Trattoria Mediterranea Ratings and Reviews
We arrived at 6:45, and dining room was relatively empty. We were seated next to a table of 4 who were all LOUD talkers, with one gentleman being EXTREMELY loud and he was discussing some rather personal things. As out dinner went on, and more people came in, the noise level became so offensive, I could hardly hear my husband who was seated next to me. I think the volume of the dining room was too much for the wait staff, as they seemed to be scarce, we had to ask for more water couple of times. We had salad and a meal, and would have stayed for dessert, had we been able to hear one another. The food was good but not phenomenal enough to brave the loudness again. It’s a shame, as we have loved going there in the past.
If you’ve been to Italy, or your mom is Italian you’ll love Trattoria Mediterranea. This is authentic Italian food, prepared in authentic style.
We started with an antipasto, just brilliant. From the home made sausage to the arrancini and mozzarella with tomato, I could make my meal.
My baked cod was perfect. The cod was beautifully fresh and delicious, prepared in the oven with breadcrumbs and tomatoes.
Our party also enjoyed the pork cutlet parmigiana, linguini ala vongole marichiaro, and the fresh gnocchi with eggplant.
You really should try Trattoria Mediterranea it’s a great place to enjoy real Italian fare.
As usual, a great meal with super service. Love this place. I almost always go for the special because I think I’ve tried everything on the regular menu. Its BYO so it’s a great value, too. Had the fried artichoke hearts and the Black Bass tonight. Both were great.
This is our favorite restaurant by far. The food is always excellent and the staff is terrific! This is our go to place for any occasion! This happened to be our anniversary but we come here for birthdays and whenever we want a casual, excellent no hassle meal. As usual Anita made us peanut butter ice cream which was creamy and delicious. You can not go wrong visiting Trottoria Mediterranea!
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.
