Did not like the small space but love their mussels and pizza.

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

I believe Fellini's also owns Ariano's so again, food, service, atmosphere, building is unique and highly recommended and I say this even after they didn't hire me. lol

I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I went on a late and lazy Sunday evening totally on a whim and had the best experience. The food, the wine and the gelato were amazing. Very nice service. I have gone back on subsequent trips. My advice would be to go when it's not too busy so that you can... More

They have an incredible selection of gourmet pizzas. We usually split a pizza and a salad. Nice wine selection.

Great food and a very cool ambiance makes Ariano's a definite choice if dining in Media (unless you want pasta, which they do not serve). The mural on the ceiling was hand painted and depicts the owners life in Italy. Our servers were excellent. I had the salmon special which came well seasoned with a sear on the outside but... More

We always go back here because the food is that good. We have tried many dishes and app's and haven't found anything we don't like. The wine list is not bad either. The staff always tries to find a spot for us even when they are full... all in all its our fav. in Media.

We had dinner here two night ago and it continues to impress. We had two little children with us and they accommodated our group of 6 with no problem. We shared some of the eggplant appetizer, which was very cheesy and delicious and could serve as an entree. I had the special of Salmon and risotto- it was great, the... More
