The service at Fratello's is always phenomenal! The owners are personally involved in service and food quality! The meal choices are always spot on delicious - pricing is spot on for the quality. Don't mind paying a couple dollars more for a relaxing, quality meal. Fratello sauce is heaven on any meat, poultry or seafood dish. Pasta is done to... More

We are both fans of this restaurant and have been going for two decades, but 2 weeks ago they had a really bad night. The Shrimp Fratello is normally fantastic with a crispy outside and tender juicy inside covered with a lemon butter sauce. Something was not right, the texture was off but it was still just ok. Their side... More

Its kinda on the small side but boy oh boy was my food good. I'll be back. My wife and I spilt our meals so we could try a nice variety of the menu. It was all good. But you better dress up to go here. I don't think its a blue jeans work boot t shirt kinda place.

We recently visited Fratello's with family for the first time in many years. The menu was much smaller than I remembered and my old favorite orange roughy was no longer offered. However, I have to say that the food in general was much better than it used to be. The wine list is extraordinary, but fairly expensive for a suburban... More

When during every visit, you order a side of the House sauce for take-out, you know the restaurant is a Home Run. We love the menu and the staff at Fratello's. They happily cater to special requests and vegetarian preferences. A trip to Fratello's is never wasted.

When we first moved into the area, it took a year to find out about Fratello's. Tucked away in a former mini-strip-plaza without neon lights or flashy exterior, it's easy to miss. But once we discovered it, we've returned repeatedly. We love the majority of items on the menu, especially the Shrimp Fratello entree. The bartenders are friendly and the... More

Excellent food with extremely large portions. You definitely need to be hungry when you dine at Fratello's. Lately, we have enjoyed the carry-out, more so that eating at the restaurant. Depending upon your appetite, one meal is plenty to split between two people with smaller appetites. If you don't share your meal, you will likely have l lunch for the... More

My husband and I have just moved to the area and an acquaintance was raving about the food at Fratello's . She dines here every Friday after work. Well, after trying the parmesean and the penne with meat sauce, we will not return. The marinara sauce on the parmesean tasted as if someone had opened a can and heated up... More

Our friends live on the East side of Cleveland but when they come visit us we have to go to Fratello's as it is there favorite restaurant. We love this restaurant also. Always warm greetings from Kate behind the bar to the Owner Ron who takes great pride in his restaurant and guests. The food is excellent as I had... More
