Mediterraneo

I knew nothing of this restaurant going in, except for the info I read on Yelp from mostly mediocre reviews. We were in California for a short vacation and my family chose Mediterraneo. I hate not choosing the places I eat. Leaving that decision in the hands of others usually leads to my disappointment. Luckily, on this occasion we walked away happy from our experience. 

Located in the affluent area of Westlake Village, it’s close to a golf course and part of a complex with a hotel and Stonehaus Winery. It’s a beautiful area and the restaurant itself is stunning — stone and dark wood give it a Mediterranean villa look. It overlooks a small pond/lake and has a decent sized patio with plenty of heaters between tables to warm chilly nights.

A light and refreshing summer salad of strawberry, burrata, and arugula started our meal. Although, it was oddly plated on a narrow cutting board, causing ingredients to tumble off. They get points for style but zero for functionality. The hamachi crudo that followed had a balanced amount of heat and acidity from the Calabrian peppers and yuzu.

Both the spaghettini con zucchini aglio olio and tagliatelle bolognese were excellent. The savory blend of meats in the latter dish made the bolognese shine.

Their desserts made for a decent ending to the meal, but lacked the refinement of the appetizers and entrees. The buttery crust and creamy chocolate filling of the chocolate pudding pie was plenty to share between my wife and kid, while the butterscotch pudding contained just enough salt to satisfy my palate. The peanuts on top were a nice touch, too.

Our server was ok, but devoid of the personable service to make the experience outstanding. Still, the restaurant was better than expected. Their French/Italian/Greek menu isn’t adventurous or cutting edge, but it’s executed at a high level. I knew the atmosphere would be nice, but the quality of food was a pleasant surprise.
