Losing Old Time Charm

Lelli's is starting to lose its old time charm; the ambience is losing its luster. Upon entering the restaurant, there was a pile of chairs not in service that kind of slams you in the face. For the prices they charge, I would expect a better entryway to go along with the high-end prices... read more

A total ripp off. Went there with college's. Grumpy service, too high prices. 50$ for a tuna that wasn't for this price on the menu. Please don't go here, much better place around.

We really liked our entrees -- Shrimp Lelli's and Pasta Carbonara -- so I will give 4 stars. However, there are several areas of improvement. There are 2 ways to order -- either "a la carte" or "traditional". We ordered the "traditional" because it is served with a small plate of pasta bolognese and Lelli's has a great meat sauce....

This was our first time at Lellis and we had a wonderful experience! Although the decor may seem outdated- it was reminiscent of a time past- quiet classy dinners with romantic mood lighting. It was the first time in a long time we had been to a restaurant where it was quiet enough to have a conversation with each other... More

Don't miss it as the food and service is fantastic. The seven course meals that are offered are prepared to excellence that are tasty and plentiful. The sauce is really exquisite. The atmosphere is very intimate as well. I would recommend any meal.

Food is always fabulous. Steaks amazing. Sea bass exceptional. We took our young adults to celebrate our daughtee's 18rh birthday. We were so disappointed in our service. The waiter was not friendly at all. Disappointed!

Looks like a very old fashioned restaurent with an outdated decoration and waiters with black tie / black suit, but service is on top level same for the food. Was now there already second time, one of my favourites in this area. Overall it's not cheap but you get something for your money, Meat is good quality, ok no comparison... More

This place had huge and amazing steak. I'm a big eater and had to get a to go box. I really had every intention to finish it because it was so good, but couldn't . The quality of the meat is great , fresh and juicy, not at all stringy or tough. We came on a Groupon, so the price... More
