This is really a charming neighborhood restaurant with excellent flavors and superb service. I loved the piano music. Our server was very attentive and they vary their menu so we had fresh Fall flavors like the Butternutt Squash Ravioli. Highly recommend this place.

Excellent dinner, wanted Italian and this place did not disappoint. My husband had the fish special which he cleaned his plate. I had the Rigatoni dish, a bit spicy but delicious. Our waiter was very helpful and nice. Not far from the Downtown market.

Charlottesville restaurants are very crowded so we were looking for something off the 29 corridor. Using Trip Advisor my husband identified Fellini's as a potential spot to have dinner. They had room and the service could not have been better. We got an Italian wine,...More

The Inn recommended Fellini's for dinner. We both had special's of the day. Sirloin steak for me and Halibut for my wife. Beautifully prepared and delicious. They had a pianist playing for a relaxing evening. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

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 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 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.
