Used to be one of my favorite places to go, but no longer. I think they must have switched chefs. Dont get me wrong. The staff is as friendly and efficient as ever. Restaurant is clean. Good bar selection. They even have a great little...More

If you are in the Salina area you have to try Martinelli's! The food is outstanding, portions are large, and the price was reasonable. It was almost humorous how often they refilled my glass. Don't think it ever got past half empty.

We saw the reviews as we approached Salina and stopped for dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful. We ordered the very reasonably priced "Light Family Dinner" for the four of us, which is "bottomless", and chose the amazing chopped salad, shells and shrimp with...More

Read wonderful reviews so out of all restaurants we picked this one. Over cooked! Lasagna had no cheese. Sauce was thick and yuck. Spaghetti wasn't tasty. Chopped salad I liked a lot, but how can you mess up spaghetti! Bread was yummy. Atmosphere was nice,...More
