Worth a visit

Came here on a weekend (check their hours because they close early on Sunday). Impressive menu with a ton of choices, they also have an ice cream and smoothie counter. Good quality food, service kind of slow. It's kind of like an upscale diner and is kid-friendly.

I like Vello's and its staff but it's tough getting out of there for lunch for 2 for under $30-35 plus. Menu is a bit boring if you've been going there a long time. Wish they would offer some creative specials once in awhile. Their fries are great! Grilled Quesadilla with veggies are very good. They do offer soup and... More

This is a great place for families or individuals looking for a variety of great sandwiches or just breakfast. One of my favorite places to have breakfast with an assortment of choices on their menu. Located in a small plaza in Westwood as you walk in you get a sense of community and a modern family environment feel with local... More

My husband & I were out shopping in Westwood and we found this place online and it looked good. It is somewhat small, but we got there at a good time around 11:30 a.m. on a Thursday. Service was a little slow, but they got busy, so that understandable. The food, however, was great. They have big menu with lots... More

I have tried to love this place and have stopped by about once a month to pick up food for dinner for over a year. If you are going for breakfast fine it is ok but often dirty. I have had my to go dinner order lost twice now with the system went down as the explanation. The place is... More

I have reviewed Vello's before. This time with 34 friends from our 45th class reunion. We called in advance telling them we expected only 24. We kinda took over the place. The staff were great, food was great. The evening was a blast. They made it possible.

Was pleasantly surprised when we tried Vello's for dinner. There is a large assortment of choices on the menu, including for kids. My daughter loved the French fries and burger. The pulled pork was good. Service is very slow and took about 45 minutes to get our food - I think this is due to having one or two cooks,... More

The food is fresh, expertly cooked and price right. It is the place where locals go to meet and eat. Serve was outstanding.

Love this place! The food is consistently good. Never had a bad meal here. It is a small family run restaurant that delivers every time. The mismatched tables and chairs, mason jars for beverages and somewhat noisy atmosphere are part of what makes this place great. My favorite is the buffalo chicken wrap with a side of mixed greens.

Found this by accident. Great breakfast. The coconut MA toast was very good. Service a little slow, but food was worth the wait. The omelet was very good, plenty of food to start the day. Would love to go back to try some other items on the menu. Just plan on extra time.
