After having many lovely meals at Fratellos over many years, our recent dinner there was a disappointment. Service so-so, prices higher, food just average.

I'm giving up on this restaurant. My tortellini were so overcooked that they were a soggy, shapeless mess in the bowl. My wife's fish portion was so small that she left the dinner still hungry...and she doesn't eat much. The waitress was condescending, possibly because we only ordered one cocktail. Considering the poor quality of the food, everything was overpriced.

This place is great. Super ambiance, as close to real Italian as you can get in NH, and warm friendly servers. Celebrated a birthday, table for 10, incredible evening! Can't wait to go back when the weather was s warmer! Dinner on the deck!

This was the first time my husband and I ate at this restaurant. Got the recommendation from a few people so we thought we'd give it a try and we're glad that we did. Although it was very busy inside, the wait time was shorter than expected. They do not take reservations however you can call at least 1 hour... More

We have been going to Fratello's since it first opened in Manchester. The McDonough family took what used to be an old mill in the Amoskeag Millyard in Manchester and made it into a comfortable Italian eatery incorporating the original brick and wood beamed structure as well as one or two of the pulley and leather belt power wheels.

Stopped by for a drink and really enjoyed the fireplace room (it was snowing out). We were greeted warmly!

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.
