Fratellos Italian Tavern is an American Italian restaurant located in Park Circle featuring Italian comfort cuisine with a menu driven by local seasonal ingredients and a homestyle feel. The word Fratello in Italian refers to fraternity or brother. It is this bond that our proprietor Richard Tuorto and Chef Kevin Bruntz had in mind when they shared favorite family recipes to create a unique dining experience.

    Typical Italian restaurant- large pasta portions, drowned in tomato sauce, and dishes made with olive oil were too heavy on the oil. Lots of food and reasonably priced. Staff shortage front and back resulted in service delays and poorly time food delivery. Server did her best

    Excellent Food Female Wait Staff-Excellent Our original waiter was completely preoccupied with being social, and going outside to bother taking our food order. He didn’t even tell us the nightly specials. My wife had to flag down the waitress to help us. She was great! Bartender-Excellent-Funny and Personable We will go back Big mistake the waiter didn’t do his job, although he begrudgingly apologized later. We tip well, like huge.

    First time to this restaurant! Apps were stuffed mushrooms (great) and calamari with hot and sweet cherry peppers. The sauce and peppers were great but the calamari rings were really tiny…..almost too small to be forked up! Breaded nicely and taste was great…..need to up the anti on the rings and they will be fantastic! Had veal parm with angel hair and eggplant rolatini with pane pasta. First of all…huge portions of veal and pasta which were very good! Rolatini was good but could have used a bit more breading and flavor. Overall…….A very nice dinner for the money! Would definitely return. Cheesecake was fabulous and coffee nicely brewed without being burnt!!!! Great job!

    Maybe just an off night, mixed drinks were off. Brought out bread (which was good) and had to ask for butter which oddly seemed like margarine . The chicken cacciatore was very good, the lasagne was not hot. They say they put a pound of sausage in it, which I believe they do, which makes it a bit too meat heavy for our liking. Again , maybe just an off night

    We tried Fratello's because of the good reviews. It doesn't deserve them! Strange layout of tables. Television at bar and in Dining room. Grey, tough bracoile. Bland food overall. Wait staff was attentive. Will not be back.

    Excellent food & service! Our server, Katie was very knowledgeable about the specials and menu. She was attentive without hovering over us. The food was delicious, well I prepared and presented. There were the two minor inconveniences. The noise level and the very chilly air conditioning. We definitely enjoyed our meal and will be back.

    We hadn't been there in a long time and will most certainly go back again soon ! The food was excellent ! Our waiter, Joe, was friendly, knew how the food was prepared and his recommendation was fantastic ! The chef, Kevin, came out and spoke to us and we had a few good laughs. All in all a very good experience.

    My husband is recovering from surgery and this was our first date-night in a long time. We had lunch at Fratello's before going to the Van Gogh display. Everything was perfect. It was the slow part of the day so it was nice and quiet, which is all we were looking for.

    When we come to Charleston, we always make a point to have dinner at Fratello's. I love the pasta with seafood. The cucumber martini is especially delicious. My husband had the Osso Bucco special. It was delicious. The staff is very friendly and makes dinner very enjoyable. I look forward to the next visit.

    Server was horrible, had an attitude & her words were short, demanding, and sarcastic. I told her my name for the Open Table reservation. There were no customers at all there. I didn’t hear her ask me the time and she asked a 2nd time with an unnecessary tone. Again, no customers so it could’ve easily been reviewed on the system. I almost told my date that we should go but we had both driven at least a half hour to get there. My date asked about fried mozzarella. She said with a tone that they didn’t have mozzarella sticks. He asked about blackened chicken w/Fettuccine Alfredo. She laughed and said this is an Italian restaurant & that they don’t have blackened chicken. He told her that he’s managed Italian restaurants before & they’ve had that so it’s not unusual. She said she didn’t know. After she started walking away, we agreed on leaving. He called her back over before she placed the order & informed her that we were leaving. He told her that there’s no need to have that attitude & be sarcastic. She said they treat her like that in the kitchen so she does it. Then, she started crying & saying that she’s only been there for 2 weeks. I asked the guys outside if the manager was around. Donnie told me he’s the manager & Josh also introduced himself. I told them the story. Donnie said he would talk to the owner. Josh told me to see him at the bar the next time & he’ll take care of me. That’s a nice gesture especially after the bad experience, time, drive, & no food. The owner James called & I told him the story. He mention that he heard 3 different stories. His words made me feel like he didn’t believe what I said so I told him to check the cameras and he can probably see her demeanor. No employees witnessed what happened. I’m not sure what other story there is other than what I told Donnie and Josh outside. The owner didn’t offer anything except that he will be talking to the server and an apology. I’ve been here many times. Not at all what I expected.
