I love this little restaurant. While huddle in the midst of a strip mall, once you walk inside, you find yourself in a different time and place. Unlike many restaurants today, the background music is quiet and mood-setting. The food is very good, priced well and presented by an excellent staff.

My friend and I chose Melo's because we wanted a light dinner before going to the theater. I love Melo's because they offer delicious and varied small plates to suite all palates and they allow you to share entrees and salads.

It just wasn?t authentic Italian food. Starting from the dull bread to the frozen calamari rings to the off putting pasta sauce flavors. I wanted to like it as the reviews on Yelp were good but they may have been reviewed by people who are not foodies and know the real deal.

This restaurant advertises as Italian, but it is a hybrid Americano-diner pretending to be Italian. We are European and this is not what Italian food is like! Not only we have travelled to Italy, but we cook along with out Italian friends when they visit us in our home. If we were to take any Italians to this restaurant they would be horrified. For Americanized so-called Italian, the lunch portions are poor. The sandwich was not served with any sides. The gyros beef-lamb meet were pre frozen stips (the ones that come in a box) and you preheat on the grill. I know because our local church in Durham uses exactly the same gyro strips in the gyro during the annual fundraising festival. The calamari was also frozen type, and looked like popcorn shrimp strips. It was not the round ring pieces served in the local Greek restaurants. This calamari is out of a box, fried and served for Italian calamari. Really sad! The service was poor. The server did not ask at all how the food was like and when I mentioned to him at the end that they had not checked with us about the quality of the food, he shrank his shoulders. Very disappointed and dissatisfied with this restaurant. It was a waste of time and money. EM
