The only place to get a cheese and charcuterie board in Lilongwe. Food is amazing although the pasta portions can be a little small! The steaks are also really good here as are the staff who are incredibly friendly and attentive.

Mediterraneo is the restaurant that we frequent most regularly. The restaurant setting (inside/garden) is very nice, whether dining with family, friends or with work colleagues. Good pizzas and pastas, and the specials are very nice.

I came back to Mediterraneo with my sister and we were both very impressed with the quality of the food. Their cannelloni is a treat. The house wine is also nice and filled up to the brim. Being the Thursday night before a long weekend,...More

Lilongwe is not well-endowed with great food venues. This is one of the best places I know for above average dishes that are genuinely good, genuinely Italian. But the waiters are slow, tip-craving and inefficient. Too bad. It takes FOREVER to get your food, assuming...More

Had a lovely meal at Mediterraneo last week. A cosy setting (it's also nice in the day when you can sit in the garden) and very good Italian food considering we are a long way from Italy! Tiramisu was disappointing but the mains we had...More

It was my first time there and i was looking forward to it. Found the food good and they give ample portions. However found the service a bit biased towards the foreigners. Being locals we were more or less ignored for 30 minutes before they...More

I really, really like Mediterraneo! Like many Lilongwe restaurants it is located in a residential neighborhood and might seem too off the beaten track to visit - but Lilongwe is a compact town and if staying in Capital City, i.e. the new part of town...More
