Reservation for 7:15 pm Saturday night. Seated promptly. Service started out as expected - water, wine list, menu updates identified, nice bread delivered. Ordered 2 starters to share - beet salad and roasted cauliflower. 2 beets arrived, no cauliflower. Before the mains were delivered the server noticed the appetizer error. The cauliflower appy arrived quickly (on the house) prior to the delivery of the mains. We ordered the Gnocchi with rabbit & the pork loin with wild muhrooms. Both dishes were excellant and more than adequately sized. We passed on dessert but the server delivered a port on the house to compensate for the appetizer mix up. The table layout is good. It is a long narrow room but they avoided the long wall tables too close together arrangement. Nice atmosphere and even though the restaurant was full it was not too noisy. Perfect! We will return.

We ate outside and had a very good meal. The only exception was the "Panzanella" salad, which was a molded bread salad made far too soggy by over-dressing. The pastas were fresh and flavorful; the boar ragu was really tasty. Bruschetta was good, too. Nice desserts and espresso; the wine list was pretty good as well. Worth a stop for a casual meal in the Pearl.

Fratelli's is an fine contemporary Italian restaurant with an intimate dining room and limited outside. We were warmly welcomed and served, and we enjoyed a delicious meal of house-made pastas and delicately prepared seafood. We concluded the meal with an ethereal chocolate fondant. I highly recommend a visit to Fratelli!

Small and quaint...serving wonderful food. One of my favorite for Happy hour small plates. Try the Bruschetta with shaved beef, Mascarpone and truffle cheese! So good!!!
