Fellini Cafe in Ardmore, the inexplicably popular "Italian" purveyor of not very good food, whose owner notoriously makes his employees pay for the "complimentary"wine served to customers, is closed by order of the District Court, not for health code violations as you might expect, but for non-payment of judgments for rent in arrears.

And then of course there were these recent gems about Fellini on Craig's List:



Check the Montgomery County PA court dockets. A lot of people aren't too smiley with them

Say what you will about the place but we now have another vacant store front on an already neglected and rundown downtown. Maybe they will fill it with another salon!

Just so you know, this is a very common system they use when the business is not profitable anymore (Fellini's Paoli closed years ago and they filed for bankruptcy and walked away) .

The cafe in Ardmore is sued in state court (Delaware county) and they will file now for bankruptcy chpt 7 or 9 which makes it easy for them to walk away without paying any creditor or the lawsuit.


In the meantime they are preparing to open the new location in Chaddsford PA :

Fellini Cafe

1620 Baltimore Pike

Chadds Ford, PA 19317-1931

Local: (610) 388-2202

which will have an absolute different owner name (I believe the cook from Ardmore) but the scumbags are still part of it and make money again.

I fixed the URL in the post and frontpaged it.

From the article:

According to court records, the owner of the café, Guiseppe D’Alto, has three judgments against him. Each judgment was 12,130.31.
