Great food!

Never had anything bad here. Classic Italian dishes. Mostly takeout since there's only 4 tables inside (counter service). During warm weather there's sometimes two additional tables outside. Additional locations in Needham, West Newton and a couple other places.

When family comes to visit, they always ask for Comella's. The "mess" is a crowd pleaser! We've never had the pizza, but all of the mess dishes are delish!

This little gem is a family favorite when nobody wants to cook dinner. They are famous for their "mess" dishes and I have always enjoyed the meatball subs. The mess is exactly what it sounds like...a mess of different ingredients tossed together. But it is hearty and it works. You can dine in, but there are not very many tables.... More

Comella's is a great option for pizza and for their signature "messes." When we're in the mood for take out, it's near the top of the list in Needham.

We love Comellas. It's simple, fresh and quick. Last night we had a pizza with ricotta and pepperoni- the pepperoni was thinly sliced and very fresh, the ricotta was soft and pillowy, barely holding it's shape but retaining it's warmth. They are very friendly on the phone and in person. I would agree with other reviews that the pasta dishes... More

I live close by and frequently enjoy a dish of lasagna for less than $6 - can you believe that? My other favorite item is their large cheese pizza for $5 plus tax - but it must be a take out item. I especially like taking it home and enjoying it with a homemade salad. The quality is good and... More

I love the consistency and ease of this place. Everything is always exactly perfect. I could eat bowl of their sauce. Everything travels well and we get a lot of takeout here. Portions are generous. Orders are always correct.

If you want a $5 pizza, look no further than Comellas. There isn't really much to this Comellas (small location) but you can sit outside if the tables aren't taken and the food is great. The only reason I took off a circle is because nearly all of the many times I've been in there the front staff seems annoyed... More

There is nothing super special about Comella's. It is just better than the other greasy pizza places in Wellesley. The five dollar plain pizza is generous and a super buy. I have found the other items less appetizing. The pasta dishes are too heavy and the salads have too much dressing, a common problem.

It is understandable why this chain has so many locations: the food is tasty, plentiful and cheap. The "home cooking" style can not be called "cuisine" and those looking for low cost/low fat options might not be happy, but this is an easy way to feed a crowd (or make a "single" serving go a long way).
