Need an Event Catered?

I had Martinelli's cater an event for us and there was more than enough food for everyone. They even boxed up the leftovers in containers, so everyone was able to take home a box. The cannolis and chopped salad were awesome!

Great service. Great menu. Great food. An example of great service was after hubby ordered a Scotch, and inquired about a lesser known brand, the bartender (or maybe the manager?) came to our table to discuss the Scotch options. We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizers--stuffed with Italian Sausage and covered with mozzarella, served with marinara for dipping. I could have... More

The food here is fantastic and the atmosphere is great. Service is awesome and always goes over the top to make guests feel welcome. I really have a hard time not going here when I'm in Salina.

We were with a business group and ordered family style with multiple choices of dishes per course. The food kept coming and it was all really delicious.

The checkered tablecloths and music will put you in the mood for a delicious Italian meal, and that's what you will get! Maertinelli's Little Italy was a wonderful, romantic restaurant to visit on our trip across Kansas. Get off the interstate and head south downtown. You will be glad you did. I would echo all the reviewers who suggested to... More

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.

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
