Great little place to eat...I got into town late one night and they were just closing. I turned to leave but they took me in and served me a quick dinner. Rarely do I find such friendly service and the food was great. Thanks Melo.

We had a family dinner there with about 15 people. It was handled very well by the waiter. The food was great. And it was a good environment.

The good was amazing as always! However, it service wasn't great. Not sure if she was new or what. We had to ask for a drink, a drink menu, dessert menu, bag for leftovers.

A wonderful neighborhood bistro with great food and friendly service. It's like a visit to an European village bistro.

They take orders to go. Delicious tiramisu and cannoli

have no problem with restaurants that are not the most appealing on the outside, or small and tight on the inside, or incredibly long waits due to their popularity, as I've experienced this literally all over the country! It's charming to a certain extent! On MLK Day, this was certainly the experience as I visited for the first time!

One of the best small plate experiences in Durham. Everything on the menu is simple and delicious.

Good spot featuring a number of pasta dishes as well as a tapas menu, a number of entrees, and salads. The tapas items are very good, but it is a fairly limited tapas menu with a few items being things I really wouldn't consider tapas. Several really good items though. Pasta dishes are good and big. Entrees are good too. Not necessarily spectacular, like pasta not made in house, but good comfort food. Space itself is nice enough despite being in strip mall. Not fancy by any means, but it has a nice welcoming feel. Service is attentive. I wouldn't put this restaurant on same level as say Gocciolina, but it is good food. Kid friendly as well.

This is me and my wife’s favorite Italian place in Durham. We’ve been many times and it never disappoints. A must hit if you are looking for some home-cooked, fulfilling Italian food!

I found Melo Trattoria online and decided to give it a try. Walking in I loved the setup of the locations. It was cute and cozy, and just felt like a great place to spend some time with my loved ones. I loved the artwork they had there, it added to the charm for me. But the food was AMAZING!!
