This place has been here about 3 years and we had never heard of it. It's at the very end of E Montague in N Charleston. The food is about the best Italian we have had. The service was also great. If you go on a weekend you should have reservations or go early as it is not large. I... read more

Found this place on trip advisor and so glad we went. Would have never found it otherwise. Food was fabulous. Did not make reservations and I would recommend you do. However we just waited at the bar for an open table. Very much worth the wait.

The chef met us at the entrance and invited us in for the best North Jersey Italian in the South. It might be the best in North Jersey. I enjoyed the pork chop which was delicious. Fratella's is on my list of have to's from now on.

After reading reviews we decided to try this place for dinner for our night in Charleston. Overall great service, my husband has a dairy allergy and they were very accommodating to this and the chef came out to our table a few times to go over some options and to check on how we liked everything. We eat out quite... More

Okay, you have to leave Charleston, your at an airport hotel and you're hungry. You don't feel like driving into Charleston. Guess what, you're not screwed. Down the street from your airport hotelis a gem of an Italian restaurant, Fratellos Italian Tavern. We sit down, Christy brings you some crusty bread, garlic infused olive oil, you order the house wine... More

Great authentic Italian food and the service is excellent. Their stuffed portobello mushrooms appetizer is absolutely amazing! You won't be disappointed!

A beautiful place with great ambience and great food! This is one of our favorite places to take friends from out of town. We have never been disappointed with the quality of food. Delicious!

Arrived at 8:30 pm on a weeknight. Sat for 20 minutes without even a glance from wait staff. Not even water, bread or a drink order. Finally just walked out. Still no acknowledgement as we left. Shame because all the reviews have been good. Restaurant wasn't even full.

Great Italian, great atmosphere, great service, good value.....highly recommend. Lasagna was wonderful as was the Rollentine.....pasta was all fresh made, very well seasoned. Brûlée was a little thin and unset.....but over all, fantastic place.
