Cello's is the kind of place you return to over and over. The menu, like the restaurant, is small. But the flavors and personalities loom large. The food exceeds anything you may get at a typical chain restaurant and on par or better with 5 star snob joints. Friendly service, reasonable prices, you... read more

Cello's is a place where we celebrate our "most" important special days! It is like being with family when you are there. We laugh, we cry, we love Sue and Ellen and, of course, the food ain't too bad either!

I had my small wedding reception here and it was fabulous. Sue and Ellen are two of the kindest and most accommodating people I have ever met. From the meal planning to the decorations and even providing our wedding cake..they handled it all. You bring your own wine and beer (cork fee), which means you get to bring your favorites.... More

Open for dinner tuesday thru saturday by reservation. 6 tables seat 30 guests. Menu includes limited choices of a daily meat and a fish with specialty choice of sauces like apple and cranberry. All entrees come with same starch and daily veg. Dessert is usually a daily deal too. Owner/chef prepares dishes with care. Period 1940's patriotic decor. Located in... More

A most charming and eclectic environment...just love the feel of the place! Walk in the door and be greeted by the most fun and gracious Ellen. Food...unbelievable. Filet with horseradish cream sauce for me and a tower of eggplant for my dining partner...cheese soup with popcorn or generous, fresh salad topped with goldfish...whimsy and excellence. Sue, the chef, pops out... More

We stopped by this little restaurant because we heard they had good food and a special atmosphere but I am very, very disappointed by poor attention of staff that left the kitchen to receive us. In a very rude manner I was asked by a women if we had reservation, which my answer was not, and we were just kicked... More

What a wonderful place. Eclectic ambiance and menus combined with sarcastic and theatrical service makes this a one of a kind restaurant

Small and quaint, it is also special and personable. Sue and Ellen make you feel like family, as we do (our daughter's rehearsal dinner was there, and we make sure they are included on our Christmas card list each year). The food is exceptional, and while there is not an extensive menu, it is all home made, and exquisite, from... More

Ellen and Sue are the perfect blend of sugar and spice and their creations are delicious, creative, unique, fresh, inventive and ALMOST as much fun as the two of them!! Our ENTIRE family is lucky to have found this gem!
