My in laws live in Salina. We visit there about 4-6 times a year. We make sure at least one visit is to Martinelli's. Get there early this place is always packed. The chicken parmesan is amazing and the service is always wonderful too.

We try to go here everytime we are in the area. We love this place. Great food and service! We have tried several of the dishes and all were very good. Would recommend the chopped salad to start. Salad is large. It could be a meal by itself.

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.
