Great deal on happy hour special menu. 3 course meal for $20. My husband had chicken, liked it a lot. And the 3rd course brownie was FANTASTIC! I had the duck with cherry sauce, nice and crispy. Menu said sweet potato souffle, but it came with tasteless mashed potatoes. Big servings, we brought enough back for another meal. Pleasant place,... More

Love the Chicken Caprise among many other very tasty foods. Many foods have a Mediterranean lemon flavor.

Great location for our neighborhood, with a good menu, great food, and good service. There is a bar menu, to be eaten in the bar area, that is not offered in the dining room. Fairly quiet place, so you can hear each other at your table!!!

When we were vacationing in the Palm Springs area, we were looking for something nearby and cozy. The concierge at our resort recommended Cello's, and are we glad she did. Because it was in the summer, we didn't require a reservation and it turns out that we came in August, is was on the last day, as the restaurant was... More

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 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.
