I saw on TripAdvisor that this Salina restaurant was highly rated, so I gave it a try. I'm glad I did. The interior is really nice and charming. Service was great as well as the food. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

The moment we entered, we were greeted warmly and seated. The staff was solicitous and the service prompt and courteous. Our food was delicious, so much so, we ordered dessert, quite out of the ordinary for my husband and me. Martinelli’s is a gem.

This might be my favorite Italian restaurant of anywhere. Great staff, restaurant feels like home. Portions are huge and unbelievable value with the quality of food they put out. I eat here every time I'm in town for longer than a few hours.

Excellent food selections, well-prepared and reasonably priced. Martinelli's is a local favorite, and it will not disappoint. The decor gives a bit of a retro feel, like it might have been back in the 50s.
