Overnight stop at airport before flying to the Big Apple decided to dine on site at Fratello’s , wonderful pizza delicious and reasonably priced. Staff attentive and friendly.
Very nice meal, with very good service and friendly staff
Restaurant was freezing cold. It was a cold night but extra heating should have been put on.Spoiled the meal.
Got 2 deals from Wowcher for Fratello's. One deal was a pizza or pasta dish each and a bottle of wine to share for £20. The second deal was a burger each which came as a meal with fries, side salad and coleslaw, and a pint of beer each at £19.50. The food was delicious, hot and plentiful. The service was efficient and servers were friendly and welcoming - especially Abdul who served everything with a smile.
We will definitely be back.
Door wide open freezing, no table set on arrival, abrupt service, chaotic. Food was good. Looked like they’d lost control in the restaurant
Ate here with friends who were flying out from the Airport the next day. Very pleasantly surprised with the Menu selection, speed of service and the overall quality of the food.
Possibly the wrong choice, it was fine.
Wine was nice and cold
Lovely choice of quality food and drink, staff very pleasant and efficient. What's not to like? 😎
We always eat here as part of our overnight stay. Menu is simple, but tasty - we always get the pizzas. Ambient restaurant, nicely lit, and well serviced.
Food was acceptable, but pricy for the quality. Wine was very expensive at around £10 a glass at the bar
Ben was our server, and he was an absolute star. Nothing was any trouble for him. He was polite, courteous and atended to all our needs. The food was incredible, and the portion sizes were more than generous.
7 wines on menu only 2 available, which were grim even at only £22 a bottle. Food was bland, Pizza sent back and removed from bill as not cooked (yes a Pizza) - asked for parmesan it came in a sauce/mustard pot again absaloutely bland. Its been a while since we visited it used to be Italian but very little in the way of Italian choices.
Need some attention to detail on cleaning as sitting looking around cobwebs hanging from cameras and lighting.
Overall not somewhere I would revisit or recommend.
Great meal before our flight to Cyprus, good food good portions
Great food, great service, and very good value. A good place to eat for the airport being so handy :-)
Friendly Staff, fantastic food, very quick service
Lovely meal. Excellent service if a bit too quick between starter garlic bread and main course as would hav3 preferred a slight break but excellent food so no complaints.
Lovely restaurant. Nice decor.
Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating.
Food was good.
My only criticism would be the parking. There were no spaces so we had to park over in the long stay airport car park. 5- 10 min walk. We were given a ticket to get out of the barrier without paying. We inserted the ticket and it came up that we owed £602.50. It was quickly sorted but couldn't help but think there should be a better option when it comes to parking.
Good menu , lovely food helpful staff
Nice food, carb loading before GNR. Decent portions and good service.
We ordered pasta meals one bolognese one carbonara. Lovely large dish of food but the carbonara was quite salty, not good for a race day the next day.
This restaurant is inside the doubletree hotel.
The staff are very friendly and check that everything is good.
As always, good atmosphere, good service and food.
Lovely friendly restaurant. Tastefully decorated in contemporary style. Good menu choice with gluten free options. Friendly service and good value .
Fantastic meal as always. Cannot fault the good, drinks and lovely staff.
Good selection of food dishes, more than just Italian. Quick friendly service. I ordered single drinks but was billed for doubles.
We enjoyed a fabulous family meal at Fratello’s. Gorgeous menu choices. We shared olives, pesto nuts and a bread board for nibbles. All very well priced. Husband had the steak night special which was incredible value. I opted for the gamberoni tagliatelle which was delicious whilst my son chose the caprese pizza. He didn’t quite finish it but was offered a pizza box to take it away. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Always a pleasure to visit Fratello’s.
Enjoyed our meal after a flight.Was disappointed that the menu was smaller than shown on Internet.
Service good although some servers had their masks around their chins.
A great place to eat out at. Most of the time quiet . Covid has taken away the presentation e.g. Table cloths and napkins.
Staff great , as ever.
We very much appreciate them.Thank you.
Service excellent.. food excellent .. great choice ... will highly recommend ... will not hesitate to make a return visit ..
The food was very tasty and the portions were generous, unfortunately I had to leave some of my food due to being full up.
Always good for us. with tables clear due to Covid looks empty. Chef and staff excellent. Thank you all.
Airport restaurant so prices are exorbitant, but they have a captive audience. Gemma was outstanding serving at the bar, taking and delivering food orders. Food was not as good as last time but given the reduced number of guests I guess they got rid of the better chef.
Limited menu available, poor choice for vegetarians. Son's chicken was microwaved and undercooked. Pizza was bland. The restaurant is nice, however empty on the day we visited. Waitress was very friendly and helpful.
Had a wonderful meal at Fratello’s, service was excellent and the food superb. The staff were really good and helpful and helped make the night great. We were staying in the hotel and the restaurant being in the same building was a bonus. Although the menu was restricted due to Covid-19 it still gave a good choice of food.
Probably the most offish and rude waiter I’ve ever had. We dared to ask what the £6.50 sticky toffee pudding came with. Well you think I’d killed his cat. Apparently it’s a ridiculous question, and it came with nothing. That’s right. No cream, custard or ice cream. Also, the menu that the restaurant have loaded on here doesn’t exist. They’re running a budget menu. (Burger and chunky chips, which were actually oven chips, undercooked). Undercooked tasteless pizza. The lettuce in the Caesar salad was limp. Disgusting. The bill was £7 too much, which had to be rectified. Have used this place many times over the last 10 or so years. Can’t say I’ll ever go back.
Overpriced, cold in places and hot in others, don’t have the chickpea and sweet potato curry. £14 for microwaved tasteless mush.
Kids pizza was charged at adult size.
Typical hotel restaurant, double the price it should be and microwaved food.
Shame as the restaurant itself is comfortable and looks nice.
Service was friendly
Food good although overpriced in comparison to other Italian eateries.
Service for starter and main very good waited an extended period for service of dessert.
We were left waiting at the entrance even though staff member had seen us. we had to wait to order drinks and wait a long time to get them. We had to ask to place our food order.
Dull and dowdy interior, in need of a spruce up.
Lamb shank was delicious
Mashed potato mediocre
Carrots were awful
Overall won’t be back in a hurry, but the service from the staff on duty was excellent
Always brilliant. Just reopened....a bit later than others but excellent.We enjoyed it fully.
Always have a good meal here while staying over before flights, unfortunately due to 2 cancelled flights the hotel was heaving therefore the restaurant was too. The wait was inevitable, meal still top notch and the waiting on staff were fighting a losing battle admirably!!
