This place has one of the best calamari and marina sauce that I've ever had! Nice crunchy batter and tender squid with a tough of lemon. The breading is crunchy yet still soft.

I like to go there for lunch. I try to do during the week so it's less crowded and the waitresses and waiters can attend to you more. Also less noisy.

Food is great, classic. I enjoy big portion salads. They also have a great wine

You don't expect reasonably priced, good Italian on Sunset in this part of town. But Cafe med is both of those things! It's yummy and inexpensive and the calamari rocks.

These people complaining about the 20% service charge obviously don't tip that much; 20% is pretty standard here in LA. The reason why they charge is probably because most Italians stiff the wait staff. If you were reasonable tippers,

Cafe Med is on a busy corner location along Sunset Plaza. You'll find loads of parking just behind restaurant, which is definitely a plus in this area. Choose a seat on the patio if possible; you won't be disappointed with the people watching. (One caveat: there was a VERY close traffic call in the intersection and we realized, while smelling the burned tire rubber, that in the event of an actual accident, the patio wouldn't be protected from flying debris or sliding vehicles. Such is the case with all outdoor cafes; this one is just on an extremely busy street.)

The menu was filled with interesting choices, from salads to sandwiches to pizza to pasta to meat/chicken/seafood entrees. (With prices ranging from $10 to $30, there's something for every budget.) We selected the fried calamari appetizer to share, followed by separate entrees of grilled prawns and grilled salmon. As we waited, we enjoyed biscuit-like bread with a wonderfully fruity olive oil and a lovely dry riesling.

The tender, crispy calamari was served with an excellent light red, almost pink, marinara that accented rather than overpowered. The prawns were huge, split like lobsters, and served on a bed of crunchy greens. The salmon was very simply served with a tasty side of fresh corn and tomatoes. In all dishes, the quality of the ingredients spoke for themselves.

We finished with a light and airy tiramisu that more than fulfilled its "pick me up" translation. Delicious!

Total tab for everything was a very reasonable $80. The value received was well worth the price.

The location's ambiance and excellent service enhanced one of the best dining experiences during our week in LA. We plan to return to Cafe Med on our next visit.

My favorite italian restaurant! I love the cheese ravioli. They are simple but taste like pillows of heaven. The pasta is fresh and the cheese is perfect- you can taste the authenticity! Plus, it's totally inexpensive- the raviolis are about $10.

We love to go to Cafe Med on the weekends, when we are too lazy to make lunch for ourselves. The patio is nice...and they accomodate you well when it is too hot/cold/sunny by bringing the umbrella around or by turning on the heatlamp.

I found the food lacked flavor and zest. Each dish we received lacked the simple flavor needed to make it good. Even the dessert - wasn't at the level I expect from an Italian restaurant charging those prices. Sorry.
