“Feels like home!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I just love this restaurant. Everytime I visit I feel like I am eating at my Italian relatives' table! The food is truly Sicilian with light red sauces, fresh seafood and the most amazing appetizers. I have never had a disappointing meal here. The restaurant is small, it is best to have a reservation on the weekends, and try something different everytime you visit. One of my favorite appetizers is the Artichoke with sundried tomatoes in an oil which is absolutely delicious! It is so good you must dip your bread into the oil and eat up every last bit! You will not be disappointed with a meal here - no matter what you order!

“Every item hits the mark”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Have now been twice and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Two of us went mid-week for a light meal and were impressed. Returned recently with a group of six and sampled many items, all of which were excellent. Mid-week was nice and quiet. Saturday was bustling, but that's to be expected at a place that serves authentic food. Nice selection of properly priced Italian wines (tried the Sicilian Nero and a Super Tuscan), and both were delicious. Sauteed calamari, burrata, mussels, pasta vongole, stuffed veal chop, grouper puttanesca - all were terrific, and there is much more to try.

“Longing for a vacation in Italia?”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Take a mini-vacation right here! The chef/owner even imports his huge lemons for his sorbet from Italy. Although the antipasto says it for two, it can easily serve four hungry diners. The grouper was tender and the roasted veggies were al dente. The chicken and penne was perfectly flavorful. The lobster ravioli was smooth and rich, but I would have liked more lobster chunks. The restaurant is small and noisy when full, and reminds me of a little trattoria in a big city, like New York or Chicago. Certainly worth a try whle visiting the College Park region of Orlando.

“One of my best italian cuisine experience in the US”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

We drove to Adriatica from Disney. That was quite a drive, I'd say 40 minutes but so much worth it ! The service is excellent, with great style. The antipasti was beautiful, the vast majority home-made. Our friends had the Osso Bucco, while we feasted on a delicious fish and on some lasagna. The wine list is full of excellent Italian selections. Kids shared pizza and pasta and loved it. We finished with superb tiramisu.
We could feel a great attention to detail and very fresh ingedients in everything we ate. Both owners are from Italy and you can tell they enjoy cooking the best from Italian cuisine!

“Excellent food, authentically prepared, if they had the ingredients, it would be Italy.”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

This restaurant serves delicious food. The preparation is authentic and to order. Little fried on the menu, thankfully.
The pricing is modest for the quality presented.
The room is clean-spotless. Pleasant decor, not 'Italy-ed up' to prove they're Italian. It's a smaller place, but adequate for their volume, maybe 25 tables.
The pace was perfect as it was an after work with work the next day night.
This is my new favorite Italian restaurant. If it were in NY it would be triple the price and there would be lines to get in.
