Does Not Honor Reservations

I wish I could give this place zero stars, as I was unable to dine here and offered zero options. My wife and I placed reservations on Opentable.com here for our Valentine's Day dinner at 6p 2 weeks in advance. I received a confirmation email from Opentable.com within minutes.

We apologize for the unfortunate situation you (and a number of other diners) experienced with us on Valentine's Day. Often times, we don't accept reservations on holidays, as this actually will limit seating more than it will open it. Our goal is to provide as many customers with all we have to offer and we feel allowing reservations on major... More

Fellini's in Newtown Square is as good as it gets. I am married to a Sicilian who does most of the cooking in our house and he raves about the food here. We are always well cared for by Patricio, the manager and never hesitate to bring friends even though we are driving from New Jersey. We have enjoyed everything... More

We had dinner here before a movie at Edgemont. Typical Italian fare - nothing great. Location is in a strip mall in Newtown Square across from the Acme. Service was good, it's BYOB (no corkage fee), food is OK but we are spoiled by the great Italian restaurants in South Philly. This does not compare. Artichoke appetizer with mozzarella was... More

We go to Fellini Cafe every year on Christmas Eve for the 7 fishes dinner and hit it at least 12 other times a year. Manny the owner treats us like we are old friends! The service is always wonderful and the food is always excellent. Keep in mind it is BYOB so bring some wine and you will have... More

Will not be going back to this restaurant. The manager is the rudest person and has no skills when dealing with customers. He made us feel very uncomfortable when we arrived and asked for a booth. He said his booths were for 3 or more people only. But ironically after we were seated, he sat a couple (2) in one... More

Had the worst experience because of the manager. He did not want to seat us in a booth even though there were only three tables occupied in the restaurant when we arrived early on a Saturday night. After some discussion and a lot of attitude from him he gave us one of the three empty booths. Our dinners were served... More

You don't have to be Italian to enjoy Fellini's. The food there is excellent. We eat there often, sometimes alone other times with friends.

Hmm... sounds cute, I thought. But it's in the middle of a shopping center. It's probably mediocre at best. But lo and behold, it's top rated on this website, and it didn't disappoint. Probably the best fried calamari I've ever had. Friendly waitress. Fancy and homey at the same time. Wish I lived in the area so I could try... More
