I always feel completely "at home" when having dinner at Mediterraneo. The tables are set far enough apart to have conversations and you never feel rushed. The wait staff and maitre di's are wonderful and attentive. The other evening, we enjoyed a fresh tri colore salad and a lentil soup as starters.; both very good. My salmon was perfectly cooked as was the penne vodka and linguine with clam sauce. We also couldn't resist a chocolate cake with ice cream. All and all, a delightful experience and a great neighborhood standby.

We have a monthly counsin's lunch there for the last 3 years so I guess you could say we like it. The food is good. Wine selection is pricey but good.

We’ve dined at Mediterranean many times over the years, and the food and ambiance has improved each visit. This visit continued the positive trend, as we enjoyed great appetizers, as well as several of their chicken and fish main courses, all fantastic. Although they have a very well conceived wine list and sommelier, we brought a special wine of our own to share with friends, and invited our server to inbibe with us, and the party began! All in all, spending time swapping stories about Italy, special Italian wines with the restaurants chef, owner and team was fantastic, and a great learning experience. We always try to support local business, theMediterranean is worth traveling to for a routine or special dinner.

Love this place, closest I get to eating Italian food without going to Italy. We are so spoiled to have Mediterraneo in our own community. The staff is super friendly, the menu is wonderful - and if your favorite isn't on it, they will probably make it for you. The big new windows that are all open on warm days are a great new change to the architecture. Would recommend this place to any and all who enjoy excellent Italian food and wine in a casual atmosphere.

We dine at this restaurant often and it has been quite good as expected. Often our waiter, Carlo, would recommend dishes. He was off that night.
Unfortunately this dinner was disappointing. Very surprising.
We ordered an appetizer of calamari- under-cooked, had to send it back. Came out again, not much better and a very small portion for $13.00. The prices have gone up across the entire menu.
Since we were with another couple, we decided to keep the order and not make another request to recook or cancel it.
We should have asked for it to be taken off our bill!!
We both ordered a chicken capriccio but requested a substitute dish that our previous waiter, Carlo had suggested when we were last there.
It was delivered incorrectly, had to take it back and then brought out a dish with cold cheese pieces and tomatoes.
All the while our friends had been eating.
Disappointing!!!!!

Because we were scheduled to attend a movie, I let the restaurant know our time constraint as soon as we arrived, which was actually a bit later than our reservation. They responded immediately and gave us excellent, timely, but not rushed service. We both ordered the Halibut Special of the evening and we both concurred that it was fantastic. The salad we shared was excellent, too. Mediterraneo has a nice ambience, but it is also family friendly. Really a special, attentive restaurant with delicious food.

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.
