Adriatico Restaurant offers affordable Italian Food of a high standard always served with a smile. What people keep pointing out is the consistency of the food and service. The restaurant has only ever had one owner since opened in 1992.
The option of BYO wine is handy too.
15 Reviews for Adriatico Restaurant
We are early eaters, so are always able to get a table. The staff are always the same. Quiet & friendly. The meals can be slow to arrive but as mentioned above we have never been let down.
A really good place to eat
Gave it a second shot last Thursday. Reception was very unfriendly but the waitress serving us on the table was very nice introducing herself to us and really looked after us during the night without being pushy. Started with some bread, Real good home baked bread. As a main we both had chicken Frangelico . was o.k but next time I’ll take the small portion because it was HUUUGE! Food was a little pricey and no carpark.
The Big Boss could at least Smile, grumpy old man he was, pizza hut here we come..
Between the 5 of us we tried a lot of the menu and could not fault the Steak, Pasta, Pizza or Pork Belly. Incredible taste to all the dishes and their sauces. The garlic bread was simply delicious.
The service was good and Dimitar was the perfect host and chef.
Well recommended by Donald and his mates.
They make all their pizzas, fresh garlic bread and the spaghetti mamma mia is mmm. They also do takeaway. Bookings recommended for dinner as it is quite a small restaurant.
We ended up just ordering mains and then dessert. The mains were very good and we really enjoyed them but the dessert (tiramisu) was rubbish and didn’t remotely resemble the traditional dessert, being just plain sponge with a bit of regular cream and cheap sundae sauce on top.
Overall, in terms of value for money it was ok, but not great, especially for the dessert.
All in all, a magical evening. We will be back! Soon.
Update August 2012: We have been here several times now, and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently great: very tasty, but not over-rich, and the portions are large. Our orders were taken and food served quickly. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful, but informal and casual….which we like. And the boss was friendly and all smiles A very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, not stuffy – great for dining with family, friends and workmates….or just the two of us. Our new favourite restaurant, for sure.
