    One of the best restaurants in Sarasota! Lamb shank oso buco was excellent as well as the monk fish special with lemon, capers and spinach. Best in town.

    Sorry but the restaurant is just too loud. I could barely make out what others at our table were saying. I suspect it’s due to the low ceilings. It’s a problem

    I travel to Italy every year and Mediterraneo’s food is as being in Italy. The food is fantastic and would highly recommend to anyone that would like to enjoy the true Italian experience.

    I had the snapper special and it was delicious. My son had the bolognese and it was equally as good.

    Our server was very nice. I had homemade pasta with meat sauce and it was spectacular! Everything was delicious. Food is fresh and rich.

    Made reservations both visits with boyfriend. Once in Jan 2024 and again in July 2024. Very welcoming right as we walked in the door. Hostess sat us down and gave us choices of seating. Immediately greeted with a variety of breads. All excellent. Waiter came over immediately. Very kind staff. You can tell they enjoy their jobs. Food came out pretty quickly. Wine is superior and not overpriced (we buy the wine at the store and it’s the same price). Food has been excellent; cooked to perfection, hot, and flavorful. Best Italian food I have EVER had. My Italian boyfriend agrees. This restaurant is run like a well oiled machine. I could not recommend this restaurant more. If in Sarasota you must try it!
