“Order the Fellini surprise salad”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Visited multiple times and by far the best deal is the Fellini surprise salad. They pack more ingredients into this ( I don't think you could buy the ingredients at the store for the same price ) than you can imagine. They even will make a seafood only version for me on request ( I don't eat meat). Have had a pasta dish here and there and rate those average. I would suggest they serve olive oil with the bread rather than pure packaged butter. Great that it is BYOB. Restaurant is small so it is hard to get a table on popular nights.

“So poor”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

People eat here because it's cheap and they do a volume business so they don't care about their customers.

The worst dining experience ever - owner doesn't care about customer service and people are willing to accept it.

“AWFUL experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

AWFUL experience!! I don't even know where to start...my group of friends and I decided to try Fellini's for 2 of our friend's birthday dinner. We were seated on time (we had a 6:45 reservation), other than that everything else was a disaster. When we went to order we were told everyone has to order their own entree, we had hoped to share a few different dishes but quickly learned "thats not allowed"..a couple of us ordered salads and when the salads were brought out so were the entrees! As soon as we finished our dinner we were given dessert menus. We decided to wait a little before ordering dessert since we had just been bombarded with our salads and main course, we wanted to let our food digest a little! When we told our waiter we wanted to just, he told us we "had to order dessert then or leave, because they needed our table"..we hadn't even been there for 45 minutes!! We felt so rushed and completely turned off so we asked for our bill. On our way out we decided to approach the owner, just to let him know how we had been treated and how disappointed we were with the service. He pretty much told us that he didn't care. What a disgrace!! With so many other byobs in the area, he should have appreciated the business...not only did he lose the business of 7 women, but not to mention all of our family and friends we have been told about what happened.

Reviewed June 22, 2012

Very friendly service and owner, felt very welcome, nice decoration and interior. The food was good, but not fantastic - less Italian than expected. Good value and overall very nice experience

“Unassuming gem”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Excellent food and service was a positive. Storefront location is a detriment.
