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

Local institution that was under different ownership for a bit and, well, that didn't work. So back under previous ownership and everything is cool again. When we were there, big group was there doing an F Scott Fitzgerald themed dinner and that gets the feel...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

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...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...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.
