The service, food and atmosphere was all gold star worthy! I can't wait until our next visit! The menu offers different portion sizes of their traditional style Italian dishes. Everything is so good that you will want to pass it around the table! Next time we go we are taking a larger group so we can try even more! The... More

We had the wedding rehearsal dinner here at the restaurant. Even though the staff didn't have to, they let us have the whole room in the front for our event. Other customers were seated elsewhere in the restaurant. The food was delicious!

Walk through the doors and it feels like you're in an Italian Bistro complete with red and white checkered table cloths! This is my daughter's favorite place to celebrate her birthday so since Tuesday was her birthday, Martinelli's was the place we had to go. I ordered the homemade cheese ravioli with marinara and a side of their homemade meatballs,... More

If your in salina and want Italian this the place to go, the booth they put us in was really to small for four people when the food, bread board, water and wine glasses are on the table, but the food was good for the Midwest. I have had better Italian food, and do not care to be seated by... More

We always visit this restaurant when we're in town, and it is consistently great. I love the Martinelli's Pasta. My wife gets the Tilapia (crispy) with linguine, and my son always gets the Vodka Shrimp and Shells. Always the same, always great. Large portions, the quarter size is enough for one person.

When we attend performances at the Stiefel Theater in Salina, we enjoy eating at Martinelli's. We have tried several dishes, but our favorite is their cobb salad. Often when we are in town staying over with friends, we will pick one up and enjoy it together at their house. One salad will feed all four adults with leftovers! The staff... More

Took some business associates to lunch. They were from out of town and wanted 'local flavor'. They were ecstatic about this place. They raved all afternoon about the staff and the food. They were pleasantly surprised on the quantity and quality of the food. Needless to say, if you want to impress out of town visitors, this is the 'go-to'... More

My wife have eaten at Martinelli's for several years whenever we're driving I-70 through Kansas. It's the best all around restaurant in Salina. The staff are superb, very knowledgeable and very attentive.
