Ariano hires the friendliest staff to serve great food at reasonable prices. My favorite spot in Media, as it is dependably quick service and awesome food. I'm never disappointed. great ambiance, wonderful GLUTEN-FREE Pizza with almost endless combinations of toppings. check their website to confirm the nights that are BYOB (currently Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday). When you are on the... More

We ate here last Wednesday during Dining Under the Stars (2 adults, 1 11yo). We ordered the arancini appetizer and then 2 pizzas for dinner. The arancini were cooked perfectly, but a little bland. The sauce that was served with the arancini definitely added a nice flavor. The 2 pizzas we ordered were very good rustic wood oven style -... More

We ate there with friends, the food is OK. Nothing special the gelato was not that good at all and very overpriced. It felt like alot to pay $75 for pizza, beer and gelato for 2 people. The staff was unhelpful, slow and not friendly.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick light bite. Beautiful decor inside. We shared a salad and both had soup. Both were just delicious. Prices were pretty high though. But it's Media so you have to expect that.

We live in town, and we are very partial to their veggie pizzas, which we usually order for take-out. I am a vegan, so I ask for my choice without cheese. I'm sure they think this is a barbaric way to eat pizza, but they comply and I like it fine. The oil makes it nice and moist. My husband... More

We love going to Ariano's on a Friday night around 5 pm. We always ask for a second floor balcony table. Especially on a nice night, the balcony doors are open and you can sit and enjoy the view of downtown media. The salads are great and big enough to share, as well as the appetizers. We usually split one... More

This has become our place for special celebrations and just taking people out. Always excellent food, great service and fair prices. The staff is always pleasant and efficient and this makes for a great dining experience. They have several items on the menu that we specifically come for, as they are the only one that has these items.

Have eaten here several times with friends and always enjoyed a good meal. The restaurant layout takes advantage of a very narrow space, so seating extends over four separate floors. The restaurant is always very lively and the noise can sometimes be a down side- wouldn't really recommend it for a romantic dinner for two. The crowds that I have... More
