After waiting for 50 minutes @ another place, we left and drove stumbling on Fellini's. Found a tough to find parking space and went inside. Nothing special in decor but the aromas drew you in. We had a 1/2 order of pasta bolognese and the special of the night tortellini with pork & peas in a creamy sauce. Both were... More

Looked for someplace different for dinner on a Saturday night with our daughters. One had heard of this place so decided to try it. Great location, very nice inside and the food was delicious. All four of us very happy with our dinners. Surprised that it wasn't more crowded and hope that's because we went pretty early (5:30pm) because this... More

We stopped for drinks after dinner and heard great jazz music while we sat at the bar. We didn't have any food, but enjoyed a nice, local brew and glass of wine. Great for the jazz!

Eclectic entertainment (though always appropriate,) and the food is a delight. Quaint atmosphere, and often lively, late on the weekends

I want to like it given it's a hometown restaurant with a lot of history, but the truth is, the food is quite mediocre. If it were a little less expensive... We went there last night for Restaurant Week, which is a great cause for a local charity. When its restaurant week you get 3 courses and you choose each... More

Stopped in here late on a Friday night to have a few drinks with friends. Great atmosphere, the live music was excellent. Bar service was a little slow, due just to how busy the venue was. I haven't eaten here, would like to try it when next in town.

We dined here one warm evening in May, the service was great, we dined on Pasta which was good, there was plenty of choice and they respected my shellfish allergy which can be a problem for some restaurants.

I had the Tortellini, with leeks, roasted red peppers and peas in a creamy parmesan, and they special prepared with out the sausage. great flavor and... More

This is one of the worst meals I have ever had. The service was not poor - nothing like that. The wine list is great and reasonably priced. It is the food itself. Just AWFUL. We ordered the arancini - just AWFUL. They were not only way too salty and over-cooked, but the cheese used was too strong and there... More

Dear Jules 996, this is the NEW owner, Jacie and I have taken back this restaurant from the previous owner of 1 year, because of the food and the poor management. I appreciate your feedback. Now let me invite you back to Fellini's #9 as I have hired a new head chef who will start next week. Our reopening is... More

We have eaten at Fellini's at least five times in the last two years. It had been about six months since our last visit, and I was taken there for my birthday dinner Wednesday night. With past experiences, the waitstaff has always been friendly, outgoing, and cheerful. Our waitress on this evening was sourly, making us feel like a hassle... More

Dear ShellyT792, This is Jacie, the previous owner of Fellini's #9, who unfortunately had sold the restaurant to a person who did not appreciate the history of the Fellini's #9 I had established. Anyway, she is gone and I am back. So, I invite you to return and enjoy the Fellini's #9 as it used to be. I have hired... More

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.
