Everything was WONDERFUL! But the ambiance music was a bit crazy for the fine dining experience. Didn’t quite match up and was a bit chaotic with the sophisticated chill vibe they are going for.

We haven't been to Fellini very often but the food on both occasions was very good and the servings were generous. On our visit on Saturday evening, ONLY ONE of the employees was wearing a mask. Please ask for Abraham on your next trip there. We very much appreciated his concern and mask wearing.

The food was flavorful, but the overall environment made us feel hurried and rushed. Our 7:30pm Resi & the lack of attention, especially by the Mgr/owner( I assume it was him). We had no idea idea they closed & I mean closed at 9pm. We were pushed out so to speak and by the time we got to our cars to exchange Xmas gifts the place was dark and the staff/MGR driving away. It was very uncomfortable & I didn't care for not being appreciated, especially in the last two years of tough times in the food business. You NEED your customers and you better make them feel comfortable & wanted, even if you need to stay open little longer or handle it in a better way.

Excellent Food in every category! Excellent service and staff !! Loved the BYOB option. Loved that it was a quiet atmosphere where we could easily have a conversation without be drowned out by music or large waiting crowds. The dining room was nicely decorated. This was our first visit and we definitely be going back and will recommend to friends and family. Thank you Fellini's for a wonderful meal and evening.

We finished our tour at the local Gardens and opened up opentable and found Fellini. It was a good find. It is a BYOB so be prepared for that. We knew the food was going to be good when we saw the number of orders sitting on the counter for take out. Food was excellent and we brought some home actually.
I think the ambiance could be better with some softer lighting in the dining area. Its very bright and feels more like a pizza parlor than a Italian Bistro. Some softer lighting would help.
Service was good with all the staff delivering, clearing, asking us if we needed something.
All in all it was a good experience. Don't know if I'll be in that area again but I was not disappointed. For a good solid dining experience with GREAT food. Go for it.

The food was excellent and portions generous. Appetizers and salads nicely presented. We had the spaghetti ala Norma, the veal parmigiana, and a spaghetti with shrimp. All of us loved our dinners. The marinara was exceptional. Our only negative is the atmosphere. Just changing out or dimming the lights would help. Even so, I would not hesitate to go for a good meal!

Always get the fish special that comes with lots of veges, so I get the side of angel hair pasta. I just enjoyed last nights leftovers for lunch and it was just as good!

Great place! This was the first time we went there and we loved it...we will be back with friends. The food was excellent. We enjoyed apps, entrees and desserts. It was BYOB which we didn't know but the Giant had wine 2 minutes away so all worked out well.

Overall, everything was very nice. Food was delicious. I ordered grilled artichoke as appetizer; however, prosuette was difficult to eat. My risotto dish was delicious (with scallops, bacon and spinach).
Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of food to take home. We had a very nice dinner with friends.

Fellini’s was a bit of a train wreck on this particular evening. PLEASE teach your servers how to handle wine! We brought an expensive ($60+) bottle of an Italian Brunello to enjoy with our dinner. The waiter took it somewhere in the back to open and in the process, he broke the cork and ended up with the cork in the bottle. Instead of filtering the wine into a glass decanter, he poured it into a metal water pitcher!! All of this was done out of our sight. He finally showed up at the table with the pitcher and I thought he was there to fill our water glasses but no! It was our “bottle” of wine! I was flabbergasted!! I asked for a glass decanter so he disappeared again and 10 minutes later he had our wine, which had been through several pourings already and presented it to us in a water carafe. WTH!! First off - the wine should be opened at the table in front of your patron.

Sadly, the food was off the mark as well. Our arugula salad was swimming in so much dressing I couldn’t enjoy it. Our entrees were just okay - didn’t even bother taking home the leftovers. One last thing - it is so loud in this restaurant. You need to shout to be heard by the person sitting across from you and as a result, everyone ends up shouting. Not a pleasant way to dine.

Fellini's is a great place to eat! The food is wonderful, the waitstaff generally quick an attentive, Especially Brooke! We always go early and there is not a very long wait for your meal. Also, they've got the tables pretty spaced out. ALSO its a BYOB and we love that.
