We love Cellos so much! We are neighbors with the owners, Bonnie and Tom, but didn't know that when we first started going to Cello's. The service is always fast and attentive, the food is delicious and consistent and the lemon tiramisu is incredibly fantastic- one of the best desserts I've ever had and I'm a chocolate freak. The prices... More

Bonie and Tom not only own a restaurant they are true :hosts: greeting everyone and checking on tables regularly without being overpowering. They make sure the customer- the food- the wait time- is all good- They deserve the success they are having and much more

I have dined in the restaurant and in the Bistro, I like them both for different reasons. This night was another Bistro / Bar meal. I had a Beet salad, Eggplant Cannelloni, my Friend had Bow Ties with Short Rib Ragu. We both enjoyed our meals. Our server Anthony was terrific, very service oriented and attentive.

It happens. A Sunday night. Owner not in the restaurant. Just OK service, overcooked salmon for me and not-great pork chop for my significant other. If this were my first experience there, I would not go back. But I prefer to think it was just an off night.

We dined in the Bistro and started with a perfect Martini and the house Cab. We ordered starters of Mussels and pot roast. The portions were so generous we had another drink and skipped the entree! We were so pleased! Service was excellent, the atmosphere was great and the product terrific!!! The owner Bonnie stopped by to check on us... More

Cello's offers an intimate, comfortable somewhat formal dining opportunity, even in the Bistro. The Bistro offers a lighter dining experience, reasonable and delicious. Should you be in the Bistro between 5 and 6 you can also take advantage of Happy Hour pricing for drinks. The house Cab is highly recommended and at 4 dollars for a generous pour...what can I...

Perhaps this restaurant is a bit off the beaten path if you don't go through Cathedral City but it's busy, crowded and very good. The owners are there most nights and will ensure that you have a great dinner and a good time!
