Fratello's food remains delicious! I really like this restaurant, but I haven't gone on a busy Saturday before this time. It was extremely loud and we couldn't have a conversation. Our server was friendly and helpful but was clearly overworked. I suppose they were short staffed because our appetizers and main courses took a very long time coming out (although they were served piping hot).
I'm sure the wait had nothing to do with the server.
I think for us, we'll stick to Sunday- Thursday when we come here again.

Friendly courteous staff that make you feel welcomed. Great variety of offerings, great food, ample portion size. Calamari is exceptional...light crispy and not over cooked. Music on Thursdays and Fridays is a terrific
Bonus!

Staff was awesome. The food was...good, some dishes far better than others - stick to safer choices, would be my advice. The restaurant is loud, however and conversation was difficult.

The hostess there is the nicest woman. Always has a smile on her face. Sat us before our reservation without any problems. We’ve been there several times now & every time the owner has stopped at our table to greet us. Nice place with nice people

Service was very good, the food is delicious. The flounder francaise over penne, huge portion was scrumptious. Husband had veal francaise with a side of pasta, he said it was delicious. We were seated in the bar area, it's a bit noisy, which was expected, the restaurant is busy, definitely suggest making reservations. No disappointments here the food is consistently good, great variety, specials too.

Tables surround the bar which was busy I'm assuming due to the holiday season. The food was good, they definitely give amble portions and keep the bread coming as needed.

Went to Fratello's and ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. Much to choose from. I chose for appetizer Jodee's Little Purses which were a great start, for an entrée Wild Boar Osso Bucco, Delicious and there was plenty. For dessert Carrot cake not so good, seemed dry and tasteless. We had to wait a little long for our meals. We have been here before and did not have that problem. I find the food to be outstanding. Never had a bad meal. Love the ambiance. Looking forward to my next meal at Fratello's.

Service very slow tonight. Might be the restaurant week was too much for them. Food was good. Desert were average. Several parties made it too noisy to be enjoyable. This was not a typical experience at this restaurant.

Wonderful service. I had the pork chop Murphy. It had a wonderful taste & was very tender. My companion had the flounder francaise which he said was the best he ever had. We will definitely go back.

The food was utterly fabulous along with the service at the bar, with Jackie, and at the table too. The band, The Zukes, was the best I've heard in a long time. Great time!

Our waitress, Kitty, was great. Unfortunately our table of 4 was surrounded by two large, noisy parties. Hostess claimed no other table was available when there were many empty booths. We had a 6:15 reservation, very early on a Saturday. She could have been handled it better.
