Cello Ristorante & Bar is the culinary home to traditional Northern Italian flavors with an exotic Mediterranean flair, matched with local delight in Paso Robles. The upscale dining experience lives within Allegretto Vineyard Resort by Ayres in picturesque Paso Robles wine country. It is there that you will find Executive Chef Eric Olson whose specialty is a Mediterranean menu locally grown. Personalized with seasonal ingredients for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even small bites throughout the day at Cello’s bar. The local gardens and vineyards in addition to exquisite tastes from Olson’s own world travel have inspired the menu.
Cello embraces the intrinsic connection between delicious, handcrafted cuisine, the hands of those who have grown it, and the faces of those who enjoy it. A true culture of joy through local food: “We celebrate every farmer, rancher, fisherman, chef, and server who makes your dish possible.”
The breakfast menu features classic items, such as buttermilk pancakes, waffles, and French toast. Yet, the well-experienced chefs take some creative liberties to also offer specialty items, including duck hash with Cal-Poly quail eggs, Central Coast relleno, huevos rancheros, and a smoked salmon omelet.
For lunch, guests can indulge in superb salads topped with scallops, steak, or other specialized ingredients in addition to a number of different sandwiches and burgers. A few of these tantalizing lunch items include a chicken pesto burger, black bean burger, a classic Reuben, and a turkey burger. Attentive to different pallets, Cello Ristorante also serves irresistible pasta dishes such as Italian sausage ravioli or chicken scaloppini.
Finally, after a day of eventful wine tasting or engagement in another Paso Robles scenic activity, look no further than Cello’s satisfying and delightful dinner menu. Guests can enjoy many varieties of sustainably caught seafood, steaks, and wood-fired flatbreads.
Of course, a wine country dining experience can only be complimented with fine reds and whites from top, local vineyards; Allegretto Vineyard’s private label included! Stop by for cocktails, pair your pure wine with wonderful Mediterranean dishes, and top it all off with a scrumptious dessert.
Cello Ristorante pairs nicely with our resort’s “allegretto” theme, which is a musical passage that ought to be played at a fairly quicker tempo yet not as fast as others. Its musical tone offers audiences a light and graceful listen, just as Paso Robles’ Allegretto Vineyard Resort and accompanying Cello Ristorante & Bar do. The entire property features Italian-style architecture, comfortable lodging, natural finishes, and fine artwork.
Make a reservation to experience the handcrafted, Northern Italian and Mediterranean-themed selections of Paso Robles’ local splendor.
