Mediterranean not Mediocre Food ... well to be precise we actually both ate Italian pasta dishes which were tasty and most reasonably priced

Lovely food! Good quality ingredients! I love Italy and this is as close to Italy for pizza as you get! Forget Domino's! Theses pizzas are the real deal! Eating in is a little impersonal as it's more a warehouse than restaurant! But it has a good shop for ingredients, although prices are a little high !

Love the variety and foods that I miss from living in Europe. Pizzas are good too! I always spend too much here.

Reliably good and very popular. I had Italian Bean Soup once a week for a month and loved it every time.

The Mediterranean Food Warehouse is a bit of a misnomer since it is now basically a pizza restaurant. It used to be part of a big warehouse full of pastas, pickles, flours and much more but that area is now the 'i' Information Centre. The pizzas are divine and you can even buy a gluten-free one! Service is always professional.... More

I called in for lunch with my wife and two overseas visitors on the recommendation of a friend and was very pleased we did. The quality and range of food were both very good. Staff were helpful and polite and the service was quick even though the cafe/restaurant was almost full. The Mediterranean Food Warehouse is in a good location... More

Ordered two pizzas a takeaway for dinner as we wanted something more authentic than Dominoes or Pizza Hut. At $15 per medium pizza, you would expect plenty of toppings, however we were quite disappointed with the lack of toppings and overall blandness. The service was good, and I cannot comment on their pasta or dessert dishes, but i sincerely hope... More

Yummy roast vege salad, divine white chocolate cheesecake and perfectly made trim flat white. Not cheap but worth it for a treat. The service was good, didn't have to wait long for the food and I was able to do some specialty grocery shopping at the same time.

Nice atmosphere, attractive food, all Italian, fresh ingredients. Service was prompt even though the restaurant was quite busy. Facilities are clean and handy. There is a small 'shop' area where you can buy authentic Italian products such as cheeses, flours, jars of pickles and so on. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant is adjacent to the Coastlands shopping area.
