Visited here based on reviews and was not disappointed. Considering the restaurant is on the corner of a busy cross roads, we still enjoyed sitting outside to eat. My sister ordered the smoked aubergine pizza, which was really really tasty. I had another, which wasn't as tasty, but still very good. We had a glass of wine which was in... More

We enjoyed the pizza here and we used Trip Advisor to find this place. The staff very friendly. We are writing this review on the basis of our experience on eating the pizza here but we are confident that the place is good for any other dishes on the menu. Very popular.

I have just eaten the most amazing Diavola pizza, best I've had and fried buffalo mozzarella for starters. My friend had spaghetti carbonara and she said it was how a carbonara should be. I recommend this restaurant to everyone, the staff were friendly, welcoming, professional and helpful in making our choices. The food was delicious!

Freshly baked and then wood fired, served with just the right amount of crispy edges. Then dipped in their olive oil and balsalmic vinegar, it was heavenly. The gnocchi was... More

Finally decided to try this place after walking past it on many occasions. The atmosphere was great, especially since communication was predominately in Italian the whole time we were there. The food was very good, and I especially liked the rapini (broccoli raab) with sausage. Their pizza was also very good, and while I would prefer a little less cheese,... More

Visited Fratelli this week for the first time after visiting Miami many, many times. Wow was I missing something special! The wait staff was fantastic, very attentive and accommodating. The food was absolutely wonderful! The pizza is brick oven cooked and the pasta dishes cooked to perfection. Nice wine selection and beer. I will be back for sure. Give this... More

Consistent quality for pizza and pasta. Mozzarella in carroza, pizza marguerita, bufala mozzarella and tiramisu. All great stuff in a real Italian environment.
