The first time we dined at Ariano's, I knew we would be dining there again. Next time my husband and I completed our meal, I told my friend coming into to town that I found THE place for one of the best meals around. I was right! Her husband is a rib counnisoir and he said the ribs were the... More

Amazing authentic pizza. Great wine, and just chill out. Kinda noisy but we go early so it's not bad

The title to this review should give you some sort of clue as to where our standards are when it comes to Italian food. They're high, very high. We were in a rush and needed to get something quickly and so we popped into the first place we found, not even realizing that it was Italian food. Since we were... More

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!
