The Braciole was tough as leather. Apparently warmed up from prior day. I should have sent it back, but we had an 8 pm theater curtain. I really would like a refund of the $19.95 for the braciole. My 2 companions liked their food. -- W D T

Will absolutely go back. The gnocchi was fabulous and my husband had the special, fillet of sole stuffed with crab, shrimp and scallops - he loved it.

My bf had the veal which was a bit dry. I had the chicken tello which was fine but nothing to write home about.

Circa 1960 NYC Italian restaurant food that was plated but not good. Plating of food dated. Quality passable.

I love the food, but using the groupon was very difficult, Groupon says just make a reservation, do not print anything, When I got there they keep asking me for my groupon number .... This went around for 20 minutes, then they found it and took 20% which was incorrect. The groupon was a nightmare

From Our Editors

Classic Old-Country traditions thrive at Tello's Ristorante, which embraces the cooking as well as the charm of a homespun Italian trattoria. The chefs glaze al dente pastas with sauces featuring everything from classic tomato and basil to a hint of saffron. Eggplant parmigiana, breaded veal cutlets, and grilled salmon with capers, olives, and lemon help complete the menu of familiar comfort foods. Additionally, Tello's Ristorante features a curated wine list that includes bottles from Italy, France, and the malbec-spewing geysers of Argentina.

Insiders' Tips

  • The restaurant takes its name from Alonso Telloits head chef.
  • Tello's Ristorante opened in 1999, although the decor draws inspiration from a slightly older era.
  • Red-and-white checkered tablecloths, a vintage soda machine, black-and-white photographs, and a jukebox playing Sinatra's greatest hits surround diners as they eat.
  • Antipasti platters can include healthy portions of imported Italian meats.
  • The restaurant's signature entree is the braised braciole, which arrives stuffed with prosciutto, parmesan, garlic, and bread crumbs and accompanied by a side of gnocchi.
