What a surprise to find this cute Italian restaurant in Salina. Portion sizes are huge! I ordered 1/4 size order of spaghetti and meatballs and couldn't finish it. The meatball was the size of a baseball and super delicious. I'll be back the next time I'm in town on business.

The food was very good, and the portions were large. We arrived early afternoon for a late lunch, so the staff seemed to be winding down. This place is not fancy, but made for a nice stop while traveling.

This was an unexpected find. While driving across Kansas we encountered a storm so pulled into Salina to eat and wait out the storm. Food was good and very plentiful. Service was kind and efficient despite being very busy.

Martinelli's is a nice place, clean and well run. The food was good - we had Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Alfredo and Chicken Carbonara. Everyone was satisfied. But I have to... More

Only get by once or twice a year but always good. Reasonable prices, great menu, wine list, and never have to worry about a bad choice. Service is quick and attentive. It can get pretty busy, reservations advised.

Tried their special and their tilapia alfredo; both good. Will eat here again when passing thru. Very reasonable cost.
