“Delicious Italian Food”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We were there with a party of 9 & everybody said their meal was delicious. Our meals included pizza, pasta and sandwiches. I must agree with one other review that the photos in the bathrooms are a little risque! Of course, I was only in the women's but the men i my party who used the restroom came back with some interesting reports. The restaurant is close to the Virginia Zoo, so it's convenient if you're looking for a nice meal before or after visiting the Zoo.

“What's Not To Love”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Fellini's has been a local mainstay for many years and it never fails to deliver. Great food, welcoming atmosphere and fantastic servers make this a great place to visit. The pizzas are absolutely the best.

“Restaurant Inappropriate for Children of Any Age”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I went to Fellini's for the first time last night with my wife, father and nice year old twins. I was disgusted to find incredibly erotic and potentially pornographic photographs of naked women in erotic poses in the mens room. One featured what looked to be an under age teenager with her shirt off stroking a cat in her lap. I don't consider myself a conservative, but these images were completely inappropriate for a 9 year old boy. If they were in a bar that was not expected to have young children, that would be one thing. But these were completely out of what would be considered tasteful for a family restaurant. My children were very embarrassed and ran out of the bathroom. I confronted the owner and she retorted that these might be images that one might find in the Chrysler Museum. I responded that one has the choice to take your children to an erotic exhibit at the Chrysler because you know what you are getting into. Not so the bathroom at a restaurant. Also, if they were so artistic, why did she hide them in the bathroom instead of the front of the house? I asked her if she would share these images with her grandchildren and she did not respond. I would strongly urge not frequenting this restaurant with children, or at all due to the way she is exposing other peoples children to images they are too young to see. My wife reported that there were similarly erotic images in the women's room, but as is the double standard, they did not show full frontal nudity of men. But they were still inappropriate for young girls.

“Ok..We go there because few other choices”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

My tennis team goes to Fellini's because it seems there are so few places near the ODU area that has seating to accommodate 6+ people. Service was much better/faster than my visit last year. We got there around 6:30 which is a better time (than 8). However, I have one complaint I noticed on the menu there is no side salad price for a pizza. Other entrees you could add a side salad for $1.99. I asked the server if they could do a side salad with the pizza. She said yes that was not a problem. Three of us ordered side salads. When she brought the bill she charged us $5 for the salad. I reminded her that I asked her when I ordered about the side salad, and she now said there was no side salad for pizza and made all three of us pay full price.

I had pizza, a salad, and two glasses of wine, water with tax and tip $40 for just me.

The pizza was very good mine was Greek with goat cheese and olives. The salad was mediocre as if prepared ahead of time and kept cold ( not a $5 salad).
The service was much better but I think we had a smaller party and came to the restaurant earlier.

“You can always count on Fellini's”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Fast service and good food can't be beat - and the prices are reasonable. I like the fact that they gladly let you substitute. My soup was really tasty (although a bit salty), the pasta was yummy, (but a bit over baked) and the garlic bread was decent (but it could have been toasted more). All in all, the flavors were good, but the final execution could have been tweaked for better results.
