This place is everything you would expect from a 5 star restaurant. Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Wait-staff is outstanding and attentive, chef prepared my steak perfectly as ordered. Good wine list. Will definitely be back.

This is a great place to treat someone for a special occasion or even a surprise for someone you love. This place is pretty expensive but not a every day place. The Steaks are great ask for medium it's what the chef recommend.

Wonderful menu, but be forewarned, if you don't order ala carte, you will be taking food home with you! The full course includes an antipasto tray, soup, salad and two sides! Most people in our group could not finish it all. I ordered the assortment of 4 appetizers and it was just about right for a meal. Drinks are "man-sized."... More

Lelli's is such a treat! The minestrone soup is one of a kind, as is all of their wonderful authentic Italian recipes. Make sure you try a steak with the zip sauce and for dessert try the homemade chocolate ice cream.

And this is the place for old school Italian. This was my first visit to the new location. The service was attentive and the food was perfect. I will say that it ranges to the high side as far as cost/value, but worth it for the special occasion.

Wow, they have really good food. The atmosphere was really nice too. The wait staff was friendly and did a good job. This is a pricey restaurant but the food was top notch and cooked perfectly.
