I have often traveled from Colorado to see family in Ohio and spent more days than I care to remember on I-70. I have always focused on the completing the long drive (20 hours) as quickly as possible and never had the desire to get off the interstate. I seldom eat fast food but nothing seemed worth losing time by... More

4 of us had the family style dinner. The portions were more than ample. Very good value. Thoroughly enjoyed the tilapia with linguine. Kelle, our server, was very helpful answering questions about the various dishes and bringing additional portions. When we pass through next time, we'll visit again.

Food was great. Service was fantastic. We were served by Kelli. She did a great job. The prices were very reasonable. We had an appetizer, shared an entree and desert. Order the 1/4 portions of most dishes. For many of the pasta dishes, the 1/4 portion can be shared by a couple.

This restaurant just buys prepared food and heats it. The chopped salad is good but I think nothing else is better than a high school cafeteria. The portions are HUGE and the price is small...but I guess you get what you pay for.

Everything was fantastic! The portions are done by the single, half, or whole. I got the half portion of the chicken marsala and ate off of that for the next day and a half! My server was amazing, very attentive, not afraid to look at you in the face when speaking to you, and full of suggestions. Looking forward to... More

We had supper with friends at Martinellis before a show at the Stiefel. We were seated promptly since we had reservations. Both the table service and the food was incredible, and was reasonably priced. I had the seafood Alfredo and house salad...delicious! Looking forward to a return visit.
