Service was great! Nice atmosphere. They bring our breadsticks and marinara sauce and they were delicious! I had the calzone. It was huge portion size and delicious as well. Service was VERY slow though in getting our food. It was a weeknight and they didn't seem that busy.

We were in Morehead for our Granddaughters High School Graduation and wanted to take her out to an early dinner afterward, we saw the TripAdvisor reviews for Melini's Cucina and how close it was to the Morehead Athletic Center where the Graduation was held and decided to eat there. Being from New Jersey we have no shortage of good Italian... More

I've been here several times over the last couple of years. This week I was again very happy with the quality of the food, the chef also was also able to accommodate a small change in the ingredients in my dish - it was delicious. Great place to eat and socialize.

Being out of town, we were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant near Morehead University. Lots of cars in the lot, so we decided to stop. We were at an evening Morehead BB tournament and although it was close to closing time, staff was positive, upbeat and served us with a smile. Great food!

I've been here several times. The food is NEVER disappointing. Unfortunately this place can be under staffed at times so you will wait a good bit for your food especially if they're busy! But, it's always worth the wait especially if you like Italian food as much as I do. The wait staff are always friendly too!

If u need an Italian sit down meal, you can't go wrong with Melini's Cucina. Always good for lunch or dinner with several reasonably priced options. Taste is always primo!

Service set up lacking. Had a large group which we waited a long time for a table , only ending up with three separate tables. At the end of meal instead of recieving a detailed bill you go to counter and tell what you had . Problem with that is if large meal you have no idea of over charging.... More

If you visit Melini's you must try their chicken alfredo! Super creamy and delicious! Another favorite is their giant calzones and pizza!

We have dined at Melini Cucina several times over the past few years. The food is consistently good and is served in a low key and comfortable atmosphere. Our latest visit certainly met our expectations. We had salmon Caesar salad and veal piccata. Both entrees were quite tasty. Portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. Our server, Johnny,... More
