Visitors to Charleston sometimes ignore the outskirts of the city preferring to immerse themselves in the area "below the broad". I can understand that having lived on Meeting Street at one time but now, after staying in North Charleston for a few days, I can say that there are places to go and to see that should be part of your Charleston visit. Fratello's is one of them.
The small 40's / 50's strip of commerce where it is located is poised to become one of the places to see. I have no doubt that in 10 years this whole area will be packed with visitors and great clubs and restaurants. Before that happens, get yourself out there and have a meal at Fratello's. Once inside the restaurant / tavern you could be in Brooklyn. Brick and wood, but not the franchise feel kind of ambience; it all feels very original.
Married to an Italian with a mother in law who cooks everything from scratch could present a problem when comparing restaurants to Nonna's kitchen, but Fratello's measures up. The food and the service were both very good and great value for the price. But with Fratello's the joy is in the combination of friends, food and atmosphere and Fratello's in North Charleston offers one of the best places to dine in that area.
Break out of downtown for a little adventure! You will add it to your list of great memories of Charleston.
