This is a great place for lunch or dinner I have been coming here for lunch for a few months as it is close to my office. Excellent food and reasonable prices. I recommend the Alex special.

First impression when walking in.....it's dark, very dark. You may need the flashlight app on your smart phone to read the menu, I had to use it. After my eyes adjusted, I could see that the walls and ceiling were painted a dark color, the table tops were black, the floor was dark, even the wait staff were dressed in... More

The food was good and service was also good. What wasn't good was that in the middle of lunch the air conditioning went out. We all started to feel it especially since we were seated near the kitchen. We were appalled to see servers and cooks sweating. Hopefully, not into our food. Salad was small and second serving of their... More

The food is excellent! I have tried many items on the menu and I have never been disappointed. I agree with others, order the garlic-herb oil. They charge you for it now but it is worth it. It is awesome on the bread. The service is great too. We have never had bad service or food. This is the one... More

I had lunch catered in for my office and everyone raved over the food. It was probably the best Italian food I've ever had. The delivery driver was kind and set everything up for me. I highly advise visiting Adriatic Café. I know I will be going back for their Alex Special. It was fabulous

Wow! Love this place for so many reasons. We have been there about five times and it is consistently the highest quality food at such a reasonable price. They serve some of the best eggplant parmesan I have ever had. The freshly made bread is over-the-top and be sure to ask for the garlic and herb oil dipping sauce. They... More

This is a very popular lunch venue and it probably has to do with the great food and service. I had the pasta sampler that included manicotti, ravioli, and lasagna along with a side salad. It was a very generous portion and quite unique to be able to sample those various dishes. The fresh hot bread served with the meal... More

We (my husband & I) ate there tonight for the first time, and we were really impressed. The bread is absolutely the best, and the bruschetta was delicious. I am picky about bruschetta. The spaghetti with meat sauce and shrimp scampi were both delicious. They were very busy, but the service was still good.

I had high hopes for this place due to good reviews and a friend's recommendations. Walking in, the place smelled delicious. I love it when garlic smacks me in the face at the door! There was ample seating space at the time we visited (6:15 on a Saturday) and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We preferred a table instead... More

This is one of our favorite Italian places. Service is usually good. The bread is to die for. This trip though my wife tried to order salmon, which is why we drive from Cypress and pass 27 Italian places, but they had just sold out to a to go order. She ended up ordering mussels and a salad. I got... More
