When we first moved to Oceanside I joked about buying a house without first knowing if there was a good place for pizza nearby. Being from NYC, I can get pretty fussy about my pizza. Well there was no need to worry. Fratelli's is great for pizza and just about anything else on their menu. It has become our go to place for the night before we leave on a vacation and the night we return. Great friendly serivce; good beer and wine selection; and wonderful Italian food. We have recommneded it to many freinds and they have all agreed that it is a wonderful retaurant.

We celebrated a birthday in the patio. The cheese ravioli was delicious as was the eggplant parmigiana. Service was very good and the patio is pet friendly. We had a fun time. Thanks Fratelli's. We will be back.

This a old Italian family style restaurant - the place has a warm feel, but it needs an upgrade for sure - we were disappointed with the calamari - too fried unfortunately but the pasta that we had was good ...

Easy, comfortable spot with OUTSTANDING food selections that deliver. Fine craft ale/beer(Italian too) and sampling house wine was more than decent. 6 guys for lunch. Every plate cleaned and beverages drained. Easy conversation. Pleased. Especially pleased with the bill. Great food for trivial money. Who needs ambiance in good company? So, it's in a mini-mall? So what. Great place.

The service was great and the staff was friendly. The pizza and spaghetti were so good. We’ve been here twice, since we moved to the area, and we’ve decided that this is our favorite Italian eatery in Oceanside.

Fratelli's as always didn't disappoint. It's our new neighborhood's best restaurant. We went there for a quiet late lunch on New Year's eve. Excellent food and service. The ambience is very pleasant - the look, nice old music not too loud, easy to mantain a conversation.
Since we recently moved to this area and discovered Fratelli's, we always go there for special events, or get together with friends there.

We were looking for delicious Italian food and a great atmosphere and we found it at Fratelli’s. We also found great service and quality at Fratelli’s. We are new to the area and have tried other Italian restaurants but we are making Fratelli’s our go to place. Looking forward to trying everything on the menu.

Good food and service. I had a 9PM reservation and I'm glad they were open as I don't like crowds. Some music would help the ambience, more plants and decor too would be nice.

Food is good. I prefer smooth style sauce, not chopped tomatoes, and light on the cheese.
I had the eggplant parmiggiana which was very tasty. It could use a bigger size dish and I'd recommend they slice the eggplant thinner and on the side of the angel hair.

Enjoyable!

This was our first visit to Fratelli's. A friend once said it was her favorite Italian place in all of Oceanside. I have to agree. It was a pleasant evening. The food was amazing! Factoring in location, staff and settings. You'll make Fratelli's a Go-To choice when dinning out.

We were in the San Diego area as part of celebrating my eightieth birthday. We went to Fratelli's because years ago my wife and I often ended up at a restaurant in Englewood, Colorado named Fratelli's. Turns out that one is closed and this one has no known connection but turned out to be very similar and equally good. Our waitperson (Minitsa---sp?) was super and the food quite good. We guessed we were the only non-locals in the place and that's always a good sign.
