    Have been there twice. The pizza is very good. However the salads, and the chicken dish as well as the Linguini and Clam sauce was just fair. Would go back only for pizza. We live in the neighborhood, and was very disappointed in the food, as well as the prices.

    We ordered a bottle of wine, an two different fish dishes. The food came out cold, the service was awful-- completely inattentive. We asked for something four times. They never came back to ask for beverage refills or to pour the wine. They simply didn't care. We will not be back.

    The stuffed clams were okay with a bit of an off taste. Two of us had veal parmigiana, for which the first time it was burned and the second time it was not fully cooked. The restaurant did the right thing by removing both dishes from the check and providing a two trays of dessert for us. One person ordered the salmon in balsamic vinagrette, and it was very much enjoyed. The place was almost full, which made it difficult at times to hear each other. The service was good and attentive.

    Fratelli is truly a neighborhood gem. There are other pizza places in the area that tend to be crowded and noisy. Fratelli is spacious, inviting and kid friendly. Their pizza and salad are very good, fairly priced, and satisfying. It's a favorite of nearby hospital employees for lunch. It has never disappointed. The waitstaff is attentive and efficient. Although it was a busy Friday evening on my last visit, my friend and I were not rushed out. We comfortably lingered over an after dinner coffee.

    We were expecting a more authentic Italian experience overall and did not get this although the service was good and the food decent except for the marguerite pizza, which barely had an sauce and no basil, we had to ask for this. Also, there is no "Wine Bar", just a wine list, so this part is misrepresented. Would not rush back...

    On our last night in NYC we were tired. We did a little research on the immediate neighborhood and settled on this outstanding restaurant. As promised in another review the bread was great and crunchy. Service was perfect, ower(s) introduced themselves and were working hard! We were seated immediately for a 8:15 reservation.

    I have been a regular at Fratelli's, ever since my mom moved into a nursing home nearby. The staff and management are always welcoming, accommodating, friendly, and thoughtful. I take my mom there from time to time, and they always welcome us and accommodate her wheelchair, and make us feel at home. They do the same for families with young children. The food is good and the atmosphere is perfect for groups- especially for families with kids and/or with older adults. I recommend this place.

    My Husband and I are becoming Friday night regulars here because the food is always delicious but the staff is also just so friendly and accommodating! We are never disappointed. It's a casual spot, but it's still intimate and a nice dinner out. Everything on the menu is good- the pizza, salads, pastas- all of it! I highly recommend this as a great neighborhood spot!

    Fratelli is our personal neighborhood gem. The staff is both welcoming and attentive. It is NOT JUST an upscale pizzeria - all their Italian meals are woderfully delicious. Specials change daily so boredom never ensues. And for those who are gluten free, Fratelli can make any pizza or pasta dish (or any of their other main dishes)gluten free. The wine list is both varied and reasonable. Don't forget to order their meatballs in addition to whatever else you're getting - you will thank me!
