“Yum and Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We live nearby and it never gets old. If you want to enjoy a fun atmosphere, a great bar, and a delicious meal, eat at Rellas. Highly recommend the garlic parmesan chicken wings and the meatball sliders. I also had a pumpkin martini there that was amazing. The pizza and chopped salad are always a hit!

“Great place for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place is a great supporter of our local area. A great place to take the family after an afternoon football game.

“Nice local place for a good pizza & live weekend entertainment.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Wood fired pizza oven produces a very good product. We like Grandma' crust. The Italian menu is overly ambitious & too spicy in many cases like the chicken scarparello. We were lucky enough to be there when the Bambjino Brothers were performing ( a great local band). The bar was packed & loving it.

“Went on Recommendation But Won't Be Back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We have a vacation home in a neighboring community and are always looking to discover new places to dine nearby. So taking a friend's advice, we gave Rella's a try at a time off peak. Upon entering we had our choice of seating, but the whole scene appeared dated, tired and not the cleanest. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive to all our needs. We ordered an order of mussels to start. They were mostly OK although a few had a fishy taste which made me suspect their freshness. Served with a warm bread loaf which made for tasty dipping in the red sauce which my wife loved - me not so much. Both of us honed in on what some touted as a signature sandwich, their French dip. It was made with a great roll, good melted mutz, and plenty of roast beef au juice. With accompanying sweet potato fries the meal was fine. Prices seemed to be on the hIgher side of what one might expect for the place, particularly some drinks. If you're going check out for specials in advance.

“Smelled bad, looked bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I have learned that its best to check a place out before dragging the whole family in. Hungry out of towner, did just that & turned right around & walked out. Loud bar crowd packed at the bar. Lots of drinking going on. Place smelled like old cigarettes.. Not my kinda place for family dining.
