Very nice lunch. Thank you Vinny (server) for putting up with us. Tilapia over linguini was out of this world. Pork loin was real tender also.

My husband and I are staying in Salina temporarily for his work and we were encouraged to try Martinelli's. We were warned that the portions were huge and it's true. We ordered half of house salad and entrees. The house salad, their specialty, is amazing. It's a meal in itself. I ordered half lasagna and my husband had the chicken... More

They serve LARGE servings. Most Importantly the quality of the food was fantastic. This restaurant is worth stopping for but call ahead and reserve. Early end of... More

Martinelli's has been in Salina for many years and the food and service continues to be very good. The wait staff are very friendly and the place has a nice atmosphere. It is worth a visit.

The service here is great. They also have great food but my favorite is the cannoli. I have not been anywhere else in Kansas that I can find cannoli this good.

Whenever we travel through Salina we try to take time to stop and eat here. Tucked away in downtown and sometimes a little difficult finding a good parking spot, it is still worth it to make a stop here. Great food and the people have always been friendly.

Well, I must say that our meal (and overall experience) completely shattered any expectation that we had. The food was incredible - from... More
