The only way to enjoy a meal at Cello's is to plan ahead. They offer a delicious meal that I think you will love. It is a quaint and intimate location with limited seating. You can call ahead to find out what evenings are available, they book quickly!

Cellos is one of those places that really bring a smile to your palate. The town is very cozy and walking friendly. There is still that hippie 60's feel to it with a great atmosphere. The restaurant is cozy and quaint yet ecclectic. Lori and Andy are gracious hosts and very approachable and easy to have a nice conversation with.... More

We were on our way to the Kansas concert at Ruth Eckerd when my husband searched for somewhere nearby that served steak. What a lucky find! The restaurant is small and we were fortunate it wasn't too busy as we got right in. Lori was our server and she was awesome! She was so helpful to us with selecting our... More

Dinner with some coworkers after work on a November Thursday evening. It is a small place with no more than 10 tables, so I imagine it can fill up quickly. Tonight, was quiet. There was one other table with a reservation card on it, but I never remember them entering. There appeared to be one person serving. She handled all... More

First time trying this restaurant, but it won't be the last! Reservations are a must, as it is a very intimate venue (10 or 12 tables). Friendly staff. Tablecloths & linen napkins, but a casual bistro vibe. No alcohol, but they do allow you to bring your own wine & beer for a $6 corkage fee, which we were glad... More

The new owners have done themselves proud with their inventive chef and new menu. From appetizers to dessert, we enjoyed everything! The short rib flatbread appetizer could be light meal in itself. The fact that you bring your own beer and wine is something that we really like.

Recently, Lynn and I and local friends dined out at Cello's. We had not been there in years. It is now under new ownership, but the great quality of food and service continues. We had a great server. We started with a special appetizer of flat bread with short ribs. Wonderful. Lynn and I both had Cello's Filet Mignon with... More

Great little place! The menu is not overly ambitious but has something for every taste. In addition to the regular menu, they offer specials. Dishes are well prepared and very generous in size. We had several of the appetizers, including the flatbread, hummus trio, gazpacho, and the eggplant tapenade and ended taking some home because of the quantity. I had... More

We are long time guests of cellos and we have NEVER had a bad meal. Tonight was no exception. The new owners have meet and exceeded our expectations. Our waiter John was very personable and attentive. The food --- the filet was amazing. Top of the line filet with Demi glace for less than $22.00. Out of this world! Bring... More

We had three dinners, one appetizer and one dessert. We sent 2 of the items back and one was inedible. First, the salad is nothing special. about the same collection of ditch weed you find everywhere, with a choice of vinaigrette or vinaigrette dressing. The short rib appetizer was excellent, with pulled beef, pickled onions and pimentos. Spicy but sweet,... More

Management response:

We are so sorry that the food did not meet your expectations on this visit. We are in the process of changing the menu, and you may be happy to know that the dishes you enjoyed (Braised Short Rib Flatbread & Rigatoni Bolognese) will still be featured, while some of the less successful dishes are being retired. Thank you for... More
