Went to this restaurant as a last minute after work dinner with our own wine (which most parties brought in their own wine $20 corkage). Waited to be seated for quite awhile. I believe they were trying, but had a staff front-of-the-house shortage. A large...More

Cozy Reataurant with super friendly, yet professional service; warm and welcoming atmosphere. Quality of the food was just as wonderful and unforgivable!

This is my all time favorite restaurant. The food is great, the owner and workers are like family and the regulars welcome me every time I go there.

I have eaten here many times, It's great for couples, friends and familys. The food is very good, I've never had a bad meal. It's best to have reservations as they do get crowded and the restaurant is on the smaller side. They also have...More

Two friends and I went to Fratello for lunch a couple of months ago, but it was closed even though their website indicated that they serve lunch. Undaunted, and having heard good things about Fratello, I took my wife there for dinner. We arrived at...More
