Had lunch with my sister at Melos. it's an excellent Italian restaurant with good pasta, pizza and salads. We get a salad and pasta to share. Will also go there for take out. The children's spaghetti to go is just the perfect size for one person and reasonable too.

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 off good.

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
