Absolutely love the grilled chicken salad. It is favorable and always has the right mix of greens to add ons. Eat here very often and would classify Melini's as one of the best places in town to eat. Can't go wrong here!

We visited this restaurant my husband and the food was ok but way too expensive for what it is. I got just a plate of spaghetti and it was $12. Just plain with a marinara sauce.

I had the 4 cheese ravioli, it was delicious!!! I would recommend this place to anyone. It's small and has a very family oriented feel. The restaurant is very clean and the Italian food seems very authentic. Great place to eat in mt sterling.

Great food, friendly staff. Not the everyday Italian run of the mill food. Parking limited but not a problem. All food prepared from scratch. A cut above other Italian food.

We saw an employee bringing in (in a black garbage bag to hide the packages) Stoffers Frozen meals to be served. When I pay these prices, I don't expect a frozen TV dinner. I asked to speak to the manager, but the... More

Ate here a couple of weeks ago with a friend for lunch. Small restaurant in a strip center so not the most inviting location but ok. We have eaten here a couple of times in the last month. The hostess seems to normally have a child so a little unusual I guess. Restaurant is clean. Restrooms good. The calzones are... More

I usually love the salads because they use spinach but this time it was large pieces of lettuce:( some were even dark brown:( just disappointed :( Plus the waiter had zero personality. Poor service:(

Honey just loves those sauces that clog your heart...so finding the Carbonara with Pancetta and Veal was a dream come true. He finished his and half of mine with chicken. Waitress was attentive.
