Wood burning pizza ovens are always a win but Fratellis out do themselves! Food is amazing service is good and atmosphere matches the Ma style cooking!

Fratelli at the Ferndale Centre is a little hidden away in the eastern corner, and you can easily miss it. The smoking area and non-smoking outside area is great, with a view of the road. It is slightly elevated, so you do not have the street noise or gawkers from the sidewalk, and the trees create a garden atmosphere. The... More

I have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions but this latest visit was for a take-away but the quality of the food was just as good! The menu is extensive and offers options for all tastes including vegetarians. My favourite is the lasagne but friends have enjoyed the Primavera and the pizzas are exceptional. Highly recommend a visit.

Good value Italian restaurant. We've eaten there often and enjoyed reasonable food. We've now had 2 bad meals in a row. What's going on? Had the worst piza ever tonight. Last week my partner found her pasta inedible. Ate a little and left the rest. She was sick the next morning. My pasta was barely ok. Very disapointing.

This was our first time at Fratelli, and we were greatly surprised by the excellent food, friendly hostess and waitress, fantastic and vibey ambience and probably the best Dom Pedro I've had in years! Will definitely recommend this gem!

One of our neighbourhood favourites for a decent pizza or pasta. Great weekend specials on their pizza and pastas and some really excellent waiters. Especially nice and cosy for cold nights!

I went there last night after an absence of about 6 months, and was not disappointed. The service is attentive and helpful. Rob, the owner, and his managers were welcoming and very much hands-on. The food (medium pastas and most pizzas are R49 Monday - Friday) was well prepared and tasty. I've never had a bad meal there, and have... More
