Fellini's Ristorante at the Stratosphere is the type of "Old Vegas" restaurant that many diners appreciate, after patronizing the more upscale and trendy offerings on the Strip. The prices are much more reasonable than its higher end neighbors, plus the entrees actually include a side dish.
The Internet Buzz on Fellini's Ristorante is more limited than other Vegas restaurants, but is favorable. Many comments on how good the meal was, considering that the restaurant is located in the down market Stratosphere. The servers get even higher marks than the food, i failed to find a single negative comment on the service at Fellini's, that really says something.
- I love going to Fellini's. The service is always consistently great and the food as well. The dining rooms are quiet little escapes painted to look like Italian villas, and it makes it very easy to forget you are in a casino. And that alone is a huge plus.
- Ok so to start I didn't expect much it's a restaurant in the hotel. I figured it would be ok. But no the food was amazing.
- Frederico Fellini was a brilliant and enigmatic Italian director of films. 4 of his films won an Oscar for best foreign film, any film aficionado, they would recognize his titles, like La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, La Strada, and Amarcord ...This Fellini's isn't a legend like Frederico was, but it is a solid Italian restaurant in the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino. The prices, for Vegas, are reasonable, and the food is tasty and well done if not extraordinary and memorable.
- Fellini's was much more reasonably priced than some of the other restaurants we ate at on our vacation, and was definitely my favorite. Our server was just adorable, and treated us (two out of place, scruffy looking college age kids) like we were much classier than we looked. I mean, the server pulled out the chair on the table for me, spread the napkin over my lap, always addressed me first, etc. The entire wait staff was professional and unobtrusive, keeping our water glasses full without ever interrupting our conversation.
- the waiters really did seem Italian, which was kind of a neat touch, and the food was delicious. We both had fabulous pasta, which was pretty authentically Italian but also had those American fixings we like so much (basically, cheese, and bring it.) Prices were reasonable for Las Vegas, and the meal was probably the most delicious of our vacation. Yummy!
- we went here and surprisingly, it was pretty good. For starters I had the calamari fritti and split a shrimp cocktail with some friends. For my entree, I had the Spaghetti carbonara with parmesan sauce and pancetta. The food was great and the service was excellent.
