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.

Came here for a third time with my sister recently, we shared a pizza and my sister also got the chicken soup special. Food was good, service was good, all around another fantastic dinner.

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

eating at Ariano is always a treat. The staff is friendly, helpful , and attentive. Great ambiance, like eating in a small village. Fresh homemade gelato daily, ask for a taste. Prices are reasonable and the sizes are ample. Sunday and Monday nights is BYOB wine. Live, classical guitar on Monday nights. Ariano is my favorite in Media, they'll customize... More
