Came to Salina to attend a funeral. Saw Martinelli's advertised on-line when I made my hotel reservations. Martinelli's was also listed in the hotel's "things to know" in-room notebook. I hadn't had good Italian food for a while, so decided to try it out. Was I ever glad I did! The atmosphere was quite pleasant. The staff was very friendly.... More

These kind folks were awesome enough to take our delivery order 15 minutes before their closing time. We had just gotten to our hotel room and were starving. We ordered stuffed mushrooms, and 2 large pizzas. If you have the chance get a large pizza with pesto sauce, olives, mushrooms, and spinach. Its all fresh food and its..just try it... More

Lunch with my sister. Lots of choices for vegetarian and a non-vegetarian. Great service, great value. Right in the center of the local action, across from Stiefel Theater.

So back at Martinelli's on a Tuesday evening and dined at the bar as usual. Tonight I started with the 1/4 Spinach Salad. It's amazing! Red grapes, fresh Spinach, blue cheese, candied walnuts, crisp red apple and a tangy dressing make it a great starter. I went for the STL style pizza. I made my own with mushrooms, green peppers...

A converted commercial storefront on the main drag of Salina offering really good Italian cuisine (and being from St. Louis and eating on the Hill that means something). Service was casual, friendly and attentive. Portions can be quite sizeable.

Great food, good service in a neat downtown area of Salina. Food is served family style, which means people share big platters of food. Our family of 4 shared "1/2" plate of a salad, the shrimp and scallop linguine, and dessert. All fabulous food. We will be back!

Traveling through Kansas and we're happy to find this place. Very good all-around. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and food was really good. Children's meals with good portion and inexpensive. We enjoyed the pizza and tried the "pink sauce" - a mixture of red and fettuccini

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.
