Food was good, service was horrible.
Excellent , authentic, Italian menu. Well prepared and very favorable food . Great service . Overall very positive dining experience .
Safe, clean, professional and amazing food! Excellent staff! We love the owners. We will be back soon!
Awesome restaurant, such good service, knowledgeable and courteous waitstaff. All dishes were delicious.
I thought I went to Italy! Absolutely amazing in every way! My new favorite restaurant from NY to Sarasota
I ordered the pasta special with meat and there was less than a teaspoon of meat in it. Our friend ordered a shrimp dish served over favs beans and asked to substitute beans with pasta and were told no substitutions. The drinking water tasted like it came from a toilet. The best part of the night was our server who had a good sense of humor
The food was very good! The service was horrible! The waiter's attitude was horrendous! He carried out his duties being annoyed because he had to work. If you don't like doing your job then seek a different profession! Don't come to the table with an attitude, say you will bring bread an don't, bring dessert, yet never took coffee order? I would recommend take out from here rather than dining in. That waiter should be Fired!
It was delicious too busy service lacking
Very loud kids with phones watching movies loud so they could hear over loud noise.
Hopefully better next time.
Great food and service.
Margherita pizza 15 minutes late after others got their main course. It was not really well enough done. Very soggy. Cheese too melted. Hard to handle. Basil just thrown on in the middle of the pizza. We know you can do better than this. We've been here before.
Always wonderful service and delicious food. Always consistent My favourite in Sarasota
We dined outdoors on Easter Sunday. Unfortunately, it was quite wiindy and the numerous propane heaters could not provide sufficient warmth. However, the food and service were excellent as susual.
We always enjoy our meals at Mediterraneo.
Very noisy. My husband’s steak was very good and he enjoyed it very much. The breading on my veal was not crisp, but rather soggy. Taste was good, but the texture wasn’t good.
Very nice service, food was delicious but very very noisy
One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Sarasota. However, this trip was disappointing because the food was not up to the previous standard.
I had the chicken parm and it was soggy and overcooked. Not good.
Amazing food and service! Loved every minute of our dining experience
The service was top notch-very accommodating, friendly, courteous,and helpful. Everyone loved their food. We all agreed we would definitely be back
Our waiter did not bring out my wifes dinner till about 30 minutes after mine and my mothers
Need more staff. Not interested in why you were overrun, its a cardinal rule to never serve the table without all dishes ready
We have been going to this downtown restaurant for years, and have been thrilled to see that they added more outdoor seating and have remained reasonably busy through the pandemic. Food is terrific. The people are friendly. The outdoor seating is quite pleasant. It has a “city“ feel that you just can’t get from a strip mall.
I love this restaurant. Always great service and food.
It was outside and right in Main St so the noise level was high but food and setting delicious!
Great to eat outside in the courtyard. Excellent service. COVID proidicol admired to
Service very good. Food always a level above Italian “American” cuisine. Great specials. We had Outdoor seating on sidewalk area & it was a bit noisy & busy with foot traffic. There is a very nice patio area that we’d like to try next time.
This is a superbly run Italian restaurant that should score highly with foodie community. Top to bottom, it could succeed anywhere. Oh, and the food is simply outstanding.
Adam was our waiter and although the restaurant was very busy and Adam was rushed to satisfy his tables - he remained extremely professional and on top of his service. The food as usual is delicious and well presented. The management is always welcoming. Thank you!!
Awesome food and wine! Always great!
Staff seemed overwhelmed . Mosquitoes outside made dining uncomfortable. We are there very often but this wasn’t the best experience.
Our reservation for two was at 6:30 p.m. on arrival the entire place was full and there were people waiting outside to get in. There were also a lot of kids. We were actually seated between two tables of kids and felt like we had just entered romper room. This is unusual for mediterraneo, as we have eaten there dozens of times in the past. We decided to simply order salads and a pizza. My wife's pomodoro salad had unripe, crunchy tomatoes even though she had requested ripe tomatoes ahead of time. It is hard to get a good tomato in Florida. So that was returned and removed from our bill. The pizza we ordered was cold stale and had evidently been sitting at the serving table for some time. Our waiter did not acknowledge our dissatisfaction as he seemed to be preoccupied with something else. Lots of rubbernecking in this restaurant. There was definitely no longer any social distancing and even though the outdoor patio was packed, that is probably where we should have eaten. So a normally stellar restaurant definitely did not live up to its reputation and past. Sorry.
A great night with friend! Food was delicious, service was fantastic and atmosphere was energetic without being overwhelming. Loved it!
Great each time we dine. Strongly recommend whatever ravioli specials they have.
Maybe it was what we ordered, but the Octopus and the Pork OssoBuco were both very disappointing. Even the potatoes with the Osso Buso were undercooked and had no flavor. We were very disappointed because the maitre d and the server were excellent. The ambiance was fine---just the poor tasting food!
Great Italian place! One of my favorites with lots of outdoor seating.
Delicious food as always! Took some out of town guests and they LOVED it!
Mediterraneo never disappoints. It is consistently excellent.
Always love this restaurant. Amazing Italian food and very authentic.
Great wait staff and great food and wine.
My all-time favorite restaurant in Sarasota.
My go-to restaurant.
The pasta was absolutely incredible! It was fresh, al dente full of great veggies, just delicious! Great service!
Food was very good.
Fabulous evening...wonderful waitress, delicious food with very generous portions, nice wine list...very enjoyable ambience. Great choice or dinner.
Excellent as always!
