Its popular with the locals, as price is good. Teenagers and youngsters come here often, as do groups of young professionals.

Mediterranea is a cozy restaurant that offers friendly and attentive service. They offer both Italian and Middle Eastern cuisine. If you're looking for quick slice, you can get it. They also offer inside dinning, but keep it to parties of five or less. The dinning space is small. I personally like their tomato and basil slice, which they sometimes have... More

Stopped in for a Gyro - horrible. Ordered without lettuce and it came loaded with lettuce. The lamb was reheated from the fridge and cut up -- it was hard to chew. At 12:30 on a Friday there were 3 customers - total.

Good middle-eastern. Skip the Italian menu. Don't go on weekends, it's overrun with teenagers there for the apple tobacco hookahs (unless that's what you're looking for). BEST TABOULEH in New Haven, possibly CT.
