    Overall the food was good, great service. I was disappointed with the meatball appetizer. They used to have a delicious tender meatball flavorful appetizer and they replaced it with a fried meatball, with a weird texture and not a lot of flavor. I hope they bring back the original meatball appetizer.

    I had high expectations because of friends reviews but the pasta did not seem to be fresh made. I felt Like the prices were high for the quality of the food. It was good but not amazing.

    The location was a little subpar, but can't complain about the food and service. All staff were very pleasant and helpful. Great team atmosphere. The food was top notch with a limited but with diverse options. I'll be back for sure.

    I was visiting friends in Eugene when we tried Cafe Med Eugene. They had not found a good Italian restaurant after 6 months living in Eugene - now they have. All of our meals were delicious! We started with the arancini, 2 large balls and yummy. I had the Penne arrabbiata, which was a large serving and delicious. One friend had the tortelloni and the other had the fish special and both were very happy with their meals. Our waitress was attentive and helpful. My only negative comment is that it was a small room and moderately loud. The music was way too loud when we sat down, but our waitress lowered it quickly when we asked.

    We enjoyed this little find - close to us - and had a lovely evening dining there. The food was a bit disappointing (boring salad and too fried scallops) but overall we enjoyed being there. The wine we chose was superb, though a bit highly priced - our waitress was warm and friendly. We plan to return :)

    Because of the crowded seating I was overwhelmed by the perfume worn by the woman next to me. She must have spilled the bottle before entering the restaurant. I could actually taste the perfume in addition to smelling it. It ruined the flavor of my food. The food was good. My sauted chard was outstanding and the chicken piccata good. The only disappointment was the amount of salt in the food, which gave me a 2 pound weight gain the following morning. The noise level was high, possibly because the restaurant’s sound system has an overwhelming bass. If they have an equalizer they should tune down the bass. It sounded like a teenager’s car.

    This was our fifth visit to Cafe Med, and we have been delighted every time. The food is the best in the Eugene/Springfield area coupled with a casual atmosphere. The waiters are attentive, and the owners make you feel most welcome. Valentine's Day was made special with a rose for my sweetheart and Italian chocolates for afters. However, do not pass on the desserts. They are scrumptious. This is now our go to restaurant for special events or just an evening of delicious food. Thanks Toby & Rosella.

    The inner room is coziest with a warmer atmosphere than the more windowed front. Menu is good slightly expensive yet quality is good. This is a family owned restaurant. Corkage is $30 of you bring your own wine. The appetizers are excellent, Caesar salad large enough to split between our party of three. Larger than needed portion of the pork yet excellent flavor kist don’t like overly large portions. The pasta and mushroom entree was excellent as was the polenta and mushroom. However I fault the polenta texture more a cream of wheat consistency not the e more rustic stone ground polenta which is preferred. Wine choice good for per glass.
