Thank goodness the food was very good because the service was below average. Maybe short handed but on a Saturday night! Party next to us was extremely loud, obnoxious and continuously cursing. Staff did not quiet them down at all but did apologize for their behavior. Probably be back because the food was very good but maybe try a different night. We’ll see.

The food and the service were excellent! We had a table around the outside of the bar which was lively. It was a bit loud but we were able to have have a conversation with no problem. The cocktails were excellent and although not lengthy, the wine list had a good selection. Will definitely go again and try both sitting at the bar as well as the main dining room.

Food very bland. Salad dressings runny and too much. Grilled chicken on salads and in pasta dishes served whole. Too difficult to cut up. Too much sauce on Rigatoni Bolognese. Mushy roasted peppers. Servers too busy, maybe not enough of them. Bar area too much hussle from other diners at tables getting served right behind you. Kids menu ok.

Very good food at a good price. Went with friends for restaurant week. Had the eggplant appetizer which was delicious. Steak was a littl over done for medium rare but still good. Service was friendly and efficient.

Went for the early bird dinner and they did not disappoint. We were served an appetizer of bruschetta which was a perfect start to our dinner. Our meal came with a very fresh, large, cold and crispy salad. Chicken francese served with pasta and Chicken marsala served with potato and vegetables were both very good and extremely large portions.

Entree includes salad and bruschetta. Authentic Italian food is always fresh and delicious. Easy to find parking close by. I noticed Fratello offers a great price for early dinner (order before 5 p.m.) though I never come this early.

I was very disappointed this time. Service was very slow and the restaurant didn't seem that busy being it was after the height of the summer season. I have had some very good meals at this restaurant but this time it was off the mark.

You're always welcome at Fratello's. No matter how busy they are, you always feel like the most important guest. That, combined with the great food (so many choices), do try the Flounder Francaise, and the efficiency of the staff make every visit a pleasure.

Came for a reservation and still had to wait. Server was pretty good but timing was off as was overall quality of food. Essentially fancy pizza place type Italian red sauce fare. Steak my son ordered was not well prepared. Was pricy for what it was. Not rushing back.

Overall was happy with our experience but the clams casino I had for an appetizer were so small I needed a magnifying glass to find them on the plate. And they were not that good. The stuffed scallops were excellent, but the tomatoes on the salads were horrible. The jumbo shrimp salad had nice size shrimp, great roasted peppers and mozzarella, and the honey Dijon dressing was excellent. The bar scene is excellent as well and our service was top notch
