When visiting family in the area, we always dine at least once at Fratello's. It's a relatively small place, so reservations are advised. The wine list is extensive by the bottle; the selection by the glass is much smaller, e.g., only on Pinot Noir. Food is excellent, with the Fratello's sauce of lemon and butter superb. Favorite dishes include Fratello's... More

Enjoyed take out from Fratello's. Veal Parm is excellent. Shrimp appetizer is excellent as well as the spaghetti and meat balls. Wish they were open Sunday and Monday as that's when we need something for take out.

Always good homemade authentic Italian food. The waiter was friendly but green. They recently dropped the wedding soup from the menu.

We took our sister-in-law to Fratello's Restaurant while she was visiting. Had an absolutely wonderful meal. I had Veal Parmesan. My wife and sister-in-law both had Sea Bass. The food and service were top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant.

the overall impression - like you are visiting friends. Nothing fancy - neither in the exterior, nor in the interior, but everything is top-notch when it relates to the art of letting people spoil themselves on food and drink. The food may look simple - but it is delicious, whatever you order. I was pleased with the food to the... More

Party of 5. 4 had Veal Parmesan, 1 had eggplant parm. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Entrees don't come with salads but they are available for $5 more. Have lots of available wines. Comes with bread and a side of spaghetti. Nice decor.

Having heard much good about Frtello's, I took my wife for her birthday, a late lunch. Their home made bread was a treat with soft butter. The eggplant parmesan was just ok, but the sauce was great. I had the veal saltimbocca, but felt it was not crisp or done properly, the prosciutto was tough and not what I expected.... More
