We went on wine Wednesday during Happy Hour, 1/2 price bottle (All Day). We chose the Butterfield Sauv Blanc. It was soooooooooooooooooo good, Dry & crisp.

For a starter, we chose the Calamari, best we have Ever had.

For dinner, wife chose the Meatballs al Forno. Very tasty. I had the Chicken Piccata, only need a fork to cut the chicken. Very tasty.

Then tried the Tiramisu for desert: Best we have Ever had.

Service was Awesome.

This is our go-to restaurant. We're treated like family by all the staff, and we've been going there since they opened. LOVE the atmosphere, the food, the staff, etc. You can tell they truly operate as a team. Not nearly enough places have this, and it's a true pleasure to encounter. We'll keep coming back time and time again. Love you guys!

One of our favorite restaurants. A must try! Their bread and pesto dipping sauce is phenomenal. We have tried every pizza and it's hard to pick a favorite. Honestly, we have never had a dish we didn't like. And don't forget to get the cannolis!

It is SOOOOO good to be able to come back here. Those repairs took MUCH too long for my taste! Glad to see them open, and a full house — looks like we're not the only ones who feel that way.

Brandon and team are great people operating a great restaurant. The food, the feel, everything. Feels like coming home every time we dine here. Which will be often (again) now that they're back!

We love Fratelli’s! We couldn’t wait for the re-Grand Opening! The service and food were just as amazing as we remembered it to be so we’ll be back to our delicious Italian dinners on the regular again. I love the reserve a table ahead of time aspect because this place gets busy! And for good reason! We’ll be back again soon!

Our experience wasn’t good because there was no experience. We made our Saturday evening res through opentable, the restaurant was closed due to maintenance issues, yet no one informed us! Not the restaurant nor Opentable, highly unprofessional!

My husband and I frequent there often. The food is amazing and the friendly staff go out of their way to your visit special. Great Wednesday wine special too! We Love the bread they serve before the meal. Of course their pasta’s excellent, but if you like fish give the salmon a try...you won’t be disappointed.

This was our first visit to this location as we had been regular patrons of the since closed Fratelli's in San Marcos. Appetizer (bruschetta with goat cheese) was outstanding as was the service. Our entrees were good with large portions. Not bad, but we sure do miss the proximity of the San Marcos location.

I had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Though it was far from home it was well worth the trip. Staff was friendly and helpful while ordering. The manager Daniel and our waiter Ruby showed exceptional service. Food was really good, pepperoni pinwheel was my favorite. We also order penne pesto pasta with chicken and shrimp and calamari. I highly recommend all of it. The bread and dip brought to the table is dangerously delicious so be careful not to stuff yourself with it. Will definitely be back.

Fratelli's is one of my favorite Italian restaurants...family owned, delicious food, great service. Our only disappointment was that they no longer offer blue cheese dressing. Nothing that would keep us away, of course, but they always had excellent blue cheese!

Food and service were great. Restaurant was a little noisy (three persons in our group are hearing impaired). We should have asked for a table in the quietest part of the restaurant or eaten in the patio. Great place to eat!

Met friends from the east coast and chose this place from the reviews as it’s halfway from Santa Ana and San Diego
End of a strip mall but felt like a stand alone Italian
We all very much enjoyed our food and service
Typical Italian fare,well prepared and good value.
No complaints and would return for similar rendezvous

The food was excellent! Some of the best Italian food we had had. The spicing was wonderful and the ingredients were cooked properly, the pasta not overdone, just right. We had absolutely no complaints about the food or the service.. And the atmosphere was very comfortable and cozy.
The only complaint is a small one and it may have been due to not enough staff this Memorial Day weekend.
We had to wait for an hour for our food, and there were only the three of us. But we are planning to come back, the food is THAT good!

You've changed your Bruschetta a few times now. None of my party of 5 really cared for it. Not everyone is a fan of goat cheese. And when you have a winning combination of ingredients to start with, it's overkill. Sometimes keeping it simple is best.

Definitely worth a visit. Ignore the strip mall location. The interior is tasteful, comfortable, and very quiet. It was a nice change to be able to have a conversation without shouting. Despite the menu, this is not typical "red-sauce" dining, either. The food is lovingly prepared and doesn't look like it was thrown together at the last minute.

The lasagna is outstanding and if you ask nicely, you can get some extra bolognese sauce to blot up with the foccacia. There was a special on the day we went: scallops on risotto. The scallops were perfectly seared without being left either raw or rubbery and the risotto was creamy and actually tasted of more than just rice.

The service was prompt and polite and our glasses never got below half-full.

Came here to meet friends, found a bustling neighborhood Italian place - food is good, nice atmosphere, and pleasant and efficient servers. This is not "gourmet" Italian dining, but everything is fresh and well prepared - Italian/American is more like it. One person at the table got Pizza, and liked it; I got a pasta dish with added shrimp that was tasty. Good beer and wine selection. If I lived nearby I'd probably go back. Overall a good neighborhood eatery.

I came down last month from San Jose to visit my girlfriend and we ended up at Fratelli's restaurant. I was impressed by just about everything, service, food quality, etc... that we came back the next night. I was down this past weekend and had made a reservation at another restaurant but ended up cancelling it to go to Fratelli's again. Yes it's that good. I can honestly say that from now on anytime I go down there I will be going here at least once on my visit.
