Seven of us had a spectacular Thursday night dinner. It was full and noisy with live music and dancing due to a wedding party. That made it more fun but hard to talk! Specials included Lasagne with home made pasta, and a seafood with red sauce with home made pasta. Seafood filled with clams, muscles, calamari and shrimp. Both were... More

I had the calzone and was told it didn't come with marinara so I asked for it on the side. Didn't happen. Was supposed to contain mushrooms, prosciutto, and cheese. No prosciutto. Waitress didn't do anything about this either. Also, my husbands portion of pasta was of appetizer size. Not returning

This restaurant is tucked away in a set of retail buildings to the north of the shopping village of Tubac,but we still expected it to be busier than it was when we dined on a Thursday evening. We planned our dinner so that we could see the sun setting on the mountains, but it was not that sunny, and I... More

This little place is behind a gas station and not in the heart of Tubac but this shouldn't stop you from going if you are in the mood for Italian food. The food was fine and we had a good time. The restaurant itself is somewhat eclectic, and we found our server to be kind but way over worked. It's... More

Second time in a couple of years that I stopped and ate here while visiting relatives in Arizona. Both times were very good. Melio's is off the highway and almost hidden behind a gas station/general store, (we actually found it the first time while stopping at the store). Good Italian food, reasonable prices and good service with great views. I... More

I have traveled around the U.S a lot and have never come across a better authentic Italian meal! Besides the incredible food (no matter what you order), the service and the waitstaff are always kind, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The view is out of this world, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. If you ever find yourself... More

I have been going to Melio's Trattoria for many years and it has never disapointed. Wonderful Italian food (yes I have been to Italy) and the home made deserts are excellent. The pasta is consistently great and the salads - especially in the summer growing season - are fresh and amazing. The service is mediocre but respectable.

for the most part the Italian food is well prepared (by an Italian) using good ingredients. We've eaten there several times and with only one exception (the lasagne) we have had excellent meals. Prices are reasonable and the staff are most friendly and quite knowledgeable about the menu items. Tubac is a small, artsy village with a limited restaurant offering... More
