Always a great place for dining out. I had the pizza and it was excellent. My darling bride had pasta (always does) and it too was delicious. And reasonably priced.

Awesome service and delicious food! The mushroom ravioli and the bruschetta was exceptional! Never been disappointed in the food nor the service having been there about half a dozen times.

It was our first visit to Celli's. OUr request for a window table was fulfilled. Our request for a
leisurely dinner was also honoured. Our waiter was personable and attentive.
My Arugula and beet salad was good but I thought small for the $12.00 price.
I ordered the pasta bolognese, which was nothing special especially for the heafty price of
$25.00. My friend was happy with her personal pizza with squash and at $16.00 was a
reasonable price,
My cappucino was disappointingly small.
I will not visit again.

The food was great, we had calameri, pizza and spaghetti with meatballs. There was a big group that night and our meals were really delayed. The manager proactively apologized and offered us desserts on the house to compensate. Nice touch. The almond terrine was awesome.

Apps and drinks we very good. I had the steak which was over priced and undercooked which came with the frittes that were very cold. The rest of the food was quite good. Prices are a little high for the quality of food.

The food was simply amazing. My wife had the caprese salad and the side rib special and I had the Linguini did Mare. It was one of the best pasta experience I've had outside of Italy. Dan was our server and he was very knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. Great experience and would definitely recommend.

A nice place with interesting options. Staff was very attentive to menu choices and changes as requested.
Pricing was average for the ambiance and quality of food.
some dishes could have been a little hotter.

The food was amazing. The gnudi was to die for. Both of our husbands got steaks and loved them. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable of the menu. She directed us towards items that definitely suited our pallets. Would highly recommend.

Excellent wine, excellent food, excellent service. I have been coming here for years, usually on special occasions, as it is not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. I have come here for every first date I have ever been on. If you are coming here for a special occasion with friends or family you haven't seen in a while I would suggest getting a private room, as sometimes normal seating can be a little too noisy. Usually not a problem, however. Overall, this restaurant has excellent value for what you pay for, the people here are very professional and courteous, the food is authentically Italian, but contemporary, and their wine list is fantastic. I will certainly continue coming here.

We had to wait a few extra minutes to be seated once we arrived since it was very busy (Valentine's Day), however, the experience was great once we were. Our waitress was very friendly and informative about the menu and was able to give us a point of view on many dishes to help us decide what to order. She was attentive in making sure we always had what we needed, and she had a great sense of humor which made the experience even better. The food was fantastic as well, we ordered calamari to start, which was delicious, and for main dishes, we were recommended the pizza since the restaurant is known for it. I ordered Diavolo and my boyfriend ordered Carne and we were blown away. Both were perfection! We will definitely be going back!

Love the authentic Italian dishes. Pizza and pasta remind me of Italy. Share plate of our choice of cheese and meat was a great way to start. Just didn't have enough room for dessert this time. Love it! Our waitress was great as well.
