The restaurant was on the small side and the tables are very close together and it was packed. Fingers crossed everyone has been vaccinated. Service was not great, though the food was.

While I understand the current environment has most places short staffed and I do take that into consideration. However Oct 10th are visit was less than pleasant. We had 6pm reservations. Upon arrival the owner seemed hurried and just looked around and pointed to a table for us to sit. Seconds later the waiter approached and asked if we needed menus. Really? Why wouldn't you come to the table and bring menus or for that matter why didn't the owner walk us to our seats with menus?

Soon after we were asked if we were ready to order. The waiter provided the special. I asked about a dish that was advertised on their FACEBOOK page Risotto with Scallops as it wasn't a special he read nor was it on the menu. He said he would ask and went back to kitchen. Returned with an affirmative. We all ordered our food which was delivered to our table in a reasonable time. Usually no matter what I get at this restaurant it is always good. This time the risotto with scallops was not good. Risotto was undercooked. After dinner we had coffee and dessert. I ordered a Cappuccino. When the waitress delivered my wife's coffee, she told me that they were out of Cappuccino. I was surprised and perplexed as to how one could be out of Cappuccino. When I questioned it, she then said the machine was broken. Hmmm did it just happen to break at that moment or was it broken all along and the waiter did not know it or did they just not feel up to making it because there was only two wait staff serving the busy restaurant. Additionally usually when seated they bring to your table bruschetta. This did not happen this time. Did they run out, did they stop providing, who knows.

Definitely not the service level or food quality they have always provided. When I relayed the experience to another family member, they too said service and food quality at this restaurant has changed.

I requested a special order and the owner was very accommodating.
Cheese ravioli with white clam sauce. Clams in the shell was place along the edges of the bowl plus extra clams in the sauce.
It was one of the best meals I had there and believe me I had many.

Many years ago, I went to this location of Felini Cafe and stopped going because Trattoria Guiseppe's opened. I miss that restaurant so I decided to try Felini Cafe again. It has almost the same menu and recipes in a much smaller storefront. We were greeted and seated promptly as we had a reservation through Open Table. Our friendly waitress wore a mask and was attentive. We were disappointed by our appetizer of grilled calamari because it was chewy and fishy. Fortunately, our dinners were very good. We had a tender veal picante and al dente spaghetti ala Norma. The restaurant was noisy but fortunately we had a table in the corner. We will go back again and we will definitely order take out.

Fellini Cafe is always a fine place to eat wonderful Italian food. The service is always friendly and pleasant. It does at time have a high noise level but let's face it the noise is high because it is a moderately sixed place with good food so people like it and people are noisy..

Don’t believe they use Open Table for reservations as they had no idea of my reservation. I use OT very often and this was not normal.

The food was great one of the best veal chop dinners I have had. Mussels were perfect . The calamari was a little tough but the toasted peppers made up for it. My wife’s sausage and pasta dish was delicious. The service was a 10. We’ll be back for sure

We have not had dinner at Fellini Cafe for a couple years.
Our dinner was outstanding!
Starting with the special salad > grilled artichokes, grilled shrimp, cheese and arugula.
Then the awesome appetizer > Fried Calamari Rings.
Dinner > Pasta with shrimp and crab. Eggplant with chicken.
Great prices and nice waitress service.
