Nice Italian Restaurant on the main street. The eggplant appetizer and seafood risotto were both excellent. The service started well but when the restaurant filled up, our waiter struggled to keep up.

Had a very good experience here last weekend. We were given a choice of where we wanted to sit and selected a table by the entrance, near the window. The bartender was our server and she was very attentive to our needs despite working the bar as well. Excellent service. Had the antipasto to start, and it was a generous... More

This was a chance encounter and a very fortuitous one! On our way to a seafood restaurant where we had a reservation, we stopped to look at the menu of this one. A person leaving this restaurant stopped to rave about the food. We canceled our other reservation and ate here, instead. Lucky us! For starters, the Callia Alta Malbec... More

The place was packed which is fine. Manager was pleasant as we waited for a seat. To start my salad was served on a plate that was warm. First they brought me the wrong meal(waitress mistake) then they came back with two more meals and my wifes was wrong. Third time they got it. I had a special stuffed chicken... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time last Saturday.Large portions but nothing special.The chicken mediterraneo was good but not great. The veal cutlet was very thick and very disappointing.The prices are reasonable and reflect the fair quality. Nice atmosphere and great service. I will try again in the Fall.

We first found this restaurant in our travels in Portsmouth during a spring visit and vowed to be back. So reservations were made. Upon our arrival we were seated promptly, and served an fantastic meal. We all have... More

On a monthly basis, this Café Restaurant has become the one place I can rely on. Bringing a client or friend for dinner turns into an evening out-of-time. Conscientious service, beautifully arranged servings, and an atmosphere where you can talk. You may find many in town that cost more, but few that match this gem.

My girlfriend was visiting from out of state for a before the season vacation and we were starving! Many restaurants Portsmouth NH were not yet serving lunch. Cafe Mediterraneo was the third place we stopped and certainly third was the charm. There were many options we would have certainly enjoyed but we both zeroed in on the Porcini Raviolis in... More
