Busy spot, for sure, but the staff was extremely polite and we didn't feel rushed ! Food was terrific and their prices are fabulous for the amount of food you get!
It was a little noisy, but it's Saturday night! I was happy to be out!
Will definitely be going back!

If it weren’t for the fact that we’re in a pandemic still it would’ve been a 5/5 review. This is a small restaurant so the fact that every table was filled made my boyfriend and I a little nervous since we were so close to other customers. Otherwise great food and service!

We dined at Fellini Cafe as a party of six and really enjoyed the food... Six clean plates! Our server was very friendly and attentive. We have dined here as family a number of times and everyone enjoys the overall meal when we go. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The food is delicious and the staff is great! We will be back!!

I was at Fellini's with my two sisters on a Saturday afternoon for a birthday luncheon. I am not a big eater but the luncheon version of the entree I ordered was more than enough for me. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. What more is there to say.

We tried Fellini for the first time this past weekend and will happily say we will be back! Serving size is great for the price, you’ll probably leave with leftovers! Service was prompt and everyone was delightful! They also had a TON of to go orders, so if you are still weary about dining in takeout is a great option.

Which had a reservation and waited a half hour for a seat. The restaurant is extremely small and extremely loud. We ordered basic pasta dishes and food was cold and mediocre. Service was also subpar. There are many restaurants in the area. This is one for you to skip. Finally, we did not feel welcome to the restaurant by the owner. He is extremely rude.

Food was good but service really hurts the place. Waitress brought wrong order, never took a drink order then didn't come back. You could tell she was either new or just inexperienced. There were only 4 other tables to be served. A lot of take out orders.

Kinda expensive for the food but large portions

I forgot how great the food is here. We had the breaded calamari, and I had the chicken scaloppini. The calamari was perfect, and the sauce that came with it was fatastic.
the chicken scaloppini was a last minute choice, but the chicken was cooked perfectly, the veggies were perfect, and there was enough for lunch the next day.

Two Coins in this Italian Fountain - Fellini’s is a fine local BYOB. The food is tasty. The portions are large. The prices are very reasonable. Our experience this visit fell just one coin short of what it should be. Our reservation was for 6:30, which is in the early half of the dinner window. Our waitress, Evie, was very attentive and tried to get everything "just right." She explained to us that she was new and just learning the menu. She was assisted by another waitress and a bus boy. She opened our wine and served warm bread and olive oil with cheese and herbs for dipping. Ice water was brought immediately by the bus boy. As we placed our order, the manager/owner/boss hovered over her and told her they were out of the appetizer my wife ordered, the grilled calamari. They did have the salad with calamari and told us it was large enough to share. It was excellent! My wife ordered the Penne Putanesca (capers, olives, anchovies, hot pepper flakes, garlic marinara sauce) for her entree, while I chose the Rigatoni con Salsicce (Rigatoni with sausage and mushrooms). Both meals were tasty and our waitress seemed very happy that we were happy. My entree, however, was served simply warm, not piping hot, which is a particular turn-off for me. This was the kitchen's fault, not the waitress', as she brought it to the table as soon as it was up. As we looked over the dessert menu, the owner, who was at the register immediately adjacent to our booth, told us there was no espresso or cappuccino because they were closed several months due to the Pandemic, yet the Lavazza company still expected him to pay $200 per month for the coffee service they did not use, and he was fighting them. We didn’t need to know all that! A simple “not available tonight” would have been more professional. They were good enough that we will return and see if they can earn that third coin in the fountain.

Very small restaurant with a very large menu. BYOB - always a plus! The grilled octopus was the only thing we ordered that I wouldn't recommend (we usually get fried, but were trying to be a little healthier - tough and fishy). Otherwise, good warm bread delivered to table by the AMAZING waitress (only waitress in the place and she rocked it!). They substitute sauce and ingredients as requested - no issue with anything we asked. Creamy pesto was delicious, scampi was tasty, portions were ample (all 3 women had leftovers). Desserts were nice - not huge but shareable (portion size was perfect). Since they are in a strip mall, there is no outdoor dining. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I have eaten here many times and loved it. This evening we were dinning with friends. I ordered the Tagliatelle with smoked salmon (my usual). What I got was bad salmon. I informed the waitress and expected the meal to be removed from my bill. It was not.

Also I felt that we were being rushed out of the restaurant. I do not see these friends often as like to make an evening of good food and conversation.

Not Fellini's best night.

I thought the meal I had two weeks before at the one in West Chester was really great but this was outstanding it actually she surpassed whatever I expected. The manager could not have been nicer and went out of his way to try to accommodate us. But certainly use it again and recommend it. Del McKelvey

Awesome service and food. Save money by bringing your own bottle, which is a good thing. It's just a shame the place isn't bigger so more people could enjoy!

Very pleasant and nice waitstaff. Food was good but both entrees were too salty and the caesar salad was unremarkable. Glad they have been able to stay in business during the Pandemic.
