The mushroom soup was very salty;' however, everything else was excellent. A little noisy but part of that was our guest is noisy.

One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants and we try to go there several times each month with friends. Specials are always great; however, due to the demand, they were out last Saturday.

The ambiance of the restaurant is just what you would hope to expect of a local Italian neighborhood restaurant. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. We ended up going with most of what the server had suggested and the daily specials. The food was very good and the overall evening was memorable. We will return. Thank you!

Yes, I would recommend to a friend. In fact, I have ...... several times. We went there tonight to celebrate a birthday (and it was my recommendation). The wine was served attentively, but not smotheringly. The food and service was great as always.

I like the neighborhood atmosphere of Fratelli's; however, I felt like the food was rushed. No time to finish the salad course before the entrée arrived. It was just too fast. Then it was very slow getting the check and, afterwards, getting the waiter's attention to pay the bill.

Reservation was made for our Daughter's Bday. No one said Happy Bday to her until I said it's her B-day. Why ask what is occasion on reservation request if no one reads it. Our Daughter's Bday dinner was disappointing. Food was good, service was just okay and was forced to pay $27 tip. Just not worth it.

Said that it was for a birthday celebration but that fact was never acknowledged by anyone. The owner/manager stopped by several tables and spoke to dinners but not ours even though all dishes had been removed and we were just waiting for the check.

I thought the Chicken Piccata I ordered was full of flavor, however, the chicken breast was slightly overcooked and bordering on dry. I also ordered the wedge salad, which I enjoyed. For those who are gluten free they do have gluten free pasta available. My friend ordered the redfish and it was outstanding. I love the decor, the live music in the bar area was excellent, and the wait staff was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. I think its a charming restaurant and I'd like to visit again in the future.

We both ordered the wedge salad. Divine! One of the best ever. I had the Pasta Carbonara. Average. My husband had the redfish. Very good but a little skimpy on the lump crab meat. Our server was okay. Met expectations.

We are glad to have tried it since the chef from Mark’s arrived. Not sure we’ll be back often.

Fratelli's is a fabulous neighborhood style Italian restaurant, with a welcoming staff, great ambiance, great food and wine menu and an overall great experience. I recommend it highly to anyone and we look for opportunities to come and introduce our friends (no matter what part of the city they live in) to this fine eating experience!!

Fratellis is one of our go to restaurants and we have a wonderful time. Unfortunately, our last visit must have been an off night as the experience was sub-par. The food was bland and the service mediocre.

Chuck (the chef) has left and we hope he didn’t take all of the magic with him. Hopefully this was an anomaly - we will see.

Food was good, environment was nice, service was lacking. My only complaint was the service, our waiter was a little slow to arrive to our table and after taking our order he checked in on us only once and that was to ask if we wanted dessert. Would be willing to try it again, maybe it was just an off night.
