This place was decent Italian food but is nothing special. The staff was very friendly and attentive though!

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

My husband and I were able to be seated right away later on in the evening in May without reservations. The service was good and we both really liked our pasta dishes. The portions are somewhat big.

There were 6 of us for a reunion dinner. Our waitress was attentive and our dinners delicious. We tried everything from the house salad, fish, chicken and seafood. Also good wine selections. We were very happy and pleased with our dinner choices. It was lively and a bit loud but everyone was enjoying. There was something for everyone on the... More

We recently enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent! Our waitress, who had just started, was attentive and kind. One area I would suggest the restaurant improve would be either the lighting at the table or the size of the font used for the menu-very hard to read the choices even when... More

Good service but very average food served at lunchtime. Ambiance a bit sad. The scallop sauce was bland and uninspired. Perhaps it was pre season blues.

Stopped in over Easter weekend for dinner. My wife ordered the filet mignon, she said it was one of the best she ever had, it was grilled to perfection, I opted for the salmon with lobster raviolis, and I must also say that it was excellent. We are both fans of Italian desserts and we weren't disappointed when we ordered... More
