“nice, friendly, authentic ... and very good food”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

we visited the fellini today. we learnt that we should come not be fore 7.30 pm to get the warm meat and surprise ... in time everything was ready.

the restaurant is not in the major street of leblon (but closeby 100 mtr.), the people there are you and me from the neighbarhood, grandma, grandpa, daughter, students etc. very nice.

the restaurant is a kilo restaurant, they offer a broad variety of typical brazilian food of good to VERY GOOD quality. the staff is friendly and helpful; detecting you as alien (not brazilian) some people talk with you in clear english.

>>> congratulations; this restaurant is really worth to be a tripadvisor winner (of 2012).

“Easy, quick and delicious”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Fellini's an easy pitstop if you're out and about and fancy a bite to eat that's healthy, tasty and fresh. It's one of the better comida a kilo restaurants in Zona Sul.
