The food was fabulous. The staff
was friendly, knowledgeable and had wonderful Italian accents addng a great touch to the ambiance. The menu was different, creative. I had an Arugula Pear Salad. My entre was thick pasta (Casarrecce) with small meatballs and diced eggplant in a light tomato broth. Dessert was a gem. Hazlenut gelato in a ball with a chocolate center and dusted in cocoa. Off the charts Awesome. Never had any of these three dishes that I can recall. My wife was equally impressed. Bring your own bottle, saves money. I cannot wait to return again."

My husband and I were there for
dinner on Valentine's Day. The food was pretty good but will not be recommending this restaurant because of the service. Waiter put in this wrong dinner order for husband. Took a long time to bring out the correct dish so we ended up sharing my entree and wrapping his to go. Not only did the waiter not comp anything for his mistake but they wrote in 20% tip on our check!"

This was our second visit, for my
mom's 80th birthday. The food and service were just as excellent as last time, and the staff went out of their way to make my mom's 80th birthday very special indeed."

The family is direct from Italy,
and it shows in the food. The pasta is made by a family member every day, and the sauces are varied and delicious. Food is fairly priced, and combined with byo wine it makes the price for the evening out to dinner more than reasonable."

This restaurant continuously
provides an off the charts dining experience with each visit. Staff is so very welcoming and caring...as though you were a beloved family member coming for dinner! And the food is simply extraordinary...this trip we had the grilled swordfish and cod livornese and could not have been more satisfied. An eggplant cake appetizer and a house salad were also better than good. Please don't slip dessert! The friendly and talented young woman who crafts all their desserts is truly an artist...we've never tasted such an extraordinary chocolate cake. Even on a cold and snowy Saturday, the place was packed, so be sure to make a reservation. You won't be disappointed."

With the exception of the noise
level (which unfortunately was not atypical for an increasing number of restaurants these days), our dining experience was extremely positive. From appetizer through dessert, the food was tasty, well-prepared and well-executed. The appetizer and entrees were served piping hot. The dessert we selected, apparently a recent addition to the menu, was an excellent choice for the end of the evening. We appreciated the fact that the cappuccino was served quite hot - and a few minutes before the dessert. From start to finish the service was outstanding in every way. We actually made a return reservation before we left!"

By chance, I happened upon this
restaurant on the internet as a halfway meeting distance with another couple. The food was absolutely wonderful. Each of us ordered something different (2 fish dishes, 1 pork and 1 pasta) and it could not be any better. The antipasta for four was also excellent, as well as the deserts. If I ever want to take a ride to Bedminster, I would definitely dine there again. A little side note... It appears that reservations are necessary on a Saturday night. We had reservations, thank God, as we would have not been able to be accomodated. The restaurant was packed. No fault of their own, but the noise level was quite loud, but very expected with a "full house.""

Always a great meal and service
when dining at Trattoria Mediterranea! It is the closest I have ever had to my Mom's cooking!"
Dined on 1/16/2014
Some friends told us about the
great food and service, so we decided to give it a try for my wife's birthday. The food is excellent, as is the service. The price is very reasonable for the quality of food. We didn't know it was BYOB, but that didn't detract form the overall experience. This will be a regular eating place for us, as it seemed to be for the many regulars dining there that evening."
Dined on 1/10/2014
I've been to the Trattoria about
10 times. They consistently provide creative and very flavorful dishes in a comfortable atmosphere. It's a BYOB place. So we get to bring along our favorite wines and enjoy them with a meal. We'll keep coming back."

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!"

This is the first time we were
seated in the main dining room. We have always been in the entrance foyer before. The service was attentive and the food was very good. I had the braised ribs, tender, fell right off the bones and my husband had the salmon special. Cooked just right. Had a lot of difficulty holding a conversation as it was very noisy in the room. Tables are a bit tight and there were several large groups dining."
Dined on 10/27/2013
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."
Dined on 10/6/2013
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!"
Dined on 10/3/2013
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."
Dined on 9/23/2013
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!"

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."

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 very friendly restaurant with
delicious food and excellent service. selections include organic chicken and pork."
Dined on 9/7/2013
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."
Dined on 8/25/2013
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."

There3 are many Italian
restaurants surrounding us. This one is consistently outperforms the others. Always a good meal with super service."
Dined on 8/8/2013
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."
Dined on 8/4/2013
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."
Dined on 7/20/2013
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!"
Dined on 7/17/2013
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.."

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."

It was our first time at Trattoria
Mediterranea and we thought the food was delicious and would definitely come back again!!!"
Dined on 6/23/2013
We live less than 15 minutes from
this restaurant but, for some reason, have never tried it before. I had linguine with clam sauce, which was rather bland. The other three of us had fish, and all thoroughly enjoyed it. My appetizer was buffalo mozzarella and, unlike most American restaurants, it was the real deal ~ yummy! The noise was excessive. We will return, but not on a Saturday night."
Dined on 6/8/2013
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."
Dined on 6/8/2013
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.."

We visited Trattoria Mediterranea
for the first time on Mother's Day. We were seated promptly and both the host and waiter we quite friendly and accommodating. The waiter took our order and the food was brought in a timely fashion, and served very fresh and hot. The overall quality of the food was good, but not outstanding, with some things better than others. Our antipasto was very good, but our entrees not quite as good. For desert we had homemade gelato which was outstanding. My biggest problem with the restaurant was the noise level. The space could definitely use some soundproofing as it was way too loud and boistrous which took away from the overall enjoyment of the experience."
Dined on 5/12/2013
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."

My 1st time here and it was
amazing! Fresh seafood and cooked perfectly. Service was on point. Will return"

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."
