For being an old Taco Bell, this place is pretty good. You won't find a better lasagna than the one they serve. The breadsticks are a must.

Ate here without checking reviews. Didn't realize that you have to stand in line to order and than go find your own table. They do give you a number and at least bring your food to you. Food was good but not great. Very casual dining.

On the plus side, you can get a beer or some wine. On the downside, everything else. From the outside it looks promising but once through those doors you feel as though you've been transported to a hospital cafe. Tried the lasagna w/eggplant and a bruschetta. Everything tasted as though it had been dipped repeatedly in sugar and did not... More

After Ring Day at A&M we decided to zig while everyone else zagged and got immediate seating at Frittella's. The food was excellent. I judge by the eggplant parmesan, my personal Italian favorite, and was super impressed! The bottle of red Italian wine was amazing. Pizza excellent. Great decor. Cute from the exterior and wonderful inside as well. Can't wait... More

It was little unexpected to order and then sit, but the food is so good! I order lasagna verde and the best cheesecake ever. The lasagna was delish with a superb marinera sauce and lots of cheese. They make their own pasta! But the highlight for me was the cheesecake, so creamy and the crust is so crunchy with some... More

The food is always good. Casual dining -- order first, then sit, they'll bring the food as you enjoy your wine by the fireplace. (The wine list is white, red, or blush)....but that's just my style...don't need that fancy stuff. Check the hours before you go! Not always open for dinner and sometimes close between lunch and dinner.

My wife and I visited Frittella Italian Cafe in Bryan. At this eating establishment you place your order at a counter. If you arrive during a busy time you may find yourself standing in line for quite some time. Fortunately, when we arrived it was not busy and our order was immediately taken. After placing the order and paying, you... More

Dont come here if you want a fine dining experience but if you want solid southern Italian - this if for you. Owner is Italian I think but regardless try th eggplant or any of the baked pasta dishes. Great for families.

We love coming here. The owners have put so much time and energy into this place and it shows. You may have to order at a counter but the food is leaps and bounds better than any of that chain food. I could practically drink the marinara. It is sooooo good. The focaccia bread is highly addictive as is their... More

Portions way too small and salad bar lacks all imagination and variety. Should be called Honeymoon Salad. "Lettuce Alone"
