Get the clams in the bread bowl!

The clams in the bread bowl are excellent! We also had two very good pizzas--one with fontina, spinach and peppers and one with sausage. A good prosecco and Chardonnay as well as a very good Italian beer. We were seated quickly and our service was good. Ariano is enjoyable and has a nice... read more

We went to Media tonight for their Wednesday night out. All tables are on the street. After receiving our round of cocktails, unfortunately all power went out in the neighborhood, probably related to previous storms. We had not even ordered dinner yet. Somehow the management arranged for oven baked pizzas to be delivered to each table. Complimentary!!!! Now how classy... More

Took my wife there on a Friday evening. It was crowded but got a table in the bar area. They have outdoor seating and a second floor as well. We had drinks and my wife had veal piccata and I had Cajun grouper. Both meals were excellent. They have a gelato bar and we topped off our meal with a... More

We were VERY clear about my fiancé's food allergy (onions.) The waitress didn't know what had onions in it or not because the first thing she said definitely didn't have onions actually DID. But she asked and figured it out ahead of time and let us re-order. Now with that FIRM understanding that onions were a no-no, she assured us... More

great servers, with good food and drink ideas. Terrific pizza, served hot and fast. Gelato is as close to Roma as I have had in the states. In the heart of Media. Close to parking

I really liked the atmosphere for a casual dining experiences but not the seating area to small and did not like the steps to go up stairs which is to small to. Did enjoy the pizza and mussels

This place was recommended to us for their pizza. For that, it was mostly a success. However it suffered for service & atmosphere for my visit. We will likely not return except that the Grutola pizza was quite good and that may possibly entice us but we won't sit at the same table. We feel like we wasted $60 and... More

We are regulars here. The pizza is good but I have found ---never order an entree. I ordered an entree last time we visited and again this evening. Last time the meal came without many of the listed items, example no pesto on the veal with pesto. Tonight I order shrimp scampi with veal. I got chicken and the shrimp... More

Our ladies luncheon group decided to try Ariano after hearing very good reviews and we weren't disappointed. I ordered a Della Casa Panini which was filled with portabella mushrooms, prosciutta, mozzarella, pesto, and arugula, while my dining companions tried the blackened tuna. Good choices all around. For dessert I ordered vanilla stracciatella and it was delicious The restaurant has seating... More
