After a long travel day we were happily surprised to eat here! It was highly recommended by hotel staff at holiday inn express. They even gave us a 10 percent off card. The servers were very attentive and went above and beyond. My daughter and I are gf and they were happy to accommodate. The gf shrimp pesto, was fabulous!... More

Martinelli's is as good of a small restaurant as you will find. This Italian food is incredible, and the service is outstanding. You won't find a salad as good as their chopped salad.... First class place.

We arrived after 7pm on a snowy Saturday night. Vinnie, our waiter, was great. Lots of good advice. We had a Caesar salad, chicken piccata, and Sicilian scallops and shrimp with pasta. Both were excellent. The service was great and the atmosphere was small town and just wonderful.

There is something for everyone on the extensive menu at Martinelli's. The marinara sauce is quite bland. I would definitely recommend the Chopped Salad which is a tasty combination of greens, chicken, bacon, blue cheese and avocado in a creamy dressing. You can order a variety of sizes. Service was great.

Never disappointed. My husband and i frequently go and sit at the bag. Always super friendly bar and server staff. And of course, yummy food and drinks.

Martinellis is cute and clean, with red-and-white checked tableclothes. Our server was great--friendly and competent. The food is not genuine Italian. My husband ordered spaghetti carbonara, and was surprised when our server asked "What kind of of pasta and sauce do you want?" We should have followed up but decided to go with the menu. What arrived were two huge... More

Visited Salina Kansas with family during the thanksgiving weekend. We decided to visit the Dwight Eisenhower Library and stay in Salina for the night. Since Trip Advisor rated Martinelli's number one, we choose this restaurant and boy were we happy we did. Our server, Angel, was wonderful, she somehow was able to anticipate our every need, and at the same... More

Huge portions so I usually split with someone. Food is typical Italian affair but fresh, fast and delicious. It's right down town so easy to get to and located with good parking easy to come by. Afterwards, stroll the streets of Salina to work off some of the calories and to see the local sites. No matter when I go,... More
