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

I usually get pizza take out and you can never go wrong with melo's Pizza. If you decide to dine in, the atmosphere is good and this restaurant is not too far from Pleasant Hill downtown.

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.

Melo's has been around for ages and their pizza is still the best in the area. It is our family's favorite reward destination. The pizza is always delicious. Their crust is just right. Excellent array of toppings. We like take out, but the restaurant is super family friendly. It's a little pricey, but worth it!

My wife and I have frequented Mello's for years. Although the pizza is outstanding it's much more than just a pizza joint. They have outstanding pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads. The service is friendly and fast especially considering they toss the dough for each individual pizza. The restaurant is always clean and with modern neon touch, far above a chain... More
