"Have passed Telio countless times, but thought it was a local pizza dive. I was so wrong. It's a family-owned Greek restaurant with many options, even for a picky eater like me. True, it's not fancy, but if you want to unwind on your own with a book, talk w/a friend and actually be able to hear each other, dine outside on a warm evening, have home cooked, fresh food, be welcomed like a regular even on your first visit, and treated like a member of the family by the time you're done, give Telio a try. I had grilled Branzino w/horta--and ate every bite."

"Most of the food was OK, but there wasn't anything that stood out in a positive way. The stuffed grape leaves were good, but they tasted basically like stuffed grape leaves you buy in the grocery. The flaming cheese was terrible. There was too much alcohol on it, and they didn't burn it all off. The hummus was good, but the pita served with it was not. It would probably make for an OK lunch spot for someone who takes the time to get to know their menu, but I don't recommend it for a drop-by dinner. I liked that they had sidewalk seating."
