“Excellent food!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Anything with Fratello sauce is amazing! Eggplant parmagiana is outstanding. We eat there a few times a month. My husband loves their veal fratello and veal parmagiana. I love Chicken Fratello and Chicken Rollatini. It's a small restaurant so we always get there when it opens at 5pm to avoid a wait. Again, Fratello sauce (lemon buttery) is delicious! Try it - you'll be glad you did.

“Their namesake dish is outstanding!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Fratllo's has stellar service and wonderful food. The Shrimp Fratello is one of the best dishes you will ever have! The servers are some of the best we have ever encountered- they show exactly the right amount of attention, This very popular restaurant is nothing to look at on the outside, and the decor is not fancy, but the food is everything you hope for in a restaurant.

“Awesome As Always!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

The veal fratello was perfect as always! They tried to clear away my side of fratello sauce and almost lost an arm! Just kidding! My husband snatched the last order of scallops w fratello sauce, which was one of the specials for the night...would not even share a bite!

Service is always great. Wonderful, appreciative owners, staff.

By far my absolute favorite special night out and even great for carry-out on nights I am craving it and "just don't want to cook dinner tonight!"

Ron and Craig...and the rest...always make for a pleasant night out!

“Very good Italian”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Because of the food this has become one of our special occasion places, although every time we go we always say we should go more often. We've only had veal dishes here so we can't comment on the full menu, but what we've had has been excellent. The portions are large, and we always end up with leftovers for the next day. The meals generally come with a side of pasta, which is almost a meal in itself. The bread is great, served soft and warm; the house salad, which is a la carte, comes with only one salad dressing, an Italian that can be somewhat sweet.
The service is very attentive. The dining room is rather plain, but all the tables do have white tablecloths under glass tops, which makes it at least a business casual type of place.

“An Italian gem on the North Coast”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Yes, a very good/excellent Italian Restaurant on the North Coast! The building was an old Lawson's dairy mart years ago. So, do not let the outer appearance fool you. Inside awaits fabulous food and wines for your pallete.
