“Excellent Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Over the last few years we have frequented Fratelli's at Ferndale Johannesburg on many occasions. The establishment is supervised by husband & wife team Mandy & Robert and is an excellent busy well run restaurant with special prices during the week on Pastas & Piazza.(Mon thru Thursday) The general menu is comprehensive and represents excellent value for money. They have a tasty range of baked Pastas, such as Beef Lasange which at R75 represents good value for money. Staff are efficient, fast and friendly and they have an excellent take away service.

“Dissapointingly Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Pastas and pizzas are average. If your're going to go make use of their special Mon thru Thu otherwise its not worth the money. Best thing is the atmosphere.

“The best pizza, steaks and salads in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

What a well run restaurant. The place is spotless, the meals are well priced and the meals are fantastic.
The owners and managers are on top of things that happen there. The staff is all friendly and service is 10/10.

I enjoy the pizza and salads. However the T-Bone steak is a winner too.

“Fratelli d'Italia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

An excellent family restaurant and even a nice romantic spot. They have a weekly special on all pizza and pastas so value is great. The food is delicious, the sangria is tasty and the fireplace keeps you warm and cozy!
