Fellini’s was a bit of a train wreck on this particular evening. PLEASE teach your servers how to handle wine! We brought an expensive ($60+) bottle of an Italian Brunello to enjoy with our dinner. The waiter took it somewhere in the back to open and in the process, he broke the cork and ended up with the cork in the bottle. Instead of filtering the wine into a glass decanter, he poured it into a metal water pitcher!! All of this was done out of our sight. He finally showed up at the table with the pitcher and I thought he was there to fill our water glasses but no! It was our “bottle” of wine! I was flabbergasted!! I asked for a glass decanter so he disappeared again and 10 minutes later he had our wine, which had been through several pourings already and presented it to us in a water carafe. WTH!! First off - the wine should be opened at the table in front of your patron.

Sadly, the food was off the mark as well. Our arugula salad was swimming in so much dressing I couldn’t enjoy it. Our entrees were just okay - didn’t even bother taking home the leftovers. One last thing - it is so loud in this restaurant. You need to shout to be heard by the person sitting across from you and as a result, everyone ends up shouting. Not a pleasant way to dine.

Our young waitress was most pleasant. A full time student, she impressed as being far beyond her years. This restaurant never disappoints.

Fellini's is a great place to eat! The food is wonderful, the waitstaff generally quick an attentive, Especially Brooke! We always go early and there is not a very long wait for your meal. Also, they've got the tables pretty spaced out. ALSO its a BYOB and we love that.

Generally our food is good but my wedding soup was luke warm it didn’t even wilt the spinach. Meatballs had no flavor. Salad was so so. Calamari which we love could not be eaten… too big & chewy. We didn’t say anything because we are not complainers & we were with friends so didn’t want to be Debbie Downer. Usually your restaurant & food is good but that wasn’t our experience last night.

We love Fellini’s and go there often. The food is always delicious. Our meal arrived quickly. It’s apparent they were understaffed. We could never get the attention of our server. The busboy was more attentive! Once we asked for our check, we waited 20 minutes for him to bring it to our table.

Food was very good, as always. On the other hand, service was provided mainly by inexperienced waiters, uninformed about the dishes and not used to restaurant environment. The only experienced, quality waiter was clearly frustrated with the limited and confused support he was getting.

We love this place. The food is great, the portions are generous, and the service is excellent. That's why we keep going back.

We prefer the West Chester location over the one in Newton Square. Newton Square is much smaller and is more hectic.

This was our first visit to this location and we were pleasantly surprised by very large portions of excellent food. They had a large rehearsal dinner party and the dining room was full, so it was noisy and the waitstaff was working hard, but doing it well. Will go back for sure.

Pasta was undercooked. Scallops were over cooked. Not enough sauce on the pasta. Would have helped with the flavor. Very bland. Would not go back.

Quality of food- production staff not following consistent portions and temperatures. Grilled artichokes missing olives and oil and was cold, had to ask for olives. Fried Calamari served with cold marinara.

The owner didn’t greet us with a smile or warmly & when we wanted to sit at a different table seemed annoyed. The waiter was great but there are too many good Italian restaurants in the area so we won’t come back.

This restaurant is BYOB. That is fine, but when you don't BYOB, you should at least have iced tea. How does a restaurant not have iced tea at 5:00 on a Saturday, when you have s little else to offer to drink?

Food was OK. I had a seafood salad. Calamari was tough and tasteless. Wife had pasta in "pink" sauce, but was more like marinara sauce.

Very large portions of pasta, but small amounts of crab, meats, mushrooms, or whatever was to be added to the pasta dish. Nice spacing of tables. BYOB a big plus!
