First time visiting with my friend. Tables for 2 are tiny and they seated us across from the dirty dish area. We asked to move to a four top but they wouldn't let us even though the place was not that crowded. We both ordered pizzas. When they arrived, they were lukewarm. I requested the gluten free crust and it... More

First time checking out Ariano and we were all impressed and stuffed! Neat building, bar on first floor, seating on second floor with a really cool third floor area with a spiral staircase. The bartenders were attentive & friendly, food was excellent (bang bang shrimp app and three of us had pizza and one had the chicken dinner) and our... More

The upstairs is great for large groups. We had about 14. The food was great. I tried the salmon panini which sounds strange but tasted awesome. They also have vegetarian options.

The first time we dined at Ariano's, I knew we would be dining there again. Next time my husband and I completed our meal, I told my friend coming into to town that I found THE place for one of the best meals around. I was right! Her husband is a rib counnisoir and he said the ribs were the... More

The title to this review should give you some sort of clue as to where our standards are when it comes to Italian food. They're high, very high. We were in a rush and needed to get something quickly and so we popped into the first place we found, not even realizing that it was Italian food. Since we were... More

Ariano is by far the best restaurant in Media! Anthony's attention the smallest detail in designing the restaurant, the excellent menu and simply the best Italian around contributes to its incredibly enthusiastic fans. We always dine here during "dining under the stars" and love to have a romantic evening on nights during the winter. Great place for all occasions.

Ariano is a dining experience that should not be missed. The attention to detail in the design and to the food is unmatched. Much like its sister eatery Fellini's cafe the staff and food are exceptional. Chef Anthony continues to lead the pack when selecting where to dine in Media.

Ate here for lunch. They had a stand at the weekend's Media Fair where you could buy a small slice of pizza with caramilized onions that was so good we couldn't wait to try the restaurant. So disappointed. They left the front door open and there were flies. The walls leading to the upstairs restaurant were black with where hands... More

We took our son's family with 2 kids aged 5 and 2 and the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. They do have a children's menu, but ours just ate the bread and butter! We ordered a pizza for an appetizer for the table and the crust was a little burnt, but it tasted ok. Our dinners were great. This... More
