Even in the time of Coronavirus low patronage there was what seemed to be a skeleton wait staff at the restaurant and we waited and waited for service during our meal.

I ordered the Alfredo with shrimp and specifically asked for the Alfredo sauce to be thick but it came out with the consistency of water. I sent the dish back with the request for thick sauce - the plate was returned with no sauce! They must have just poured off the watery and sent it back out. Clearly a kitchen that does not care what the customer wants. A shame because my wife's Veal Marsala was excellent - too bad we will not be returning.

one of my pet peeves is dining with previous course dishes still on the table. our waitress was exceptional at keeping the area clean so that we could enjoy our meal

Great food- the Grilled Artichokes are fabulous, a must try. I first came across this restaurant searching on the Open Table website, and knew I would return. It’s a BYOB, which makes it even more attractive. I heartily recommend it.

Fellin's is my go-to place for good, straight-up Italian food (vs "fou-fou Italian" - of which I'm not a fan). Not only is the food always good, but the service is excellent, and I never feel rushed. And Manny, Fellini's personable owner, stops by to make sure everything's good.

It was great food, very noisy, very busy, and the service was mediocre. We had to ask for wine glasses from the maitre’d and we were the only people in the restaurant when we arrived.

Had reservation for 8 people. Walked in and told host of my reservation and he simply motioned with his head and his hand and said “it’s over there”. Went to table and they were so close to the wall we had to move them out some. When all of our party got there we were so cramped together one of our people asked the host if they could add another single table to our tables. He asked why do you have more people coming? When we told him no and it was too cramped he and a waiter begrudgingly came over and moved the table. I didn’t miss the fact that they were rolling their eyes at each other. Once done they both returned to the host station very close to us and proceeded to talk about us in an unkind way. Additionally there were flowers on the tables in small vases. Flowers were 80 percent dead. Took them off the table while we dined. I had Shrimp scampi over linguini. There were 5 very small shrimps and about a pound of pasta! While the dish was tasty it was disappointing due to the shrimp factor. Got a Caesar salad with dressing on the side. Terrible dressing! It was loaded with mustard which I never knew was an ingredient in Caesar salad. So salad was a huge disappointment! I have to say, I am done with Fellini Cafe for quite a while.

We went for a late lunch and found the menu to be very varied and interesting. The salmon salad was outstanding; the veal dishes were very good, but one veal was a trifle tough and there was a bit too much thin sauce. Overall, it is excellent value.
The fried calamari appetizer was very very good. It had clearly been made to order. It would be nice if they varied the sauce for the calamari as it was not very interesting. The calamari themselves were done perfectly.

Love to go to Fellini’s as it is BYOB, local, food is consistently good and service is superior. Party of six and all enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. Our waitress was friendly and despite the crowd on a Saturday night, things moved along well.

I’ve been to Fellini’s several times and the food is always great. Generous portions, well prepared and very delicious. Seating isn’t too close, so noise level is low. The only draw back is what seems to be an inexperienced wait staff. They are personable enough but they do make mistakes. But all in all I would highly recommend this fine restaurant.

The food and the service are always very very good. I would recommend cleaning the walls, it looks like they have the spray that they use to clean the tables gets on the walls. It is unappetizing. I am a clean freak and I think wherever food is served, the environment should be pristinely clean. The customers spend a lot of money to eat out . They deserve the best.

I have been eating at Fellini's for many years, and it had to happen at some point. I had my first bad meal . I ordered the chicken gorgonzola, which I have had many times before and loved. This time, the chicken was very chewy and the sauce tasted like there was no gorgonzola in it at all. I am thinking that the kitchen mistakenly put a plain cream sauce on it. Very disappointing.
I also thought that the special salad (spinach with fruit and gorgonzola) was a bit over-priced at $18.00. There wasn't much fruit in it.

First time dining at West Chester location, fantastic experience. The food is wonderful, the portions as huge as one comes to expect. The service is personal and attentive. Where else can you order an appetizer of grilled calamari that comes as a complete salad with more than enough calamari, lettuce, toasted bread for the entire table? And delicious at that. But it is not just the value — it is the fact you have so much difficulty choosing the main course because there are 25 other dishes you want to sample. It is the fact the food is so fresh and delectable that you savor every bite before you are full and forced to take home a well filled container to enjoy on another occasion. It is the fact that they make everything so easy and accommodate the diner throughout. Obviously very impressed and wish this location was closer to home.
