This is bad food, lacking in creativity and quality. They pour on the butter, cheese, etc. so people think it is good, but there are no herbs or spices or creativity to be found. All of the ingredients seem to come from the supermarket. If you like butter and cheese disguised as food, then enjoy, but people in the know... More

We arrived at 430 on a Friday. I did the call ahead and when we left at 545, it was getting very crowded. We drove from Westminster to this restaurant because of hearing how popular it is. Our waited arrived at our table and took our order. He waited patiently while we decided what to order from a very large... More

Really nice family restaurant! I enjoyed the food and the server was really nice. The portion sizes are wonderful. As a person from out of state, I would definitely reccommend this to anyone who can go there. The northender was a great meal because I got a mix of different meats such as chicken parm, meatball and sasauge. I give... More

Misha was our server and she was absolutely fabulous! My husband even mentioned how on point she was! The food came out in a timely manner and our drinks were delicious! The bar tender on that night definitely knew their stuff! It was our first visit and we will definitely be back next time we are in town!

I've been here only a few times. Would love to make it MANY more. The food is always terrific & I have never seen more attentive staff. They can be packed and yet they make you feel like you're the only ones in the room. . I went there for my birthday and brought along my infant granddaughter, the staff... More

We've been there a few times but I've not taken the time to review this "ristorante." We had a great meal and nice time for a special event within the family. I would recommend this for a special place to go especially if you love Italian food...

I have come to Fratellos and their sister restaurants for years as a NH native and sat at the bar over the past several years to eat. They have a serious lack of staff on busy nights. I watched two bartenders and one overworked bar back serve more tables than I could count, and at any given moment 0-1 waitress... More

Had a wonderful meal at Fratello's last Saturday night. Started off with a cocktail (very reasonably priced) and ordered our meals. Chicken Capri for my wife and Veal Saltimbocca for me. Even though it was a busy night with several parties the service was excellent thanks to our waitress Sherry. The meals were fabulous and the quantities were ample. So... More

Thank you for the feedback…in the future you are welcome to take advantage of the city parking lot just to the north of our building. I apologize for the warm temperatures in the building on Saturday. Our system is automated and by the time I made a manual adjustment it was later in the evening. Thank you again for joining...

My husband and I go here several times a year...atmosphere is great, building is beautiful. I like the staff, and the fact that the size of the restaurant can accommodate almost any size party. However, the food is not much above average. The menu is HUGE, and the portions are too, but the dishes lack flavor. Risotto has been plain... More
