light supper with a friend

Upon arrival and after being seated, our drink order was taken and a warm basket of rustic Italian bred was brought to the table accompanied with very garlicy whipped butter. We started out our dinner with the house salad. Normally we both ask for our dressing on the side, but Fratello's does a... read more

Smaller quaint restaurant with high quality food. Never had a bad time there. Excellent wait-staff. Building used to be a Lawson's store (if your familiar with Lawsons). Smaller restaurant but that makes it special. Large wine selection and large portions.

You will recognize the exterior of this building as one of the old Lawson's stores, but don't let that fool you; no chip-chop ham nor French onion chipdip inside, only the best Italian food for miles around. At the bar, Kate will take good care of you the minute you walk in. The chicken or shrimp Fratello is always excellent;... More

Fratello's is one of the most consistent, high quality restaurants anywhere! My favorite seat is at the bar! Excellent wine list, great service! Reasonably priced, great for takeout too! The entree's are large enough, my wife and I usually split one.

If you love huge portions of delicious Italian food, Fratello's is your spot. It may not look like much from the outside, but it's what's inside the kitchen that counts! Their warm bread and seasoned butter is enough to keep you coming back. There's not much better than that with a glass of red wine. The service is top notch,... More

This place does not look like much from the outside but inside is a bustling wonderful cozy restaurant. We have been going here for years and never once had a bad meal. Best veal in the area and the artichoke fratello is an awesome appetizer.

Italian Food in my home town. Friendly staff. Moderate prices. They do have a reputation and have been there for years, so even though not on a main through fare, they get plenty of out of town business

Always my choice for my birthday dinner. It's a great little cozy place to have a bottle of wine and some great food. I always get the veal fratello and absolutely love it.

Fratello's is my choice for every birthday and anniversary. The food is always delicious and the service is always excellent. They also have a great wine selection. The Chicken Fratello is my favorite and its hard not to order it every time I visit.
