Tello's Restaurant Review

: A Chelsea go-to spot for fine Italian since 1999, Tello's seems like it’s been around much longer. And that’s intentional: its turn-of-the-century décor is filled with antiques below the bare-boned open piping. Executive chef Alonso Tello serves simple and traditional Italian fare with fresh ingredients, such as bresaola (dried beef served over arugula and shaved Parmesan) and insalata di pesce for antipasti. Tradition runs deep as the diverse main courses are also old-time favorites: gnocchi with Gorgonzola, Fontina and Parmesan; grilled snapper with olives, tomatoes and basil; and shrimp in a spicy marinara sauce over fresh fettuccine.
