They have an awesome menu just not that many parking places. The food is great though! Rather large inside with backrooms for larger/ business groups!

I have been enticed by this restaurant's menu online on successive trips to Grayson. It seems very reasonable and even cheap for some of its menu items. I have been disappointed and have still gone back, because it's one of the few "fine" dining restaurants in the town. This time, I and my partner both got entrees with veal. They... More

We found this very authentic Italian restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The calzones were huge, very fresh, and tasty. But there was no wine as it was Sun. night. Can't have everything!

Our last visit was in June. Nothing has changed. They had a large party going on which wasn't really an issue other then they gave us one of the breads that they took in to the large group. Which they did not need because they had enough. I don't blame them we didn't want it either it was cold. Usually... More

We went to Melini Cucina for my husbands birthday dinner. Fortunately husband's salmon in vodka sauce was very good, I ordered the veal marsala, I got the toughest piece of beef I have ever eaten in a restaurant, the marsala "sauce" was some kind of watery broth with almost no flavor. We ordered off the dinner special menu, I thought... More

Recently visited Grayson Lake and stopped for dinner. Five of us had a really good meal, all ordering entrees and had a couple of drinks. Surprisingly the bill for 5 meals and drinks was only $64, what a great price! The breadsticks were fantastic!

I didn't expect this place to be as nice as it was. We had a flat tire and ended up waiting in Grayson while they fixed our tire. They recommended we eat at Melini Cucina while we waited. It was VERY good and affordable for lunch. There was a large lunch crowd so the locals must like it. But they... More

We have been here often. On one visit I had ordered lasagna. Which was very disappointing. The waitress asked his it was because I didn't eat very much. I told her it was not very good. She told me if I wanted good lasagna I should go to the pizza place down the road. You never tell a guest to... More
