I had an excellent dinner here. Started with a Caesar Salad made with kale instead of romaine lettuce. Dining companions warned me that kale is "tough and chewy" but I wanted to try it anyway. The kale was quite good, and I'd order that salad again. My main course, salmon, was cooked perfectly as I'd ordered it. Service was cordial... More

The mussels were awesome. My friends each liked their choices as well. Trying to get extra bread though was difficult. Pleasant surroundings but boring decor. Great service from our waitress.

Had a wonderful dinner on 12/23/14 at Cello's. The food, service and decor were terrific! Kudos to Tom and Bonnie for this gem of a resturant!

The regular, continental menu is great, but the happy hour menu is perfect for light eating. The meatballs are the best. Nice owners, staff and ambiance. Of course the homemade limoncello is a must experience.

This is one of the best restaurants in the Palm Springs area that you have to know about to even find. Perhaps its location in Cathedral City has much to do with that, but this husband and wife owned establishment never disappoints. The dinning room is small but charming, service is excellent, but the food is the true stand out.

Self-described as an American Bistro, we've had some great meals and some that were just a little off. Food is generally tasty, if occasionally bland. Service can be a bit spotty, too. Last time it was great until desert, then the bill came unbidden while we still had secret on our plates and with no offer of coffee or an... More

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
