We visited Fratelli's for a weeknight dinner with a party of four. We really enjoyed the meals, particularly the Burratta / Bruchetta appetizer The Chicken Fratelli was also nicely done and quite good. The servers were very friendly, welcoming and really attentive. the restaurant is not large so I would recommend making reservations.

This little place is fine. While not the best Italian food we have ever had, it was tasty and the service was very good. Only bottled beer and a limited wine list too.

You feel cozy in this lovely small restaurant. Everything I have had for dinner is just perfect, hot, fresh and so delicious. The Waitresses are very caring and attentive. The chef is friendly and makes wonderful dishes like my Nonna used to make. If I could eat there every day, I would. My hat is off to Dave and Bruno... More

I was in the area with my family. We all love Italian food and decided to try Fratelli's since it was fairly close to our hotel. It is small and not fancy at all but the food is solid and the prices are good. We had alfredo, chicken parm, and carbonara. All of th meals were great and the portions... More

A bit crowded in the dining room and sometimes at the bar. The food is very good and the portions are fairly large.

My wife and I decided to take a ride somewhere for dinner away from the local scene, and she hit the web for ideas. She came across Fratelli's and wrote it down. I came home from work and saw the website, and said "Let's try it". Pretty easy to get to, I was first a bit surprised that at a... More

Had eggplant parm and may have been best I have had. Wife had linguine with white clam sauce, she said it was a littke heavy on the parsley but still good. We went before 5 and got in without reservations, I'd recommend calling in for a table if you go any later.

This restaurant is always a good choice for lunch or dinner. We recently went to dinner there with friends and loved the veal parm, spaghetti and meatballs and steak. All came out hot, presented well and the service was good even though it was a busy night. It's not a really big place but they do take reservations which are... More
