“Bad Pizza and Burnt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We ordered here because they delivered to our hotel. The pizza was gross and gooey and the cheese bread was burnt. There was no seasoning in the pizza or the crust. It was also expensive, $23.99 for large meat lovers pizza. We definitely won;t go back.

“some things never change!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

My wife and I have been going to Vanelli's for over 35 years..they started out in a very small place with waferboard walls, and probably didn't have 5-6 tables..at the time, we thought they had the very best Pizza ever, and "Papa" Vanelli never failed to come over and visit with us every time we were there(usually every Friday night)(always had a story to tell)..I remember when they decided to upgrade and build the present location, and how sad I was knowing "our favorite place" would be no longer..then, for a period of time, my wife and I got into losing weight and didn't frequent the favorite places as much as we knew we would eat too much because it was so good...
Well tonight, another couple and us decided to go, and spurge on the calories, and let me tell you, it is still just as good as ever, and if you leave hungry,.somethings wrong with you..every item on the buffet is out of this world and you can't go wrong with anything offered..we'll just have to be careful to
go just once in a while to dodge the calories, but can't wait to get back...if Cassie waits on you, you will have the best server around too...

“Good food and has a little of everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Food was good but nothing to rave about. I ordered the Ribeye Steak but was disappointed as it was a lower grade of beef. Service was good but a little slow but it was very busy at the time. There was live music in the bar and it seemed like it was the hot spot for the area.

“We Were Impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was our first visit in Tupelo. Being unfamiliar with restaurant choices, we tried this location as it was in close proximity to our hotel. This was a very good choice! Taylor was the friendliest waitress we've come across in a long time. The kitchen was running slow, but Taylor kept us informed. Towards the end of the meal, the owner stopped by the table and regaled us with stories of his family history. It was quite interesting. We like the food and service enough that we stopped in again on our return trip.
