We have been going to Fratello's for years and each time it seems to be lacking more and more. On our last visit we were a table of four. Every water glass was disgustingly dirty. Almost felt like just getting up and leaving. I'm sure...More

Fratello's is all about the neighborhood! Food is solid and service is good. It's more about being comfortable and hanging out to relax. If you go for dinner, they offer a lot of food.....a little bruschetta to start on the house, then order your dinner...More

Response from Chris D | Property representative | Reviewed this property |
Fratello's offers gluten free pasta. Linguini and penne. And both are very good. We did a lot of sampling to get this correct. We also have a few salads and many seafood dishes that are gluten free.
A few of us can't eat anything with sauces. Do you have any fish or chicken dishes that can be grilled?
