Mediterraneo Ristorante Italiano
Consistency CountsThis restaurant is one of my favorites. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The service caring. And, perhaps most importantly, the food is consistently good. Daily specials add some interest and provide the freshest ingredients. Just wish the location were a bit more accessible and scenic.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a good timewe are regulars and we always enjoy this restaurant. The service in the bar area where we like to sit was not very good the last two visits. wont keep us away but hope it improves. Bruno at the Pizza oven is the best in town!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian Outside ItalyMy family has been enjoying Mediterraneo since it first opened. The food is outstanding and is truly the BEST ITALIAN FOOD outside Italy. You can not go wrong with anything on the menu. Do not miss the Veal Chop Milanese and any of the Pizzas.
