Fellini’s Pizza is Domino’s older, hotter Italian brother

Rating: ★★★★★

I hereby declare Fellini’s Pizza an Atlanta favorite.

Fellini’s is pizza upgraded. Fellini’s is how a pizza place should have been created. Fellini’s is Domino’s older, hotter Italian brother.

Their menu is short and simple, offering only pizzas, calzones and one salad. This place doesn’t mess around. It attracts a large crowd because it is simple and straightforward and because the people in charge choose to stick to what they do best: make pizza.

FullSizeRender (67)You’ll never wait more than a few minutes for your food. In the meantime, you can relax in the air-conditioned dining area inside or admire the pretty water fountain under stringed lights.

You could easily have a delicious, filling meal at Fellini’s for under $10, or even under $5 if you tried hard enough. After all, slices come out at about $4, but I was pleasantly satiated after just one slice.

Each pizza is freshly baked with stringy melted mozzarella on a crunchy and medium-thickness crust, often topped with fresh garlic. They’re modestly generous with their toppings.

FullSizeRender (68)My sister swears by their vegetarian pizza (left – $3.90), mainly because it doesn’t take second place to Fellini’s meatier alternatives, boasting mushrooms, onions, green peppers, olives and tomatoes.

Basically, a supreme pizza minus the pepperoni.

FullSizeRender (69)I had their Spinach Mushroom pizza (right – $3.70) which is simply a slice of cheese pizza topped with spinach, mushroom and freshly chopped garlic.

My dad had the Fellini’s Special (below – $4.40) aka the vegetarian pizza with pepperoni, Italian sausage and meatballs.

I remember barely being able to finish it, but enjoying it because it was hot n’ fresh ~~

What sets this chain apart from all other pizza restaurants in Atlanta is the execution that goes into the production of every pizza, resulting in an exceptional slice every time.

Fellini’s has multiple Georgia locations; I’ve visited:

Howell Mill: 1991 Howell Mill Rd. (404) 352-0799

Roswell Road: 4429 Roswell Road (404) 303-8248

Decatur: 333 Commerce Drive (404) 370-0551
