Fanelli’s still is one of the best Italian restaurants that I have come across anywhere. It is a local gem and has earned the distinguished membership into the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame.

From the minute we walked in until we left we were treated like family. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food and Mrs. Finelli’s desserts were beyond amazing! Even on a Tuesday evening it was booming with customers all with smiles. Thank you Finelli’s...More
