My husband and I had dinner with another couple at Trattoria Mediterranea. The food was good. Ordered the cod fish in livornese sauce. A little strong on the capers so don't order if you don't like capers. The service was very good. Waiters were friendly and attentive. I thought it was a bit pricey considering it's a BYOB. However, would recommend.

Excellent food, great service, very nice owners!

Noise level was terrible with the full restaurant. All surfaces in the restaurant are hard - floor tile, walls and ceiling. As the restaurant filled, the noise volume rose as patrons spoke louder to be heard. I suggest they install carpet and acoustic panels on the wall or ceiling.

Besides the noise, an excellent restaurant.

The food is always excellent. They offer very good gluten free pasta. And it is a BYO. If you haven’t tried it yet, you must.

Too noisy, no ambiance at all! Salad was delicious. Did not care for the swordfish with shrimp, or the mixed seafood with pasta. Cheese was not fresh grated Parmesan, just a big bowl of cheese. Ricotta cheesecake with berries was delicious. Owner is lovely. I would say with so many good restaurants in the area, this one is nothing special.

I ordered the eggplant parmigiana as an appetizer which was made perfectly with a light breading and ricotta cheese. We ordered off the specials menu and I had the short ribs with polenta and broccoli rabe and my husband had the monk fish with shrimp and a pink sauce over pasta. Everything was delish! We’ve been here many times and always enjoy our dinner. The service is superb and our food always comes out quickly.

We had not been here in several years, not for any particular reason. We enjoyed thoroughly. Decided to go early as did recall it can get way too loud. That is still true, as when we were leaving, the noise level was too much for us. The food, service and selection is what brings you back! Everyone is friendly and welcoming and we will go back soon.

This restaurant is a nice place to enjoy a good meal in a comfortable environment! The chef is receptive to preparing special orders even though the menu is varied and there are several specials daily. The service is always attentive, friendly and courteous. You are able to dine without being rushed or served too slowly. The desserts are made on the premises and are delicious. Enjoy!

Located in a small strip mall this is a hidden gem that has a dedicated following. We shared the clams and mussels in a light tomato broth appetizer and while the seafood was perfectly prepared the sauce is the star here (make sure to ask for extra rolls). Moving on to the main course we had the Veal Valdastano (served with veggies and roasted potato) and Veal Parmesan with homemade rigatoni. The quality of the veal was outstanding and both dishes were delicious- might be the best veal parm I have ever had and pasta was cooked to perfection. Portions are generous also. Its quite noisy so if you like quiet dining this is not the place for you. Reservations are a must on weekends. BYO.

Just way to loud!!!! I couldn't hear anyone talk.
My rigatoni would have been good but I had about 1/4 pasta and 3/4 baby meatballs which aren't very good.

But food is decent usually. Servce wasn't great this time.
But I cant go back just because of the noise level.

Tattoria is our go to place for no occasion or a special occasion. The food is always excellent and the service is phenomenal. The staff works together amazingly well and that insures the service is second to none. Anita came through with delicious peanut butter gelato and it was excellent. I have recommended and brought friends to the restaurant and all have been as impressed as I am!

We tried the Trattoria Mediterranea for the first time for Valentines dinner based on prior reviews. Those reviews were correct. The service is old-school Italian, very on top of everything. The food was outstanding and very nicely presented. They will split items without a fuss and it's BWO!
We'll add this one to our list of go-to places. Note, the parking is behind the building and tight but doable.

This restaurant is fantastic, authentic Italian food. Close your eyes and you will imagine yourself somewhere along the Amalfi coast...we’re from Salerno.

Everything on the menu is exceptional; however , don’t make your decision until you’ve heard the specials.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tuna arrabiata. Perfect piece of sushi grade tuna ensconced in a beautiful spicy sauce.

For dessert, you must try the authentic gelato.
