Adagia Restaurant is a the newest venture of Strada caffe owner Daryl Ross and it is located in the historical landmark Westminster House located at 2700 Bancroft Way directly across the street from the University California-Berkeley.

Adagia restaurant has already been given the approval of many Bay Area restaurant reviewers; Adagia was given 3 1/2 stars by the Contra Costa Times and was most recently called "simply satisfying" by the Chronicles Michael Bauer.

The restaurant's menu is California-Mediterranean and relies on the bounty of the local farmers to provide the key ingredients for which each dish is centered around.

Executive Chef Brian Beach creates his sometimes nightly changing menu based soley on what is currently the best produce that the local farmer's markets and farms have to offer.

The food is purposely straight forward and simple and the portion sizes are incredibly generous; especially with regard to the prices, everything seems like a bargain considering the quality of ingredients and the amount of food you get with each dish.

The service is clean, eager and energetic without being intrusive and they all generally seem to be willing to accomidate the guests to the best of their abilities.

The decor is regal and the seats are very comfortable within the walls of this 1920's building designed by famed architect Walter Ratcliff.

A great experience for the serious foodie, kids on a student's budget, families of four, groups of 20-30 and everything else in-between. Adagia is a great addition to the Berkeley dining scene.
