On 10/25/2013, My girlfriend and I travelled to Tupelo for the start of a four-day "Elvis weekend" and had the good fortune to stop at Vanelli's for dinner. The service was excellent. Our waitress was "Brandy", a very sweet and gracious college student. We ordered a pepperoni, sausage, and pineapple pizza and a plate of spaghetti with meatballs. The meal was wonderful. The pizza was as good as I have ever eaten anywhere, NYC included! It was not greasy, as most pepperoni & sausage pizzas are. We found that the restaurant takes the time to boil its sausage before it is prepared for the pizza, which removes almost all the excess oily juices. The restaurant also buys top quality pepperoni in long rolls, not the pre packaged sliced pepperoni used by most restaurants. I would rank the pizza as #1. As for the spaghetti with meatballs, well it was likewise incredibly tasty and fresh! All in all, a perfectly wonderful meal, as good as any restaurant I have been to, and Patty and I live in the Washington, DC area, with thousands of restaurants to choose from. At the conclusion of our great dinner, the owner/manager, Mr. vOz Vanelli, visited with us for a bit, making the start of a wonderful weekend even more memorable. For friendliness and fine food, I recommend Vanelli's Restaurant highly. I only wish it were located in northern Virginia or MD, where Patty and I live!
