In town for business and came here with a co worker. Great atmosphere and ddrinks. Had the Chicken and Andouille Con Queso and WOW, it was wonderful. The service was great, and locals were friendly and talkative. Will definitely be back.

Ate here with a large group- not a problem for the staff. They handled it well. Kids and all. Good menu offerings - something for everyone. From what I can tell everything passed muster. Good eats! Reasonable prices. A nice find in Normal, IL.

Many choices for evening meal. Choices ranged from pastas to pizza to main courses to appetizers and desserts. Food was excellent, served at correct temperatures. Choices of alcoholic beverages and non alcoholic. Draft beer available. Tree in middle of restaurant.

Was at this restaurant for a rehearsal dinner and a Sunday Brunch. Both were very good and would recommend to other travelers. We could walk from the Hyatt which was another benefit.

I have visited this restaurant several times. It's always been good. But this last time I had the fish with risotto . It was outstanding. The best meal I have ever had there. I think it's one I would crave once in a while. There...More

There is an awkward little free lot behind Medici, where everyone always seems to be driving the wrong direction on the one way portions. There is any entrance to Medici, so that is convenient. You can also park on the... More
