About

Adoro Lei, an exciting Italian restaurant located on Hudson Street in NYC promises to provide a new kind of eating and drinking establishment, transforming and elevating the traditional pizza eating experience. Everything from the art on the walls, to the music and food have been carefully curated to create the ultimate upscale pizza party.

Creative Director Michael DiBugnara along with partners and long time friends Joseph Primiano and Rick Froio joined forces to make their dream become reality – create a restaurant and environment where impeccable service, gracious hospitality and delicious food meet fun music and good times.
“I want Adoro Lei to become people’s second home” says Dibugnara. “A place where you go alone because you know your friends will be there, or where kindred spirits are finally acquainted. It combines my love and adoration for great food, cocktails, music and people.”
At the culinary helm of Executive Chef Mario Gentile

Great spot for a quick pizza. We were there well before prime dinner hour and 15 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated immediately and service was very fast. Great waitstaff, food was excellent. Would definitely go back!

Limited menu. Food was not good at all. Wet pizza. Poor service. Wine poured to spill outside of glass and mess left on table until we cleaned ourselves. Bad music, which wasn’t music at all.

Great meal and atmosphere within walking distance of hotel Hugo. I had two twenty year olds with me so we kept it simple with Caesar salad and pizza. They enjoyed sitting next to dj and the music. Attentive service. Would definitely recommend.

ADORO LEI has a lot of potential. It seems to be a nice place to go for a beer or pizza brick oven. Not quite the best option for lunch or dinner though.

Been coming here for lunch with co-workers for awhile now - love the ambience and the food is great. This last time, we ordered the wings and the vodka pizza. Wings came out steaming hot and were really tasty. The vodka pizza took a bit of time to make (which our waiter had previously informed us on), but it arrived looking like a plain pie and not tasting as much like a vodka sauce. I don't know, maybe they just replace the tomato sauce with vodka sauce, and while it was delicious, I couldn't tell you if it was what I actually ordered!

Food was decent but our order took an hour at lunch. We had to take it to go. And it’s not the first time we’ve experienced super delays at lunchtime. Reco going for dinner — maybe it’s not as nuts.

The GM made me feel so special and it was honestly the best birthday dinner I’ve had in a very long time! The service, ambiance, food and service was spectacular! The food and drinks are unforgettable! My whole meal from beginning to end was amazing! Other restaurants / venues need to learn from them here!
I’m definitely coming back with all my friends and family! AMAZING!!!!!

This restaurant was recommended to me so couldn't wait to go. loved the eggplant parmagiana, but have to admit the pizza we ordered was not crisp or hot. Felt like it was sitting and waiter forgot to serve it hot & fresh. But you can taste the fresh cheese just wish it was hotter.

The restaurant didn’t live up to the reviews. Food was okay, but the timing was off (we had our salad and soup before the bottle of wine came, and the chicken for the salad arrived later). It is also a strange layout with mostly high top tables that make the meal less cozy, but could be good for work meals.

Pretty underwhelming experience all around. Firstly I reserved the table based on the menu online, which apparently was outdated and was not reflective of their current offering. Ordered a hot beverage and it never came. The food was totally forgettable and one of our party members had digestive issues after. The place was virtually empty for brunch and was still very loud.
