“Dissappointed”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were looking forward to a quiet dinner for 2 that is not what we got. A bus boy was vacuuming the dining room as we ate our appetizer. Our fried calamari tasted more like fried rubber bands. The fisherman's platter was made up of frozen fish. It was over cooked and dry. The veal was just ok. The waitress was not friendly and just ok. We hear that the pizza is good but not sure we will go back and try again.

“Best Chicken Parm :)”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Have been here several times. A friend from out of town, insists we go there at every visit. Portions are large, enough to share with a friend. We had Eggplant Parm, which two of us shared, Veal Francese, Cold Antipasto and mini calzones. Have had the chicken in the past and love it. The calzones were made to order in the Brick Oven Pizza. All of us were pleased and came home with lots of leftovers, including the antipasto.

“wanted to like it but.....”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Fratello's has an extensive menu with delicious-sounding listings. But I've never had a good meal there (in 6 tries.) There is no subtlety or finesse. Chicken crepe sounded delicious but came smothered in heavy cheese sauce. I ordered a spinach dinner salad and got an entire bag of spinach and not much else--it was huge but disappointing. The stuffed peppers were equally plain--just hamburger. Their pizza has a nice crisp brick-oven crust and the Mediterranean topping with kalamata olives sounded great but it was also covered with uncut sun-dried tomatoes that were so tough to chew I could taste nothing else. I specifically ordered the cheaper glass of Pinot but was charged with the more expensive one--they changed it as soon as I mentioned it but general lack of alertness here. The main room is packed with tables and noisy. There is a back sun room that is much nicer. I have friends who really like this restaurant but I've been disappointed.

“Great Family Restaurant! Brick Oven Fired Pizza!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We come to this restaurant a lot. It's great for a casual dinner but also for a special occasion. The menu is mainly Italian and everything is always delicious. The décor in the restaurant is beautiful with high ceilings and a beautiful hand painted mural. It feels good when you enter and service is great. Love, love, love the brick oven fired pizza which is their specialty and so reasonably priced for a pie.

“Wood fired oven pizza at its best”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Antipasti like you've never seen or tasted. Wood fired oven pizza wonderful. Would go there again and again just to keep trying other entrees!
