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 when next in town.

We dined here one warm evening in May, the service was great, we dined on Pasta which was good, there was plenty of choice and they respected my shellfish allergy which can be a problem for some restaurants.

wanted a nice quiet place for dinner and came a cross Fellini's and we were so happy we did. There was a piano player in the next room that provided nice dinner background music. I had the Tortellini, with leeks, roasted red peppers and peas in a creamy parmesan, and they special prepared with out the sausage. great flavor and... More

This is one of the worst meals I have ever had. The service was not poor - nothing like that. The wine list is great and reasonably priced. It is the food itself. Just AWFUL. We ordered the arancini - just AWFUL. They were not only way too salty and over-cooked, but the cheese used was too strong and there... More

Dear Jules 996, this is the NEW owner, Jacie and I have taken back this restaurant from the previous owner of 1 year, because of the food and the poor management. I appreciate your feedback. Now let me invite you back to Fellini's #9 as I have hired a new head chef who will start next week. Our reopening is... More

We have eaten at Fellini's at least five times in the last two years. It had been about six months since our last visit, and I was taken there for my birthday dinner Wednesday night. With past experiences, the waitstaff has always been friendly, outgoing, and cheerful. Our waitress on this evening was sourly, making us feel like a hassle... More

Dear ShellyT792, This is Jacie, the previous owner of Fellini's #9, who unfortunately had sold the restaurant to a person who did not appreciate the history of the Fellini's #9 I had established. Anyway, she is gone and I am back. So, I invite you to return and enjoy the Fellini's #9 as it used to be. I have hired... More

After a day of wine tasting, we were hungry for a pizza. Fellini's was listed as a Charlottesville Top Ten for pizza. We drove downtown, parked several blocks away, and walked uphill. After we ordered drinks, we found out you can't get pizza until after 10:00pm! We stayed for dinner anyway and the food was pretty good...it just wasn't pizza.

Fellini's used to be an above middling italian joint with a sweet piano player tinkling the ivories. I was a fan, but the food was just ok. I can't afford just ok, so I haven't been back in a long time. Returned last week and had a serious gustatory shock: an enormous portion of unctuous,falling of the bone, slow-cooked beef... More

My husband and I went here to have dinner. First, it is difficult to get a parking spot close by and because you cannot turn right or left on the road where it is located, you have to drive around maybe 2 or 3 blocks to find a parking space. Also wanted to note that it is right by the... More

This place has transitioned recently and the new management has a number of similar dishes based on Italian cuisine. I just felt that it was not quite the same as before. Waitstaff seemed also to be impatient with us- and was never around when we need something. That was also different from the people that worked there before. Expect to... More

Food was tasty and ambience is nice. However we were in a small room next to a table of 12 (two of us) and the screaming and shouting by the clods at this table ruined our dinner.

Description
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 #9 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 #9 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.
