Our party recently met here for dinner and even though we had a reservation, it didn't seem that we were expected. But we got a table and were promptly served water and approached by waiter to order drinks. Even though they were busy, our food...More

Great views and decor. Facing Elephant head peak and Santa Rita mountains. Italian restaurant with old world charm. We visit this restaurant at least four times a winter season and always enjoy the experience.

Melio's is the best Italian food sout of Tucson and better than most in Tucson. The portions are modest but the quality and service are superb. We eat there 5 or 6 times a year and are never disapointed. The reviewer from April 2014 who...More
