Food was good, portions a little small. Sommelier was wonderful other than trying to talk us into very expensive bottles of wine (can’t blame him) but we did have 2 pretty good bottles of red. Our server was the only issue. We started with a delightful waiter and somehow ended up with a younger female who didn’t understand much and didn’t even know what ziti was.... I thought she was the waiters assistant but we never saw him again. She was slow but that part was okay because we were enjoying visiting. It was my husbands bday and it was a great place for our celebration.

While we enyoyed the food and the decadent dessert, we especially enjoyed visiting with the wine steward about Texan and Italian wines.

We love Fratelli’s! It’s a great neighborhood Italian restaurant in Spring Branch.

The pasta is excellent. Drinks are great. Service is friendly.

Our personal favorites are the truffle pasta appetizer, crab cake with corn pudding and spaghetti bolognese.

Give them a try. It won’t disappoint.

We decided to sit outside as the weather was nice. It was quiet & comfortable. Tina took wonderful care of us & the food is always amazing! One of our favorite places to meet with friends. They have done a great job with the social distancing inside as well, feels very safe!

In my opinion, Fratelli’s is the best restaurant in Houston. There aren’t enough words to describe how delicious the food is. Barbara, the owner, is as gracious a person that you will ever meet. She treats everyone as if they are her family. The waitstaff are all stupendous. I am always happy to see Rick, the sommelier and Tina, Carmen, Carlos and Jesus. Without a doubt, Fratelli’s is my favorite place to eat!!!

We did have to ask for a waiter to come over and take our order. So the only thing I could say was that the service was not what I’ve had before when I visited Fratellis. But I do know that times are different and I would definitely go back.

Loved my dinner here. Service was very attentive and food was very good. I had pasta primavera and there was a nice variety of vegetables that were perfectly cooked and not overly sauced. Bread was tasty. Dessert was pricey and too rich. Would have been happier with smaller serving. Decor was festive.

We LOVE Fratelli’s. The food, personnel and atmosphere is perfection. Barbara is such a gracious hostess. Jesus, Tina, Carmen and Rick are the greatest. Everyone at Fratelli’s is like family to me! On top of that the food is out of this world. Everything on the menu is spectacular. I don’t have a favorite dish there because everything is unbelievably good.

This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with outstanding food and acceptable prices. They have a bar that seems to always be full when we enter the restaurant. Parking can be somewhat of an issue for many of the stores have signs that say Reserved for ___. We always find something new to try from their specials and they have good wine and some Italian Beers that I like. My wife likes to have lunch at this restaurant with her friends and they all seem to enjoy it.

Give it a try if you can and you should really enjoy the dinner/lunch. They fill up on weekends so be sure to make a reservation thru OpenTable.

You can always tell when a restaurant is run well the owner is close by. At Fratelli's she is the warm and charming hostess who greets you and oversees the operation like a mother hen. That's why the service is excellent, food is great and atmosphere is warm and friendly. A true gem!

The ambience at this place is great. While the staff seemed to make an effort at good service, and were attentive to water refills, there was confusion as to who our server was. I ordered the linguine pescatore and did not expect it to be drowned in cream. Similar dishes in Italy are served in a white wine sauce without cream. Also, it was my birthday and I ordered a tiramisu to celebrate. It was by far the worst tiramisu Ive had in my life. The staff rushed us toward the end of our meal. The next time I want to spend money for authentic Italian food in Houston I will look elsewhere. If your expectations are for Italian American food done well and in a beautiful atmosphere then you will leave happy (that is if you dont mind being rushed by your waiters).

I book on Open TABLE and added that is was a Birthday Celebration.


I called ahead to confirm reservation and that we were celebrating. The lady at the desk, said yes they had received the information about the birthday. After we finished our dinner, I told the waiter that we had a birthday to celebrate. I ask for the dessert menu, we ordered. I expected that the waiter would at least put a candle on the desert for the lady celebrating. He said nothing, evidently the message I gave him and the lady that Ispoke to did not register with either one of them.

I went for my 20th birthday and brought along 7 friends. And though we had a rather large party we were accommodated TREMENDOUSLY! Our waitress was very kind and attentive. And the food was phenomenal. I ate the truffle pasta (offered as an appetizer on the menu though) as my entree and it was one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had! Definitely making the drive to come back again.
