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.

Vanellis has always been a favorite for me and my friends. The chicken tetrazinni is the best I have ever had anywhere. They also make the best pizzas in town. From the buffet and warm dining area to across the way to the bar with live entertainment perfect for Beer and Pizza (or the great appetizers try the fried raviolli).... More

Just ok. Had the Greek salad and it was very salty. The pizza was good. Otherwise it's an average place

We were traveling Christmas Day and stayed all night in Tupelo, thankfully they were open. Nothing else was. The place was packed and the pizza and service were excellent. The also had a marvellous looking buffet filled with homemade pasta dishes (lasagna, etc. & pizzas). We didn't want to eat that much since we were travelling but we wished we... More

Never been to Tupelo and was staying at a hotel behind the resturant. Decided to go for lunch and to my surprise, this guy had a Italian buffet which included baby butter beans seasoned with ham and collard greens; and a FRESH salad bar. Where do you find that anymore.....? I'm from Atlanta and even some of the resturants don't... More
