We ate here on a one night stay over while traveling back home from Charlotte, NC. This restaurant was one block in front of our hotel, we walked here after being in the car for most of the day. This was a family run business and the service and food was great, a week after our visit, we found out... More

We ate here in April as we passed through town. The ladies at the local Comfort Inn recommended it to our family. Food was delicious and the servings were BIG- the salads were especially good. Just sat down to review this spot and see that the tornado hit the following week. So sad! Hope they rebuild!

Hope they decide to reopen but it will be a while if they do. The building is totally destroyed due to a tornado that did a tremendous amount of destruction and damage in Tupelo. We've visited all over the US and have never had better pizza. My brother in law from Scottsdale/Anthem/Phoenix area always eats here when he comes to... More

After checking into the nearby Quality Inn I got to Vanelli’s after 9pm on a Saturday. The hostess and waitress were friendly, the table comfortable and quiet, and the meal good. I had a pita gyro, fries, and soda. The selection was good for the time of night. I would have preferred an option to substitute healthier vegetables for the... More

My family and I were traveling through Tupelo and were anxious to stop at Vanelli's for dinner. We previously dined here before about 2 years ago but on a week-night. We had Greek salads which were delicious. This time, though, we had the buffet since it was a Saturday night. The waitress recommended it telling us about the four entrees... More

Vanelli's has the best pizza I've ever had. Their House Pizza is wonderful! And Papa Vanelli hosts singers and songwriters every Monday night, which showcases local talent from near and far. I recommend this place to anyone for a romantic night or to just hang out with some friends. You won't be disappointed.

Our problem when we go to an Italian Restaurant, I want several item off the menu and usually can't make up my mind. So we go to the Appetizers. Calamari was excellent, the onion rings were great and the Greek cheese and spinach pie was super.Did I mention this is a Greek and Italian Restaurant, which also has a large... More

We've eaten at Vanelli's several times in the past and usually thought it was great. Not tonight. The service was fine, and the meal was copious (we brought two to-go boxes home with us). However, what we got tasted pretty ordinary, which is not what we want when we eat out, as we don't eat out very often. My wife... More

When this restaurant moved from their original they lost their true identity. The food now is average with many of the dishes tasting the same. Their Greek salad is good but the pizza is just average.
