We came early for dinner during the week. We had a larger party so they sat us at the table right in front of the fireplace. It was so nice and cozy. The waiter took my drink order right away while I was waiting for the rest of my party. They have an amazing happy hour with deals on appetizers and drinks. Wines are $3.00 a glass, draft beer is $2.00 and sangria is $5.00. Ask for dipping sauce with your bread, it is an olive oil blend and so yummy with their bread. We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was perfectly cooked. For an entree, I had the chicken carbonara which was not my favorite. However, I have tried some other things since and they were all delicious so I would try other entrees next time instead of the carbonara. Our waiter started lacking about half way through dinner. Some needed to leave and could not find him for several minutes to get the bill. I asked for a to go order and after everyone had paid and some left I was still waiting for it. I finally asked about it and it was brought out. The waiter chased me down in the parking lot bringing me a free dessert because of the wait for the to go food and their mistake for not bringing it out quicker. It was tiramisu and it was ok. Great italian food, they just need to work out some minor glitches and will be five stars. More...

After sometime living in the area, my boyfriend and I finally decided to give this place a try. I ordered the Chicken Carbonara and he had the Adriatic Special. Let me tell you! The sauce in the Adriatic Special is sooooo delicious. We often heard if this place through our apartment complex, but never gave it a shot. Now I regret not coming here anytime sooner. We definitely will be back! More...

Nice family run Italian joint nestled in Jersey Village.  They have house made bread that's a little different from what you would expect - very good but I'm more partial to traditional Italian bread.  The spaghetti the works is very good.  There are very few places that I really like the sauce but their's is great.  Pizza is good too.

They make you feel at home.Our local favorite for a stress-free, low-key dinner dash. Friendly staff, family atmosphere, delicious dishes for a very fair price. You can't go wrong with their classic lasagne, but everything on the menu is worthy of a try, and the free portion of hot-buttery garlic knots will do your soul good. Large servings leave plenty for the following day. Pizzas, salads, calzones... pick your pleasure. You'll be glad you did. More...

Finally made it to Adriatic after rave reviews from family. The restaurant was very busy for a Sunday night, but our party of 15 was seated within 15 minutes. They committed the popular sin of seating 15 at a four-top, so we were very cramped. The garlic knots are hot and fresh, delicious...and addicting. Resist the urge to eat 8 of them. The calamari appetizer was hot and crispy fried to perfection. Served with Adriatic's pride and joy - their homemade marinara. A great way to start the meal. I ordered the Greek salad to share with my daughter. It was very fresh and HUGE. The only negative, and I can't believe I'm saying this, is that I felt there was too much feta. Every bite was overly cheesy.Main course was the Zuppa de Pesce. Shrimp, calamari, mussels and clams sautéed in a white wine pink sauce that was like and Alfredo with a touch of marinara. The seafood was plump (no salad shrimp here), and was delicious, although I couldn't fully appreciate it until the next day due to my garlic knot addiction. Service was attentive as could be for a full restaurant. I'll be back to sample other items! More...

You know. I like this place. Good review. Thanks guys!Okay no seriously this place is delicious. I know they have another restaurant but why when this is so convenient for me. So I have a couple cons that doesn't give it a 5 star. The parking lot is odd. They built the restaurant there and don't share it but it was designed poorly and it needs to be said. Secondly, I'm a boother. I like to only sit in booths. Their booths are crammed in there like a car fill of clowns. They could have removed a booth from either side and it would be a SO much more enjoyable experience. Done with that rant. The food!They give you this super amazing delicious bread with this parm shake on top and it's just. Just delicious. I eat so much I can barely eat my dinner itself. Score leftovers. I had a small Greek salad as a starter. It was a meal almost itself. Huge. Delicious. And amazing. And chicken carbonara. My absolutely favorite. Creamy. Bacony. Mushroom..ey. It's perfect. And it so amazingly reasonably priced. It's kinda dumb how affordable this good food is. Go try it out! You'll thank me. More...

We've been going since the restaurant opened. We are frequent diners at this restaurant and go almost every week. They even have a frequent diners program, but the waiters and waitresses frequently forget to give you the credit for your meals. This happened to us and we even brought this to the attention of the manager. It kind of spoils an otherwise great meal and special night out for my wife and I who love your food. Either stop having the frequent diner program or make sure the staff gives the proper credit to your customers. We certainly won't be using your frequent diner program again as it left a bad taste in our mouths and maybe we'll go less frequently. More...

The ambience was warm and inviting as my husband and I walked in for an early dinner. We were immediately seated in a booth in the bar area. Our server was attentive and friendly. I ordered the chicken piccata and my husband ordered the lasagna, and I had a glass of house chardonnay.We were served warm, fresh bread before our meals arrived.  It was actually pretty delicious!Our meals came out fairly quickly. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with my meal. Basically, the spaghetti was over cooked, slices of a chicken breast were thrown on top and capers were strewn about the dish. My husband was happy with his lasagna, however. I was quite hungry so I ended up eating most of my chicken piccata even though I didn't like it very much. I've chosen to give this business 4 stars only because my meal was subpar but everything else was above average. I may give them another chance! More...

We had dinner at Adriatic Cafe this evening.  Happily surprised they have happy hour 3pm - 6pm during the week.$3 house Chardonnay was very good. Calamari & our entrees were excellent.We didn't care for the oil dip.  Way too much cheese so much that we couldn't taste even a hint of garlic.I put the oil dip on the empty calamari plate only to have waiter put it back on our table.  That irritated me because we were done with the oil dip.  It was in the way when entrees came.Won't ever order oil dip again.  So cheesy it was nasty.Love the bowl of real butter on the table for the yummy rolls.We were too full to order dessert.May try to come for lunch so we can hopefully try dessert More...

Dren and  his staff were excellent as always!  Warm, delicious Italian cuisine like mom used to make. The veal piccata was awesome and the really fresh, crisp and flavorful veggies as a side was a bonus. You can't beat this place for the fine quality food and price. Tomball's little secret. Highly recommended!Special of the night. Out of the oven hot, light moist flakey fish with homemade mashed potatoes and crispy asparagus. Great service and cocktails from Katherine and Kelly. Thank you!  Great prices and portions too. First timer, I'll be back for sure... More...

We arrived before 6:00 pm and participated in the happy hour festivities. $2 domestic beers (bottles), and 1/2 off appetizers. We ordered the brushetta  and the scampi.  The brushetta was really good, but the scampi in a garlic/tomato sauce was so delicious.  I'm talking, just give a couple orders and I'm one happy guy. For dinner we ordered a large pepperoni and mushroom pizza along with a carbonara pasta dish.  Both exceeded all expectations!  Deliciousness at its best.  Highly recommend!!! More...

The clam linguine looked really good in the photos so I had to try it. It was pretty good as the pasta was cooked well, the clams were soft and sweet and the wine sauce light. I was really hoping for a more salty and creamy sauce, but this didn't disappoint. Good Clam dishes are hard to find as usually they taste a bit like sand and tough. The garlic knots come out really hot and fragrant. They're still soft after a while, but the heat is gone pretty quickly. I tried the Mussels appetizer with the white wine sauce. It was pretty good. The mussels were soft and tasty for 1/2 price off, but I like the mussels to be larger. The Limoncello mascarpone cake was softer than it looked. It was sweet with a hint of lemon. The cream cheese filling was really fluffy and less dense than I expected. The atmosphere is family casual and a bit bar-like. There are two restrooms. More...

Great food, we have always wanted to try their food. They were giving enough to sponsor a donation drive for a fallen law enforcement officer’s family that sped up our dining there. We ended up dining there both days to help with the donations. They have gained us as customers and I am sure of the same with all the other patrons there. More...

I saw them trying their hardest to make this one family happy that I guess tried to be mad for nothing. I have a family of 6, and every time we come they try to get us a table promptly. If you like bread, their bread is so good, you will get full on it before your meal comes. More...

Always a winner. Look of the appetizer portion of calamari! Huge. The gluten free chicken was so delicious and it had two large pieces of chicken. There was live music. The bread and the butter always break down my resistance and I eat too much. It was a Thursday night and the place was solidly filled thought we didn’t have to wait to be seated. This is one of my favorite places. Hubby had the salmon and it was so large he had to take some of it home. I forgot to take the pictures before we dove in. This place is family owned and it shows. The customer service and quality is top notch. The nice ambiance is a reflection of the family’s care. More...

The Penne alla vodka dish was really good.  We visited on a Friday evening and the wait was approximately 20 minutes, which is what the hostess initially told us.  My husband enjoyed his chicken parmigiana as well, so it was a win for us. More...

29 July 2019

Calzone Special was really good and big enough to feed 2 people--5 stars. Ingredients were fresh and it was very stuffed. Dough was crispy on outside . Tiramisu was just okay--3 stars. Flavor was nothing special. I couldn't taste any coffee flavor. No alcohol flavor, which I don't mind, but I'm sure some people prefer a stronger alcohol taste. I was surprised to see that it comes with chocolate sauce drizzled on top. I thought it would be good because I love chocolate, but it just tastes like Hershey's syrup, and I think I actually like it better without the syrup. I was disappointed that I ordered to-go and I had to ask for napkins, plastic ware, parmesan cheese and red pepper. They gave me some of their garlic bread to eat while I waited. The waitresses seemed really excited and proud of the bread, and it was pretty good, but I'd rate it 4 stars Because not quite enough butter and garlic, and it did not come with any kind of olive oil to dip it in. When I reheated it at home, I sprinkled on some Italian herbs and black pepper and dipped it in olive oil with more Italian herbs and black pepper, and that made it delicious! The lighting is a little darker than I prefer, but I know some people like that for ambience. More...

Love stopping into this location and the newer 249 location when craving Italian food. Their menu is spectacular and includes many of the popular dishes, along with offering a lot of unique dishes not commonly found at other Italian restaurants. The bread they provide is very addicting and if you're not careful, you can get full off of it. Portions are HUGE and usually you can take it to go if you would like lunch or dinner the following day.Service is attentive and friendly. Wine selection is available and the atmosphere is a bit darker, and more romantic than say "Olive Garden or Carrabba's" type. More...

This is our favorite Italian restaurant and one of our favorite restaurants in general. Food is always excellent, reasonably priced, and large portions. We  are able to take half home and get two meals out of it. Love, love, love the Adriatic Special which is a pasta dish with chicken, sausage, and ham. My husband always gets the fettuccine. We usually stick we these but I have enjoyed their other dishes as well. The free bread is really good and addicting. I paid extra once to get the seasoned oil for dipping but honestly is has enough flavor without. It can be a little loud on weekend nights but we don't mind. Adriatic never disappoints! More...

BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN HOUSTON!!!! Wow. Just wow. Celebrated my dad's bday here and had such an amazing experience! I wish I could remember the name of our server cause she was one of the BEST I've met. .. so attentive and sweet and always made sure we had everything we needed. Customer service is awesome! Now onto the food-- I WAS BLOWN AWAY. I am a huge fan of Italian food and after trying many Italian restaurants anywhere from authentic to Americanized (cough, cough: Olive Garden) and this one is definitely up there with the authentic! The prices are also so affordable!!! Especially after just coming back from my NY trip and eating real, authentic Italian this place definitely compares!!! I can't even stress enough how delicious and flavorful the Penne Alla Vodka was-- one of my fave dishes I tend to order everywhere and they made it perfect. So glad I came across this restaurant on Yelp and am so happy to have a go-to authentic Italian restaurant to go to now!!! Give em a try, you won't be disappointed! More...

Great food, great staff and wonderful atmosphere. The lasagna and chicken Parmesan are delicious. Your meals will come with a basket of garlicky rolls. The food portions are pretty big.

Come here if you're craving some filling Italian food, you can't go wrong! More...

One of our favorites in the JV area. Inside the decor reminds me of the old style 1970's restaurants I went to as a kid when my parents went out to someplace nice. Not outdated but classic. The food is really good and they also have some of the best pizza around. The bread knots they bring out are fantastic but be careful, it's way to easy to eat too many of these. We like to come for happy hour. $2 beers and $3 house wine and half price appetizers is the best deal going. I always get the sliced sausage in tomato sauce as the appetizer. The sauce is amazing. We have always had great service when we come here and have never had a bad experience. They have gluten-free pasta also for those who have food sensitivities. We just wish they would do a gluten-free pizza crust but they have plenty of salad and grilled options so my wife always finds something she likes. If you are in then JV area and looking for a nice place to go for a date night, a family get together or just a great dining experience at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. More...

Ok I have to say that this is one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. The food was amazing and not like a chain restaurant [magginios or carrabba's) dishes or made it order and pasta sauce made in house. The pasta Alex is to die for.

The service was very fast, and Sherry is a fantastic, friendly waitress. The price was reasonable, and the ambience was nice.

Good Italian food at reasonable prices. This was our first time there; we got our order to go.The rolls and oil/herb oil dipping sauce are awesome. The rolls are soft, yet chewy. Kind of a combination of soft dinner rolls and rustic bread.The lemon limoncello mascarpone cake was moist and flavorful.We both got chicken parmigiana with fettuccine Alfredo in place of spaghetti. They put the chicken and pasta in separate containers, which was great. The chicken parm was good, but a bit bland. The Alfredo was creamy and al dente, but also a bit bland. It occurred to me later that I should have added salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. (Which they provided along with red pepper flakes.) Better a bit bland than too salty.The staff is very nice. They even threw in a couple of extra rolls.Next time I want to try a calzone and / or the manicotti. Also the tiramisu.The interior is clean and attractive. The chairs are padded (I have bad hips so this matters). Perhaps we'll dine in next time.Recommended. More...

Wow, By Grabthar's Hammer, what a value!  First, they bring you hot freshly baked bread in a borderline ridiculous quantity. .. and if you ask nicely they will bathe it in herb-infused olive oil... in the words(?) of Homer Simpson, "MMmMMmMmmmm..."  The menu is extensive and the food is good.  You may as well ask for a doggie bag when you sit down because the portion sizes are ENORMOUS.  And the prices are good too!  No wonder the place is packed every time I've been.

I don't eat much pasta so I had a Greek salad which was excellent. Others had chicken on top of theirs and it was beautifully grilled and a generous portion. Others raved about their pasta. I like the low lites, red booths, and the retro vibe when you walk into a joint like this on a sunny afternoon. They get five stars and waitress got a 100 percent tip from me because she treated our group of ladies very well. As if she was working for a tip and not upset we were a group of women. It is definitely not authentic Italian but I've never come across that in Houston. I'll go back. More...
