Love Mediterraneo. Authentic Italian.
Always a great meal here with outstanding service, and reasonable too
Our Grandson is at IMG and loves Mediterraneo....been there many times.
Worst dining experience I have ever had. Waited almost two hours for the food. They never made my husband dinner. Food was horrible! Service was horrible. I will never return.
As usual, OUTSTANDING!! The veal milanaise was cooked to perfection.
Every aspect of our dinner was beyond compare.
Cannot wait to return soon.
Waited 45 minutes for table even though I had a reservation. Very crowded and noisy yet food was truly delicious .
Food was very good, but . . . waited for over half an hour past reservation time to be seated. Noise level made it impossible to have anything approaching a conversation. Service inattentive. Waited over an hour and a half after ordering entrees until they were delivered. Very good food . . . but unlikely to subject myself to the other disappointments in the future.
Very good! We love it! Especially birthdays cake very beautiful! Thanks
Good food and wine. Place is a bit noisy, but we were seated in the back room, which was a little quieter.
Excellent food. Well prepared and presented. Excellent service. Will be back.
The waiter was attentive and had a sense of humor. The restaurant was crowded yet service remained great.
We had the rigatoni with broccolini and sausage. It was incredible. To the point that we wanted to order another dish of the same.
Can’t say enough good things about Mediterraneo. We would go back again and again.
Regular diners here. Lively and fun. Consistently outstanding Italian food. Authentic. Best Italian in Sarasota.
I haven't been back since last season, but it did not disappoint. We went on a lovely night so we ate outside - highly recommend that since sometimes the inside can be noisy. But the people are so nice, and the food is delicious - so all worth it.
Mediterraneo is, and has always been, my favorite restaurant in Sarasota... for 25 years! The food is ALWAYS perfection, the service, without a doubt outstanding. The vibe is warm and inviting and "the place to run into old friends". Drinks are well poured, nice wine list, don't hesitate to experience the best Italian restaurant in Sarasota!
Best overall Italian experience, in Sarasota!
This was our third visit to Sarasota but our first time to Mediterraneo Ristorante Italiano--how disappointing! We loved this place and are certain to come back on our next visit to Sarasota. White tablecloths, cozy, romantic ambiance. Service was attentive and personable. After martinis we each had their amazing Caesar salad. (The secret here is an abundance of Parmesan; what a flavor punch.) We then shared a half bottle of Barolo with excellent linguine/mixed seafood entrees. The pasta was fresh and perfectly cooked. All food here was delicious. We highly recommend Mediterraneo.
Wonder meal couldn’t be better
Always the best meal. Consistent excellence in food and service!
Been going there for 20+ years and it’s such a good feeling to know that it never disappoints!
Always perfect! The Italian owners bring the Italian table to Sarasota. Awesome and authentic.
Excellent meal, great food, perfect service.
Very good pannini nice side salads for lunch
Service was fast attentive and pleasant
Extra twenty minute walk from our downtown condo versus our recent restaurant mix but we’ll make the effort for dinner soon!
Always a great experience and delicious food
Arrived on a Saturday night. Restaurant was very busy. Have been there many times and enjoy the cuisine. On this night, however, the noise level was extremely high and, as a party of 6 seated at a round table, we could not converse with anyone other than those sitting next to a guest.
Will try again, maybe on a day which is not so busy.
Great food, and wonderful service!
Great atmosphere. Service was proficient but not friendly. Food very average. There are much better Italian restaurants in Sarasota.
Outstanding each and every time we come here.
One of our favorites!
Good Food. A bit too loud.
The food was excellent, the server was good although he failed to read us the specials. We were in the back corner so it was quiet but felt like we were in a back room. The menus were a turn-off. Not the selections but the printing of the menu. A small tri-fold laminated menu, something a chain would use.
Great food and service !! Steve and Amy are the very best!
Mediterraneo has been one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota for many years. The food is consistently very good and wines are priced fairly.
Great night of food and fun
Yet another outstanding dining experience!
Always perfect. Our family’s favourite
We had a delicious meal. The restaurant was very busy and service was a bit slow. The only negative comment is that the pecorino and fig spread appetizer is virtually impossible to eat and it was a throw away IMO. Otherwise, we enjoyed everything from branzino to lamb to duck, all excellent.
Awesome as always.
Always outstanding. Never disappoints
As always a fabulous experience. I had lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Great service. Our favorite restaurant in Sarasota!
