Large portions

The people are very nice and the service was great. Portions are large but the food is very average. I think they just don't get the flavor profiles expected in Italian cooking. Too bad because it could be a nice place.

After a more positive review about this restaurant, we really had a less-than-positive experience. The restaurant is very dated and now feels very dates as well (stuffy). We had the Sunday brunch buffet. The variety of food is reasonable for a buffet, although I noticed a lot less seafood than previously. The food quality was very average but if you... More

Amazing Italian meals. From regular pasta to pasta with fresh seafood. Steak is available and high recommended.

Yes, the pasta and the bread was really great! Wife & I ate there twice. Only ONE thing on the menu is NOT pasta. There is one great entry for a steak. I ordered it. It was the worst steak I have ever seen served in a restaurant! It was approx. 1/4" thick with strips of gristle and fat running... More

We were staying at the Hotel so a captive audience unless want to drive again. The restaurant is old but service was good, friendly and quick. We had pasta, was plenty of it and tasty, came with salad and really good bread. We enjoyed our dinner and thought it good value.

We went there for an early dinner about a week ago, on a weeknight. The place was quite empty, only 2 or 3 people working out in front. The bread was good but our entrees were disappointing. My husband's veal marsala was a much smaller portion than we're used to seeing here (though of course the price was no smaller)... More

Ended up twice at Fratelli's this weekend and both times had excellent meals - the calamari was outstanding and so was the stuffed trout. On Sunday, I had to arrange a last minute breakfast for 15 and Fratellis was the right choice. The buffet starts at 11 and has breakfast and lunch items - as well as a cook preparing... More

Walked in. Noticed about 6 tables seated. Waited 4 minutes to be get a table. Sat for 5 minutes then we were given water. Waited 6 minutes and left. Also, it smelled like pee and coffee.

Despite the mixed reviews we went there with the family for dinner of a Friday evening. Restaurant was rather quiet, seems more focused on business travelers staying at the HoJo during the week. We all had different kinds of pasta. Nothing was really convincing - okay, but you would expect things of a higher standard in an Italian restaurant than... More

I'm so disappointed after living in Cheverly for over 20+ years and never visiting Fratelli's, against the advice of several of my neighbors, to stay away from Fratelli's me and some friends went there for dinner. Here's my take on this local neighborhood dive: 1.) the establishment it self is in need of a serious make-over, panelling and 1940's tile... More
