“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Had the Pepper Stew Over Pasta one night and enjoyed the house salad, large portions for the entree, Decided to return the next night and had the Chicken Italiano with chicken breast peppers and sausage. Could only eat 1/2 of it and took the rest home. We drove 3 hours to visit Cumberland so we wanted to have some food that was good each night and this fit the bill

“Just Skip This One”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Just skip it.
Inexperienced and unfriendly waitstaff seemed bored and bothered, and made a complete joke out of the wine presentation. While the atmosphere was generally decent, the booth seating was so far away from the table that it made it awkward to try to balance yourself on the edge of the seat to try to eat. This restaurant tends to fill up fast, and the noise level is at a constant dull roar. Not a good fit if you'd actually like to talk to your dining companion. The food has gone very downhill from my first visit just over a year ago. The bruschetta trio that wowed us on our first visit has been reduced to some large, crudely chopped hunks of tomato thrown on some tired looking, dried out bread. When we made a complaint about my husband's entree (which was not edible), we were told there was no problem, as nobody else had complained. Save your time and money!

“Great food but”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

They serve some of the best entrees in Cumberland but when I am dining and paying those prices I am irritated by their paper placemats and napkins. If you want a cheap look then serve cheap entrees. If you want to charge your prices give me a linen tablecloth and napkin.

“Fratelli's delivers”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Fratelli's serves great food. My wife and I visited Fratelli's for dinner and were extremely satisfied with our meals. The crab puff appetizer is excellent as is their homemade meatballs. I wanted veal picatta but they only served picatta as a chicken entree and it was delicious.

Our waitress was "spot on" never intruding but visited the table often enough to service our needs. While the decor is somewhat dated and the lighting was a bit dim for our likes, the quality of the food and great service made-up for any complaints from us. A nice dessert followed our meals and we shared a very tasty cheese cake. Needless to say, we needed doggie bags since the serving portions were very generous.

Excellent dining experience.
