Trattoria Mediterranea Ratings and Reviews
We went to the restaurant for my sons bday party . The food didn’t taste good at all, me and my dad both ordered fish which was horrible , after a few bites we were done . Even appetizers didn’t taste good . We never had such a bad experience of food choices especially on a special occasion . Very disappointing
This restaurant was very busy and clearly a gathering place for groups and families. Everyone seemed happy to be there and several tables talked with the wait staff indicating they were frequent diners. There were many specials and plenty to choose from including classic American Italian and true Italian dishes. The parking lot is awful but very easy to get into the building as there are no stairs or barriers. The staff was friendly and professional. We just weren't impressed with the food. The bread was great but the meals were just so so. The sauce on my meal was gritty and overly thickened, and the presentation was just awful grey brown. Non of the meals tasted like we wanted to come back. The fresh rose on the table, the decor and the beautiful bathroom are all pluses. But I wouldn't go back.
You will love this restaurant. It's authentic Italian cuisine, in a cozy environment with great service and a warm welcoming environment.
The entire staff is friendly, is incredibly proud of the house and knows the menu.
It's almost like eating at mom's...but you don't have to help with the dishes.
A family favorite with great food and service. It would benefit from some sound-dampening decor. A full bar would also be an awesome addition!
That said - it remains a favorite with reliably great food and is a straight walk-in from parking which helps the more senior members of our family.
The restaurant was very noisy and too dimly lit. There seemed to be a smokiness from cooking in the air. Service was good but slow. Despite these drawbacks, the appetizers and salads were OK, with the entrees and desserts being excellent, especially the pork chops, however prepared, and the tartuffo, among the best ever!
Good food good service would definitely recommend to those who enjoy fine Italian food. Our waiter knew the menu in detail and was able to answer any questions. The service was professional and efficient. The only downside was the sound level which sometimes made it difficult to converse. We will be back.
Home made pasta was delicious, nice fresh salad, service terrific, many menu choices, food is always delicious. price appropriate. casual dining, nice atmosphere, BYO, focus on food, service outstanding. Great fish dishes. Have been there many times, Love it!
We used to frequent Trattoria Mediterranea 20 years ago. We moved for a short time and upon returning to the area always said we should return. Last evening was our return, and we had a fantastic meal. From the welcome through the meal, just wonderful.
We shared a special antipasti for two. Homemade sausage, arrancini, roasted peppers, mozzarella, prosciutto and more. Incredible, just like mom's.
We then shared s special gnocchi with a light cream. These gnocchi were some special. Very light, and wonderful texture. The secret was ricotta. For the purists, it may sound Luke a cavatelli, but is was definitely gnocchi.
For our mains we enjoyed a pork cutlet Milanese, pounded paper thin. Crisp and delicious.
We also had a special short rib. Beautiful flavor and the meat would melt in your mouth.
Dessert and coffee, affogado and small cannoli...what a treat...my only regret...why'd we wait so long.
Don't wait, book your table now!
Initially I was brought the incorrect main dish which contained sausage. I requested to switch since i am allergic to sausage and i was told it was a computer glitch that they brought the incorrect meal. The follow up meal was brought out in a few additional minutes. I found the sauce on my pasta dish to be unremarkable. I remember it being better a couple of years ago when I was a more regular customer.
Food and service were great and prices are reasonable. It is also a BYOB which helps cut down on the cost. The only negative was the bug in the olive oil which landed on my bread plate. It was pretty disgusting and it would have been nice if the restaurant tried to make up for it by comping us a dessert or some token.
We've been coming to Trattoria Mediterranea since they opened in 1994. Food and service is give the same high level of attention now as then. The house special appetizer is a MUST. The simplest salad is out of this world and we love the fish preparations - any and all. A jewel in Somerset County.
Didn't realize premises did not have a liquor license. While waiting for dinners to be prepared went out and bought a bottle of nice cabernet which the restaurant proprietor graciously served. Lots of local clientele. Waiter seemed disappointed when he realized we were seeking only a light meal instead of multiple courses.
I have been there many times before but last night was different , the service was very poor , once our waiter took our order we never saw him again . We had to ask for our plates to be removed and then for the waiter to service us coffee and dessert , too bad I really liked this place until last night
Very good moderately priced BYOB Italian in a nice setting. Food was well prepared and dishes included home made bucatini. Red sauce was excellent. Quality ingredients on our pork chop parmigiana, monk fish in red sauce and bragiole in brown sauce. I would definitely return if I'm in that area of NJ.
This restaurant is one of our favorite places to dine...and with good reason! The staff are friendly and make us feel at home. They always will stop by and greet us, even when it is very busy, which it often is. The food arrives at the table with perfect timing..no rush but no extended wait. It arrives hot, perfectly seasoned, and as ordered.
We look forward to our next visit!
