    Fellini's food is always great. They were packed and serviced was slow but I've come to expect that, it's a small place always right corners but the food is worth it.

    Our first visit. The veal parmesan was excellent and came with pasta. The two chicken platters were good, but the chicken should have been more tender/less chewy. And oddly, pasta comes only with parmesan platters, not with most other dishes. Overall, very good.

    From what I hear, the food is worth the wait. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try any. I made a reservation, showed up 5 minutes early, and was promptly ignored by the staff. The restaurant is VERY crowded, with tables packed into every available space, less than 2 feet from one another. I went to get the hostess' attention after standing at the front for around 5 minutes. I went to the front counter, where the hostess was laughing and talking w another staff member. I had to excuse myself twice before being acknowledged by staff. I wasn't asked my name or reservation time, and the hostess said she'd be with me in a moment and went back to her conversation. After returning to the front entrance to wait for service, two other parties were seated and I still was not asked my name or given an approximate wait time. I would suggest that if the restaurant wants to run at max capacity so that they can make the most money per night, they should have a more organized, customer friendly process to deal with the high volume. We ended up leaving and heading to another local restaurant, where we enjoyed a much less congested, much quieter dinner.

    We all loved everything brought to the table. Three of us ordered the veal dishes, each different. They were all equally wonderful.my daughter ordered a chicken special which was superb. All was plentiful…enough to take home for lunch rye next day. Make sure to get a side of the broccoli rabe. And do not miss out on the conollis made to order!

    Everything was fantastic!! We had Veal Parm and the veal chop milanese, I'd recommend both! My husbad said it was the best veal he's had. The portions are huge and the food is made with love. Valerie our waitress was great and she couldn't believe we drove as far as we did. She introduced us to the owner & some ppl sitting next to us who are there every Friday. The whole atmosphere is family friendly. We will definitely go back!!
