Seafood Pasta

Because I'm on a restrictive medical diet dining out can be challenging. The chef kindly modified the seafood pasta ( butter, instead of sauces) and it was delicious! I n addition, at another dinner, I enjoyed the wild mushroom agnolotti without worry. Both waitstaff and chef were attentive, professional and helpful. I have also had their brunch menu omelette with mushrooms and red pepper, cooked to a perfect consistency. Outdoor dining is plentiful. If you eat inside, the music is at just the right volume. You can listen to the music, but converse with your friends without shouting, at a normal tone. I enthusiastically recommend this restaurant. Thank you, Vello!

Beef Empanadas

I recently visited Vello and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I am usually disappointed by "American" restaurants but found the menu here more creative and well-prepared. Cooked for an American palate, many of the dishes are a bit on the under-spiced side, but nonetheless tasty. The empanadas were excellent with a fresh light dough and the ricotta donuts were very light and delicious when warm. Our "brunch" dishes were Huevos Rancheros with a mild salsa and far-from-Israeli shakshuka, which was still edible. Definitely worth exploring the dishes further.

Chicken Parmesan

By far the best Chicken Parmesan, I have ever had, been to north end and to high end fine dining Italian restaurants. no one makes like this, not too greasy, still crispy. amazing Pomodoro sauce, cheesy and pasta is to die for. Brookline has real Gem

Orecchiette Pasta with Clams & Sausage

The Orecciette Pasta with Clams & Sausage was superb. The portion is spot on, the white sauce is flavorful and has a great consistency that pairs well with many of the either red or white wines served. The sausage was crumbled instead of big pieces. The clams were cooked perfectly. The presentation was beautiful. The greens in the pasta are a nice touch and the whole plate overall was a hit!

Swordfish Rollatini

Agree re. Swordfish Rollatini. Fabulous dish. Creaminess of the stuffing, contrasted with the crunchy small chunks of buttered breadcrumbs and good quality, well-cooked, swordfish, was extraordinary (I also would like to see it as an entree). Other dishes I tried from the prix fixe 3-coarse Sunday jazz night menu were fine but more ordinary (I didn't expect a big breaded and deep-fried hunk of veal when I ordered the scallopini, but that was probably on me). Came primarily to see the wonderful Winikers' band and the food was a bonus. I'm going back.

Miso Glazed Salmon

The food at Vello is fresh and delicious. I love the salmon. I eat a lot of salmon and he salmon at Vello is by far the best I have had. It's cooked but very soft and tender-it's delicious. The salads and deserts are also excellent!
