Great choice in Salina!

Was in town for business meeting and was craving Italian. Pulled up Trip advisor and saw them listed as #4 in Salina... Wrong! Should be #1. First I dined on a busy Friday night and since it was just myself, they did offer me a table, but I sat at the bar. Great choice! Brandon the barkeep took... read more

We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant! We had eaten here once before on a trip to Salina, so we were glad to be able to return. If this restaurant were in our hometown, we would be weekly patrons. The food was excellent, the portions were more than generous, the service, especially by Amanda, was outstanding, and the...

I love finding locally owned restaurants when traveling. The staff is amazing for a small town. They don't give you a chance to want for anything. If you get Scott for your server, you'll see what I mean. The chopped salad is one of their specialties and it was very good. The portions are very generous.

to the reviews below. Food is good, portions are HUGE, prices are reasonable, and the service was fine. Very very good tiramisu. My wife and I were very pleased with our salad, ravioli, and lasagna. You should definitely consider the half or even quarter portions. Will be a regular stop on our travels thru Kansas.

This was my first time at this local restaurant and it won't be my last. All the dishes we tried were delightful. All were ordered with the intent of sharing. we had plenty of leftovers. Outstanding service was beyond what you might expect and the prices were very reasonable. An outstanding experience.

Whether you are going to a show at the Steiffel Theater across the street or just want a great Italian meal, Martinelli's is the place to eat in Salina. There is an extensive menu which is very accommodating. In the entrees there is a choice of 1/4, 1/2 or full serving. I always get the 1/4 which comes with more... More

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
