This is the real deal if you want authentic Italian cuisine in central Florida! Chef Marco is a master in the kitchen. Everything from soup to desserts are always amazing. Rosetta and the boys always provide excellent service. We love this place so much!
Amazing food. Best flavored pappardelle I've ever had. Will definitely come back if I'm ever in town again which is semi regularly.
I still think that Rossetta and Marco prepare some of the best Italian food in Orlando. I had the Grouper Limon and my wife had the Osso Buco—both special for the evening. They were both perfectly prepared and presented. Outstanding once again.
Love this place! Great food, great location, great service!
Very nice. Food was excellent. Server was fantastic.
Before I order carbonara at any restaurant, I ask the server to verify that the dish is not made with cream. Too often, cream is added; but that is absolutely not the traditional preparation. Our server first responded that there was in fact cream in the dish. I asked him to double check, as I would have been tempted to leave a restaurant that touted its authenticity and then bastardized this traditional dish.
Fortunately our server returned, correcting his earlier statement.
The carbonara was expertly prepared as was my friend's clam sauce. But we both had the same complaint: there was not nearly enough pasta on our plates. I easily could have eaten another half serving, given the small portion. I understand that pasta is a first course in Italy, followed by meat or fish. Our server should have told us of the small portions of pasta that were going to come out of the kitchen. When I politely remarked about the portion size, he neither responded nor passed on my comment to the owners who were present. If he did so, it fell on deaf ears. Next time, if there's two of us, we will order three pasta dishes. By the way, we each had our own appetizer.
Go to Adriatico for the excellent food. Just be mindful of the small pasta portions.
Adriatico is the best Italian restaurant in Orlando and in Florida. The food is perfect every single time and the staff are the best. Chef Marco deserves a Michelin star!
Good food. Nice environment!!
Dinner started with Capesante alla Mediterrania - large diver scallops in a saffron cream. The appetizer was a just miss. While the scallops were seared perfectly, the sauce was almost flavorless. The sautéed spinach just tasted oily. I might try the Gamberi al Quatro Formaggi on another visit or the Classico Antipasto Misto - both which I saw going to other tables and looked great.
Next, we both chose pasta dishes because we knew the pasta was made fresh in-house.
So many things looked good on the menu so we had a really difficult time ordering. Spaghetti con Vongole is one of my favorites so I will have to try their version as well during another visit. But this time we ordered the Fettuccine alla Carbonara because this one will tell you a lot about the chef’s capabilities and finesse. The dish was fabulous. Rich, well balanced flavors left us for wanting more. Really. The serving was tiny for the price but we would order it again, and again.
We also tried the Gamberoni con Spaghetti fra Diavolo. Same story. Fabulous flavors. If you do not eat spicy, do not order because it was very spicy but in an awesomely good way for us. The shrimp were cooked correctly and not over done like many restaurants.
Then dessert. We were told the Tiramisu was made in-house so we had to try this one. You can compare this dessert from restaurant to restaurant because almost every Italian restaurant has a version of it. This one was cold and bland. It was all about the mascarpone cheese cream. No brandy, amaretto or spiced rum to add a warm spike to the flavor. We sent this one back and asked what the owner would suggest.
The suggestion was Torta De La Nonna. Since we had nothing to compare this too, we ordered it as a replacement. It was not made in-house and was a custard torta. I think on another visit I would skip dessert altogether and come home for something sweet.
From what I could see around the small space and from this experience, pasta dishes are the definite way to go!
The food is excellent. Authentic Italian cuisine. However, the service is not the best. Our server was very pushy and it was obvious he wanted us to leave the place ASAP because it was close to 10 pm. We were a table of 6 on a Friday night and he wanted us to leave the place.
The chef however came outside and share sometime with our table. Delicious food.
Delicious meal and very friendly service. We were welcomed by the owner and made to feel very welcome.
Excellent food and service!! Only thing was we were seated by the door. Would have preferred something away from the door. Noisy but not enough to detract from the overall experience. Will definitely will be back when we are in the area!
Great little restaurant with amazing service! Fresh wonderful Italian food. Hand made pasta - defiantly coming back
Our favorite Italian restaurant in Orlando, never disappointed
Great experience. Will definitely go back.
My family and I love Adriático Trattoria! The food is outstanding. Everything we tried there was so good.
Risotto, gnocchi, spaghetti, fettuccine. You have to try all.
And don’t forget to ask for the tiramisu. It’s a dream! Sweet dream...
Wonderful anniversary dinner here. The atmosphere and service were great. The food was excellent. Outstanding Italian Restaurant!
We have been here a few tmes. Food is always excellent. Only complaint this time was the waiter forgot to put my order in for my entree. My whole party had their food. Mine came out almost 10 minutes later. They should have comped me something.
Service and food outstanding. This is a great neighborhood restaurant and don’t miss this gem!
This has become one of my favorite restaurants. Each visit furthers my opinion that you are the best.
My wife and I went out and met Roseta and Marco who were absolutely fantastic. The food was the best. Veggies cooked to perfection and the fish was beyond fantastic. Plan to go back soon
Always a great place for date night dining!
I read the reviews on this restaurant and we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant ambience is so wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine was great. If you want homemade Italian food with great service this is the place to go.
Exquisite! My husband & I we’re there for a date night. Everything from the first sip of wine to our shared cannoli was outstanding. This trattoria is an absolute must. Take the time!!!
Always our go-to place when in Orlando. Great menu choices...and the wine is tasty too. Owners are on-hand and attentive to all our needs.
Aside from it being noisy and a bit cramped, the service and food we wonderful, but very overpriced for what it is. We would not return.
Excellence as always!
Food and service amazing as always. The owner always comes over to check on guest. Amazing place
The food was excellent and the menu had a variety of options. However, this was over shadowed by the level of service we received from our server. He was not attentive and acted was rude. We brought out of town guests here for dinner and I was embarrassed at my choice of restaurants. I will not be back.
We plan to return to Adriatico Trattoria Italiana to try more items on the menu. Everything we ordered was delicious.
This place was amazing. The food and the ambiance was definately on point. I will be back for sure
In a city that is home to a sea of chain restaurants, Adriático Trattoria Italiana is that beacon of light we are searching for. Every meal is expertly prepared with passion. Chef Marco is a máster saucier and offers an amazing menu of homemade pastas, fresh seafood and chops. Everything from appetizers to desserts are always fresh and delicious. The service is always impeccable and friendly. The servers are well versed on the menu and make great recommendations. We love that Rosetta, who happens to be the chef’s wife greets you and makes you feel at home.
If you’re looking for a great night out this is the place!!!
My family loves everything about this place!
