    As with many service/hospitality businesses the staffing levels are challenged, management seemed aware of that evening's challenge based on the number of potential patrons that were turned away. The staff was friendly, accommodating but overwhelmed and seemed confused by whatever system they utilize to stage and direct food to patron. Food was adequate, not amazing, pricing for the quality and portion was at upper end of what would be expected at similar venues; IE CM2, Casa Mia, Pomo's. Chicken Picatta, that evening's special, was underwhelming. Capresa was nice, a bread accompaniment would be nice. Pizza was more moist/ runny than any legitimate Napolitano pizza we have had regardless of geography. Not writing them off yet and will likely return after 60-90 days to allow sufficient time to correct the challenges.

    I thought the food was not very good not the true Italian food that I’m used to having. I’ve had way better piccata I usually like it with veal not chicken. I asked for light dressing on my salad. It was soaked which I couldn’t eat it is it was drenched and dressing. The appetizer the calamari was hard and plump. They do a lot of fried foods which they should learn how to cook more northern Italian and use better quality. I would not be going back to this restaurant.

    Not sure how they prepare their Caesar salad but it’s amazing. We both enjoyed the lasagna and bolognese. If you like a more meatier bolognese sauce - you’ll love theirs.

    I just have to do a review of my favorite Italian restaurant EVER! I guess you can call me a regular! Last Saturday, I returned to Fratelli's with my husband, and a high school friend visiting from out of state. We were quickly seated (easy to make reservations) and placed in the great hands of Brian our server. This was the second time Brian took such amazing care of us. He gives outstanding service, gives wonderful suggestions, and has a genuine smile that lights up the room. Fabio was the host/owner with the most and engaged with our table and made us feel like welcome friends. The food was all utterly amazing from beginning to end. From the bruschetta to the gnocchi, the lasagna (one of my favorites) and the rigatoni. There is no such thing as an average meal here. EVERYTHING is outstanding. Oh wait - I cannot forget the cannoli and the rousing happy birthday song. Just another memorable night at Fratelli's! Of course, we will be back soon! Very soon!

    We love this little restaurant. The pasta is fresh and all dishes are bright and flavorful. Our guests have loved the pizza, and we’ve never had an appetizer we didn’t enjoy. Can’t speak to the entrees as we’ve never ordered one, but they look yummy. Really, can’t make a bad choice here. So very happy they now take reservations on Open Table!

    Was expecting a really good meal. Was recommended by highly good source or so we thought. The pizza tasted like a wet, paper towel. I asked for a side of spaghetti or spaghetti in my cioppino dish and they said they can’t do it. $48 for the Cioppino dish was a ridiculous amount of money for what was served.
