The food here is very good with ok sized portions, and not what I've grown to expect from Italian restaurants (I don't remember seeing manacotti or lasagna on the menu). The people I dined with all enjoyed their meals, and I LOVED their chocolate mousse. I chose this restaurant as the location for my birthday dinner after reading many glowing reviews on the location. I booked a table for 12 for a 7:30 dinner on a Saturday night. I was dissappointed to see that we were seated as 2 tables of 6. I didn't say anything about it since the restaurant was crowded (and they had another party of 10+ at the front of the restaurant seated together). Our party ended up being 2 people short at the last minute, and our waiter complained about it for the better part of our meal. So, I'd say skip Tello for groups of 6 or more, unless you make your reservation for the time they open. The food is good, with ample servings, but if I had known we'd be seated separetly, I would have made reservations else where.
Pros: inexpensive, cute spot for dining
