Best Surprise Ever!
I am not often surprised - but this restaurant surprised me in a great way! Two brothers create fabulous creations that will please any palate. It is a BYOB which is a plus. The younger brother acme out to chat with us and the staff provided excellent service! Very homey atmosphere. Generous portions. More importantly, all three of us loved our dishes. The best ending to the night was their Tartufo! Not like any you have EVER had! They learned how to make them home made! FABULOUS!!!! I will definitely be returning.

Outstanding food and service
I made a reservation here for mother's day. My husband and I live out on Long Island, but my mother is local to the area. We had never been here before and were hoping for the best. We were not disappointed! Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Everything from our appetizer to dessert was delicious, presented beautifully and cooked to order. This is a family owned restaurant. We had the pleasure of meeting Lisa, the wife when we learned she had made our dessert herself - hazlenut gelato. Their pasta is handmade on the premise also and is something you don't find just anywhere. We cannot wait to go back! You must visit them and experience it for yourself.

One of the Best!
This is a small family owned restaurant with great food, service, and a warm friendly atmosphere. My only wish is that it wasn't so loud..

Great Italian food!
Great food and service. If you love lasagna, try their homemade lasagna as well as their eggplant stack as an appetizer. Both are delicious and homemade. Great seafood dishes as well. The staff are also very accomodating and personable. A great place to bring a bottle of wine and have a good meal.

Wonderful dinner, excellent service, in a warm, inviting atmosphere. I don't know when I've enjoyed a meal as much as at Trattoria Mediterranea. The food was truly outstanding.

Happy in Bedminster!
Our complete dining experience (from the hostess's welcome to the last teaspoon of the gelati) was exceptional. We dined with 2 other couples and everyone remarked on the quality and excellent preparation of the food. We particularly enjoyed the menu and specials that were offered which contained notably different choices from those of typical Italian restaurants and would be certainly welcomed by other Foodies. Notable also was the hostess and service staff all of whom were all pleasant, friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we (all six) were satisfied at each part of the dinner. We will return to try other menu choices and, based on our single visit, would certainly recommend the restaurant to others..

It makes life great when there is an amazing dining experience in your own backyard! This is not the first time I have been here. They are consistently serving delicious Italian dishes and homemade pasta. Their cannelloni are worth the trip alone, not to mention their home made Tartuffo! The owners and staff are extremely friendly such that I feel like I am visiting a friend's home.
Make time to go - you will not regret it!

We couldn't wait to go back to Tratt. Med., when we returned from vacation!
Better than ever. Food is authentic southern Italian and fresh beyond compare.
Family-run business, with a wonderful and attentive staff that makes you feel at home at every visit.
Do not miss the fresh seafood salad, and the fresh, homemade pastas are incomparable.
I love all things lemon, so the lemon tart hits the spot for an ending.
This place never, ever disappoints, and always pleases.

This was our first time dining there and we were impressed! Both owners greated us and helped us with our choices. The octopus and shrimp was one of the freshest & tenderest octopus I have ever eaten. My wife had eggplant lasagna and it was fantastic! Definitely will go again.

Best in the area!
What a fantastic place! The specials are numerous...in addition to the great menu. Everything is so fresh...and so much of what is served is house made (try the tartufo...best ever). Service is amazing...each employee seems to be truly concerned with each diner's experience. A bit out of the way and hidden in a little strip mall, but worth the drive for an amazing meal! We will be back.

Great local restaurant
Mediterranea has been part of the local restaurant scent for almost 20 years. The food keeps getting better every year and the price point is very good in comparison to the other local BYOBs. Not much in the way of ambience although there are large tables for big parties and a semi private room for a group. Large portions and very good Italian fare. Great service. Pasta with eggplant and meatballs is excellent. Creative salads and good fish dishes.

My husband and I had been
My husband and I had been to TM once before and really like it. This time we decided to have another couple join us and they loved it just as much. This is a restaurant that we will frequent again and again. They have delicious food and outstanding service here. What an enjoyable evening!!!!

A long – time favorite
Have been going here for years. Moved out of state four years ago, and come back once or twice a year to visit. Always come back to Trattoria Mediterranea for dinner. It is bring your own wine. The food is fabulous, the staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is quite pretty. It's a little noisy on Saturday nights, but that's okay with us. Have never had any dish that I didn't absolutely love. Highly recommend, no matter how long it takes you to get there.

This place has it all...lovely ambiance, amazing food and the most wonderful service anywhere! The family members and other staff who work here truly care about the diner's experience and could not be more caring. This is THE PLACE for Italian food in Morris County and beyond!

Nice Neighborhood Italian Find
All of the dishes we had were excellent. The specials list was almost as long as the menu itself. Atmosphere was relaxed and we were not rushed at all. The bread was house mad and excellent. A real enjoyable evening.

The best kept secret!
This restaurant is my absolute favorite! Being Italian, it is very difficult finding exceptional Italian food. Trattoria Mediiterranea has exceeded my expectations. The food is always fresh, plentiful and delicious. Their sausage is outstanding! You won't be disappointed!! The waiters and waitresses are very attentive and friendly!

This was our first time Trattoria Mediterranea. I now understand why they get great reviews. Food was excellent, service was very very good. BYOB - was a great addition for us. Definitely recommended.

Great neighborhood find
First time here and thoroughly pleased! Pasta appetizer was made fresh and delicious. My wife had Bronzino and is had swordfish and shrimp. The fish was very fresh tasting and prepared. Tartuffo dessert and cappuccino finished off the meal wonderfully! Service was genuine. Great neighborhood find. We will certainly be coming regularly. Highly recommended!
