We always have agreat meal here with great service at a fair price.
The worst dining ever. We will never be going back to this restaurant
Overall a very good restaurant - Service and food/value.
Nice wine list & drink list.
I will definitely keep this restaurant on the must go to -- go back list.
The one and only issue we had with Mediterraneo is the noise level -- tables are too close together, very difficult to carry on conversations.
We both enjoyed our meal - very attentive service - would definitely return - it was our first visit and did not disappoint.
Some excellent dishes--eggplant stack,lemon caper sauce on salmon--and some mediocre offerings. Veal marsala was so so and black linguine with shrimp had hardly any shrimp.
Excellent food and the service from the bartender, Eddie, was outstanding
Very good meal. Was well worth the drive. Make it a point to go every time we visit Anna Maria Island.
Food is reminiscent of our visit to Italy a few years ago. Truly excellent. The service is as good as you could expect: knowledgeable, attentive, but not overbearing.
Great menu choices and good service. Food is well prepared. Always unique and tasty specials
We took guests and we hadn’t been there in a long time. All of us enjoyed our meals and our waitress was very helpful. We will go again!
Service was great and the food was delicious. Been here many times.
Our party of four had a very nice dinner. We were seated in the back room which is much quieter than the main dining room. Our food was delicious and well prepared.
My only complaint was that when my husband and I said we’d share an entree the server said he’d bring it in two plates and the individual servings would be more than what would be on a regular serving. We said that was fine. One of the other individuals in our group ordered the same entree. We noticed when the meals arrived that our combined portions looked less than our friend’s entree who had a full serving on one plate. We didn’t think much about it as we weren’t that hungry until the bill arrived. There was a $6 fee for dividing the entree and “getting more than the normal serving”, which sounded good in theory but surely wasn’t t the case. Our comment to the staff resulted in his statement that this was an automatic charge and expressed no interest in addressing our concern regarding the smaller serving.
My advise is that if you want to share an entree at Mediterraneo, simply have one person order the selection then have the staff bring an extra plate. We dine there regularly but this was the first time we’ve encountered this annoying practice.
Great menu. Many items to choose.
Service was fantastic.
Great food and service. A tad noisy but is very busy because it is do good
We absolutely LOVE Mediterraneo!! The food is delicious and beautifully presented. And most importantly, it is consistently this way.
It is our favorite restaurant in Sarasota.
Mediterraneo is one of the best restaurants in Sarasota. It is consistently great........food is ALWAYS delicious and cooked to perfection, service warm and friendly, lovely all around. I could eat there every night as there are so many choices that are always delicious. We're so happy to have this restaurant here in Sarasota.
The food was excellent. I had a Veal Marsala. The sauce was the best I’d ever tasted. The service was superb. It was a bit noisy. Noticed a back room which we would ask for next time. It seemed quieter there and since it was Friday, the bar was busy. It would have been nicer to be away from the bar area.
Normally, this place has great food and average service. Tonight, the host, normally ambivalent, did not disappoint. Our table was in an open walkway, we were rushed through our meal and my friend's wife got sick that night.
Food was delicious I had veal scalapini which was wonderful. The presentation was lovely on our meals. The noise level was not great very noisy
Great ambiance. Wonderful menu. Attentive service.
Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and the owner could not have been more pleasant. It was a fun night with old friends, and the food was great.
Mediterraneo is excellent--one of Sarasota's finest restaurants. We split the Carpaccio appetizer which was terrific. For her entree, my wife had the Bucatini--it was outstanding. I gambled and had the sautéed Calamari for my entree. It was good but there are so many other, likely better, items on the menu I'll probably never get it again. But we'll definitely come back to Mediterraneo.
Service was friendly and very efficient. We all loved our meals and dessert. Authentic Italian food. I had stone fired pizza and others had pasta with fresh mozzarella and sea someday perfectly. Caprese Salata was fresh. Dessert was a light mousse with hazelnut, which was not too sweet, but definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
The restaurant had a great atmosphere with good servers. Host was very Italian. Good was great. Only negative is that it's pretty noisy inside.
Waiter seemed very impersonal
Just took our order and gave us our check
Only downside to our evening at this restaurant
Fantastic authentic Italian food from start to finish! Can’t wait to return!
Great, authentic Italian food served by gracious people at an excellent value point. My favorite restaurant in Sarasota.
Outstanding food and service. Outside dining is much quieter than inside...both are nice in different ways so it just depends on what type of experience you are looking for.
Excellent meal. Requested substitutions for pasta choices readily accommodated. Wonderful wine. Attentive wait staff. Speedy delivery of meals. Greeted by friendly host upon arrival and thanked by same friendly host as we were leaving. Would definitely return.
They put us at a round table as requested and the table was available on early arrival. The one down side is that the dining room is very noisy. The food was excellent including the Med fish special and the Gorgonzola steak. This is our third time at the restaurant and we will return.
Absolutely fabulous authentic Italian food, wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious desserts! We eat here with the family everytime we are in town training with the kids at IMG. Fantastico!
Everything and everybody was just perfect!
We love the food, the service, the location, the ambiance - - everything about La Mediterraneo!
Restaurant was crowded and our server was tending to too many tables. The service was slow. We were a party of 8 seated at too small of a table which was uncomfortable. 7 of 8 of us thought the food was excellent.
Wonderful cuisine and excellent service, highly recommended.
Waiter was attentive until we were ready to leave; then, we couldn’t find him.
Our waiter was wonderful but very overwhelmed. They need more wait staff, especially on a Saturday night. The food was excellent as always but we had to keep asking for cutlery.
Ordered pasta w just butter for child, cane w white sauce. Ordered pizza and came out wrong. Usually right on and consistent
