This is a cheap and cheerful diner style place. If you stray as far as ordering an Australian Shiraz (Rosemount) you will already have challenged the limits for fine dining here. Flavours were ok but this is not to be recommended for good restaurant style eating. It is worrying that this is rated the fourth best restaurant in Tupelo!

We got food to go on Saturday night and it was so good we went back on Sunday for lunch. The pizza, blackened shrimp salad and stuffed grape leaves were all very good. The Spanakopita (spinach cheese pie) was sectacular. The prices were reasonable and the staff was extremely helpful. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Tupelo.

Vanelli's used to be one of the best restaurants in Tupelo when Papa Vanelli was alive and keeping everything top notch. Since his death several years ago, the quality has gone down on everything except the pizza and they run the same items continously on the buffet. It needs some change and innovation.

We were in Tupelo for just part of a week, but ate twice at Vanelli's since we enjoyed the food so much. The stuffed grape leaves were my absolute favorite. The staff was friendly, and the atmosphere quite comfortable. They do a great job.

The staff were friendly and helpful and provided great service. Food was good and portions sizable. This is a family place and has plenty of tables.
Wide variety and made well
I would eat here again.
