was very good. Our party of four had veal and chicken. The house dressing was very good. Bread was fresh. The only thing i didn't like was no handicap parking.
