“Cello's Char-house is EXCELLENT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This place is fantastic! We made reservations one day ahead, reservations are suggested. It is a small, intimate setting. Very quaint. The waitress/owner is fabulously funny in presenting the menu options and her responses to your questions or choices. The chef/owner is a fabulous cook with inventive combinations - the spinach/feta rollups with sunflower seeds was a favorite of 2 out of 3 tables on the night we attended! For our entrees, my friend and I both selected the Eggplant Stak-a-tini ... two slices of eggplant with a giant meatball (made from ground filet mignon) baked in the oven with a delicious home-made sauce and cheese! Imagine our surprise when we each got TWO of these! Can you say "lunch box"??!! Anyway, we brought a bottle of wine to compliment the meal (small corking fee - you can also bring beer if you choose) and CASH!! No credit cards accepted! But it's well worth the extra effort! BRAVA to our new favorite Italian restaurant!

“Quaint, fun atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Sauces are always delicious. Love the soup!! I recommend the filet with whatever yummy sauce Sue is making that day. Reservations a must. Enjoy!

“A little off the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Great food, the service was great too if not a little off the wall, the waitress is zany, but in a very cool way.

“Intimate casual dining.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

When you are here, you are family. Small cozy place. Menu limited but excellent. Try the sandwich. It is tastylicious! The girls will treat you like family. BYOB. Nice place to have fun dining time. If you visit Safety Harbor give them a call to make a reservation.

“A unique and wonderful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Imagine going to your long lost cousin's bungalow for dinner and you have entered the world of Cello's. From the moment you enter the door, you are family, as the quirky and wonderful Ellen greets and seats you and commences to sing the offerings of the eve. The concept is easy...fish, chicken, beef or veggie....nightly choice of three sauces and voile, Sue Cello creates her little masterpieces.
Value cannot be beat...atmosphere calls you back, and a wonderful night is had by all.
