We arrived right on schedule for our dinner reservation. It took a few minutes for our table to be ready. It appeared they were unexpectedly busy on a Fri night. We waited a tad too long once we were seated to order our meal but we were on our Fri night date so we remained patient....Once we were finally able to place our order things moved along at a pleasant rate. We opted to do a shared, typical Italian style dinner with a carafe of their delicious Montepulciano. The caprese salad was tasty but could have used some basil for added flavoring. We followed that with the pasta course of penne ala whiskey. Be prepared for VERY al dente pasta! Loved the flavor of the salt pork. Our final course was the meat. We chose the saltimbocca alla romana. It was tender & flavorful with the prosciutto & sage. We opted for the pistachio cream pie for dessert. It was good but had the feeling of being from a boxed pistachio pudding. All in all a delightful dinner with a pleasant atmosphere. I even enjoyed an aperitif of Tuaca liqueur which I had never heard of! It was our first time to Melio's and I'm sure it won't be our last!
