I have sat in the bar area both times I have eaten at this location. I think the menu is diverse with a lot of great SOUNDING options. I have mostly eaten the salads when eating at Fratellos and have been disappointed in the small amount of the listed toppings that actually make it onto my salad. Both times at this location my greens (that definitely came out of a bag) were drowning in an overpowering vinaigrette and then the other toppings ie: cheese, nuts etc were sparse. For 13 bucks I should be getting more than lettuce soup please! I also had to ask for the bread that is typically served complimentary and have been in general unimpressed with the bartender's ability to remain attentive at the tables... if the bar is too busy to provide table service please assign the table to someone else. I will go to Fratellos again.. I have had better luck at the other location on the water where I ordered the bruschetta chicken AND had great service!
