We stumbled across Fellini’s restaurant and could not believe how lucky we were. The first time we have ever been to a 5 star vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The food is next level. We treated ourselves for 3 nights in a row to the fabulous menu and...enjoyed every night. Staff were great and made you feel special.More

A fantastic meal at Fellini's tonight. Food was extremely tasty, service spot on and atmosphere perfect. Couldn't fault this place. Two of us are vegetarian but one wasn't. Nevertheless, we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Would definitely recommend and we will visit again if we...are in the area. Thank you for a lovely evening 😊More

Exceptional food and service. Everything was cooked to perfection. The starter souffle I had was as light as a feather. Staff were welcoming and gave us time between courses to savour the flavours .More

My husband is a chef and we are often disappointed when we go out for food (as he is a wonderful cook). As vegetarians, it’s hard finding somewhere with a decent menu. This restaurant is incredible - it’s the best meal we’ve had out in...over a year and the atmosphere and service were exceptional. We would highly recommend it.More

We went to Fellinis for my birthday, the day after we had visited the sister restaurant, Zeffirellis. It has a slightly different feel to Zeffirellis but is just as sumptious. Once again the staff were really lovely, everything you want - a nice chat, great...service and really friendly. We had the nut roast and it didn't disappoint. Again absolutely nothing to fault, just great food, great service and a great restaurant.More

Very overpriced menu for New Year's Eve. Nothing really special. Very disappointed. Total bill was £247 and that included a 20% service fee. Whilst the customer service was great, I would not have left a tip of £40. London prices in the Lake district. Won't...return.More

The definition of a hidden gem. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but oh my goodness what a meal. It was so nice to have vegetarian food that was so much more than bean burgers and pasta. We shared a cheesecake for starters- savoury cheesecake...is such a good idea - and then had the cauliflower steak and an arrangement involving aubergine, with lava cakes to finish off. Each course was beautifully presented and the portion sizes were just right. Topped with great staff and a lovely atmosphere this is definitely one to visitMore

This place is that rare gem: a wonderful restaurant with an upscale ambience that just happens to be vegetarian.

The menu is not vast but so good to have decent veggie / vegan options and the food we sampled was delicious. Unfortunately our starters arrived before drinks but that was quickly remedied. We tried the goat cheese tart and the arancini balls, both very...tasty. For mains we had the cauliflower steak and the nut roast. Again, both delicious. Another slight mix up with my side dish but apologetic and quickly resolved again.More

We’ve eaten here numerous times over the years. Our first visit was on the second day it was open and it’s been a treat coming back every time. Don’t be put off by it being vegetarian (are people still put off by that?) and also...don’t be put off by the menu. I often have little idea what whatever I’m ordering is going to look like. Just be assured that it’ll be delicious!! The restaurant also has a cinema screen upstairs. With tea, coffee, wine, popcorn and other snacks available. The seats are extremely comfortable and I always love the selection of films on offer. The manager Nenad is a great guy and has been there since day one. He recognises us every visit (even after a two year hiatus for us for the pandemic/illness). The other staff are always excellent too. Highly, highly recommend!!!More

Whether you are a vegetarian or not, this place is outstanding. Pure veggie food but, trust me, you will not miss the meat. Better yet, unlike a lot of veggie / vegan places they don't try to pretend it's meat with fake burgers and such....This is high end cooking but just with vegetarian ingredients. We always visit when we are in Ambleside and it never fails to please. We had a nut roast and a cauliflower steak main, both of which were tasty, inventive and stunning. I often find some vegetarian / vegan meals lack depth but here......as deep as you like and more. Desserts of a gorgeous crumble with ice cream and a beautiful pavlova rounded off the meal. It's hugely popular so make sure you book but it is well worth it.More

Really impressed by the imaginative and delicious menu - and wine list. Lovely stylish ambience, friendly and professional staff too. I had the individual moussaka (not something I’d normally try at a veggie restaurant tbh) but this was fresh and delicious. My partner ate cashew...roast en croute, also delicious. I ate mine with a beautiful Italian red, she drank a French white. They really know their wine here, as well as their food. We are both long term vegans and I used to be a professional cook and food/recipe writer so it was a treat to find such quality. Anyone would enjoy this food, whatever their dietary choices!More
