Our meals were incredible, but save room for dessert because it was amazing too. Sweet location for a family dinner or romantic night out.

Spend a 30-40 min wait (Saturday evening at 19:30) in the 2nd floor bar - but it was actually a pretty cozy warm-up. Recommend to call some days before to get on their 'wait/caller list' so you get priority over walk-ins. Got a really good corner table downstairs just next to the piano player. Very pleasant. Especially since we during... More

This Italian Resturant has the best food around without a doubt. Great ambiance with a gentleman playing the piano. Just an all around perfect dinner experience.

Fratello's was a tradition of ours more than a decade ago. We even had our wedding reception there. But after not being to the Lakes Region for so long, we were wondering if our memories were colored by distance. Our recent visit was even better than we had hoped. While Fratello's bruschetta has always been our measure of this dish... More

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurant in the lakes region area! It's a great atmosphere in an old bank which is pretty cool. Also they have a gluten free menu that is delicious!

It's hard for me to review this place because this is one of my "go-to" places when I'm hungry, out with friends and can't decide where to go! The wait staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. The food is always good and we don't feel rushed. A big plus is the live entertainment that they frequently offer.

On arrival we asked to be seated upstairs away from the loud piano player - seemed to cause confusion as the girl at the front desk thought upstairs was full and she'd have to check - we were then lead upstairs where there were lots of free tables - where did all the customers go? We ordered pizzas from the... More

We dined here while in Laconia on vacation. The service was attentive and friendly; the food was well prepared, well presented and the outdoor seating was very pleasant. Wonderful experience and we shall return.
