I actually work as an UberEats subcontractor in the area. We tend to avoid the store due to its shambolic service. Fratelli Fresh lack warming lamps so pizza and other food go cold whilst sitting on a table for ~10 mins. Even during non busy times. Service staff lack food timing and tend to avoid customers. What really concerns me... More

Despite continuing negative thoughts about this place since it was taken over, with its reduced menu, prices and some awful food, we ventured there last night - the charming front desk staff - particularly the girls are great - hardly anyone there - amazing - no duck pasta as usual - one of the favorites and I cannot understand why...

The food was up to the usual standard. It has become a little bit more bland since they got taken over (and switched from the old, variable blackboard menu to a fixed printed menu), but the staples are still good. But the flat white I had was a big disappointment – too much water run through a poorly cleaned machine,... More

Paid that much for pasta w/meatballs and pasta with garlic sauce, rolls (have to order), brocollini and carafe of cab/merlot. Taste was bland. Very surprised when the bill was presented. Not going back to that place.

The restaurant entry is the grocery shop by day which is cute but it is confusing to find the counter to pay/be seated. Pick a seat outside to watch the world go by for some entertainment. Seems like a great place to bring kids (judging by the number there the evening we went). Pretty reliably good dishes with generous portions... More

Had dinner there a few nights ago. My husband's ravioli was ok but my pizza was the worst I have ever eaten. The base was burnt and all I could taste was charcoal. When I finally got the wait person's attention, she offered to get a new one for me. It was also burnt and inedible. We won't be going... More

had dinner with friends & fratelli fresh did not disappoint. Staff are friendly, authentically Italian & engaging. Started with drinks & the negroni definitely hit the spot! Lamb ragu, prawn spaghetti, shaved cabbage salad, broccolini were all delicious & generously portioned. The atmosphere friendly, relaxed & comfortable. All in all highly enjoyed by us all & thoroughly recommend this whether... More

Had the crisp polenta chips. First time I had these chips was in Cafe Sopra in Alexandria. They had more of a blue cheese taste compared to the chips at Potts Point. Nice crunch and more creamy however was seeking a more cheesy depth flavour.

Excellent Italian food - largely because Leichhardt has set the bar so low. A little inconsistent tonight. Squid was mixed with old squid, like you get old chips mixed with fresh batch at fast food places- see pic. . Meatballs were dry, and bland. Pizza a bit wet in the middle and deformed.. Normal and small things but 3 in... More

First impressions count: have to enter through some kind of shop/display area, and reach a noisy crowded large space. Table barely big enough to place four menu cards. The menu is totally uninformative, e.g. Black Cod is neither cod nor a black fish. Most other items rely on you knowing the trade words. The above fish itself was good, but... More
