I would give this no stars if it were possible on this website. I have been eating at this restaurant since it had opened. (10 Yrs or so) It always had great food, great presentation, fabulous service and a great wine selection. But as the prices became outrageous ($12 for a glass of wine!) I have stayed away since 2008. My husband and I decided to revisit as the food had always been spectacular. Let me tell you about our $105 disapointment:

I ordered the cold seafood salad appitizer which was the special that the waiter described as crab meat, shrimp, calamari, and scallops served over a bed of greens with an olive oil dressing. ($15) OMG! Frozen miniature cocktail shrimp, fake crabmeat, 4 pieces of calamari and a few scallops thrown into a large bowl on top of a few sprigs of parsley.

Next up: Spaghettini alle Vongole
Spaghetti tossed with clams sauteed in olive oil, garlic, hot pepper flakes and a white wine sauce.

This turned out to be about 1 lb of pasta that was undercooked, way under al dente, thrown on top of a bunch of clam shells. The red pepper flakes turned out to be slices of halapeno peppers!

Let's discuss the wine by the glass selection: for the white wine: the choice was white zinfindel, pino grigio or a cheap california chardonay. Only $8 per glass now. Yikes!

And let's talk about the assembly line service in the dining room. We saw the waiter twice..once when he took our order and then when he delivered the check. The bus boy delivered the food. The waiter never asked how we were, how the food was that was served, and never asked if we wanted another glass of wine or if we needed anything.

The most disgraceful thing about the demise of this Bux Mont award winning restaurant is that chef Angelo knows better than this. He knows how to serve great food and provide excellent service and presentation.
Shame on him. Save yourself a $100+ disapointment. Stay away!!!

Anyone who recommends Villa Barolo over Ristorante Il Melograno has their head way up their lobster ravioli. Villa Barolo is classy? If I want to be served by kids wearing headsets I'll go to Old Navy. Melograno is the best Italian restaurant in the area, and one of the best restaurants period. The service is always exceptional, the food fresh and delicious. My wife and I are always excited when we have a reservation to dine here...it truly is something to look forward to.

This small local eatery has some of the best food and staff in the area. We've eaten there at least a dozen times and each meal has been over the top. Extraordinary Scallop appetizer and fantastic entrees. Their lobster ravoili has big chunks of lobster in the sauce that accompanies it. They have a great dessert menu and excellent service. Its family owned and the owner who is also the cook frequents the dining room to make sure you are happy with your choices. Its the best kept secret in Doylestown!!!

I took my family and father here on a recommendation. All six of us enjoyed everything we were served, some of the best Italian we've had. The service was perfect: professional, friendly, prompt and knowledgable.

Il Melograno is a wonderful restaurant serving excellent Italian food in a shopping center in Doylestown. Don't let the store front fool you, it is warm and pretty inside and the family who run it are very friendly. Entrees are about $12-20 with some higher (rack of lamb $26, veal chop $29). The wine list is excellent and well priced too. Il Melograno serves the best Italian food in the suburbs.
