Almost felt like just getting up and leaving. I'm sure you know the feeling. Waitress tried to "blow it off", like no big deal, I'll... More

Fratello's is all about the neighborhood! Food is solid and service is good. It's more about being comfortable and hanging out to relax. If you go for dinner, they offer a lot of food.....a little bruschetta to start on the house, then order your dinner which includes a salad and then a generous entree of your choosing. Servers are friendly... More
