Fidelli Kitchen’s motto of “blurring the line between fast and fancy” is the perfect descriptor for this unique neighbor gem. Fidelli’s delicious menu and option for wine tasting makes it an ideal spot for date night, family dinners, catching up with old friends or grabbing a quick bite on the go. At Fidelli, you can expect a fast casual model where you order and pay at the counter with helpful staff available to provide recommendations.
One highlight of Fidelli is a pay as you go wine card which allows you the option of sampling a variety of reds and whites or indulging in a half or full glass of wine to compliment your yummy meal. This self-serve option allows for a satisfaction guarantee. Fidelli boasts having 99 bottles of wine of the wall, so just beware this may trigger a familiar tune that gets stuck in your head. If wine isn’t your drink of choice, Fidelli also offers a handpicked selection of craft and popular bottled beers.
Now onto the food! Fidelli’s menu offers fresh, fast choices inspired by a Euro-Italian way of life. It’s convenient but also and more importantly delicious! A noteworthy item on Fidelli’s menu are their bread cones. The meatball cone features meatballs in marinara, penne pasta, grilled veggies and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese. There is definitely a lot of cone so ordering a side of their delicious marinara sauce is a good idea. The penne pasta is cooked to perfection and their meatballs are full of flavor and seasoning and have to be some of the best in Charlotte. The other option is the Tuscan BBQ cone with shredded chicken, Tuscan coleslaw, BBQ sauce also topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese. The chicken is moist and the BBQ sauce is sweet and tangy. We sampled both the white and wheat cones and though wheat is the healthy option, the white cone was much tastier.
The Caprese Pesto Panini is an alternative option to pasta and a fan favorite. With fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes and sliced tomatoes; this classic sandwich is offered on a Dutch crunch roll. Definitely goes well with an order of macaroni and cheese topped with bread crumbs!
