This our first visit. Fun energy, but the dishes are uneven in flavor. The wedge salad had delicious dressing and a nice side of bacon and blue cheese. The apple and brie flatbread was skimpy-underripe Brie and tasteless slivers of apple, sunflower seeds need toasting. It needs some acid or spice, like a kick of chutney. Crab cake was generous but bland. A good contrasting sauce and less bread crumbs needed. Prawns and polenta-beautifully cooked, creamy, with nice accenting flavors.

We try to eat at Medici once a month! Food, wine, and service are always on point!! I always try something different and have yet to be disappointed!

This was a first visit for 3 of us and the second for two. Nice downtown location, close to the train station. The atmosphere was pleasant and noise level low so that we could carry on a conversation at normal voice level. Service was excellent. Each of us ordered a different entree, ranging from vegetarian to steak, seafood, hamburger, and pizza. All were very satisfied with their order. Two types of bread were served that were baked fresh every morning on the premises. The quality was as good as the bread we get from bakeries in Germany. They willingly substituted a pan-seared tuna with a mango glaze for the three choices listed on the menu which accompanied pasta -perfectly done. The vegetarian dish was creative, spaghetti squash in a Bolognase sause with mushrooms rather than meat. Steak was perfectly done (rare). Accompanyng asparagus was grilled and at just the right level of tenderness. Very interesting and good mac and cheese with smoked Gouda. Hamburger was large and done to order. Pizza had the toppings mixed nicely together with the cheese. Crisp crust, not overdone. Excellent choice of micro-brewery beers and nice selection wines by the glass. Quantity of food was just right, sufficient that I had no room for dessert. Price was reasonable for the quality of the food. I could find no fault in any aspect of the meal and restaurant in general. Overall, this was an excellent dining experience, and we will definitely return when we come back the Normal area.

The food, service, and environment is always better than most, at a minimum. If I'm in normal, this is where I go for a good meal and some good beers.
