Lelli's is an excellent Italian restaurant that specializes in steaks. They have a several course meal option that is absolutely outstanding. Courses include fresh baked bread, antipasto, salad, minestrone soup (best I have ever had), spaghetti, the main entry, and desert. Their steak rivals any other restaurant's at a very reasonable price compared to other fine restaurants (i.e. Ruth's Chris,... More

The service was great and the food was fabulous. Sea bass was cooked to perfection. Filet melts in your mouth. Do the 6 course dinner. It is worth it. Nice atmosphere for business or a special night out.

The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere is great, however it is a bit pricy. The service was great though so overall a great dining experience.

My family and I dined here last night and it was wonderful. We always get the Chateaubriand with the 6 courses. The wine list has some great selections, the Caesar salad is excellent, a Caesar with actual flavor! What a concept!! Soup and salad were solid. The meat was perfectly prepared and delicious! Plenty of food for dinner and lunch... More

We went to Lelli's for a date night. The decor is more than a little dated. Be prepared, this is not a quick dinner, you will be there for some time. The steaks were outstanding. So was the service.

I came here as it is not too far from my hotel and was looking forward to a nice meal. The ambiance is nice and the service acceptable but it is incredibly expensive and the food is not up to what you pay. It is a total waste of money and I will never come back. By the way I... More

Best dining experience takes you back to a true old-fashioned Italian Eatery. We had exceptional service the food melts in your mouth and wallets a little pricey compared to your normal places compared to a top-shelf steakhouse it really isn't that bad. If you watch Groupon there's often some specials on there.

We had heard "good things" about Lelli's, but I guess that was when Clinton was President! Service as very slow, and I had to ask twice when the entree was coming. After two inquiries, we were told there was a party "on the other side" and that the kitchen was backed up. The decor was a bit stale, and gain... More

Had dinner at Lelli's on a quiet Saturday evening using a Groupon. We were really looking forward to a nice night out. Our service was excellent, but the food was a huge disappointment. The antipasto plate lacked oomph. The salad was generous and tasty with nice greens. The minestrone was bland with too much cream and also had no taste.... More
