Slow service, sauce on pasta not very good. No salad included with dinner. tiny bread basket, had to keep asking for more when we COULD find our absent waiter. Over priced for what you get. I'll stick with our favorite, Corsos! Good price, salad or soup included, delicious hefty bread portion, excellent service, great authentic Italian sauce and served in... More

We were trying to find a different restaurant for dinner on Friday night at the last minute. On line reviews looked good so we headed to Fratello's for our first visit. We will go back again. We were in no particular hurry. We got there at peak time on Friday evening. We were told the wait was about 20 minutes.... More

We went to Fratellos when we got the news that we finally got out home! This is a very quaint upscale restaurant. Their food is outstanding, especially the shrimp Fratello. Their sauce is wonderful. I have been here many times. I have never had a bad meal here!

Fratello's food and service is exceptional! I probably eat there (or take out!) at least a dozen times a year for over 10 years. My favorite dish is Chicken Fratello, a more delicious take on piccata, but my friends and I rave about other dishes too. I often eat Italian when I travel, but none have come close to Fratello's.

Food was really good. Our waiter was perfect. Problem was when we got close to finishing our meal, servers kept coming by wanting to take our plate. Over and over and over.Like they were ready for us to go and we still weren't finished. Rush rush rush. Not how you treat customers. We were visiting my father and decided to... More

We went here one night after a long exhausting day. It's a small place, nothing fancy but it was packed. The night we were here, they were a little understaffed and service was a little slow but we arrived during the peak dining time. The menu is typical Italian, except when it came to the specials. Their special the night... More

Great twists to some classic American and Italian fare. Attentive and knowledgeable staff, great wine list, reasonable prices, food well prepared, what more could you ask for.

A small restaurant with excellent food and service. Eggplant Parmesan is my favorite dish and I was not disappointed with Fratello's version.

I have been to Fratello's a number of times and the service and food is always excellent. I love their soup and flatbreads as well as their signature Fratello lemon sauce. Yum

Looks like "just a neighborhood place" but inside you'll think you are in a little spot in Italy. Well-prepared Italian cuisine, especially veal dishes. Excellent wait staff. And you can talk to your companions without shouting!
