The ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers were as good as I've had anywhere and showed how much care this chef takes with all his work. He raises the zucchini in his own home garden and picks them himself. There is a home-like rapport between the staff and guests. This is an inviting place to go back to over and again.
Always great food and friendly environment. We are customers for over 25 years.
It’s always a wonderful time going to Trattoria! The food is always fresh and delicious. Michele always makes us feel like family whenever we go and it was so nice to dine in again after a crazy year!
Always great food and awesome friendly service! Fresh homemade meals! Outstanding gelato and other desserts.
The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. Service and staff were very pleasant
Every single bite was delicious. Zucchini flowers and antipasto to start were perfectly done. Veal Voldestano was tremendous and cheese ravioli with an incredibly delicious pink sauce. Hazelnut gelato was fabulous. Great service in spite of a very busy evening.
Excellent home made Italian food. Family owned and run. Truly makes you feel at home and that you are part of the family! They not only remember that my wife is gluten free but they remember what she’s eaten recently! Deserts are also home made and delicious. Can’t say enough good about this local favorite.
This was the first time that we dined here. We were seated immediately, everyone was very attentive. The food was amazing. We even ordered two pasta dishes to go to serve over the weekend. We will totally be returning soon!!!
as always, consistently excellent meal with another great overall experience!
Ate outside and it was lovely. It was our first time and won’t be our last! Food was very good as was the service.
The food is always consistently good. The service is wonderful and it’s a BYO. Perfect trifecta for a great night out.
The food was excellent. I loved the special appetizer of zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta. My husband had the pork chop and I had the calamari and shrimp over pasta. Both excellent dishes. My sons dinner- the braciole special was exceptional. Service from waiters and staff was perfect. Celebrated my husbands birthday and we were very impressed that the hostess looked at the occasion in Open Table and brought him a special dessert. Cannolis which were amazing ! We will definitely be back !
Love the food, lots of choices. Desserts excellent! Waiters were above exceptional! Thank you for a great evening!!
Fabulous! Worth every penny-food, service and ambience. Love it!
Always an excellent meal! Anita is an absolute treasure!
The food is always delicious! Perfectly prepared and presented! Waitstaff is friendly and efficient! Always crowded on weekends, a little less so during the week. One of our very favorite places to dine!!

Great food, excellent personal
This was our second dinner at Trattoria Mediterranea, and it was just as wonderful as the first! Excellent food (nice variety of menu dishes and plenty of specials), friendly and efficient service, ambiance befitting a cafe in Italy, and festive diners. We weren't rushed nor were we ignored. Servers were there with a smile and helping hand when we needed them. Can't wait to return. Thank you!
Everything was fresh and delicious. It’s a rarity to find a place that is consistently excellent and this is one of them. If you haven’t eaten here yet do yourself a favor and give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing first time experience!!! Definitely will be back !! Food, service - top notch !!!
It's good local place. I was a little disappointed as the stuffed zucchini flowers were over the top and everything else was good. The pork chop parm at the next table looked amazing and I will be back to try that
What a find! This BYOB gem has an amazing menu with regular specials and the staff is super friendly and attentive. This Italian is definitely a notch above the rest and worth every penny. Linguine with white clam was delicious with plenty of clam, and the shrimp fra diavlo what a great spice kick to it. Highly recommend!
The best restaurant around. Food is delicious and always fresh.
The Best in all that they do.
Always great. Friendly staff. Our favorite local spot.
Good food, slow service
Always a pleasant dining experience here. Chef owned so food is always freshly prepared with nice presentation. Friendly staff and courteous service also a plus.
Food & atmosphere were very good. Will definitely return if I am in the area again
We have been going there since 1994 when they first opened. Been going ever since then and even after we moved out of state in 2011. Whenever we are back in Nj to see family or for business I make my goal to have dinner or lunch there
We are never disappointed!
Always the best, consistently good. Best Chicken Parmigiana I have had out besides my own.
We were celebrating a birthday here which we have done a number of times in the years since the restaurant opened. Lovely neighborhood restaurant , great people, great food for anytime dining!
wow! post-covid and these guys had a TON of service folks! I couldn't believe how attentive they were! didnt wait and we werent rushed. It was fantastic! Food and menu was excellent! (and we're both italian) , portions huge and prices good! what a great surprise!
Food was not the simple Italian food I enjoy - way too many creamed sauces. There was not a single chicken option that didn't have cream, cheese or meat and the same for the fish options. The waiter was attentive and helpful. The price tag was expensive for the area.
Great food and ambience. Excellent service and reasonable prices.
I don't go to restaurants for service and sometimes things happen that can't be confirmed. Bottom line Chef Michele kills it with her food. Fresh ingredients and extra love can be taxed in every bite! Highly recommend home-made pasta.
