I was part of a large group from No. KY who was in Morehead for a competition and we ended up at the Melini Cucina on the recommendation of my grand daughters riding trainer. At 1st I was a little upset thinking we would be turned away because of the size of our group (20-30 guest) and was not at all impressed with a young hostess named Whitney. She obviously did not go through any customer service training prior to being hired. However, when a young man agreed to handle our group he totally turned our exprience around. He was the only server to attend to the entire group and didn t miss a beat with beverage orders and only one mistake on all the food orders. I have never experienced such amazing service for such a large group by ONE individual and one who did it with a smile. When I asked who the manager was because I wanted to give him a compliment he informed me he was the manager on duty that night. My hat off to Alberto and the outstanding customer service he provided our entire group. The visit I m writing my review was from December 1, 2012 and plan to be back in the area today 03-03-13 and am looking forward to another great meal and hopefully the same service Alberto provided on our 1st visit. If in the area I d highly recommend taking the time to stop by for a wonderful Italian meal.
my fiance and i went to melinis last week..the building could use alot of updating...the food was just ok but our service was really bad..our waiter kinda threw our plates on the table took offf and we never saw him again our table was not checked on at all.we were not offered refills and our dirty plates were on the table ..finally we ask for our bill which was $33...needless to say was the first time in my life i didnt leave a tip..wont go there again
I went to college in Morehead and have since moved to Lexington. I honestly believe this place would be the best Italian food in Lexington. I think people get caught up the American style version of Italian food. This place to me is unique and so if the food. The staff is awesome and you will not find service better anywhere else. I would pay double what they charge for a dish. Great place to eat and is a must if you are visiting the college, Cave Run, or just Morehead in general.
i must agree with quiet..food is way overpriced and i do not work for the compition...pasta is very greesy and thr poultry is definatly not the best meat if u kno what im sayin try to cut the prices or make the food better!!!!!!!
Wow - Had dinner with 3 other friends (all big eaters) and the meal was terrific. Food very well prepared and tasty. Very reasonable prices, great variety and good service. If you can overlook the dated decor... your in for a treat.
While I'm not entirely convinced of the authenticity of Melini Cuzina, I can't deny that they offer a wide variety of Italtian dishes that are far better than anything Fazoli's could muster up. Generally speaking, the staff is friendly and helpful and I also can't complain about prices, especially during lunch, because for the portions and free bread sticks you recieve their prices are more than satisfactory. They also have an extensive wine menu.
