“A gem!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

My wife, daughter (12) and I dined at Casa Mediterranea for the second time a few nights ago and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant is on 5th ave but nested in an alley, away from the noise and all the craziness. We went on a slow night and the owner took good care of us. We all had different kinds of pasta, and all the entrees were delicious (or awesome, according to my daughter). Casa Mediterranea is a very romantic restaurant that also caters to families. The ambiance is very relaxing and the service is great. If you're looking for an Italian restaurant in Playa don't think twice, Casa Mediterranea is a great restaurant! When you go, pay attention to the little napkin that you get at the end of your meal. It was a hit with our daughter since it "magically grows in front of your eyes".

“Got to really look for it”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

You really have to look for this ristorante because it is down an ally but once you find it you will return. This is a little open air place with about 10 tables. The food here is great and the service is a match. We ate here twice in our two week stay. Next trip to Playa we will be back.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I and my sons (ages 13 & 15) ended up going to Casa Mediterranea because we couldnt find another place we had been looking for. We should have kept looking!
Although my boys thought the food was good (they also love Kraft Mac & Cheese) I was very disappointed, especially when I saw the TA reveiws.
Everything we ordered was extremely oversalted and the pasta was overcooked.
The service was adequate at best.
I would equate Casa Mediterranea with the Olive Garden chain.
Maybe it was an off night, but from what was passed off as bruschetta to the pasta it was a very disappointing dinner.

“Romantic and delicious!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

I meant to write this review sooner - we were there just two weeks ago and it was fabulous from start to finish. Service was impeccable, food was outstanding (tuna carpaccio was the best!) and the atmosphere was so lovely and romantic! We can't wait to go back again on our next trip. Thank. You Maria and Mauricio.
