Cello's Restaurant Review: Cello's is a chef-owned restaurant removed from the hustle and bustle of the Valley's more touristy areas. It’s best described as an American bistro with Mediterranean influences. Start with the vertical crab napoleon, almost a meal in itself, with lump crab meat layered with avocado, red onion and green onion, tomato, cucumber and lime juice. Chicken caprese is a signature dish comprising a lightly breaded chicken breast topped with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil. Not often found on menus these days is liver and onions. Some would say it's an acquired taste, featuring sautéed veal liver, mashed potatoes, caramelized onions, apple wood-smoked pepper bacon and seasonal vegetables --- definitely a different take than your grandparents' version. The bar-only bistro selections are a good value, with numerous items priced at $10 or less. End your meal with the limoncello tiramisu that's slightly tart.
