Diner Reviews
  • "Restaurant is noisy, pricey, and without a liquor license. Bring your own wine."

  • "love the food here -great homemade pasta's and fresh ingredients- we had our grandmother's 100th birthday here and everyone thought the food was delicious!"

  • "Recommended by friends this is a top restaurant in the area. Food is well prepared, and served hot. Lots of specials and a good menu as well. Definitely worth a trip back."

  • "We were with a group of 6 people on a Saturday evening. All of us found the food and service very good. However, the noise level was so high that we couldn't wait to leave the restaurant. We had been told that it's much quieter during the week. We will try it again on a weekday. never on the weekend again. None of us enjoyed eating in such deafening noise."

  • "We met friends from out of state--a mid-way location for all of us. Perfect place for a fine evening together. Not feeling rushed, and wonderful service, along with wonderful food. We'll meet them there again next year (and dine there again before that time)."

  • "Delightful in downtown Bedminster. Ambience is very nice. Service is quite good and professional. Food impressive. If a steak tartare fan, do not miss this one! Portions are larger than they need be, guess that means good for leftovers. BYOB is always a great NJ option. First time, and we intend to come back many times. Some large groups in that night, and in NJ that means very loud. Overall, still a great impression, experience, and hats off to ownership and staff for a top shelf restaurant out of NYC in the beautiful Bedminster area."

  • "Great restaurant. The owners and staff are wonderful. The menu and ingredients are first rate."

  • "Arrived early, early on a busy Saturday night at a place clearly frequented by many regulars. Staff did a good job attending to us and explaining the list of specials--tho there were too many for my taste considering the extensive menu. Entree's ranged from C+ (homemade but overcooked spaghetti and less than meaty meatballs) to B (Zuppa di Mare special) to A (lasagne special, seafood and mushroom linguini). Outstanding desert gelato, excellent salads. Not far from 78/287."

  • "My husband and I went to Trattoria Mediterranea for the first time and it won't be the last. The servers were top-notch and the entire staff works as a team anticipating every need or request. Extremely attentive without being intrusive. The actual menu is limited but the specials were numerous and meals well prepared. Lisa went table to table asking how she could be of service and was most gracious to all the diners. The only thing we weren't aware of was the BYOB policy but since neither of us are huge drinkers, it really wasn't an issue. So we know for the next time for celebratory occasions, as it was my birthday, to pick up a small bottle."

  • "Wonderful food and great during the week or for lunch. Stay away on Friday/Saturday nights as it gets very crowded and the noise level is so great that you cannot even hear folks at your own table. We had a table for 4, sat across from each other and could not hear. Had to talk very loudly, as did everyone else ....."

  • "Love the lighting, nice and low. The food is creative including my veggie stuffed baked orange pepper as a starter. Husband and I both had the fish specials which were fresh with nice sauces. Service was professional and not over bearing. We will return!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!!!!"
