The food is always delicious! Fresh, bold flavors with traditional backbone. Bronzino with steamed clams haricot vert was excellent. CoVid outdoor dining is what it is, and Trattoria Mediterranea have done the best they can with the tiny space allowed. Go! Enjoy!

The zuppa de pesce was one of the best I've ever had. The seafood was fresh and tasty, not like some of the rubbery studmff I've had in the past. The swordfish w shrimp was excellent. Just another happy meal at a a place ive been going to for years.

Food and service are excellent!! BYOB is a plus! However, the noise level is so high that I would not recommend for a Romantic dinner.

It is always such a pleasure to dine at this wonderful restaurant. The food and service are excellent, and consistently so. The homemade pasta is to die for! It is a busy little place, so reservations are a must on the weekends. Bring your own bottle and be prepared to be spoiled!

The food was very good. The pasta definitely tastes homemade. The quality of the food was fresh. My husband had the sword fish special and it was flavorful and moist. We had antipasto for 2 and everything was delicious. My favorite was the sausage....I understand it is homemade. It does get a little loud in the restaurant, but it is off set by the BYO feature......Looking forward to coming again.

Always one of our favorite BYOB's. Emelio and family serve great food at a fair price. Never disappoints-it can get very loud on Saturday nights prime time however. We go often.

The restaurant caters to the customer, as such customizes each dish based on the dietary needs of those that are dining. The restaurant offers gluten free options as well as some vegan and vegetarian options as well. The experience was very enjoyable and I highly recommend the restaurant.

Trattoria Mediterranea is a great family owned and operated restaurant! First of all, the menu choices are broad enough that you would want to try multiple dishes PLUS the Chef Specials are seasonally spot-on.
Service is excellent and with very pleasant and engaging staff. BYOB is also a great benefit not only for your wallet, but for those that have fine wines to bring along...

The restaurant automatically took the liberty of WRITING IN a 20% tip on the bill, even though we were a party of two. I have never had this happen before, and this aggressive intrusion on a discretionary aspect of the customer dining experience may hurt their business in the future. The meal was generally good, but this tacky practice on their part left a bad taste in the mouth upon exit.

It had been a few months since our last visit. The food and service were excellent as always. Visited a few days after Christmas so the noise level was a bit higher due to a number of large groups. Will return very soon.

As always, Trattoria Mediterranea exceeded expectations. We started with the mixed antipasto platter which always includes their homemade sausage - delicious! The pork chop was the best I ever had with a perfect sauce and sides. My husband's seafood medley was plentiful. We ordered a pasta to take home for the next night and it was fabulous.
