The food is always great! Very authentic
What a delight to find the restaurant humming with activity on a rainy Sunday evening. That tells you something about a place, being packed on an off night. Despite the crowd we were seated promptly and our server Amy made sure we were well cared for all night. We came hungry - risotto, veal, shrimp, chicken, and scallop dishes were ordered and they were all great. I think we have a new favorite Italian restaurant in Sarasota.
Food and service are excellent.....can be a little noisy, though.
Love this restaurant. We get well-prepared and presented food consistently. Just wish there was a way to make it less noisy.
Mediterraneo provides first-class service with knowledgeable staff and a delicious dining experience.
Very great food and service. Authentic Italian. Perfect place to spend our Mother’s day!
Amy is a terrific, very professional server who loves her job. She made our first visit really memorable. She knows the menu and guided us first -timers beautifully. Every dish was outstanding. We felt welcome and sated in an authentic Italian way. Grazia. Highly recommended. You can’t go wrong.
we have been patrons at the restaurant for over 21 years and we never fail to enjoy the delicious
cuisine and the warm hospitality of the hosts. It is a restaurant we enjoy with our friends who appreciate excellent Italian cuisine and welcoming managers.
Always a great meal here. The fish tonight had an apricot and almond wine reduction that was delicious.
We were a party of 8; 4 were first-timers. Excellent attentive service, excellent and generous meals, as always. All 8 of us will return.
My husband and I eat out a lot. Mediterraneo is our first choice/go to place. We feel like special guests and adore Amy, our favorite server.
Amazing service as always.
Amy was awesome. The specials were so amazing it was hard to decide which ones to go with. The staff feel like family and welcomed us so warmly. Loved every minute and every morsel!
Top five of my favorite dining restaurants. Food and service is always superb!
Great food and service by Amey and Stevd
By far our favorite Italian restaurant in Sarasota. The food is just delicious. And now that it isn't season, you can actually get a table!
One of our favorites in Sarasota. Have been coming to this restaurant for at least 15 years! Always accommodating and the owners are wonderful. Food is plentiful and they always throw in a little extra something to eat! Everyone we take to this restaurant says it's their favorite!
had a great dinner at mediterraneo. the service was great even on a busy night. the food was al prepared as requested. would definately return.
The food was very good. Unfortunately, the menu is totally a la cart which becomes quite costly.
Service was superb. We always like a restaurant that has linen napkins and tablecloths. We loved the salads, but were less impressed with the entrees. But, overall, very good and very convenient location.
The food was excellent but the service so rushed. There was not s second to relax over our drinks. The salad came immediately as did the second course. I fret like they could not get us out fast enough.
The food and service are always excellent!!
This very loud, chaotic restaurant served up great Italian food. The server had a lot of people to attend to, but managed well. We enjoyed the lasagna with bechemel, penne with chicken, peas, and mushrooms, and chicken parm. Full bar and pricey wine list.
Ernesto (our waiter) was just outstanding. Made the evening great.
The food was good but the service was slow. Its a noisy place.
Busy bustling authentic Italian restaurant. Abundant portions of good southern Italian cooking. Noisy but fun atmosphere unless you go to the back room
The best Italian food in Sarasota. Steve and Amy are tremendous wait staff.
We arrived at the time of our reservation with a nice bottle of red wine from our cellar. The waiter greeted us and the left to retrieve two wine glasses. Had he mentioned the $35.00 corkage charge, I probably would have taken a closer look at the wine list. No mention of a corkage charge more than double the amount usually charged is not acceptable. I usually tip the waiter on the food AND corkage charge, not this time.
Loved everything! Will be back when back in Sarasota. Thank you!
Awesome! Everything out of the pizza oven especially great. Good wine choices.. overall one of our faves in Sarasota
Love this restaurant - Wish they had a bigger bar. That's the only negative. Food and service is fabulous
Amazing food. Attentive service and very nice. An incredible value for the price.
Amazing experience! We visit this place every time we go to Sarasota :)
Went with family and friends. Overall , nice selection and decent value . Good but not great
The food was very good. Everything came hot and served at the same time
We were there for a friend's 50th birthday dinner and the food and service was fantastic! We would definitely go again.
Wonderful experience. Food excellent as usual. Calamari appetizer was delicious. Enjoyed the meal and attentive service.
