Very good!!

From the time we walked in, it was like being with family. The staff was very personable. The food was to my standards - I'm very picky about my Italian food - and would highly recommend. The price was reasonable. Decor was a little out dated, but it actually worked well for the restaurant.

We have been going here since 1968 and always get good food and friendly service. We love the 3 bean salad and Cornish hen.

Went with my friend John on a business trip. This was my second visit in two years. The first time I went I had baked scallops parmesan. The scallops were some of the largest I have ever had. Cooking it parmesan style? Wow. So good. This year I had the Red Snapper broiled with lemon butter sauce. I didn't think... More

I was with my girlfriend in this restaurant. The decoration is really typical The food is great. The portions are big and the price cheap. (14 dollars for a GOOD pizza...) nothing to say compared to Anthony's coal pizza which are not so good. I have nothing to say about that. I am from France and I wish to find... More

What makes this place famous is their Three Bean Salad. If you go for dinner, you get it for free with a quarter Cornish hen. I went for lunch so I bought a to go 1/2 pound for $2.50. Their food is home made, their meat sauce is fresh and the salad is presented really nicely. Jody is very friendly... More

This place has been around forever so maybe not fair of me to leave a review after a 1st visit but we tried several things and the only thing we actually liked was the bread. If I do return, I would try the pizza instead of other dinner entrees but my wife is Italian and was born and raised in... More

Nice friendly staff / servers. The interior is very outdated and tired looking. A padded table top ... and dusty bottles. Not sure what the front door concrete barrier is for ... makes for a very akward entrance !! Asked for eggplant parm with marinara sauce instead of meat sauce as menu states.... never seen a meat sauce on melenzanna... More
