What a way to end the day! The food was delicious and the service fabulous. The small dining area is cozy and charming. Our server (Stella) was fantastic, knowledgeable and had good timing. The meal was over the top. A four of us had different meals with the same position results (great job Chefs). If you are in the Medina area or traveling between Buffalo and Rochester make Zambistro's a stop for dinner. Slightly pricey but worth it!

If I'm in Medina at lunch time, I always eat at the Shirt Factory Cafe. The staff is wonderfully friendly and the food options are great. I usually have a salad with grilled chicken and it's always tasty. The offering on my last visit was strawberry mandarin. They will always fill my thermos with hot water for tea and the selection of Numi teas is good. I'm not a coffee drinker, but my husband really enjoys the lattes and there are seasonal varieties (like chocolate peppermint). The cafe is in an old shirt factory (hence the name) and the seating area is an eclectic collection of vintage furniture and interesting decor, including historical photographs and artifacts.

I passed through here last week and had another very enjoyable cup of hazelnut coffee, which their friendly staff will prepare to your liking. Their pastry counter was largely empty, but they said they were in the process of re-stocking it within the hour. Food is prepared fresh and quick...I like this place.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to add this place to the many we have visited and evaluated. We were not disappointed. The décor and music were authentic and the waitresses were happy to speak either Spanish or English. The menu had a wide variety of standard and innovative dishes and there were specials posted. Everything was quite well done. (The only regret I had was failing to see the patio out front. Inside the dining area was rather dark and it was a spectacular sunny day. That patio would have been amazing! )

Rudy's is like going back to the 1950's. Although not quite 1950's prices, Rudy's is also very affordable. There is an extensive menu and specials on Wednesdays and Fridays. The portions are large and everything we ordered was delicious. The place was jumping on the night we visited so it appears to be very popular with the locals.
We made sure to save room for dessert and were very glad we did. Rudy's offers many varieties of homemade pies but we went with ice cream. The sundaes were incredibly large and a bargain at $3.99! I think you will enjoy the atmosphere and décor at Rudy's as well as the food.

At the end of a long business day, this is the right atmosphere to enjoy a local (or at least from the state of New York) beer. The staff was quick to make recommendations and even other guests at the bar chimed in. There is Irish music playing and with careful attention, you can make out that the interior is meant to look like a ship. Don't come here in a hurry. But nobody is ever in a hurry in Medina and that's a good thing.

It's alright. I can only speak for the pasta dishes. The pasta appears to be store bought and the alfredo is clearly from a jar. I expect more from a dine-out experience. I can boil pasta and slop on jarred sauce myself. Positives? The service was friendly and they have a decent kids menu. Place is clean and spacious. But in the end it all comes down to the food. Frozen and store bought food should never be served at an Italian restaurant. If you're looking for a simple place to take kids then this may be worth a try. Looking for fresh made from scratch Italian food? Go elsewhere.

Arrived in Medina just about dinner time and spotted this establishment. It wasn't fancy but looked like a reasonable place to eat.
The restaurant was acceptably clean and the wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Food was good, almost more than we could eat. In fact my wife did not finish hers.
Prices were reasonable and the quality of the food was better than many places. It appears to be a local establishment and not connected to any chain.
Many people opt for chain restaurants because they tend to be sure of what to expect but we like to try independent and even the so called mom and pop establishments. They often do not look flashy but usually have very good food at a reasonable price.

I had heard positive things about Avanti's from friends and finally tried it today. I had a chicken finger wrap with a bowl of soup for lunch and it was delicious! I took a slice of pizza home for supper but sampled it right away and it is VERY good. This place is very clean and modern and service is friendly and fast. Prices are reasonable. I only wish Avanti would move east and open a branch closer to or in Lockport. If that were to happen, I would go often. The Avanti in Medina has the benefit of being on Medina's historic Main Street, untouched by urban renawal. I love the old buildings, the old opera house, and the many small businesses including a bakery and a candy store.

This is a nice diner that overlooks the canal in Medina. Food is very abundant and of good quality and the prices are reasonable. The air conditioning is a little extreme.
