Have been dining at Mediterraneo for several years now. Fabulous food and service.
Very disappointed. Salads dressed in heavy dressing. Sauce for pasta heavy with tomato paste. Flounder overly breaded. Tartufo seemed like it was in the freezer for long time and prepared weeks ago.
There are many superior options if you crave authentic Italian dining.
Mediterraneo is a great local Italian restaurant in Pleasantville. The management and the service is always very warm and professional. The food is reliably excellent. The atmosphere is upbeat, just lively enough without being loud. And the bar is a nice place to enjoy a drink. This is not achieved easily or by accident -- kudos to Mediterraneo for always working hard to deliver a nice experience all around.
As a frequent patron I am never disappointed with this restaurant.
Every aspect of it is wonderful.
The veal stew over polenta was exceptional. I always start with the stuffed artichoke which reminds me of being in my Grandma's kitchen.
This is my favorite place to go to for Italian food!
Son’s birthday. Enjoyable & good food. Nice evening.
This was our first time here. The service and the food was great. We were not rushed which made for a nice meal. The only issue that I had, not being familiar with the streets and relying on navigation was that the websites directions got us lost, my cars navigation got us closer but not to the door. After driving in circles for 25 minutes finally came in from another direction and saw the resturant. Other than that I can't wait to go back.
Always a wonderful choice!!! Great food, ambiance and service!!
The service was great and the food very good and excellent value. We were very pleased.
I'm very picky about my Italian food.(Italian heritage and raised on all homemade Italian food.) It was decent food, but excellent reviews left me expecting more. Eggplant parmigiano was okay but definitely not in my top 10. Maybe it wasn't sliced thin enough. My partner ordered chicken parm and was served veal. He's good natured and ate it, but we really don't eat veal ever (on principle) so when the waiter told him he had ordered veal, we had to laugh to eachother. (He had asked about another dish that ended up having veal in it, so perhaps that was the confusion. ) We had the protiferole (sp?) dessert which said it was filled with cannoli cream; it was filled with ice cream. Go figure! As for the positive, the stuffed artichoke was very good and nice to see on the menu, the Merlot was one of the best glasses of wine I've ever had, and the wait staff were very kind and attentive. It's a toss up if we go back. Maybe for appetizers and Merlot!
This was my first time here, but my husbands been here many times w friends. Food was excellent and service exceptional!
Will definitely add this place to our regular dining spots. We shared the dreams mussels w garlic & wine and the Sole franchise was excellent, soo fresh and very large portions (took half home), my husbands Choppino was excellent and very fresh. Beyond 5* here! Thank you! We will be back soon!...
Great for an intimate dinner. Food has never disappointed!!
Mediterraneo is a lovely setting. Consistently good food and very friendly service. We go there often.
Love this place. Food very good and the wait staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating.
Excellent restaurant. Good value, dependably good food! We are always happy to eat here.
We are never disappointed with this restaurant. Food and service always great. Lou was our waiter. Very personable and attentive.
Artichoke and profiterole exceptional as are the entrees.
I had lunch here twice this past month. The space is very pretty and the help is very, very nice. The food was good and I wouldn't hesitate to return!
Have been here several times and have never been disappointed.
Carmine was our server and we could not have asked for better.
This is my Favorite restaurant!
We go here frequently and the food is always fabulous. Best piece of fish anywhere. They never disappoint!
Picked this restaurant based on OpenTable reviews for a business Meeting lunch and as always it lived up to the reviews. The portions were nice size and appetizers delicious. Stuffed clams and calamari were great. Service was good. We were the only ones there at noon on a Wednesday.
Always a good choice for quality, cleanliness and service
Loved our dining experience. Food & wine was excellent, wait staff did not rush us. We will be back often.
Outstanding service from our server. Very attentive. Great food. Thanks
All fine. Just a little hard to find.
Very excellent and accommodating AS ALWAYS.
Very handicap accessible.

Excellent in every respect. Staff was attentive, friendly and welcoming. Food was delicious -- whether one of the specials or off the menu. We will be definitely be back.
reliably good food, good service. nice atmosphere. great neighborhood standby.
excellant food and value. definately will go back again
I started going here years ago and always felt the food is authentic and fresh.... Never lets me down. I am a Sicilian/Italian and I can count on this restaurant to bring back memories of my grandma's kitchen. BRAVO!!!
Excellent Mother’s Day meal!
We had a party of 6 for mother’s day at 2:00. We were promptly seated. We stared with fried calamari and baked clams and the arugula beet salad. The calamari was tender and the baked clams were tasty- whole with bread crumbs done old school. Everyone enjoyed their main courses. The portions were large, several of us took half home. I loved how they were serving the regular menu in Mother’s Day. I had a halibut special, done in a Chardonnay broth with clams, chorizo corn and potatoes. Very nice . My daughter had the Veal Braciole with Gnocchi- the gnocchi were like clouds she proclaimed! Other dishes were penne vodka, sole piccata , chicken franchese and the salmon. All delicious. The picky grandma’s ate way more than normal and loved their meals . These women do not give complements easily! Highly recommend for any occasion or just a nice meal in a nice setting.
This was our second time, the first time was a date night and this time we brought our kids with us and we loved it both times. The food is so good; I love that they have a menu that has a nice combo of unique meals, but offer some classics too! We all loved our dinner choices and the service was awesome. Our waiter was really attentive, gave us great recommendations and was very pleasant. We will definitely be back:)
We were a group of 8, family and friends. The ease of the Open Table reservation was wonderful. We chose a variety of Italian selections, and all of us were pleased. The zucchini blossoms appetizer were popular. The calamari were attractively served, but not as crispy as the menu suggested - too bad. All in all, a wonderful evening.
Went there on a Saturday night. The service staff were professional and friendly and the food was great!
Great local spot, been a staple for years in Pleasantville, consistently good food!
Had a very nice time. The food was excellent - my wife and i both ordered dinner specials, and were both extremely happy with it. Service was good but not great. Had no complaints about the service, but there were a few little things that you would expect in a mid- to upscale-restaurant that we didn't get (e.g. my wife and I split an appetizer, and had to ask for separate plates, then only received one plate and it was an entree sized plate). With that said, will definitely go back.
The server was very slow with our wine order and the bottle of SB house came warm. I had to have him chill it for another 20mins. My wife found the vongola to be very dry and the stuffed artichoke was full of garlic and no taste. I wanted to love this place but left us feeling not satisfied. Sorry
Have eaten here many times. Good whenever I want a relatively quiet place with good traditional Italian food. Also very accommodating to requests for some of my favorite dishes . All and all ,a very pleasant dining experience . I will keep returning.
The restaurant was very busy on a recent Saturday night with many people who appeared to be regulars. Two of the diners in the group enjoyed their meals. I chose the cioppino--a mistake. It was very bland and the seafood was overcooked. I wouldn't return to this restaurant any time soon.
