Still think best Italian in Charleston area. Went again last night. Noticed in daylight thought place could use a nice clean up. Bit dirty and aged. Food was great. No Happy hour anymore which makes no sense as bar was empty? Maybe HH would help?...More

My wife, friend, and I had an awesome night at Fratellos! The pasta dishes were all delicious. There was a great selection of wines, and the deserts were magnificent! In addition, the servers were enthusiastic and helpful.

Lots of other highly rated eateries nearby. Reservations are highly recommended as the place was sold out on a Thursday night. Filled with locals. I had the rolled eggplant dish, the Rollentine. It was very good. This place is worth repeating.

They didn't have any items marked "gluten free", but check out their menu on line and see if there's anything that suits you for gluten free.
