This is what I'd call a typical Italian restaurant. Nice style without being very formal. Not a lot of dishes but the ones we've tried has been quite nice. Been here for lunch twice and at that time this place is normally far from crowded, so very suitable for business meetings or a date. Prices are decent and service is... More

Having eaten here a year ago and loved it, we were very excited to finally find ourselves back in town and going back. Sadly it was not our wisest choice. The service was very slow moving, unorganized and it was a long wait to get our food. Once the food did arrive it was awful...2 meals had no flavor or... More

I had a veal chop that was great. Nicely cooked and attractively presented. The wait staff is attentive and very friendly. This was our second meal here. Both very good.

Just moved to Milford and wanted to find an authentic Italian restaurant with a warm atmosphere- I hit the jackpot last night after trying out Fratellis. The food was incredible, beginning with fresh bread right out of the oven to the perfectly prepared pasta dishes (I highly suggest their rigatoni alla vodka). The service was phenomenal as the staff was... More

I went with all good intentions hoping to enjoy this local restaurant. Very uninformed wait staff who were poorly trained from our experience. The bus staff (water) was most attentive. They stacked appetizer dishes while others were still eating, which in my opinion is inexcusable. We were a party of six and ordered drinks, which were watered down and weak... More

Been to Fratelli's two times and not sure if I would go back. The food is really just average although the service and ambiance are good. It would be a reasonable place to go for a large family gathering.

Had a wounderful meal again on a Sunday evening. I had eggplant rotini and my wife had steak pizzaoli. Both entries were well porpotioned and excellent. Marina sauce iwas excellent. Finished the meal with coffee and a slice of Godiva cheesecake. Waiter was excellent and very accommodating .

This was my first time here. The place was packed on a Friday night. It was VERY noisy now as to the food.. it was good, let me repeat good ..... note, I didn't say great, the portions were of a good size maybe that's why the place was packed. The service was slow maybe due to the place being... More

Went there for a nice relaxing dinner with my family. I actually like the food and the atmosphere better than the old Nello's. The food portions were generous and the staff was very attentive. The prices were very reasonable. Thanks for a great, relaxing dinner.

This place used to be called Nellos and they had a sign out front for pasta specials between 10 and 13 dollars, and it was good food at a great price. Then a while back it changed to the current name and the sign changed as well; pre fixe for $28! Really?! No thanks I said. So I avoided it... More
