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

Enjoyed an excellent gorgonzola pizza here one with friends seated in the lush gardens surrounding this restaurant. The service was impeccable, the white wines cool and the atmosphere inspiring. Would come here any time again.

So much potential, but I'm afraid to say that it is my least favorite restaurant in Lilongwe despite trying it so many times. A lot of love has been put into the decor with custom made veranda windows and a cozy inside area and bar....More

I went more than once, for lunch, coffee and dinner. I enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. The garden is very green and the staff friendly ad helpful. The food is really Italian and some of the desserts are a real treat. Coffee...More
