    We made reservation based on location, our desire for a good Italian meal, and Open Table reviews. It was within walking distance of J.W.Marriott Marquise Hotel, where we were staying. It wasn't crowded and manager gave us our choice of tables, which we appreciated. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Everything we ordered was delicious. Will go back the next time we are in Miami. Only complaint: On line information did not indicate that menu was Southern Italian; we were expecting Northern style dishes, which we prefer.

    It took me a while to actually get in the place because of the parking in construction area of downtown. The service was awesome and the food was awesome also, we were greeted by the owner who was very pleasant. The bread with the sauce started the night well, we ordered a pizze for appetizer thin and crispy followed by the Veal parm ooooh awesome cooked perfect some good wine and a machiatto to finish a lovely experience. Defenitely coming for more!

    My wife and I dined at Fratelli's on a Friday evening in February having reserved online. The place was busy and a little noisy, but the ambiance was great. Our server (Italian ?) was a polite but not overly friendly. Service however was quick and efficient. The food is what stood out. It was one of the best Italian meals we've had, and at a reasonable price. We will definitely be back!

    Although we had a reservation, there was no 4-top available. In true Italian style, this was no problem for the staff as they moved tables and chairs all around the room to make space for us. My dining companions are all devotees of Italian cuisine and thought that the food was authentic and delicious. Portions are very large. Wine list is somewhat limited. Street parking in the same block was readily available.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/7/2012
    The crust of the quattro formaggi pizza was perfectly thin and crisp while holding up to a lot of cheese. The pappardelle pasta had a just the right amount of goat cheese to add a creaminess to the sauce but not overpower it. The carpaccio has a mild lemony sauce on the side that I recommend drizzling over the entire dish.

    I found this restaurant simply by using Google Maps - I was looking for a restaurant convenient to the Hyatt Regency, which would be perfect for a low-key family meal. My expectations were certainly exceeded! The service was attentive without being overbearing and the food was first-class. The pizza was delicious. I would certainly recommend this to any friends looking for restaurant tips in Miami downtown. A wonderful surprise.

    Coming from an italian family, and being a professional cook myself, I can appreciate the great quality and authentic flavor of this precious gem that is Fratelli Milano. They were able to combine the heart and soul of home food with enough elegance to appeal greatly to gourmet standards as innovative and delicious. I'm glad I went there, had a great meal, wine and dessert, as well as a great experience throughout the very kind and attentive service we received. I highly recommend it!
