Lionello was born in Rhodes (then a possession of Italy), to Calabrian parents, and grew up in Reggio Calabria. It began his career as a theatre actor, and is considered amongst the founders of Italian cabaret. In 1953 he entered the Musical Theatrical Company of RAI (Italian state TV) and the following year he debuted in television with Marziano Filippo, a boys' show. He had found success as an entertainer on Italian TV in the 1970s and 1980s.

Oreste Lionello for years made me a better actor than I was in fact. We met personally and he always seemed a very pleasant man.
