Our whole experience of this restaurant was great: attentive staff, great drinks choice, good value wine list, and interesting menu. All the food was much better than in the average UK Italian restaurant, but the pizzas in particular were outstanding: bases so thin and delicious that you could eat them on their own, with fresh, delicious and perfectly-judged toppings, cooked in a proper pizza oven. So good that I did something I've never done before: I ate in the same place twice in three days. Congratulations are also due to the barman, who served me the most perfect Bloody Mary that I can remember. Airports in the UK are not exactly famous for serving good food: Fratello's spectacularly defies expectations.

Visited Fratello's this weekend for the 3rd time since opening and must admit have enjoyed each visit very much. Each time we have tried different off the menu. The menu is not vast, however there is a varied choice. We all enjoyed our starters, having said that I have had king prawns on each visit. (beautiful), The men opted for steaks for their main, both confirmed cooked perfectly and served with tasty handcut chunky chips and the sauce was served in a seperate little jug. I ordered bolognese pizza, which was delicious, light, crisp with a generous amount of bolognese sauce. My friend had the fettucini with salmon, which she also confirmed was very tasty and just the right amount. All the food is presented beautifully. The staff here have always been excellent on each occasion, very pleasant, and helpful without being intrusive, and have a good knowledge of their menu. Good atmosphere with relaxing background music. Looking forward to trying sunday lunch and eating al fresco in the summer months...

Thank you for providing your review. We always accept feedback and take actions appropriately and this is what will be done in this case. We are very sorry that you had to wait on this occasion and hope that you will test my word when I say that upon return the service will be much improved. The bar area at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel is a Columbus Bar and I will pass this review over to them also so that we can jointly work on improving the experience of our guests. We do hope to see you again soon.
