Adriatico has become my favorite restaurant in Central Florida and is now my go to restaurant. Family run and operated Marco and Rosetta are warm and welcoming and the staff are friendly and well trained. I've spent my entire career in the hotel and restaurant business and Adriatico Trattoria is five star.
I was recently asked where I wanted to celebrate my next birthday and I did not hesitate to say Adriatico Trattoria Italiana.

Enjoyed the prix fixed menu a dining week. The ensalata burrata & filet topped with mushrooms and sauce was tasty & tender. Can’t remember the name of the dessert but it was like a lemon cake. Very rich & divine.

I have been to Adriatico Trattoria Italiana for lunch with friends and hosted my work team for lunch. This was my first dinner visit. The food is awesome! Both if us felt the seafood ranked in the top five that we've ever enjoyed. My salmon was the best I've ever had and my husband's grouper was one of the tastiest in memory. The service is impeccable.

Over the years I've written several reviews on Adriatico all 5 stars. Last year I wrote how our 11 year old grandson, from Minneapolis, said this was his favorite restaurant in Orlando and wanted to go. This year he is 12 and once again when he visited us asked to dine here before dining anywhere else. There are several changes on the menu that make it even better. Genuinely like a visit to Italy.

Took some friends to Adriático for dinner on Saturday night. It was their first time and they were very impressed. Frank was our server and he was excellent. He made us feel very welcome and is very professional. His recommendations were spot on! Everything from appetizers to desserts was fresh and delicious. Chef Marco is a master in the kitchen. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening. We will definitely be back!!!

Adriatico has the best Italian food in Orlando. They put great care in every dish they develop and it shows in all the food they put out. We love it. They have wonderful daily specials in addition to their amazing menu. The staff is wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about this place. The homemade gnocchi melts in your mouth it’s so good. We haven’t had a dish we didn’t like. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentic, delicious Italian meal.

Cute little store front style restaurant. Serves only beer and wine. Service was fine....BUT, if you’re looking for quality authentic Italian food this place is NOT the place for you. Very disappointed in the food quality. Olive Garden’s food is better than this place and that’s not good...poor value...Cute spot though!

We were greeted by the owner and we sat outside. She was super nice and we enjoyed having conversation with her. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. The other owner (husband) enjoys spending his time in the kitchen cooking all of the meals himself. We were very pleased at the quality and flavor of the food. Everything is basically made in house and tastes like it.. delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and time spent here and we will definitely be back.

As always with Italian food, it’s about the recipes and this husband-and-wife operation has them. A huge antipasto plate to share offers a colorful mix of meats, cheese and vegetables to start. We then had the kitchen split for us an order of bucatini with a flavorful blend of mushrooms, pancetta and peas in a tomato sauce that was excellent, But the killer dish was Pappardelle Amalfi, homemade pasta with shrimp, zucchini and bits of sweet sun-dried tomatoes in a brandy cream sauce—a little rich but exquisitely delicate. Even the ricotta filling in the cannoli reflected the chef’s deft touch—not too sweet and no need for the commonplace chocolate chips or pistachios that lesser restaurants use to dress up the dessert. The only negative, which is a small one, is that our otherwise competent server felt he had unlimited license to engage us in conversation at every opportunity, when a little less presence would have been more gracious. Next time we get to Orlando, we will return!
