A word from Fraticelli's Italian Grill - Richmond Hill
Fraticelli's Italian Grill and Lounge is driven by one simple principle… create a great Italian impression. Or as the Italians often say… "fare una bella figura."
Like our 13 provinces and territories, Italy has 20 wonderful regions, each one more adamant than the other that they have the best food in the country. Our menu at Fraticelli's is to serve you the best of the best from these wonderful regions. Our steaks are cooked over a high heat wood-fire grill made famous in Tuscany. Our pastas are fresh and our sauces are homemade ranging from the classic northern dish Pappardelle Bolognese to the southern Sicilian style seafood pasta, Spaghetti Pescatore. The pizzas are served Napoletana; style, thin crust and stone baked at 750 degrees. All made with the freshest ingredients available, authenticated with imported Italian plum tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and the best grated cheeses.

    The inattentiveness of our server made this experience terrible and overshadowed the quality of the food and the decor. I have been there 4 times before and decided to take my friends there because we were going to a show and I wanted them to go to a nice restaurant in Richmond Hill. BIG MISTAKE!!!! The server could not remember our drinks order without our help...She disappeared for a long time after our order arrived. Eventually we got the dessert menu but waited for 15 minutes at least before she came back to take our dessert order. After this, we kept trying to get her attention to bring the bill but she ignored us. Needless to say, we were almost late for the show which was supposed to start 3 hours after we got to dinner!!!!

    I would visit again. I ordered one of the risottos and it was outstanding! Looking at the food alone, regardless of the price, was top quality. We also ordered the steak, but it wasn't as good as the ones around the area. Nonetheless, I would give it 4/5 for the piece of steak and quality of their cooking. I wouldn't let these factors doubt this restaurant though!

    I have dined at Fraticelli's a few times now. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service is always friendly. The food is a cut above "factory food" and there are some very good choices on the menu. Fraticelli's is a nice spot for a regular night out or even a minor special occasion.

    Four of us went this past Saturday. As we had a reservation prior to the dinner rush we received very great service. The manager personally greeted our group and checked up on us a few times. He also provided us with complementary appetizers and a dessert for my birthday. The food was great, I ordered the Butternut Squash Ravioli. The restaurant was quiet and decorated in a modern casual atmosphere. The kitchen was also open concept. It was a wonderful evening and I will definitely return.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Food was ok. However, the restaurant was very inflexible. Can't skip onion for a pizza order (was it pre-made?). The door created blinding light whenever someone opened the door as the sun was going down. Told a staff about it, but she wouldn't even investigate to make the situation better. Just said that "hope the sun is going down fast." A manager kept wanting to "straighten" my chair because he thought I was blocking the lane. Polite in his "suggestions," but kept insisting even when I said I needed some time. I feel that he was very pushy.

    Started going when it first opened. Loved the menu and the food. It was all excellent. Menu was then changed: did not like the choices as much and food was not as good . Stopped going for the last year. First visit back since last year. Menu was better, but still not as many choices as when it opened. Food was very good. No lasagna on the menu.....

    We enjoyed dining on the patio even though the evening was slightly cool. I think the clear walls keep the temperature warmer when the sun is out. All 4 of us LOVED our meals...gnocchi, braised beef, salmon and lobster risotto. Server was very good...acccommodating and just the right amount of attention

  • Constant Interuptions
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Great service and customer attention is important but being constantly Interupted is altogether different. The waiter(s) Interupted our conversations more than 2 dozen times - ie do you want this - can I get you that. Surely they could have waited for a pause in the conversation before talking. We were going to tell the manager but decided not to. Most disappointing. The food by the way - was only OK.

    The food was nothing special especially for the price. Lobster pasta was awful and tasteless. Food desperately needed salt and seasoning. Chicken parm was dry. Bruschetta was over powering with garlic. The food has gone downhill big time. I will never go back nor recommend it to anyone. Such as shame as the staff was great and it's a cute place.

    Dined here last Saturday night had an excellent experience. The server was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions based on all of us being vegetarian, she also recommended some great virgin cocktails. Food was very fresh and came out piping hot, portions are big so keep that in mind we probably could've shared the pasta or pizza. Overall, great first experience we will be back!

    Been a regular to Fraticelli's since they open. Even though they've changed the menu a few times, the food quality is still up to standard. It's understandable to have some increase in prices but at the same time, they also tremendously decrease the quantity of food. Very disappointed!!

    We are a family of five adults that had dinner at Fraticelli's. We came early for our reservations; but, were promptly seated. Although the server was very attendant, the order took almost one hour to finally arrive. Also, a few dishes were forgotten and the server had to be reminded. The dishes were good and the portions generous. However, the butternut squash ravioli were excessively sweet (too many pralines! Why pralines?). The ambience was very nice and the surroundings clean and contemporary. Although the restaurant is going through some growing pains, it is well worth a visit.

    We have been visiting Fraticelli's for quite some time now as a lunch spot on Friday's and the service and food has been exceptional. Ken is amazing and we keep asking for him now because of his great personality, attention to detail and remembers what you order. You sometimes don't even have to think except of course when we want to throw him a loop and order something totally different. He's a fantastic member of the team and I hope they show that to him!

    Not your tipical eatery. Had the Italian Wedding Soup to start. Small portion for the price and over salted. Mains were a decent size. Had the veal parm and was served with pasta but no veggie on the side (maybe there was one that could be purchased but weren't asked). Nothing was outstanding.

    Was here for 2 special occasions - to celebrate my wedding anniversary & an early Father's Day. Our server was very attentive in giving us refills on our soft drinks. My son loved the crayons & the kids' menu. Reasonably priced. $6 for a pepperoni pizza and an apple juice. I had seafood risotto, a special feature on the menu. It was alright. The seafood was fresh; however, I didn't think the tomato base went well with the risotto. Hubby had striploin, medium rare. He said he's had better. We were in & out in less than an hour, which was great so it didn't interfere with my son's bedtime.

    Had we known there would be a party of 40 there for a First communion party, we would not have chosen to book my mother-in-law's 71st birthday dinner there, however they chose not to inform us and we had to wait close to an hour for our food. The waiter was super apologetic and so was the manager, yet they didn't comp us anything but the dessert that we didn't even order for the birthday girl. We enjoyed the food once it arrived, but felt that we should have been informed of the very large party that they weren't equipped to handle at the same time as regular guests.

    When I initially booked this restaurant I thought it was an old style Italian restaurant. It was more like a modern day Alice Fazooli's. The caesar salad had no flavour, kind of watery but the rest of the meal was ok. The server was kind, polite and went out of her way to provide very good service.
