My husband and I like to go to Trattoria Mediterranean Cuisine every few weeks. The owners are gracious and welcoming. They know our favorite wines. We do have favorites on the menu, but occasionally try a new entree.

And each time we bring friends, they are as pleased as we are. Come and see for yourself.

On our first night on a one week visit to Balboa Island, we cruised up and down Marine Avenue and perused menus. Trattoria Mediterranean looked very good, but it was also full (there are only about 7 tables inside). The owner/waiter/maitre d told us if we'd be willing to wait a few minutes, he could seat us. We only waited about ten minutes and were rewarded with a fabulous meal. My veal napoleone was tender, loaded with flavor and served with a delicate cream sauce. My husband's seafood risotto was equally well prepared as were the caesar salad and caprese salad. Wine list was good and overall we thought the prices reasonable. Atmosphere is super cozy and warm and the waiter/owner is delightful. I would definitely go back next time we're in town.

It is a small restaurant at Balboa island. It was hard to find first. Very calm and peaceful environment. Food was enough for each person. No leftover.

My husband and I have frequented this charming Balboa Island restaurant numerous times. It is truly an Island gem. The food is always extraordinary and the personal service is always phenominal.

We just finished dinner there this evening, celebrating our daughters birthday. Once again . . . we enjoyed the most wonderful evening. The personal attention to detail and service was remarkable and the food was over-the-top delicious!

A true Balboa Island treasure!

Delicious authentic italian food, service is amazing, and ambience is soft and relaxed. They take pride in making their own sauces and even the butter is home made. We ended our meal with a delicious cup of fresh groung coffee. Very good prices!
