I love Fratello's. You will never go wrong by ordering any special (chicken, shrimp or veal fratello) that is on their menu. I chose the shrimp fratello and it is mouthwatering. A lovely (kind of old school) restaurant where good food is guaranteed!

My mom, wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Fratello last night. We have been going to this local restraint for 10 years when we visit my Mom in Bay Village. My mom has scallops Fratello, my wife had two appetizers--the crab cakes (huge and yummy) and the egg plant. I had the veal Fratello. We recommend getting at... More

Great service for a quaint restaurant where they come to know you by name. Food quantity is very generous and the marinara sauce is delicious. No need to get dressed up, although you feel special with the white linen tablecloth.

Slow service, sauce on pasta not very good. No salad included with dinner. tiny bread basket, had to keep asking for more when we COULD find our absent waiter. Over priced for what you get. I'll stick with our favorite, Corsos! Good price, salad or soup included, delicious hefty bread portion, excellent service, great authentic Italian sauce and served in... More

We were trying to find a different restaurant for dinner on Friday night at the last minute. On line reviews looked good so we headed to Fratello's for our first visit. We will go back again. We were in no particular hurry. We got there at peak time on Friday evening. We were told the wait was about 20 minutes.... More

We went to Fratellos when we got the news that we finally got out home! This is a very quaint upscale restaurant. Their food is outstanding, especially the shrimp Fratello. Their sauce is wonderful. I have been here many times. I have never had a bad meal here!

Fratello's food and service is exceptional! I probably eat there (or take out!) at least a dozen times a year for over 10 years. My favorite dish is Chicken Fratello, a more delicious take on piccata, but my friends and I rave about other dishes too. I often eat Italian when I travel, but none have come close to Fratello's.

Food was really good. Our waiter was perfect. Problem was when we got close to finishing our meal, servers kept coming by wanting to take our plate. Over and over and over.Like they were ready for us to go and we still weren't finished. Rush rush rush. Not how you treat customers. We were visiting my father and decided to... More

We went here one night after a long exhausting day. It's a small place, nothing fancy but it was packed. The night we were here, they were a little understaffed and service was a little slow but we arrived during the peak dining time. The menu is typical Italian, except when it came to the specials. Their special the night... More

Great twists to some classic American and Italian fare. Attentive and knowledgeable staff, great wine list, reasonable prices, food well prepared, what more could you ask for.
