Bloody Mary's were not anything like they were hyped up to be, very stiff. Salad could have been crunchier, our entrees were wonderful, of course. I had the Spaghetti Marinara with the homemade meatball and my boyfriend had the Chicken Piccada. Wait staff was friendly

Cute restaurant, good food, great service! Tanner was our waiter and made out dinner even more enjoyable with his friendly and helpful attitude! It's so refreshing to meet such great servers who seem to enjoy what they're doing!

They are #1 on TripAdvisor for a reason! Impeccable service! Food was hot and fantastic. Warm bread with dipping oil was brought out right away. I had Caesar salad with shrimp and lots of shrimp! Hubby had stuffed manicotti. Sauce was excellent and everything was fresh and hot! Great value! Highly recommend!

My family and I stopped in to eat at Martinelli's on our way through Kansas. We choose this restaurant as it was the number one place to eat in Salina here on Trip Advisor.

Our visit was around 2pm on Sunday and the place was hopping! We wanted quiet, and the greeter took us to a booth in the back that was perfect.

Just had a quick stop thru town as we came by I70. Family of 4 for lunch and under $30. That's insane! All homemade and tasted super. Kids meals start at $2.45! The service was spot on and food came out fast and hot. Worth the 3 min detour off the freeway.

We are on a long road trip for about 30 days, tent camping. We like to have a good meal with local fare when we eat dinner. We were surprised that it was crowded during the week. The food was good and we were glad we stopped to eat here.

We visited this restaurant when we first moved to town after our realtor spoke highly of it. There was no wait and the staff was pleasant but the food was not good and everything was overpriced.. We have never been back there, but we frequently visit the owners other restaurant next door which is delicious.

Excellent food! Great wait staff as well. The dessert, Tiramisu, was homemade and fantastic. Should have taken a picture.
