We discovered Fellinis on West Charleston by accident. We were looking for a quick meal at a chain-restaurant like Olive Garden where we knew the food would be adequate and couldnt find it. When we were making a u-turn on West Charleston, we spotted Fellinis, which from the outside looks a little like a pizza joint. We were hungry and we were there, so we "settled" for Fellinis... which turned out to be a lot like "settling" for a Bentley when youre shopping for a Ford. We now never go to Las Vegas without stopping in.We were greeted like old friends at the door, seated immediately, served promptly and entertained well. The atmosphere is both welcoming and elegant, a neat trick if you can pull it off. The small restaurant has had live entertainment every time weve been there, but though the singers are always very good, the music is never so loud that it imposes itself into intimate conversation. Though many months separate our visits to Las Vegas, since our second visit to Fellinis, weve been recognized and warmly welcomed back. As nice as all that is, its the food that keeps bringing us back. On our many trips there, weve worked our way through most of the menu and have never had a meal that wasnt extraordinary.But no matter what our entree is, we ALWAYS start with the Torta di Frommagi, which our first waiter recommended. Dont let the description on the menu scare you away. Try it. I promise you, youll close you eyes and chew very, very slowly to stretch the experience of that flavor out as long as you can.Weve been to Fellinis at both Sams Town and the Strat, and though both of them -- particularly the one at Sams Town -- have been really good, neither quite measures up to the dining experience at the original on West Charleston. If youre looking for amazing food at reasonable prices and an overall soul-feeding, completely relaxing dining experience, Fellinis is definitely worth the trip.
