We have been going here for years and the food has never really let us down. It's the slow and unresponsive service that really gives us pause. We had to ask the waitress two or three times to get refills of soda and extra condiments brought to the table. My wife was not impressed with her salad but I must... More

I know that this is a "sit-down" restaurant, a very good one as well. But we have just never gone here for the sit-down experience. My wife works later into the day and there are times when the most prudent thing to do is to bring home take-out. We have enjoyed Melo's pizzas for years, our favorite one being the... More

The food was decent, although I didn't expect the "small" serving of Minestrone to be teacup size. This is America, after all and as a European, I expected "small" to be large and "medium" to be huge. "My bad", as they say over here. While on the European theme, I am used to the cheese on my spaghetti bolognese to... More

My friends highly recommend this pizza place. It is quite good, it did not disappoint. It is a solid pizza place. The pizza is not greasy, no extra oil on top of the pizza.

We go here at least once a week because the food is so great and the service is good. The management could be more personable though and the bathrooms need to be cleaned up badly. During a recent visit I couldn't believe how dirty they were... So, I told the manager they were out of paper towels and the bathroom... More

Melo’s has a very extensive pizza and pasta menu. They also have a nice selection of appetizers, salads, soup, sandwiches, and chicken entrees. For the pizzas there is a choice of over 30 toppings. The pasta dishes all looked great. The pasta choices include classic regional specialties and Melo’s signature pastas. Our favorite, ravioli Portofino, came from the signature dishes.... More

I am really picky about my pizza and pasta, coming from a family with an Italian grandmother who makes all of this homemade. Melo's definitely meets and exceeds my picky standards. I love their pizza AND their pasta. I've never had a bad meal here.

Very tasty Italian food, from the bolognese to the Alfredo sauce combined with pasta el dente or any of the various ravioli, have yet to be nothing but impressed. Not too loud inside simple clean decor but the food is what delivers time and again dine in or take out!
