We stopped in here unexpectedly on our way home from Nogales around 6:30 on a Friday night. The restaurant we were going to stop at in Tubac was no longer in existence. My husband said someone had told him they liked this restaurant so we decided to stop. It does not look very promising from the road, but it was... More

We had heard good things about Melio's, and today had the pleasure of having a delicious Roman-style pizza for lunch at this unique restaurant. The thin-crust pizzas are scrumptious. I shared a 4 seasons vegetarian pizza with my friend; our husbands shared a meaty one. Everyone was happy! Melio's is NOT a fast-food restaurant, so be patient while your meal... More

This is my parents' favorite restaurant while they winter in Arizona. They had only been in the area for 2 days this year and we made a beeline to Melios! When we arrived, we were greeted by name and with big hugs. They made us feel like they were truly glad that we were there. The atmosphere is charming and... More

Four of us waited a long time to give our drink order, then it was wrong. We waited again to order our entree and never received an a la carte salad. We had to ask for bread, which seemed like sliced store bought sourdough. Cold and not good. Then we ask for shredded parmesan cheese and a shaker with grated... More

This was my 4th visit to the area, but first time I was able to find it open. It was worth the wait, so please enjoy some creative pizza made with excellent ingredients.

We arrived right on schedule for our dinner reservation. It took a few minutes for our table to be ready. It appeared they were unexpectedly busy on a Fri night. We waited a tad too long once we were seated to order our meal but we were on our Fri night date so we remained patient....Once we were finally able... More

We visit Melio's occasionally because we want to like it, but we're always disappointed. Although the food is average, everything is a'la carte, so no veggies or salad with any of the dishes we ordered. Our server was okay, but the owner's wife ignored us, even when she was removing dishes from our table or when we needed some assistance.

We went with friends for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised. Excellent food, very friendly waitress. A very friendly atmosphere. Pasta was great, we all had the watermelon salad and it was out of this world. Homemade ice cream for dessert and it was wonderful!

We stopped in for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and made several suggestions for lunch. Had salad and a chicken dish with peppers and red sauce it was awesome. We are going to try to make it back for dinner as their dinner menu was very reasonably priced and looked very good

This will be the fourth year I have taken my group of 20 or so friends from all over the country that will be returning for another great dinner. We love the food, the ambience, and Melinda and Elio.
