Always delicious. I’m also impressed at the presentation as well. For as busy as the kitchen is, they always take time to make entrees appear striking and special. Love Fellini

First visit... Will be back! Maybe for next meal. Veal chop and homemade pasta were excellent. Restaurant is a little tight and energetic, but fine. Large portions, took home tomorrow's lunch.

The food was outstanding . We sat near the kitchen so it was loud. (Not a good idea if there are others tables available.) the Bolognese sauce was fabulous! Never realized meat sauce could be that delicious. Calamari salad was also wonderful. Service was excellent.

Our first time here and we found the food fantastic, the service was excellent also. We will definitely be back again. We unfortunately did not have any dessert, we were too full from the meal, our appetizer was The Capreese with fresh Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella with a Sweet Balsamic drizzle which was superb ! Yummy makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Never been treated so rudely in my life! The waitress was ok, but the host (manager? owner?) kept giving me dirty looks and finally approached my girlfriend and I, telling us that we were very rude to not leave, giving our table to another couple that did NOT have reservations. We arrived at 5:10, left at 7:15. UNBELIEVABLE!
Will NEVER go back!

What a waste of $60!!! This place use to be good years ago when it first opened but not now. First of all, the owner/host is MISERABLE!! He barely picked his head up when we walked in the front door. There was no warm welcome. He THREW our menus on our table and rushed back to his 'post' at the front door. Second....the food STUNK. I had "eggplant parm". It was AWFUL!!! This place is great if you don't know what good food tastes like. Never again! Off the list!!!

Simple, unassuming strip mall location. The food is delicious. We basically licked our plates. Fried calamari was heavenly. Chicken Milanese was amazing. The menu is very extensive, everything Italian you’ve ever heard of is in the menu, so we’re definitely coming back to try more of their dishes.

Food is excellent and priced well. Wait staff is very attentive and eager to please. 5 stars for both of those points. Not so for the following. Restaurant is small. I had made reservations for 5. The table waiting for us was a table which would accommodate 4 comfortably but not 5. The person who drew the short straw had to sit at the end of the table which was very uncomfortable for them and made table space tight. There was a table which would accommodate 6 in the center of the restaurant. We asked to move but were told that table was reserved. It remained unocccupied the entire time we were there. The manager/owner is very rude. Two guests ordered coffee and desert. The manager/owner repeatedly came over and looked at our table to see if we were finished. When the coffee and desert were consumed he asked us to give up the table. I don't think I would return despite the food being very good.

We had a wonderful dinner at Fellini’s. The portions are large and a good value. We have been there twice in the last month and both dinners were outstanding. Service was also excellent.

The food is superb, but I would suggest less cream sauce as a topping for the large number of pasta dishes, especially for the carbonara, on which cream is not used. I have been to Rome many times including recently. I had carbonara three times on this recent visit, each time better than the other, and none with cream. The service was deplorable; having to wait an hour and a quarter for getting your dinner served is outrageous. Consequently, I would not recommend Fellini, in Newtown Square, at least on a Friday or a Saturday.
