Great Restaurant in Salina

This restaurant is right in the downtown area of Salina. It serves Italian food which can either be ordered as individual dishes or family style. The prices are very reasonable and the food is great. Definitely worth eating at if you are in the Salina area.

My first visit here. The waitress was the best ever, hands down. She professionally quoted us the dinner specials with prices. She knew the menu and gave educated and professional opinion when asked. She explained how the food portions worked. The portions are huge. The food was homemade and delicious. We took home two togo boxes. Waitress recommended a delicious... More

Good food. Friendly service. Great value. Nice location across from historic theater. Fed family of four for under $30. Stopped by looking for something other than fast food. Giant meatball!

Everything about this place felt like stepping back in time. Service was great. Food was pretty good and we loved the décor. Worth stopping in. We'd come back and try the whole Italian dinner with salad, wine dinner & dessert. Menu looked fabulous.

Read many reviews out here on Trip Advisor so we thought we would give it a try. We are from St Louis which is sort of tough for the owners of this restaurant when it comes to my review. We have stupendously good Italian restaurants in our heavily Italian neighborhood The Hill. So we have high expectations. I was perusing... More

The restaurant is cute and the food is so so. We had fettuccine with Alfredo sauce, spaghetti and ravioli and it was all ok. Not the best you ever had but good enough. they had salt on the table so that helped a lot. The staff is really polite and they were quick. The portion is really big. I ordered... More

We stopped here at the end of our road trip after reading trip advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. We were promptly seated and our server was very helpful and answered all of our questions about the menu. She kept our drinks full and the bread coming. As we waited for our food, which didn't take long, we enjoyed... More

After a LONG day of travel, we made it to Martinelli's 30 minutes before closing. Our server, Scott was fabulous! The meal was great, the staff courteous, and the restaurant was clean. Great dining experience! Highly recommended!!!

I had the Martinelli Pasta (shells with mushrooms, chicken, and sauce) and was amazed. The seasoning tasted fresh out of the garden and the sauce was perfect. The homemade bread is equally good. I was a bit disappointed in the salad - it was listed on the menu as having kalamata olives (my favorite) and there were only 3 or... More
