Never had a bad meal, never had bad service and never had a bad dessert ( all desserts are made by a family member and are delish). I've been here about 6 times in the last year and recommend it all the time.

Love the booths for the COVID situation. Food was good. I had the duck which was good. Just wish the fat was crispy. The risotto was creamy and delicious. Good service. Love Fratetello's each time I go. Old school which is just fine by me.

We were given water right away. Then watched as they set up the bar. Stale bread arrived about 15 minutes later. Finally our order was taken after another 15 minutes. The oysters were overwhelmed with rosemary and the shrimp was overcooked. The arrugala was really good. Our server was nice but the bar set up could have deferred to serving the few tables

We have not been to Fratello’s in quite a while due to COVID & being Snow-Birds, but they did not disappoint. We started our dinner with the ‘always’ delicious Artichokes Francese & they were even better than we remembered! My husband ordered the extremely juicy double pork chop & I thoroughly enjoyed GF pasta with Bolognese sauce- half the pork chop will be lunch tomorrow- excellent!!
We were seated in the back room with only one other couple who were 2 tables away- the restaurant seemed to do everything & more required of them to avoid any type of virus-related contamination.
We will be returning with friends this weekend!

I have been there a few times before for different reason and every time I have a had a great server, a pleasant hostess and great food and great company. If I can recommend anything it is the pumpkin cheesecake crumb. I don't even really have dessert and I don't even like pumpkin but love this dessert ( and I heard it is made by the mother of the owner )

Restaurant Week menu was diverse and appealing and food quality didn’t disappoint, making it a great value. Service was friendly and attentive.

COVID precautions were a little lax: booths on both sides were occupied and, for a time, an unmasked party of 3 stood opposite our booth near the bar, between/behind seated diners.

Fratello’s is my go to restaurant at the Jersey Shore. The Italian food is great, as are the meat dishes, but they shine with fish dishes. Not Just the usual Jersey Shore shrimp, scallops, etc Fried, Broiled, Francois, but With imagination and delicious sauces. And always, the best Jersey Shore Restaurant week menu.

Waitress was a bit snarky
Entrees took a long time
Neither person thought steak was tasty
Halibut and OssoBucco was delicious
1 member with seafood allergy asked that shrimp be on a separate plate, so we could enjoy and she not have an allergic reaction, Waitress didn't seem to want to accommodate that and it wasnt....she cut off a significant portion of her steak that was in contact with shrimp

Always appreciate the salad with dinner, super!
Our waitress was great and with all going on it was nice to sit and relax knowing the staff was doing all they could to disinfect and still put out their usual great dinners.

Be well.

Been going here for years... Food always great... this time I got Veal Saltembuca and it was amazing ... many thin pounded cutlets with prosciutto provolone spinach and tasty brown sauce... took home enough leftovers for a second meal... my wife had the hot antipasto appetizers for dinner... very good.... especially the egg plant rollatini and artichokes ...my son got Filet Mignon Dr Chris rare with shrimp ... fantastic... his girl got Zuppa di pesce ... also excellent... I'll be back again soon !!!! Leigh Kirby
