Excellent food and service. Authentic owners and staff. The calamari and salads were great. My friends enjoyed the pizza and veal dishes.
Wonderful, authentic Italian food. We spent two months in Italy this summer and if Mediterraneo had been near us, we would have eaten there repeatedly. Highly recommend.
The service is efficient and attentive. Not romantic due to the high noise level, but it is a typical level of noise for a bistro. My husband had a very good Cesar salad. I had the roasted peppers tower, excellent. The rigatoni was some of the best I've had. Black angus steak was perfect with yummy Gorgonzola!! Real Italian. We... More
.....if you want to have a conversation. Yes , its a busy and noisy place, but that has a lot to do with people having a good time . I would be a lot more worried if it were quiet and subdued with nobody waiting to get in. The food is excellent , and the staff attentive. The water glasses... More
This establishment is on up main street across from the movie theater. We were fortunate to get in at last minute on a Friday; this place gets busy. They did not disappoint. The veal was outstanding as was the portion size. Great service and ambiance. Good wine list. Only improvement would be in the bread that is provided; was a... More

We regularly hit Mediterraneo during visits to Sarasota. Always happy with the food, service, and wine. However, the restaurant was re-designed not long ago, and the front of the house has suffered. The entry way is very cramped and does not allow people to leave or enter the restaurant easily. Essentially, it is a single lane road for two way... More
This is a high energy and noisy restaurant. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner select another place. The crowd is a mixed bag of patrons, great for people watching. If you want casual dining, reserve a table in the front with a view of their Tuscan wood burning oven behind the bar. The main dining room is a... More
This is my favorite place to go for lunch. I work near this place, which is close to several restaurants, but I often choose Mediterraneo because they offer healthy choices. The have great salads with arugula, fennel, avocado, and other veggies that you don't find in many restaurants. Also, the value for what you get is incredible. When I have... More
We met some friends there, the maitre said they were late. They had already been seated. The noise level made conversation difficult. If you were more than one seat away from the speaker - could not hear. Good for secrets, not good for being social.
