Medici in Normal
Mother's Day BrunchMy wife and I were in town for a friend's wedding. My mom and sister were also attending the wedding, so we wanted some place to take my mom on Mother's Day. I found Medici through Opentable and read the reviews. I was pleased that they did not have an increased price menu on Mother's Day, like a lot of restaurants do. We were all very pleased with the food and the service. I especially liked the ambience and open space and feel of the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I had the Han's Stroganoff (sp?), while other had the crab cakes benedict - all which earned great reviews. The portions were filling, but not too big, and all were reasonably priced.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Upscale spot right on campusThe decoration is lovely, the food is very good (and I do come from the Chicago area).
Very nice addition to Normal for a outdoor lunch spot or a special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for a Work LunchThis is a great place to come for a work lunch, with a client or just co-workers. There are many food options to choose from and even nice vegetarian choices. Skip the pick two lunch option and try one of the amazing salads instead, you won't regret it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gluten Free Find!My parents came into town so my husband and I took them out to eat at Medici. I've wanted to eat there because of the beautiful interior decoration and the tree that's in the middle of the restaurant! My farther and I are both on a strict gluten-free diet because of a genetic disease. I was expecting to order a fabulous salad, or a chicken/steak meal. To my surprise, they had a gluten-free menu full of amazing options. From pasta to pizza, there were so many gluten-free meals to choose from! It was great. We all enjoy our meals great (gluten-free and "regular" meals alike). I hope to return for a date night with the hubby again soon to try out those other gluten-free entree's.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticAnother great trip to Medici!

Food was all wonderful too!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Evening at Medici's-Outstanding!The ease of getting a reservation and how quickly my party was seated was outstanding.

Quick service made for a very nice evening out.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FindThere were six of us for the first time. We had heard about it from a friend and I also saw that you had supported the Antique Show at the Bone Center at the university. We all had different entrees and found them to be very good. Don't miss the crab cake - WOW! The serving size was generous with lots of crab meat (missing at many restaurants). I think I will order it and a salad for an entree, great if you're watching the calories. We will definitely be back. Well worth the visit. We also ate an early dinner (4:00pm) and that was just right for the noise. By the time we left, the noise level had risen quite a bit with a full restaurant.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good. Pizza dough isVery Good. Pizza dough is hand made and delicious, definitely worth it to get the artisanal stone. Wish they had soda options that did not contain high fructose corn syrup though, such as sierra mist.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good meal at a reasonableVery good meal at a reasonable price. My daughter and I had a great time.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
