The location overlooking the river and water village makes this restaurant worthwhile. Food is decent and more-or-less Italian. There's a variety of pasta, pizza etc. There's also an Asian menu and the steamboat we saw at other tables looked very good. Staff are attentive but it's quite expensive by Brunei standards.

Try the quattro staggioni pizza! Delicious! Home made dough, crispy baked and fresh topping make it perfect. Worth trying are also bruschetta made of fresh tomatoes, as well as garlic bread with chili olive oil. The location of the restaurant on the river bank is very convenient and cosy. It is also close to the shopping centre and the main mosque. We ate there every evening :-)))

Yes, you can step into the restaurant for a meal, but in my opinion, Fratini comes into its own, when you take a table on their porch at the Bandar Seri Begawan waterfront, right across the famous "Water Village". This spot, looking over the Brunei River onto the historic "Water Village" of Bandar is really one of the magic spots in the world for having lunch or dinner. You never tire looking at the hustle and bustle on the river and the "flying coffins" ferrying people from one jetty to another. Add to this, that the service of the staff at Fratini was perfect, friendly and dedicated, and the "Pizza al Salmone" delicious, then you will understand, that I cherish the memory of the time spent there and have taken a vow to return some day. See the the attached pictures. Oh, I almost forgot, the Bruschetta as appetizer and the chocolate dessert were also delicious.

We just moved here and have been eating at numerous restaurant since we're stilled holed up in the Rizqun hotel attached to The Mall. Fatini's is decent food but I've been a little shocked all three times we ate there. Fortunately we found the much more reasonably priced Grazie Mauri, short for Mauricio's which actually serves better food. Frateli's advantage is there are nine of em, including one at The Mall and the one across the estuary from Kampung Air (famous village on stilts over water). If location is less important, you want to spend less and eat better food, go to Grazie Mauri across from The Mall!
