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

First time eating at Fratello's Ristorante and was not disappointed. Even the kids loved their food. Great service too! Would definitely go back and I highly recommend this establishment to anybody.

This is one of our favorites. The only downside that we have found is that the service can be slow. The food is good and consistent. We would recommend Fratello's for any season.

We have dined at the Manchester location and always had great meals. Laconia has equally satisfying good portions with fresh ingredients at reasonable prices. I also love the atmosphere of both locations, and that they have regular entertainment. They have a wide selection of dinner choices, including vegetarian. I love the sunroom in the upstairs Laconia location. We all loved... More

We went here for my Birthday Lunch with our daughter, my husband ordered the Chicken Carbonara which was Awesome! Our daughter had the Fratello's Pasta Special (Pasta w/meatballs and a side garden salad) she really liked it. I had the Northender (Meatball, Sausage, Breaded Chicken over Penne')To be honest, they really skimped on the melted mozzarella so I was disappointed... More
