Let's face it.... Vallejo is not the town it used to be. Unless you want a chain restaurant out by 80 and columbus pkwy, there are only a few choices left. One of the hidden gems still around is this place. It's off the beaten path and right on the water front. Our group of 6 had reservations for a Saturday night, we sat next to the window with a perfect view of the marina and sunset. There was only one other couple inside when we sat down, but they were doing a special event next door in the larger banquet room. The sports bar area looked nice with plenty of seats at the bar and small tables. After getting settled, we were taken care of right away, I think our waiter was "Steve"...? The menu has a lot to choose from, almost too much but it covered all the Italian and american food bases. I ordered the chicken cordon blue, one of my favorites and had not had it in a while so I tried it. Not bad, but I had so many first choices, I wanted a taste of many dishes offered. Several of my group ordered the bacon wrapped filet and everyone liked it. The dinning room filled up quick. By the time we left, all the tables were full, plus the banquet was going on. We never felt like we were getting less attention based upon the larger group in the next room. Again, considering your choices in Vallejo, you must not pass up an opportunity to visit and eat there. I will go back for sure.

Took just over an hour for our order to be taken, but didn't leave earlier because we were with a group. Waitress excuse was she didn't know we were ready to order. Bread was brought to our table, but we weren't given any bread plates and we had to ask for butter. Prices very high especially since it was average food with an ala carte menu. How do they stay in business?

Zio Fraedo's has a wonderful view of the water from their main dining room. This room is acoustically challenged. Restaurant aims to be fine dining establishment, but professionalism of staff doesn't quite match. Also, cost of meals is high for just better than average food.

Everything about this restaurant is average. The ingredients come off a truck from US Foods and onto your table. You can do better.
