Ariano is by far the best restaurant in Media! Anthony's attention the smallest detail in designing the restaurant, the excellent menu and simply the best Italian around contributes to its incredibly enthusiastic fans. We always dine here during "dining under the stars" and love to have a romantic evening on nights during the winter. Great place for all occasions.

Ariano is a dining experience that should not be missed. The attention to detail in the design and to the food is unmatched. Much like its sister eatery Fellini's cafe the staff and food are exceptional. Chef Anthony continues to lead the pack when selecting where to dine in Media.

Ate here for lunch. They had a stand at the weekend's Media Fair where you could buy a small slice of pizza with caramilized onions that was so good we couldn't wait to try the restaurant. So disappointed. They left the front door open and there were flies. The walls leading to the upstairs restaurant were black with where hands... More

We took our son's family with 2 kids aged 5 and 2 and the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. They do have a children's menu, but ours just ate the bread and butter! We ordered a pizza for an appetizer for the table and the crust was a little burnt, but it tasted ok. Our dinners were great. This... More

Ariano's has good food and they're very accommodating to people with dietary restrictions. I have a gluten intolerance and am also lactose intolerant so it's nice to be able to eat out and have no issues. The risotto and paninis are delish. The pizza looks good too! Service is good too.

Great beer selection. Good happy hour food menu. Stylish decor and friendly wait staff. Interesting pizza selection - something out of the ordinary - but well prepared and fun to try new combinations.

The eggplant parmesan at this place is out of this world good! They have a nice wine selection and daily specials. It's small but the food is outstanding!

My family and I came here for one of the Dinner Under the Stars evenings (Wednesdays in the summer in Media, all the restaurants open their doors and set up in the street). The food was surprisingly good! I expected just a regular pizza place, but every dish we had was fantastic. My kids had a big plate of cioppino,... More

Nice local place. Lower level is appropriate for family's with children. Good pizza and gelato. Upstairs more of a adult atmosphere. Great menu and food. It is small so be prepared to be close to other tables. It can get rather loud when busy. But still one of my favorite places in Media

Out party of four all had different pizzas. Everyone like their pizza We then shared, yes they were all good. We ate upstairs outside, the night had a cooling breeze, made it even better. Enjoyed everything. Hope this helps you make a decision.
