A Go-To Place

Fratello's is a regular stop for us - as a couple, with family, or with friends. Focus on the Italian menu; it's their specialty. The pizza is especially good. Friendly staff.

Fratello's for years has been our favorite NH restaurant. We make an annual visit each summer with my sister and brother-in law. This visit will be our last unless Fratello's cleans up their act and returns to its' old ways. Hopefully this review will help. We were seated right away. We ordered the fried clam appetizer which was served quickly... More

We were delighted that we were able to walk in and be seated at this Laconia restaurant. In the heart of the Lakes Region it's difficult to find a seat on a Saturday night. The waitress was friendly & fun and they had a pianist playing a great selection of Broadway and other tunes at a level where we could... More

Went there twice in one week. Large menu selection, has outdoor dining as well. The piano player adds a little extra touch to the dining experience. Great prices, great food.

We come here every summer as a big group. (Definitely worth it to "call ahead") I can always remember the delicious menu items I have tried before and am ready to repeat, but then I find something else that proves to be equally tasty. Stuffed flounder(?), seafood lasagna, and chicken in sausage in creme rosa sauce are some of the... More

Went on a Wednesday night at 7pm and there was a 45 min wait. They asked if we wanted to eat in the bar as they had tables right away. We were worried that the service would not be the same but it was beyond good. As for the food we totally enjoyed everything we ordered. My wife had the... More

Disappointed in the food and atmosphere. Just average, and unfortunately we felt the place wasn't very clean. There was food on the floor (carpets), which the wait staff just stepped on or over - staff cleaning tables just brushed food from the tables onto the floor. Food was nothing special - had been there once in past years, and it... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant. I had eggplant parmigiano with fettucine alfredo. My wife had a substantial salad and we split a sausage soup, all delicious. Nice atmosphere, very good service, nothing to complain about.
