I must say that the food in this restaurant was magnificent. The reviews posted here did not lead us astray. I would have given this five stars but they did not have sparkling Pellegrino water. They accommodated my wife's dietary needs. She ordered a chicken...More

Quaint little Italian restaurant. My husband found it when he looked on line for a piano bar when we were visiting Charlottesville. Food was fresh and outstanding, in my case the arugula salad and Bolognese - both absolutely delicious! I wished I had this bar...More

First, the people who work here--from the owner to the staff--are wonderful. Second, they always have great music. Third, good prosecco on draft! Most important -- the food. So delicious. On this night, duck, veal, and pork (three different entrees, three people). All perfect. We...More

The good food and nice ambiance was countered by the discovery of a shard of metal in the vegetable lasagna, inattentive server, and incorrect charges on our bill. The reaction to our reporting metal in the food was way too nonchalant. Ordered wine and was...More

We found this charming restaurant right off the Historic Mall. We decided to go in as they had a musician playing romantic songs on his electric guitar. We were so lucky to have walked in as this was simply the most delicious dinner we had...More

Very comfortable bar for a quiet conversation in the afternoon with attentive and friendly bartender. After dinner elsewhere, a great place for music and after dinner drinks!

Wonderful Italian restaurant on the mall in downtown C'ville. We ate there 9 years ago and returned to find the same wonderful food and service. Past cooked to perfection. Good calamari. We will return!

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...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 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.
