we serve is hand-made daily right here in our restaurant. We cook with a special olive oil. We bake
our own bread fresh every day. All our sauces are prepared to order.
This is Italian comfort-food and if you have not eaten here you have not experienced anything else
like it. Adriatic Cafe is a very casual Italian Restaurant. Come dine with us in jeans, shorts, or
whatever you like. Our Italian Restaurant from the outside doesn't look much, but inside, we treat
you like family and serve you the best Italian food.
15 years ago, Ekrem Hyseni and Alban Bulliqi came to America from Albania with their families.
Ekrem Hyseni learned much about the art of Italian Cooking after working for years in the kitchens
of Venice, Italy. He learned to sauté chicken & seafood, and the art of many savory sauces. With this experience, he has been able to create his own authentic and amazing versions of popular Italian dishes.
While attending school here in Houston, Alban Bulliqi began working in the Pizza industry. Through his experience he has mastered his own dough recipe and authentic pizza sauce that we all enjoy
Because of these personal experiences, their in-laws encouraged Ekrem Hyseni and Alban Bulliqi to open a family owned and operated Italian restaurant. This was the birth of ADRIATIC
CAFÉ & ITALIAN GRILL!
Now, we all enjoy their successful expansion of the business at this second location! The original restaurant is still growing a fanatically faithful following in Jersey Village near the intersection of Jones and 290.
