Friends and I stopped in for dinner last week. Service was a little slow, but courteous. Their red sauce is scrumptious. I tried their eggplant parm. It was perfect with angel hair pasta in a delicate but flavorful red sauce. My friend ordered a lemon caper chicken which she raved about. My other friend ordered the chicken parm on a... More

Had lunch at Fratello's - I had a sandwich and my colleague had a salad with shrimp. The sandwich was good, but not that special. The salad with shrimp was much better, but still not that memorable. The salad with shrimp was $19, though.

We took a friend out for an early dinner and entered this establishment to find only one table occupied. The hostess asked if we had a reservation which we didn't and then she spent a considerable amount of time looking over her book before finally deciding if and where she would seat us. Okay, maybe there was going to be... More

Visited with a friend for a week day dinner. Our food was good and our waiter helpful and solicitous. When I had part of my meal packed to go, they did an unusually nice job and added extra bread and condiments. Highly recommended.

Someone had given us a gift card to Fratello's but we had forgotten about it then found it and used it. We will return. Had cavatelli, lasagna, and chicken parmesan. All great with varied pastas. Server skilled and owner personal.

Fair not really impressive food. Very casual Tavern type atmosphere. Would not go back for special occasion. If your looking to drink alcohol before or with meal you might like Fratello's

When we entered Fratello's, it was apparent this was a friendly place to meet for drinks after work and stay for dinner. Luckily we called ahead for a reservation (highly recommended) and our table was waiting. My wife and I split the Fratello's salad (Radicchio, romaine, baby arugula, grilled Bermuda onions, grilled artichoke hearts, golden figs, candied pecans, roasted red... More

This restaurant has been on my to-do list for some time as I appreciate authentic Italian food and culture. PLUSES: 1. Attractive interior. 2. Our food was delicious -- cavatelli, roasted pork. NEGATIVES: 1. Too many tables, very little room to maneuver. 2. A bit too dark. 3. Our waiter was way off ("R"). Never a greeting, thank you, or... More
