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..

My wife and I dined here recently as a birthday dinner and found the experience mediocre at best. We had a reservation for the dining room but on our arrival was told that there was no room but we could be seated at a table in the bar. Our table was in the back of the bar next to a... More

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.

We have friends who eat here on a regular basis and rave about it. This was not our experience. We tried it once a year ago and found it to be average. Decided to try it again. Salad and apps we very good. (Be sure to ask for pricing on apps if that is a concern because the ones on... More

4 of us had lunch here and it was "ok", nothing to write home about. Too many tables in too small of a space with zero ambience. A McDonalds has more. Suppose to be favorite of made guys, we did not see any but supposedly you might at night.
