Great service and excellent food. The hot bread was a great start. We had the antipasto, veal parmigiana, chicken and sausage creme Rosa, and a bottle of wine. We highly recommend Fratellos.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Fratello's with excellent and friendly service. This restauant has a really nice atomsphere with live piano music during the dinner meal. The food was outstanding. Joe, our waiter recommended the Chicken and Sausage Creme Rosa as a local favorite that has now become one of ours as well. Great meal selection, convenient location, and... More

My wife and have been here at least a dozen plus times over the years. Our most recent visit was 12/31/16 mid afternoon. We went purposely then to avoid the New Years crowd. By doing so it was not crowed and thus the service was very good as well as the food. It was a lunch menu but there were... More

They do a fairly good business with the locals with a simple taste and knowledge on food. Its like food you get at anyplace,but you pay abit dearly for it. Maynas is way over this place if you want a great tour of Italy.

The atmosphere was great, the main entre' was very good, but the pasta side was rather ho-hum. Perhaps it's unfair, part of my family is of Italian extraction where they really cook the real deal. Pasta sauce tasted like Prego. It wasn't bad, but nothing real special.

First time. Appears to be a local favourite and was taken there by a local. Busy place. Food came quickly. Waitress was impatient. Food was very American, large and lots of sauce. Quality of meat was low quality and food could be cooked at home.

Atmosphere was delightful, waiter did his best, but the food was bland, burnt, tasteless, and poorly prepared. The penne was obviously pre-cooked and the marinara did not hide this fact-- anything not covered in sauce was cold. The chicken Parmesan was burnt and had to be sent back to the kitchen ; the veal parmesan bland, not particularly tender or... More

Chris M, Owner at Fratello’s Italian Grille, responded to this review

znoopster, I am very sorry to hear about this disappointing birthday dinner experience. You are completely right, there is no excuse for a burnt entrée ever reaching the guest. I have already begun to determine when you were in and who was responsible so I can emphasize the importance of quality products and presentation and insure it doesn't happen again.... More

The service was wonderful, the cocktails were great, the live music was fabulous, and the food was amazing. I had there signature Manhattan, a salad- Cesar, bread sticks, and a Mediterranean pasta dish. The sun dried tomato cream cheese that they serve with the bread and butter was life, I am addicted. The whole experience was good.

Went on a Friday night to bar and ordered appetizers. Which were very good. Would recommend the stuffed seafood mushrooms. But our service was lacking. Took forever to get our order. And then once our food was delivered we didn't see our server for the longest time.

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
