The restaurant is located in a building constructed in the mid-1800's. The building won the "Historic Preservation Award" in 2004. The windows contain glass from the original building. The floors are made of distressed pine recovered from Virginia barns and buildings. Also indoors you will find a delightful horseshoe shaped Copper Topped Bar, walls covered in brick and wormed-chestnut, stained glass partitions from the original building as well as a romantic fireplace, wooden tables and restored pine benches and chairs. We display art from local artisans for your enjoyment and our decor includes many original Fellini movie posters throughout the bar and restaurant. The atmosphere at Fellini's #9 is casual elegance - delicious meals, cozy atmosphere and romantic melodies from the piano in the bar. We have many Italian wines as well as a variety from Virginia and around the world. We have beers on tap and "Fellini's" cocktails. Be sure to include Fellini's #9 in your plans - before or after an event at the Paramount, a relaxing dinner after a beautiful hike at Monticello or for a romantic interlude to your hectic schedule.

The bartender was efficient and knew the specials for the day. The salad seemed very fresh and I had a glass of wine that was decent. The wine list suggested the list will expand soon which would not be unwelcome. The spaghetti was cooked perfectly and the sauce was very tasty; much better than average in my opinion. The sauce...

Restaurant is working hard to manage a renovation and stay open. Olive appetizer was bland with a low variety of tastes given the various olives served. Orchiette was flavourful and pasta was done perfectly. My dining partners had the portabello steak and chicken piccata. One of the chicken dishes had to go back because it was not cooked. Apologies were... More

If you get the Fellini reference, then you will enjoy #9. It is as much a bar as it is a restaurant, but the bar and restaurant sections of the establishment are well cordoned off from each other so as to make this a good family option in spite of the central location of the bar. The dishes on offer... More

We went to Fellini's tonight for the first time - and it won't be the last. The feeling of the place is very friendly, the food is excellent, and the service good. The price was very appropriate for the quality of food. Have been looking for good Italian and we have found it! Music was a bonus!!

Service here was great, along with the food. Celebrated a birthday there and they were so kind. We had a table in the back, and were able to enjoy the music, but also have conversations too.

Can't comment on the food as we were only in this place for a drink one evening but the craic was mighty and the whiskey was flowing. Great music and entertainment and we were made to feel at home! Would love to go back some day!

We love Fellini"s for its quaint Italian charm. The food is generally pretty good. On our most recent visit, the Prosecco on tap was below par, to our taste. A wine flight chosen by one diner was very disappointing, and our server responded by removing the most unpleasant glass. No effort was made to bring another choice, or even to... More
