It’s a great place for lunch and brunch! Our family has done both, during parent visits to ISU. The service is great, with friendly faces and quick service. The brunch menu was great, not an unhappy person at a table of five. The Challah French...More

Had a fun road trip with my best friends. Went to Medici twice. Both times I ordered the pizza and my friends ordered the burgers. We are hooked on this food and atmosphere. Our waiter was Charles. He was super sweet and attentive. Just right....More

We come here often while visiting our daughter at ISU. Fine for our visits, but nothing special. Uptown prices for pub grub. Their burgers are good, but everything else is fair and overpriced. Crab cake is one cake priced as two. Taco special OK but...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and was close by....we walked. We were very tired, and wanted a relaxing place to have dinner. Lively, but easy going...not over the top. I had pasta, my husband had the ribeye. Everything was very good. Great choice...More

We make it a point to go to Medici for lunch every time we are in Bloomington. The service is great, food is outstanding, and priced right. I love the Beef Stroganoff, and they have a great bloody mary bar. The pizza is good too.

Food was pretty good. I love their mango or Hawaiian style tilapia burger. Also, VERY good brunch! Great upscale place to chill for Sunday brunch! I return to that place for really their awesome atmosphere. Great, local restaurant!

Great food and service. Although it was ISU move-in weekend we got a table fast. The seafood pasta, the Cajun rice and burgers were great. The server brought a delicious ice cream dessert with a candle to celebrate my son's 21st. They have ample seating.

There is an awkward little free lot behind Medici, where everyone always seems to be driving the wrong direction on the one way portions. There is any entrance to Medici, so that is convenient. You can also park on the... More
