With the Covid virus you must order and pick up your food, it can take a little time to get through to place your order because they are popular. I ordered two different kinds of pizza that were made to perfection, lasagna that was so...flavorful, moist but not falling apart, antipasto salad with the best dressing, and garlic bread. Overall the food was perfect, the staff are pleasant, and I picked up the order 45 minutes after placing it, everything was ready and hot.More

Best homemade pasta in Cortland. The red sauce is delicious and seasoned just right. Portions are generous and will provide lunch the next day.

Back in the day...when Cortland was an Italian Community, there was Melodyland. And it still remains today. The place is very retro decor. Everyone is friendly...Italian words are flung around as patrons enter and exit. There is a lot of kissing and hugging-so very clear...that everyone is "family". General age is over 60...but there was one young couple in their 20's the night we visited. We had ravioli and lasagna on a recent Wednesday night. Both were good, and contain the typical Cortland Southern Italian Sauce. Bread was delicious. Cash only...keep that in mind!!More

We have been here 3 times in the past. Not fancy, no credit cards but real Italian food. Homemade pasta great sauce and meatballs. Always plenty to eat. The only drawback is parking.

Do not, I repeat, do not miss the homemade pasta and meatballs. Pasta and meatballs like grandma used to make! Staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable.

Good restaurant. Good service, reasonable prices. The salads are good and the homemade pasta is absolutely delicious. The pizzas are ok, not as good as the entrees, but I would suggest the garlic pizza if you want to try one.
