“Perfect pastas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Extremely varied choices of pastas, along with fish and meats - all seemingly cooked to perfection, not to mention the excellent focaccia bread! The Maitre'd is exceptionally friendly and accomodating and while the exterior of the restaurant is extremely unassuming, the interior is cozy and charmingly decorated. The location is well hidden but has plenty of free parking in the vicinity. Just perfect for an informal, relaxing dinner in the Italian style.

“Intimate environment with innovative dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We had a delightful dinner earlier this week composed of dishes that are riffs on foods made for the chef's daughter, lovely mussels, and a bolognese sauce that is hearty and tasty.

We had a nice wine for a very reasonable price. Overall, very pleasant meal with a very interactive chef. We'll return.

“Hidden gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We have been to Cello a half a dozen times and always enjoyed the varied menu of this chief owned restaurant. The seating is very limited with only 15 or so tables and the ambiance is excellent. Paul the owner/chief is a great guy and always stops by your table to chat for a couple of minutes. There are so many odd things on his ever changing menu that are a joy to eat and I hope that this restaurant is around for a long time. Get on his mailing list for occasional specials such as BYOB or free bottle of wine with dinner. To be honest don't go here if you are expecting to have enough to take leftovers home as the portions are fairly small.
