“superb sunday fayre.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I hadn't been here for a few years, but wanted to take a friend somewhere special and it was absolutley superb. The two course sunday lunch for £11.95 had a gorgeous selection of top notch food to choose from. We had starters that included Mozarella and Tomato salad, squid and fishcake. the mains were lamb and beef and came with a delicious rich gravy, small but lots of lovely roasties, and a large amount of separate veg, beatuifully cooked and seasoned. The prosecco we drank was a reasonable £20 and very very palatable. The place was packed, but it was the service that stopped me giving this place 5 stars. We had met in the lounge area and when the waiter took us to our table he did not even offer a tray for our drinks let alone offer to carry them for us. not classy epecially since one in our group was a mature lady. Adrianos food is a cut above all the other med restaurants in the area, the service needs to be as well. So saying, i would not hesitate to go back.

“A Pleasant Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We have heard lots about this restaurant over the last year. So on a visit to Gosforth over the weekend we decided to give it a try. However reading some of the adverse comments recently posted on Trip Adviser we were a little worried to say the least. Now maybe the staff had all been to Charm School recently and maybe that it was a Sunday evening and not bursting at the seams helped our experience. But we had a lovely meal .Excellent Pizzas, a lovely red wine Nero D 'Avola, reasonably priced and some lovely puds!

I am prepared to accept that it may have been less ambient on a Friday or Saturday but can only speak as you find. To those of you who came away disappointed give it another try but probably not on a Saturday.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a fantastic place to go for great food and excellent service. Authentic food, a good choice of wines all served by professional staff who understand the meaning of good service.

The modern airy atmosphere with comfortable seating adds to the attraction.
