    When we arrived, the table was reserved and ready. The service was impeccable at all times. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco and they had run out of coolers. However, our server took the initiative to take the bottle to the bar's fridge and was very diligent refilling our glasses. The Paccheri Amalfi were superb; the portion was on the small side but very filling, and the sauce was subtle enough to let the shrimp shine through. The bone-in veal chop with mushrooms was out of this world.

    I have a thing about Italian food; especially pasta. If I am going to have a plate of noodles and meats they better be fresh. The food was better than I anticipated. I had a bowl of lentil soup to start, split a salad with my girlfriend then had a bowl of their pasta bolognese. It was just enough food, pasta was delicious. I met the nice owners and was surprised the small restaurant had been there for 7 year's. I pass it every week. Glad I stopped in.

    Great neighborhood find! Good food, very nice people and small but quaint surroundings. Veal scallopine was delicious. Salmon dish as well. Carpaccio was a work of art. Real tiramasou. What is not to like?

  • Best Italian restaurant in Orlando
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/24/2014
    This is by far the best Italian restaurant that I have tried in Orlando. The food is authentic Italian, not Italian-American. I have been here 5 or 6 times and have never had a dish that I didn't enjoy. You can't go wrong with any of the pasta dishes; my favorite is the linguini with clams.

  • A disappointment this time
    HembryBembry
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    Adriatico is one of my favorite restaurants, and, lucky for me, is only about 6 blocks from my house. On this occasion I spent all day looking forward to enjoying my dinner at this neighborhood gem. I have dined there a dozen times, always enjoying the food, the atmosphere and the attentive but not smothering service. This time, however, my guest and I were disappointed: Both of entrees were quite salty! Our server said the chef doesn't use extra salt in the preparation of the food. But he also said we weren't the first to make that complaint. I don't know how the salt got there, but there was way too much of it. Thankfully, this was a first for me. Next time, before ordering, I'll throw salt over my shoulder. Just for luck.

    This is truly the best Italian restaurant in the Orlando area. A very authentic, family-style restaurant. I definitely recommend the calamaretti and carciofini mamma mia for appetizers, gnocchi bolognese for the entree, and berry pannacotta for dessert. The owner, Rosetta, is a sweetheart, and she talks to and gets to know every guest that sets foot in the door. Everything was amazing, and I will definitely be back!

    I know it is a family restaurant, but this was my second visit, but I do not think the food was very good. Cream sauce good, but very small shrimp w/ pasta for $18.50 was not fair value; chicken dish was ho-hum bland.

  • Better four than two
    DineoftenVIP
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    Couples get seated in the middle of the room so it's best to go with four people in your party for the best experience. Over zealous waiters bump into the couple tables far too often. Wait staff likes to push service to get more turns so you have to slow them down or you'll be out in less than an hour. Food is great and makes up for any negativity.

    My wife and I love Adriatico. We went there to celebrate Valentines Day last week, and it was as good as always. The Caesar salad was fresh and perfectly seasoned, and my grouper was delicious, as was my wife's salmon. We can recommend Adriatico very enthusiastically. It is fantastic.

    We enjoyed last week so much that we brought four friends with us this time. The food did not disappoint...every dish was relished and every bite was consumed. Last week, there were very few other diners. This week, it was packed. I was glad we made a reservation! The noise level was a bit high with the max capacity, but we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will be back.

    We met another couple for dinner here. All four entrees were very good. Service was attentive, but not disruptive. It was too cold to eat outside this evening, but we have done that before and enjoyed the College Park scene very much. We will go back to Adriatico's. Enjoyed the evening and the food was excellent.

    Had never been there before and wanted to go someplace close to the Bob Carr Performing center since we were seeing a play after dinner. From the minute we walked in, to the time we left, the service was wonderful and the food is amazing! We had my elderly parents with us and they too loved every minute of it! Would highly recommend going here!!

    I found the food excellent as I expected. Outside, though, the noise from the other restaurant (the one with picnic tables) is terrible. I must say the price was high. I did not expect this. And the waiter was far too talkative. He is a nice young person but he should not talk so much. In other words, keep him in line. Thank you for the fine food.

    As many of the other reviews state, Adriatico is a great find. The baby artichoke appetizer tasted just like Grandma's ... and the Bolognese sauce is incredible. Marco suggested a Sangiovese wine to go with the pasta that was superb. Great table service. Had lunch here a few days later and the food was just as great and reasonably priced! Highly recommended

    Orlando has been missing truly high quality no pretense Italian for years. We have it back again! This is an excellent neighborhood restaurant on the Edgewater Drive strip. The owner is present, friendly, and only wants to put out the best food and provide the best service. Servers are knowledgeable on the menu, helpful and attentive. The wine list isn't enormous, but it's good and won't break the bank. The food provides the biggest "WOW" factor. Real Italian food done right. It is not American Italian drowned in cheese and straight from your grocer's freezer. The gnocchi is unbelievably light and delicious. The sauces are hand crafted. The fish is fresh, and the house burrata is skillfully made. I'll be back - time and again!

    Adriatico has been a local favorite of ours since they opened a number of years ago. The owners are of Italian/Sicilian descent and their food is authentic. We have always had good service and the food is consistently well -prepared. It's a small, hidden gem in Orlando's College Park area. Definitely worth a try.
