Overbearing, unaccommodating, owner/manager. Food slightly above average. Overpriced. Very unpleasant experience. Many, many other restaurants in the Palm Springs area. Pick a different one

The second time we went as guests of another couple, the meal was even worse and the service abysmal. Hearing others say they had enjoyed their meals at Cello's we gave it one more shot.... More

Hello, While we are certainly glad that you gave us three tries, we are disappointed that we had let you down each time you have dined with us. We apologize that both the food and the service has been lackluster on separate occasions, but we do wish that we had been made aware of your concerns while you were still... More

After the Cuisine and Art Tuesday in Cathedral City, we chose Cello's among 8 restaurants offering the $20 three-course dinner. We all picked the mussels cooked in a seasoned tomato broth with bits of chorizo sausage for spice. My only suggestion would be to add a baguette for soaking up the broth.My only suggestion would be to add a baguette... More

We had such a special evening last night! The Drinks we are good solid pour. The French onion soup was one of the best we've had. I had the scampi and my husband had the short ribs both were excellent! We even have left overs! The live music was a very special touch .
