Often our must try in a new restaurant. It was fabulous. The batter was light and the Calamari was fresh and not chewy at all. Very nice. Another... More

We went to Mediterra for a fixed menu 50th birthday celebration for my brother-in-law. The ambiance of this restaurant in Princeton is beyond belief. The restaurant is busy, but you hardly notice with the layout. The food is of the highest quality. We had a party of 12 and they served several of the courses family style for us. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague for a business dinner and it was a fantastic choice right from the start. The exterior was delightfully decorated for the holidays and the inside was warm and inviting. They have an extensive wine selection but limited menu. The chickpea falafel was dense and spicy and I enjoyed it immensely. I chose a... More

We were in town for Thanksgiving with my family and ate at Mediterra the night before with my sister and her husband. Busy place but were seated in a quiet corner where conversation was possible. The food and service were excellent, especially the server who helped with dinner selections and the bill. The pasta which we all ordered, papardelle with... More

We ate: falafel and octopus for starters, then porcini papardelli and farm chicken for mains. All was beautifully cooked, with a special mention for the pasta which was just delicious. Accompanied by a glass of Italian white as an apero the a bottle of Minervois, this dinner was the best yet in Princeton. The service was was attentive and friendly,... More

Went for dinner on Saturday - place is buzzing - very noisy. Tables are small and VERY close together. For a restaurant at this price range you would expect more attention to details like these. Service is good, "too attentive" at times... The food was tasty - Paella is very good and had a nice selection of sea food. I... More

The food is good, the service is regular. The wine list is reasonable. Worth going another time and bring friends.
