We went here one night after a long exhausting day. It's a small place, nothing fancy but it was packed. The night we were here, they were a little understaffed and service was a little slow but we arrived during the peak dining time. The menu is typical Italian, except when it came to the specials. Their special the night... More

Great twists to some classic American and Italian fare. Attentive and knowledgeable staff, great wine list, reasonable prices, food well prepared, what more could you ask for.

A small restaurant with excellent food and service. Eggplant Parmesan is my favorite dish and I was not disappointed with Fratello's version.

I have been to Fratello's a number of times and the service and food is always excellent. I love their soup and flatbreads as well as their signature Fratello lemon sauce. Yum

Looks like "just a neighborhood place" but inside you'll think you are in a little spot in Italy. Well-prepared Italian cuisine, especially veal dishes. Excellent wait staff. And you can talk to your companions without shouting!

Enjoyed take out from Fratello's. Veal Parm is excellent. Shrimp appetizer is excellent as well as the spaghetti and meat balls. Wish they were open Sunday and Monday as that's when we need something for take out.
