My other half and I had our second date at Fratellos over two years ago and must have come back more than ten times since. We are both well travelled and have been to Italy but Fratellos is the best Italian restaurant we have ever been to. I have tried many dishes now and they all were faultless and of excellent taste. We have taken various friends and family and everyone is full of praise for the food and the great service. Definitely our favourite restaurant in town.

Not knowing Swindon at all and finding the town pretty deserted on a Friday night, we were absolutely delighted to stumble upon this restaurant. It had the feel of a family run place, was reassuringly busy, and it didn't take long for our pizzas to appear. It wasn't the best value food we've had, but was just what we needed. The service was friendly and efficient, and although many parties were leaving by the time we launched into dessert, we didn't feel rushed.

We were staying just outside Swindon and were looking for a restaurant for an evening meal. Tried this restaurant and were amazed by the quality of the food and the welcome and the effiicency of the staff. The highlight though was the food I've been to a few Italian restuarants in my time but can't recall having better food than in this restaurant. We had plans to eat eleswhere on our second night but quickly decided to return here. the pizzas are terrific the lobster soups is great and the pasts dishes are top notch. Whenever we are staying anywhere nearby we will return. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work.

Lovely food, excellent service, very enjoyable meal.The only small criticism I have was the cauliflower side veg, which did taste a bit stale, perhaps because it was frozen? We had the special crepe and mixed seafood starters, plus one sirloin and one medaglioni main course and a banoffee dessert. Everything cooked beautifully, sauces extremely good and service was faultless. Will be back.
