Italian people are Mediterranean. I'm not sure what the regional term for Portuguese people is. Iberian, maybe. Hispanic is generally used for people in the Spanish-influenced parts of the Americas.

The Mediterranean sea does not touch Portugal but it is considered mediterrean especially due to its influence on gastronomy and climate

This. They could be considered "Latin" in the European sense, just as the French are considered "Latin" when compared to the British, who are generally thought of as a "Saxon" Northern European culture. In the United States? "Latin" or "Latino" usually refers exclusively to Spanish or Portuguese-speaking people from the Americas. Europeans get put into another category, and would probably considered white these days, though they wouldn't have been considered white a century ago.
