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

Been coming here for 40 years... We have been coming once a month or so since 1973. Great Pizza and pasta. Not cheep but the best. We always bring visitors from out of town here.

Very good pizza no matter your topping preference. The children's pizza is the size of most fast pizza places medium pizza. The garlic bread is great and pasta dishes are very filling. Take out orders are well packaged and the dine in atmosphere is excellent. Plenty of parking.

Tried for the first time today with the whole family and it was a terrific dinner! We were greeted warmly and seated almost immediately. Brandon was an outstanding waiter, providing just the right level of attentiveness and friendly throughout our meal. The complementary bread was a delicious start and it tasted like Acme bread which was even better with the... More

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.
