Fratello's is a lovely upscale restaurant right on the main road through Laconia to the lake. Nicely appointed and good service, but I have been here about four time and each time I come out thinking that something was missing. They have a large menu with all of the traditional Italian dishes and brick oven pizza, which is what I... More

We decided to try Fratello's after all the great reviews. We didn't mind the hour wait to be seated or the hour wait to get our entrees because we were expecting delicious food. Boy were we surprised. The Veal Parmesan that I received was inedible. I still can't believe that they sent it out of the kitchen. The entire outside... More

Love this place, and seek it out each time we visit the area! It is always PACKED, so get there early (before 6), or you will certainly be waiting (but it IS well worth the wait!) Loved the piano player (easy going, jazzy - relaxing!) FOOD: Salads: Fresh and tasty! Dinners: Italian specialties - never had a bad meal here!... More

Exceptional dinner. Their Butternut Squash Ravioli's is a must to try. Evening piano player on site.

This is the second time we have been here. The first time was for our rehearsal dinner two year ago. Then, for our anniversary. Both times the food was outstanding. The portions are huge for the price and we left very full and happy.

We took a few days in the Laconia area to enjoy the Lake Region. We enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at Fratello's. We chose to have our meals in the cozy bar upstairs. In the both cases the bartender waited on us. Service was excellent although at dinner the bartender/waitress was a little overbusy. The bar area seems to... More

Title pretty much explains our visit. Food wasn't bad, but the service was terribly slow, and we were seated in the bar area, and it was way too loud. Like it, but those are pretty significant issues.

Had dinner with a group of 7. We were all tired from a long day at work and wanted some great food. We arrived and were seated promptly. There were already several groups dining and the piano player arrived just as we were seated. He proceeded to play beautifully during our entire 2 hours there. The waitress was very pleasant...

We were driving through Laconia looking for a different restaurant to try for dinner when we spotted this Italian restaurant. At first we didn't think we were dressed well enough because it looked upscale, but we checked at the door and they said we were fine. It was a great laid back experience helped by the friendly waitress and piano... More
