Adda Indian Cuisine

If the dining room at Adda in Little Italy feels familiar, that’s because this Indian spot took over Italian restaurant Francesca's space in 2020. And while the booths and white tablecloths are still here, we much prefer the food coming out of the kitchen at Adda. The menu is long, with dishes like tender lamb vindaloo in a spicy vinegary sauce, mahi mahi in a coconut curry with kokum and red chilies for heat, and a tandoor section where the smoky meat tastes like it’s been marinated for days. Come here with at least three friends when you’re in the mood to share a bunch of curry and biryani.
