Fellini Cafe Trattoria

I have been to the Ardmore location countless times. Each time better then the previous. They are friendly, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is romantic and cozy. I have never had a problem or a bad experience with Fellini's. Looking forward to my next visit!

For the second time in the past few months I ordered the same dish. The description indicated the dish would contain portobello mushrooms. I did not contain them either time. When I complained the first time, a hugh portobello (grilled ) was brought the the table. This time I was told the mushrooms in the dish were portobellos. They were the plain white mushrooms that are in my refrigerator. In these tough times ( the restaurant was almost empty on a Sat, night) they can ill-afford to be so careless.

Fellini's is proof that you can take a decent location, on Ardmore Ave. in Ardmore (an highly used tributary for many Main Liner's). It is visible and located on the border of two great counties: Montgomery and Delaware Counties. These counties have old and new money but definitely have money. So as a main-liner myself, I can be very picky with the plethora of restaurants, locally situated,advertised, ready and poised to relieve my bank card of little for themselves. So Fellini's which has a sister restaurant in Newtown Square is doing quite well. The food and ambience are what you expect. The exact same menus is at either location. The Ardmore, which is the original Fellini's, seems to have become the punch-line to many a Main Line joke. When first opened it was more than decent, but a restaurant ran by poor management, a lack of advertising, with nothing ever being reinvested into the restaurant, deteriorates eventually. Now it is en-extremis (quickly dying). I have eaten there many times in the past and not often at all now. Don't get me wrong, the food is decent, and the portions are huge, BUT there is a language barrior issue as everyone there speaks Spanish...I do not think that anyone aside form the owner is Italian. The dishes, sliver-ware and glasses are often dirty, or at least not properly cleaned by the dishwasher. The specials are the same for over a week. There is a smell when you are seated near either of the 4 lavatories and the lights are kept dim so the unsanitary is hidden in plastic vines, leaves and fruit.

I've been to Fellini's numerous times because people always tend to gravitate there because of their big portions and low price tags, but that's about the only thing the restaurant has going for them. The food itself is just ok, nothing special but like I said, good for what your paying. The place is tiny and crammed and they tend to put tables by the door where people are waiting to be seated, so if you are at one of these tables you will have people standing over your table and watching you eat.

Worst conceivable pasta with shrimp scampi. Beware!

I don't know much about the Fellini's in Ardmore but the same restaurant is on State Street in Media (also a BYO) and it is terriffic. I've sat out on the deck before, which was nice, and in house. It's a little tight for space but it's nice and quiet, the food is always lovely and original. A far cry from your overprocessed, bland chains. It's fresh, the people are nice--I've even seen the head chef come out and talk to folks in the dining area. It has an intimate feel to it. I really hate the fake foliage, though! Totally worth the money. Doesn't sound anything like the Ardmore location!

This was subpar. Ordered takeout from here - pasta was way overcooked and gummy. Got the minestrone soup - the only veggies in it were carrots and celrey. Broth tasted like water. Bread was probably the best part of the meal. I've had way better italian for the same price.
