We split a dinner and the corn casserole side was delicious . The wait staff was great. We went early so the noise level was OK for us. We will go again.

We went there for our Valentines dinner and I was incredible blown away by the excellent costumer service. We made our reservation through open table and the next day someone from the restaurant staff called me to let me know that they were overbooked and that it was a mistake from the app to take our reservation, at this point I was expecting a cancellation but the lady on the phone very politely suggested that the only seating available was at the bar (which I don’t really like when on a date) I agreed to seating and I’m glad I did, we had and amazing time, the food was delicious and fresh, our waiting staff was super friendly. I will totally comeback.

Something has happened to this place. Food and service have suffered since the last time here about one year ago. Maybe the chef has changed, maybe there is less supervision. We used to like this place but now there are better choices.

I ordered the Cioppino soup and it was delicious and served with a generous amount of seafood. I also ordered the calamari which was prepared dairy free for my daughter. It was also delicious. Thank you to the chef for going the extra mile and accommodating my daughter. Lastly I ordered the spaghetti bolognese and the red fish. My daughter loved the spaghetti and I enjoyed the red fish. The service was excellent. I recommend this restaurant and plan to go back again.

This is a Neighborhood Gem for sure, small and cozy, with excellent service. The food is very good and there's a small bar to the left of the entrance for those who want to dine more casually and have a few glasses of wine. The wine list is OK, but not extensive and could use a brush up. The prices are very modest for the quality of food and service.

We were pleasantly surprised on our first trip to Fratelli's. It is in a strip shopping center with adequate, free parking. There were several rooms, which helped keep the noise level down. The salmon came with mixed vegetables cooked to perfection: slightly crisp, but not crunchy raw. Added was a small portion of pasta. The Boen pinot noir from Oregon was wonderful. The wall murals made you think you were in Italy! The background music was not very loud, so you could have a conversation.

My waitress didn't write down my order correctly. I had the Grilled Redfish with lump crab on top($34 price) . I requested olive oil instead of butter with lemon. I got two small pieces of lump crab and no olive oil with lemon sauce. Fish was very small piece (2-3 ounce weight), very dry and overcooked. Also, the chef didn't remove the gray blood portion located between the exterior skin and the white fish meat.

The food is always excellent at Fratelli's, regardless of what one orders. We just wish they would offer a few higher-end wines, but maybe the crowd has no real interest. (WE do.) Service is excellent, as is self-parking. The crowd is a neighborhood group, mostly 60+, so it's not extremely noisy, even when crowded. It has become one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Houston.

Service was slow. Soup of the day was oddly very sweet. Food quality was ok. Ambiance was not "smart casual" or even "casual casual." Lots of message t-shirts, flip flops and workout/yoga pants at dinner service. Not what we were expecting.

We attempt to visit Fratelli's Ristorante as often as possible. On this occasion, we were fortunate to have Carlos be our server for the evening. The attention to detail and this friendly banter always ensures a delightful evening. As usual, the food items were terrific. We have come to enjoy Fratelli's as the meals and service are consistently superior.

Delightful, peaceful, relaxing, and delicious. Excellent food and service in beautiful surroundings. My favorite part was the QUIET. I could converse with my guest without screaming! (Why do people make so much noise at most restaurants???) If you are a loud person reading this, please don't go to Fratelli's and ruin it.

The starter was great. The wine recommendation was also very good. My main course was not so hot. Too much vegetable and not enough pasta in the Primavera. Should have gone for the Spag/Bol.

This is, first and foremost, a neighborhood restaurant--one in which it seems everyone knows someone or almost everyone. The group tends to be mostly 60+, but the food is exceptional. The wine selection is lacking, but maybe that's what the crowd wants. Service is quick, but (typical of so many restaurants today), almost rude, in that our server continuously interrupted our conversation without as much as an "excuse me."

We have yet to find a dish we don't like, but our favorites include the Roquefort Beef Steak Tomatoes, Wedge Salad, Truffled Mushroom Bisque, Black Pasta, Osso Buco (a special not always available), and Pollo Picatta.

The noise level on weekends is moderate; on weeknights, it's relatively quiet, so it's a pleasant place to have a conversation. Our only complaint was that for our 7:30 PM reservations, they were already out of three desserts.
