While Tello’s offers the beauty of dining in a small townhouse setting this is where the joy ends. From beginning to end our experience was one of disappointment. First, the table offered (the only small table available) sat at the top of the basement stairs, not actually near the stairs but precariously set so that when seated less than one foot remained between the chair leg the steep staircase leading down to the musty wet smelling cellar. Anyone with a larger size or a person with one drink to many would have been fair game for a dangerous tumble. Our dinner was acceptable but void of thought, calamari-overcooked, Veal Pocola with too many competing flavors creating a war of senses to the taste. And while our waiter was entertaining, he made the unspeakable mistake of loudly pronouncing the names of each patron who paid by credit card during his thanks, throwing out any right to privacy of the patron. But worst of all was the “entertainment” from our dining neighbors. Seated at a table facing the rear portion of the dinning room and the single walkway to and from the rear tables, kitchen and washrooms, our neighbors proceeded to offer a scene worthy of the “Gentleman’s Club” or “Hustlers, not only were the intimacies apparent but they were extreme and constant, causing all around to avert their eyes and definitely interfering with the enjoyment of the meal, finally ending with nearly 40 minutes of the female on the lap of her companion “necking” so severely that their table moved into the narrow walkway, finally prompting the waiter to ask them to move their table back. Management needs to change, staff need to be retrained, chefs need to alter the menu and go back to basics, the restaurant rear stairs need to be enclosed and a door placed at the top (or the back table removed) and management need to be in tune with their patrons needs for an atmosphere conducive to dining not a live porno show—for shame-not recommended.
