All of the tables are filled with smiling happy patrons as piping hot pasta dishes steam in front of them. Wine glasses (byob) clink and then there is a tap on a champagne flute. Instantly, there is silence. The Opera singer steps forward to the expectant gaze of a hundred eyes.
She does not disappoint. The guests are left to wonder where they have been transported. Surely, this is not Media!

The service is great and the food is delicious with generous portions. The town is quaint with shops and cafes in the area. Prices are high teens to mid twenties. Worth every cent!

I love the food here! It’s a bit small inside but it’s thw food is worth it. Portions are large so be hungry. They Leo give you bruschetta at your table. Their shrimp scampi with tomatoes is delicious. They also have a few tables outside. I have had many more dishes and all were very good-must go!

We recently were on our way to Media PA for a Saturday night out... we were in the mood for Italian and while we had our mind already made up for one place.... we decided at the last minute to try Fellini’s.

It was the vast pasta menu that really attracted us.

The restaurant is a BYOB - and while we were ill prepared this Saturday night... we won’t be next time!

All the food we had was very much delicious and I can safely say that everything was fresh and sourced from good sources instead of the old cheapo stand-by that many places buy from such as Sysco.

We started off with an appetizer of PEI mussels in red sauce.
With all due respect to the restaurant, I do not believe these were PEI mussels. I would change the menu. It’s not cool to try to elevate a product if you’re not serving it. But aside from that.... the mussels in the sauce were absolutely outstanding!

I ordered the chicken Marsala ..... this was certainly delicious but not very Marsala like though if you were to call it something else.... you would consider this a very complex and delicious dish. It had mushrooms, sautéed prosciutto bits and caramelized onions in a deep, thick demi glacé with two generous chicken breasts. It was really outstanding in taste and portion. This came with a side of spaghetti with sauce and it was delicious!

The pasta was properly cooked. The grated cheese was freshly grated. You could still taste the moisture in the cheese.

The sauce was delicious. Not overly acidic, not too sweet, not too thin.... and definitely either simmered for two hours or maintained in a hot bath for a while. Why is this important you ask? It helps develop the flavors and brings to your palette a more complex taste.

A plate of oven baked rigatoni was generous and delicious and a monstrous plate of gnocchi in a pesto sauce was equally well done.

I give this place high marks for the attention that they put into all their dishes from the sourcing, prep, portions and serving.

Would we return? We can’t wait to return.

Well done guys, well done!
