“Our 2nd Xmas Do at Fratellos”
Reviewed 27 October 2010

Spotless, modern and comfortable.

Food is excellent, and hearty portions considering the prices. Had melon & parma ham for starter and it was a big portion. Desserts all look like they are straight off Masterchef.

Service is spot on, and we wanted for nothing. Not at the poshest end of town, but with new developments coming, this will change.

“What a beautiful place! Such a jewel of a Restaurant!”
Reviewed 19 August 2010

My husband and I went for an impromptu Wednesday evening meal and it turned into such a special treat. As I am heavily pregnant I asked to be seated on the ground floor when I booked and this was passed on to the waiting staff when I arrived. The female waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food, nothing was too much trouble. The menu is just amazing so we took ages to choose our feast, again this was no problem and we were given ample time to decide. Drinks came really quickly as did complimentary olives and after ordering starters they came really promptly also.
Food is of a very high standard and as we have quite exacting standards we were really happy. The Insalata Tricolore and Beef Carpachio were stunning and to follow we had Gnocci with truffle and cream and hubby had Tagliatele Fratello's which were both served promptly and were very fresh, flavoursome, full of fresh herbs and seafood.
We don't eat out in Swindon generally as I feel the standard of restaurants is not high but this is quite a jewel. Please give them a try if you are also a Swindon sceptic!

“Consistently good - Best pizza this side of Italy”
Reviewed 4 June 2010

In my opinion Fratellos is the best retaurant offering in Swindon for both food and service. We visited this week and once again it was excellent. As soon as we were seen to our table a bowl of olives arrived as a little appetizer. The Funghi fritti and the Caprese salad were lovely starters. The wood fired pizza is the treat of the retaurant - it arrived hot and crispy with plenty of toppings and just a little tinge of wood smoke that make me think that they make one of the besst pizza's this side of Italy. My wife had the canelloni which she said was also good. We skipped desert this time only because we were short of time but they usually offer us a free limoncello or liquer to finish the meal.
