Visited this restaurant on recommendation and with our friends, the Smiths. It so happens that they had a special function that them busier than an one arm paper hanger. Still the waiter was able to handle the task and still maintain a good sense of humor and a good level of service. The food was quite good and the portions... More

Four of us showed up at Zio Fraedo's for dinner and were surprised by the small dining room as the place looks pretty big from the outside. Well, it turns out that the inside is divided into a public restaurant, a bar and several meeting rooms. The interior is well-appointed and comfortable. The staff is among the friendliest encountered and... More

The place is apparently for receptions and big party venues so there were several function rooms. Ours was buffet style with roast beef ( the best of the lot), chicken ( not so good), meatballs ( not as tasty), white pasta ( which we found bland) lots of salads and assorted fruits( fresh and good) . Service was good. Parking... More

It's a little retro, a little 1950s, but that's part of its charm! The food is good and plentiful; our favorites are the warm spinach salad (big enough to share) and pasta putanesca. Mmmm. They also have a full bar. Check the all-inclusive prices on the specials; they tend to be a little higher than the menu. Enjoy!

When I was a kid, dad would take a pot over and buy a bunch of minnestrone soup for dinner. Their food is great. I've been here many times for birthdays and Father's Day, Christmas parties and anniversaries and even dinner and dance nights. Sometimes they have bands here and you have dinner and dance to oldies. The fried ravioli... More

Zio Fraedo's is a gem right here in Pleasant Hill, California. It offers great Italian and continental cuisine with daily specials. While the dining experience is elegant, with great wait staff, it is also relaxed, so you don't have to wear a suit to enjoy the food or drink. Speaking of drinks, you have a wide range of wines as... More
