A quick dinner with no fuss. Kids menu was quality for cheap. Grownup meals did not lack flavor. Efficient and prompt service. A great family option.

This was a great experience and the food was excellent. The services was average but the food made up for that. We will definitely return and try another delicious dish. We liked the area with smalls stores reminded us of Old Alexandra.

Fratellos Italian Tavern is an American Italian restaurant located in Mount Pleasant in the I'On Community, featuring Italian comfort cuisine with a menu driven by local seasonal ingredients and a homestyle feel. The word Fratello in Italian refers to fraternity or brother. It is this bond that our proprietor Richard Tuorto and Chef Kevin Bruntz had in mind when they shared favorite family recipes to create a unique dining experience.
