Melo's has been at their Pleasant Hill location for at least 30 years. My daughter loved going there all her life. She still remembers how they used to give kids little balls of fresh raw dough to play with while waiting for pizza. So I took her and my 8 yr. old grandson there for lunch on New... read more

They have been in this location for years and consistently turn out a decent product. A popular take out pizzeria.

Melo's has been a Pleasant Hill establishment as long as we have been here -- 25 years. Their pizzas are fresh, cheesy, full of wonderful ingredients -- so many to choose from! And always served piping hot. All the locals go to Melo's, for anyone from out of town!

I have been going to Melos since I was a kid. It is delicious! They have the best minestrone soup around, their pizzas are authentic and delicious. Their house salad dressing is so yummy, I crave it! The pastas are also wonderful. You seriously cannot go wrong with any menu choice here!

That makes Alfredo sauce with nutmeg. As it should be. I highly recommend the fresh fettuccine and Alfredo sauce. With some crusty bread, it's a divine meal :)

i cannot believe that I have not reviewed this place yet. It's right down the damn street from me and my wife and i love it! We do not have it often because it is so good. I would weigh 350 lbs. if I became a regular customer. I request Melo's on my birthday and always following our opening day... More

The food is GREAT, the service is very good and the value is awesome. I have been here before, but it had been a couple of years, It's just as good as I remember. It is a wonderful family place. The kids can get dough from the cook to knead and play with. You and the kids can watch them... More

Melo's uses good quality incredients and it shows in the taste of the food. From the pizza to the pasta's, I haven't tried anything from Melo's that wasn't well done an delicious! A casual family restaurant that is always busy! Highly recommended for a great meal. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.
