“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Drove from West Ashely to N. Charleston and the service and food were great. We ordered the night's special salad and the 4 of us shared it. Fresh and delicious. The Calamari was served differently than we had ever had before but the waiter had described it so we were aware. The portion was good for 2 people. Our entrees although not too original were very good and the portions were large. Our waiter was helpful in describing the dishes we were ordering and very attentive. Prices are reasonable. We were seated at a nice large booth, tables are not crowded. There was a large bar where you could also eat.

“Interesting menu....not your average N Charleston fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Had a good lunch at Fratello's. It can get quite noisy at lunch, so don't go for a quiet getaway. There is outdoor seating in good weather. Great salad....the group I ate with was pleased with their dishes. Would go again and try dinner.

“Another Reason Not To Miss New York or NJ Fratello's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Outstanding meat and pasta dishes served with a combo of homestyle gourmet. Good Mix for any real Italian. Another excellent Italian Restaurant in the North Area should keep people from The Olive Gardens of the world. Service was good and decor rustic with modern touch, other mix that worked well. Good Wine list offered and in the end my clients happy they had me as their Realtor expecially when I picked up the tab! Worth the GO, Lou Russo Carolina One Realty.

“Deserves 6 stars!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

We had already eaten when we ventured in here for a drink, but the amazing atmosphere and precious server, convinced us to have dessert. Best decision ever! The limincello creme brûlée was creamy heaven in a dish. Seriously decadent and amazing! My fellow diners had the cannoli and brownie cookies and those were equally amazing. Chef Kevin visited our table and discussed gluten free options for a future visit, as I have a gluten allergy. He was knowledgeable and friendly and made us want to return. This place is an excellent addition to Park Circle!!!!!!
