It was my first time at Adriana's. Been hearing about it since I set foot in New Haven. I ordered the swordfish special for lunch. OK, I never have trouble cleaning a plate, but the amount of fish was overwhelming! I ate just over half and had to stop. Quantity aside, the food was well prepared, tasty, and great quality....

I was introduced to this amazing New Haven restaurant 3 years ago and have been back many times. It is THE best Italian I every have had; the staff is amazing and the portions unbelievable. Your one meal will feed you the rest of the week!

This is my "go to" place for an excellent dining experience. Had the pork chips, peppers and potatoes. Excellent. Other diner had the Salmon, about a 2 lb piece with a reduced balsamic vinegar glaze. Everything was perfect. Just wish it was not so close to da hood.

Back again to Adriana's in New Haven and once again I can't believe the food and service ! Unreal , couldn't get better in NYC. The best Italian in CT! Gambrel with pancetta and spinach I off the charts!

As you can tell I love food and Great service. Well here is one restaurant that put out great Italian food.. I ordered the veal cutlet , nice and tender , cut with a fork.. My Caesar salad came with abundance of anchovies , delish. My tiramisu, missed the mark though. Overall , I recommend for traditional Italian..

I hosted a Holiday Party there this week for thirty people. Everything was simply perfect. I worked with Joe on the menu, timing, and overall planning. Joe did an outstanding job. We had family style serving and the stuffed eggplant, calamari, mixed greens salad, chicken and fish were all perfectly served and prepared. The tiramisu is to die for. In... More

The restaurant was packed on Thursday night 12/8/16. We were a party of 4 seated in the bar (the only seating they could provide when I made a reservation on 12/7). No problem. The food was outstanding and the servings are massive. Usually huge servings translate to mediocre food; certainly not the case here!!! Veal chops, Salmon and Sea Bass... More

You will get the best Italian food here but it's very difficult to get a reservation and even when you do there is usally still a significant wait. Worth it though.
