    First, Our server, Samantha was amazing!!!! Beautiful place, inside and out. Fantastic food, owners are very nice and accommodating, very profesional. The food was truly outstanding, the salads where great the focaccia with salmon and brie was done perfectly, my salmon piccata was generous in size, super flavorful, fresh and my wifes angel hair pasta was cooked perfectly. Very good old fashion wit a generous pour.

    You can't go wrong with a dinner at Mediterraneo. Fresh, delicious food. Attentive and gracious service (especially if you are lucky enough to be working with Amy!), good wine list and people knowledgeable enough about the selections to provide excellent recommendations.

    We’ve been going to Mediterrano for years, and are never disappointed. Last night was just as wonderful as always. The wines were excellent, as were our soups and our salmon entrées. Service is always the best in town. We’ll be back again soon!

    We have dined at Mediteraneo approximately five times over the past two years. Always very good Italian food and great service. Last night, Saturday, 5/18/24, I had a party of five in the main dining room. Overall still good, but one entrée order was forgotten. Quickly served minute or two after other entrees were delivered. Two diners ordered the veal scaloppini. Flavor was excellent, as usual. This night the cut of veal was a bit tough. Overall, still a quality Italian Restaurant.

    This was our first time and we loved it. We sat outside where it was completely covered and although it was a warm summer night we were comfortable. Every employee we spoke to was welcoming, knowledgeable and in a good mood. The food came out very hot and both meals were served at the same time (very important to us!!) This is our new favorite place! My only suggestion would be to add some soft dinner music.
