This was our first time visiting Medeterraneo. We were pleasantly pleased with the service, food and overall experience. The restaurant is very well situated and they have their own parking lot and additional parking nearby. This is a big help if you are dining with elderly people.

A major disappointment. Met some friends there thinking we were going to have good food. Four of us had three different pasta dishes and all three were tasteless. Not what you would expect at that price point. Even the ingredients were what you might see at a cheap diner. Ill give them a (1) only because the bread and salads were just Ok. If you want good food find another restaurant.

We’ve eaten at your restaurant several times and never disappointed. My brother who lives in Pleasantville was the one who told us about it. Love the food, service and can actually have a conversation at the table and hear each other. Will be back!

I was very pleased with my experience. My friend and I could hear each other, the food was excellent, as was the service. Having open doors to the outside was very nice, as it was a spectacular evening to enjoy. I've been to Mediterraneo before and I will continue to go there.

I ordered Pasta Putanesca on the prix fixe menu and although the food was fine, the main course was the size of a side order of pasta. I am not a tremendous eater and I walked out hungry. Also, the staff acted as if they could care less whether we were there or not. I don’t live in Westchester and made a special trip from Rockland to dine here based on a previous experience, but I will rethink going back:

Party of 4. Food below par. Chicken parm too thick. Didn’t seem to have been pounded to tenderize. 2 fish dishes had tasty sauces but fish had no flavor. Tasted artificial. Risotto was ok but nothing great. We all had pre fix for $25 each. Maybe regular menu is better.

Love the food, the selection and the ambiance! The selection on the menu is difficult to choose from as there are so many delicious options. Fish, veal, chicken and specials offer variety!

Delicious, large portions of very fresh food. Oysters (Blue Point were available) tasted like they just came out of the ocean. The calamari was cooked to order without pepper. We thoroughly enjoyed the veal melanaise , the pasta with clam sauce, and the filet of sole in lemon caper sauce. If you still have room, the cheesecake was the best I have ever tasted. It as well as most of the deserts are cooked in house. The meal was enjoyed without being rushed.

We were delighted tp take our out-of-town guests to introduce them to Mediterraneo, one of our favorite Pleasantville restaurants. They were impressed! But now that the restaurant is able to open substantially all of the doors that separate it from the sidewalk, we were also treated to very gusty blows from a strong northwest wind, which the ladies found very annoying to their hairdos! Plus, the late afternoon sun glare that we, as early dinners experienced, forced us and several other tables to move further inside, since with the open doors, shade curtains and awnings could not be lowered.

Recommended to this gem hidden in Pleasantville by a friend and was impressed beyond - service was on point and the food was fabulous. It was my first visit but definitely not my last. If in the area, try it - you'll surely enjoy it.

We went to Mediterraneo for the first time on the recommendation of a friend. We met other friends there and all four of us were very happy with our choice. The restaurant is nicely decorated, small-to-mid-sized, and (very important!) not too noisy. We were able to have a good conversation with our friends, but yet there was some "buzz" in the dining room. The food was very good, and the staff is outstanding!
