Great Steaks, chopped salad and pasta! This is a must stop while in Salina! The service was outstanding! Another item that is a must is desert. I highly recommend the chocolate lava cake topped with coffee gelato!

Neat environment, friendly and clean, but the cuisine is nothing to rave about. Want average? This is it.

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.
