Not bad. Was just blah… food was pricey and not worth it.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Great menu, tasty food, very accommodating service. Initial appetizer order was a bit on the slow side to arrive, but no big deal. Food quality made us forget about it, and it was smooth sailing after that. We will return.

This is a great, friendly, convenient neighborhood restaurant. The carbonara was excellent, as was the roasted cauliflower and the arancini. The scallops were too salty. The caprese salad had lots of arugula (yum) but only okay tomatoes.

The menu is deceptive: the lobster "stew" was not a stew but a soup. This was annoying when we were ordering two appetizers only. The sauteed mussels were not, they were steamed. When asked, the waiter said they were fried in a pan but that didn't seem to be true, they seemed to be regularly steamed.

Great food. Nice ambiance. Waitstaff didn’t change to clean silverware after first course. Too cold in formal dining room. Waitstaff did not wear masks. Loved the restaurant and the food and look forward to returning. So far best restaurant in Brookline . Reasonable prices for the high quality of the food.

My first time into vello as quest was amazing. I started out with chilled corn soup very refreshing, the mushroom Arancini are to die for their so good. My favourite entree is the seafood pasta all fresh local seafood in beautiful lobster broth make sure you order garlic bread with this dish.

When I came in I didn’t have the seafood pasta I had the crusted haddock with parsnip purée it was delightful. The service was great Micheal really took care off us.

Make sure you end on sweet note my favourite dessert is tiramsui and vello has thee best tiramsui in Brookline. Vello is real gem so go check it out

Really enjoyed our evening. The food tasted terrific. Great menu of unique entrees and familiar favorites. Great service team. I always dislike when plates are cleared before everyone is finished.

OK food, very bad although well meaning service.
I realize the place is new, but still...you don't service wine i a hot glass, you don't bring fries with a salad unless specifically asked to, and more.....

New restaurant in Brookline. Food was absolutely delicious, but they didn’t have a true bartender so our waiter was making our drinks and they were delayed once it got a little busy. I think they need to scale up the staff and the experience would have been 5 stars!!
