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.

Good food/nice atmosphere with live piano, but expensive for the small portions and rude service. They told us false information and cheated us of our money. My boyfriend booked this restaurant for us and my friends for my birthday. It was our first time, and we were told on the phone earlier and by one waiter in person that I... More

The owner of Fellini's does a stellar job of showcasing the great musical talent in the area. A close friend plays there on a regular basis, and I love to go hear him and the other superb players that he plays with. I must make a disclaimer here.....I am a foodie and tend too be a bit demanding and critical... More

Great food and quaint new industrial feel. I only gave 4 stars as I thought portions of the entrees served were a little smaller than expected for price. But overall a nice meal. Reservations are suggested but can walk in and get table in bar area with out one. Service was very good and live music entertaining.

Weeknight dinner for eight. No booze, just wanted good meal before 8 pm curtain time. Made reservations, seated at 6 pm. Seated promptly, took about 20 minutes for server to take simple orders. The food was just OK, roast pork and chicken piccata were enjoyed by three of us. Lobster ravioli was gummy and under seasoned; didn't find lobster/crab, must... More

I've always wanted to eat here. Usually at an Italian place I don't know, I go for a traditional dish, so I chose the Veal Francisco, their take on Scallopini. Very filling but I was in the mood to eat. My spouse tried the spaghetti and meatballs, and had plenty for lunch the next day. Quantity does not equal quality;... More

We ate at Fellini's on Thursday. It just so happened that Charlottesville had torrential rain that night. We walked from the parking deck and arrived completely drenched. That was not a problem for the staff. We were greeted and seated immediately. The restaurant has a good atmosphere-exposed brick with some industrial touches. They also had a jazz trio playing.

We were here only for drinks and greatly enjoyed the quaint, cozy atmosphere and the live piano music. The bartender was pleasant and we would love to go back and try their food.
