Ok. I'll start by saying, the pizza was good. Large and loaded with meat. Tasty and a great pizza. I was shocked at the cost though. 2 pizzas including tip cost $70. I know California is expensive, but I felt this was a bit over priced. All in all though. It was tasty and 2 large pizzas.

Ate here with a large group and the food was very good. The pizza was very fresh and hot and the salad (family size) was very good. It fed 5 adults easily. The house dressing, which is a tomato basil style dressing is amazing. This is a must try if you are looking for a casual meal and great food.... More

We got there early on a Friday evening. The place was getting busy but the service was fast, friendly and efficient. I had a very good linguini pescatore and my wife had a huge veggie supreme pizza (she took half of it home). I shared a pitcher of tasty IPA with my friend.

a favorite pizza place for many years in pleasant hill; delicious pizza and very good pasta. kids can watch the pizza being made. we like that you can order a 1/2 pitcher of beer, and small or large salads also.

It's about time that I wrote a review, as I frequent this establishment for take out on a regular basis. I do not care for their food when it's lunchtime/day time. They always seem to be discombobulated and unorganized....and it's not that busy to justify this. So, I like them for dinner, but still a bit inconsistent. They do have... More

We began going to this restaurant for take out pizza when it was down the street and a little hole in the wall. We lived in Martinez and my then toddler son and husband would go get the pizza to go. Well 28 years have seen us live out of the Bay Area but come back often to visit family... More

I've been going to Melo's in Pleasant Hill for over a decade. I learned very early on, that their pasta options are really special. In particular, we love the Fettuccine Con Pollo. At first you might think $12 is a lot for a pasta dish, but the serving is HUGE. In fact, the other night, two friends of mine ordered... More

Always good, always fresh. The crust is my favorite part, and I sure do love this pizza the next day cold too! The restaurant is very nice and wait staff very friendly. Just a great pizza joint!
