Meal was good. Portions were very small for the price. $3 add on salad was a small pile of greens, sprinkle of feta and dressing. Table was next to a window with a beautiful view, but over the top of an air vent that was blowing frigid air. So cold!! Couldn’t wait to leave so we could warm up. Server was excellent and drinks were good even though they were out of the one specialty cocktail that we wanted to order.

My husband and I went here for Valentine’s Day. We have been here before and I have always had excellent food and service. This particular day was an exception. We ordered drinks, and then our food. The food came and it was just OK. The value definitely did not match the price on the menu. Our server came back and asked my husband if he wanted another drink, which he did. She then promptly left without asking me if I wanted another drink. She brought his drink back and when I tried to get her attention to order another drink, she was already gone. She showed up again to drop off our bill without asking if there was anything else we wanted. We practically had to jump up and down in front of her so I could order a second drink and dessert. It was definitely not worth $128. Disappointing.

Fratellos is our go to anniversary venue and as always they did not disappoint us. Our waiter was very attentive and went out of his way to help with our wine selection, among other things. The menu and ambiance are tops in the the valley as far as we are concerned!

Server was great! Atmosphere was also great but the entrees were just average. Scallops were gray and over cooked and filet was cut in half to get it to cook more which made it a bit tough. Meatball app was delicious and so was dessert!

2 small Scallops were not seared and not seasoned and rubbery. Steak was not seasoned and the roasted potatoes were microwaved then diced and served with absolutely no color at all. Still pure white. Very unappealing. Very very disappointed! $32 for a meal I didn’t eat.

Excellent as always. Love this restaurant, food is amazing, service top notch. Great views of the rivers and the ambience is just right.

Don't hesitate to dine in. They have taken COVID 19 very serious. Tables are well spaced out. All employees have masks on. Even the waiter kept his distance.

Haven't been out to eat in a long time, we felt completely safe!!

Three out of 4 ordered salads. They were nothing special, a bit tasteless. For over $10 per salad, they were not a good deal. The view of the river and the restaurant itself was great. Maybe a new chef or at least new recipes would be the answer to the problem. This was my first time and the same for the other 3 people. I will try again sometime in the future, but not for some time. Would not be a strong recommendation.

We really like Fratellos and especially being able to eat outside. Italian beef sandwich was excellent and the chicken Marsala was very good our son had steak and scallops. Don’t know what the seasonings were, but it had a metallic taste. My husband heated the leftovers and didn’t like the taste either. Would not recommend ordering it.

Excellent service! Delicious food! Fabulous view from the patio! My only issue was the noise level of the live music. The talent was good, but the sound was turned up so high that my friends and I couldn’t hear each other talk. And the entertainment was just a gal and her guitar, so the excessive volume was out of place (IMHO).

I visit the area once per year and this is my must have dinner. The menu is extensive and I've never had anything but excellent food here. The service is also outstanding. Given the pandemic regulations and Tim,e of year, we were able to eat outside on the patio overlooking the Fox River. All in all a splendid experience. We had the salmon and tomato bisque.

I had the chicken Marsala with gluten-free fettuccine noodles. It was a very blah-looking plate. Chicken tasted fine but the noodles were mushy and not flavorful at all. My friend’s steak wasn’t seasoned at all. Very bland tasting.

Guests from out of town were with us. While the food was tasteful, It WAs not even slightly warm? Three out of four of our entrees! They offered to redo the dishes, but we declined. Very disappointed. Manager and chef reported could be a outside vent problem in the kitchen? Should have given us a gift card to return instead of a free dessert, now I’m afraid to go back. Don’t like lukewarm dinners.

We arrived a little early and were able easily to find a place on the terrace overlooking the Fox River. It was a glorious, sunny day and the pelicans were landing and taking off from the water the whole time.

The drinks were refreshing, the seafood omelet special was delicious, the service was prompt, and the server was personable and helpful. Just what we were hoping for.

Sat out on the beautiful patio. Was very happy with the covid safety measures! Waiter wore a mask, wrapped utensils, no contact menu. The food was delicious and we enjoyed watching the pelicans in the river. Waiter was very attentive. EXCELLENT.

Fratellos has a great atmosphere but their food is definitely sub-par for that nice of a place. Lacking flavors, texture, etc. it was obvious their food is not fresh and just thawed/reheated. Servers didn't have knowledge of their own wine list, so I put that on management to make sure they are trained properly. We'll probably go back just because of the venue, but we'll order just a burger or appetizer next time.

Our group decided to eat on the patio. The table we chose with less sun exposure about 4:30pm was dirty with tomato small chunks, etc in the grate despite few diners and other tables open. As the sun moved and we became more exposed the sun was intense...…expected for out door seating. The food was very good with two of us having pizzas (2), one a sandwich and one spaghetti with meatballs . The view was beautiful! We will visit the patio again.
