It was really good but

From the reviews I expected more. The pasta fussilli contadina was perfectly cooked with very fresh pesto. If you like crunchy crust pizza you'll like their pizza, toppings were good but nothing I would rave about, kinda surprised it's #1 on trip advisor but it was good just not knock my socks... read more

Was looking for a casual spot to have a creative sandwich for lunch and read the menu on-line. The service was perfect. We had the chicken-pancetta and meatball sandwiches. Both were great but the chicken-pancetta was the winner! Very creative blend of meats, cheese and onion on great bread that wasn’t too thick. Would definitely go here again to try... More

Melo's in Brentwood and Pleasant Hill serve the best Pizza and Pasta. We go there at least twice a month.. I like the Linguine Alla Pescatora and the number 4 pizza.

If you hunger for excellent flavor, texture and service, when it comes to Italian food this is the place. We have enjoyed food here for years, dine-in or take-out. The hand-thrown pizza dough is excellent, and they offer the extra thin napolitain crust as well. Service is consistently excellent. Ingredients are fresh and flavorful. You can't go wrong at Melo's.

Melo's is a Pleasant Hill institution. It's been around for years serving great pizza, pasta and wine. The Mediterranean pizza is delicious.

Melo's has been around forever. I was interested to note that in addition to the Pleasant Hill location, there are Melo's in Brentwood & Livermore as well. My family formerly visited Melo's quite regularly, but we hadn't been there in a number of years. Our meals this visit were very good, but not outstanding which is probably the reason that... More

We have been going to Melo's for 10 years now as a family, my husband even longer than that. It's very consistent, well executed old school Italian. Chicken parmesan, chicken marsala, Eggplant parmesan, lasagna, every types of pasta, etc. My kids really like the pizza - not thin, not thick crust but fluffy and very slightly chewy. After 6:15 there... More

I love pizza, and I am picky about what I will call a favorite. This is definitely. Their pizza crust is so good. Not just the crust, the whole pizza, but I really do love the crust. Their pasta is great as well, and I almost always get a salad with my pizza.
