    This is a restaurant with character and good food. Menu is very complete, cocktails were well Made and our server was very accommodating and efficient. The lemon basil vinaigrette dressing was so delicious and my salmon dish was very tasty , yet maybe a little boring looking on the plate. Friends had pasta dishes and all were good- only my friends pizza was warm rather than hot. Good flavors and very nice evening.

    A favorite place to eat in Appleton. Good food. Good service and beautiful space to talk and enjoy friends and family. The bar is worth arriving early and sipping a specialty cocktail to take in the view of the dam and the fast moving water. The glass art throughout the space is pretty cool.

    We had a reservation and were seated right away. The server was polite, food and drinks were excellent and brought in a reasonable amount of time. View probably would have been really nice since it's right on the river but it was dark. The server heard my husband mention that we should get dessert since he didn't get me a birthday cake so he brought our dessert with a big sparkler in it :).

    We happened upon Fratellos on Open Table when we were in town for a day. The service was top notch (hostess, server, runner & manager included), the view an unexpected treat, the atmosphere warm & inviting, and the menu impressive (including a myriad of GF options). My food allergies were addressed with the utmost respect & obvious knowledge/training. We'll make other day trips to the area in the future just to revisit Fratellos!

    Great ambience initially with a 4:30 booking time. By the time we left an older set of couples that had been at the bar were seated beside us and quite loud. Server was excellent and kind, food was fresh, tasteful, and worth every penny. The view is amazing.

    We had truffle fries for appetizers and there were so many fries. The wine was pricey though. The main entree I had was short rib with pasta and wine cream sauce it was amazing. Our server was great. She gave us the right amount of attention. We love going here!

    We were traveling to the Green Bay area for the Kansas City Chiefs/Green Bay game and needed to find a nice restaurant after a long day of traveling. We hit the jackpot with Fratellos. The menu has variety and the biggest problem we encountered was that everything sounded good. We had the cheese curds and BamBam shrimp for appetizers. The curds were good, but not special. The shrimp was excellent. Entrees at our table included the filet, short rib pappardelle, and the almond crusted walleye. The walleye was good, but the other two entrees gave me food envy. Their bar had a lot of good options whether local beer, wine, or mixed drinks. Unfortunately we did not have enough room for dessert. Every one of the desserts looked great so we will have to try those the next time we are in Appleton.
