The menu was quite limited. However we stuck with the italian pasta dishes, which did not disappoint. Service was slow. We waited almost 10 minutes after our salads had arrived for wine. Would recommend going during the week for their food and wine specials.

I enjoyed my meal of chicken marsala with side salad. I wish the menu was a little bigger. Service was a little slow and we were there at 5pm. My water glass was empty and not refilled.

Visited Tello's late on a Tuesday evening and thoroughly enjoyed both the spaghetti and the pasta with sausage and mushrooms. The sauces were delicately, but brightly flavored with just the right amount of spice. Just like being in Southern Italy. Also enjoyed the grilled romaine salad with lemon vinegrette. Service was very good, too.

Got into town late and most places were either packed or closed. We came to Tellos and sat at the bar and had a lovely meal with Michigan wines. Will go back again to try more of their very good Italian cooking.

Looking for dinner on July 4. We had a hungry toddler with us. First two restaurants 40 minute wait. Found Tello's, no wait. Friendly waitstaff, sat us right away. Had a pleasant dinner. Seemed a bit pricy at first looking at menu but when the bill came it worked out to around $65 for 5 people. That was with drinks which was very
reasonable.
