I'm not really sure how to review the food, as the owner made the experience so unpleasant, that we considered walking out. He was yelling at a waitress and we could hear it from the kitchen to the tables. We had a group of 10, and all were considering leaving. It made for an awkward and uncomfortable environment. The waitress... More

Our favorite for Italian specialties and Matt can really serve up a good Rib eye Steak too! I Love their rolls and if you are hungry for a Salad try the Chef Salad and substitute it with Grilled Shrimp with their delicious house dressing. We eat there at least 2 times a week, sometimes more.

Having dined at Fratela's several times before, I realized that I have never reviewed it, so here it is. Delicious! Competent and efficient service. Owner operated. Small town friendly. The menu is traditional Italian with a good variety. Home baked rolls are wonderful! House salad dressing is a tomato vinaigrette and is really good (a bit tangy for some). Stromboli... More

After eating here one evening my wife developed a case of food poisoning. An hour after we ate she was sick for the next 8 hrs. I wont go into the gory details but needless to say it wasn't a pleasant experience for her. She ate one of their specials for the evening, shrimp and lobster ravioli. She said it... More

Don't judge this restaurant by the location or décor! Everything we had was amazing. The portions are large, I took some home for lunch the next day. Oh, and the bread!! You won't be disappointed!

Great local owned restaurant. Nothing fancy, but great food and friendly service. Generous portions and wonderful bread. The pizza is out of this world; heavy with toppings and great thin crust. I'll never order from Pizza Hut again.

I wasn't expecting much. The decor inside and out is bad, and the location is not attractive. The first "wow" was the bread. It's amazing--fresh and hot. They make it there and the owner could not have been nicer. He's a real Italian and takes pride in his cooking. The salad was fresh with the dressing on the side, and... More
