What can I say? When we visit the Lakes Region; we HAVE to stop at Fratello's! In all our visits we have probably tested every thing on the menu. Our only disappointment was that they took the Carbonara off the menu. They probably would have made it though if we had asked. Had excellent meals anyway. Swordfish was on the... More

This place needs major remodeling. The roof was leaking, the carpet smelled like mildew, the chairs are very uncomfortable. Service was good, good was great but over priced.

Fratello's is a very good Italian restaurant in Laconia. It adeptly handles townies and vacationers with ease. It is a very full menu of outstanding Italian fare. It is reasonably priced but superior in taste and presentation. I have never been dissatisfied with a dinner or lunch there. The bar is also nice.

Surprising large menu, good wine list, large portions, seafood done very well. The Calamari excellent, was light, crisp and served on a bed of linguine, with olive oil and garlic - that was different. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and we had a great experience here. Very good service was provided for our large, diverse group. We had takeout... More

I tried this place on two different occasions, hoping the service the second time around would improve. Unfortunately, it didn't. Ordered the steak - absolutely no flavor and extremely pricey. Save your money.

Maybe we are too fussy since from NJ/NY/PA we have Italian everywhere. This was just average and the pasta was underflavored. The service was nice but the sauces were heavy and thicker than necessary.

This is my grandpas favorite restaurant, so we always visit when in town. LARGE portion, and family friendly. They were able to accommodate a larger party - we called ahead.

Dined here Saturday evening with friends on our way to a concert at Meadowbrook Pavillion. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very pleasant - not too fancy but classy. We ordered chicken caesar wrap, the vegetarian Italian pie, and two people split the chicken marsala. The waitress brought out delicious breadsticks with two flavors of whipped butter... More
