Extremely noisy, staff was excellent and I had a problem with my meal and they discounted it more than I expected. If it wasn’t for the noise we would dine there regularly

First of all they didn’t have our booking as it didn’t male it through from the portal despite being made 4 hours prior.

We went for the Italian feast with drinks. The first round of drinks took 35 minutes to arrive. We had to chase everything we ordered, right up to desert.

Very disappointing

Fratelli was recommended by our Tour Guide and it happened to be a very good recommendation. Pasta and pizza were both very good. The service was also very good. Tis restaurant is well located in the middle of many Sydney featured areas.

Enjoyed this restaurant just as much as the sister restaurant in Darling harbour we dined at a couple of weeks ago. Will definitely use again when in the Circular Quay area.

It was a work farewell. I had booked the table and they weren’t aware of it. I don’t think it was their fault but the app might have not advised them.

As expected for a pre theatre dinner. Buzzing atmosphere and quick service. Possibly too loud for some?! Food good.

The service on this occasion was very poor. We waited a considerable time for food to arrive even while other tables around us (who all arrived after us) were served their entrees and mains first. No updates from the wait person

We arrived on time and had to queue 15 mi S before we could get to our table - the restaurant was chaotic . Service slow to start but food arrived quickly . Toilets dirty - I am in no hurry to return

The food and service always hits the spot at Fratelli Fresh restaurants. I gave our experience a low rating because the back area where we were seating had very poor acoustics. They should consider the old egg boxes placed under chairs trick and soft furnishings and some improved mood lighting as it’s a very stark area.

Very noisy but food good. Service slow. No record of open table booking. I had to show confirmation and luckily they found us a table on a very busy night.

We ordered 4 things off the menu and were looking forward to grazing over antipasti, primo and secondi. We were disappointed when all 4 dishes were dumped on our table all at once. I kind of goes against what Italian dining is meant to be about. We were in and out in 40 minutes. Great if you are late for a show but not so good when you're looking for a relaxed meal.

We had a table of six for dinner. We had to ask for service and never really knew who our server was. Food came out cold and no one ever came to refill water or ask if we wanted more wine. This is the second time we have been to FF and we will not be coming back. Overall a very unpleasant experience.

I booked the restaurant for 7:30PM and it came up for 7:00pm instead on the booking. When we got the restaurant at 7:30pm, we waited awhile before we were seated. The waitress who was working there was abrupt and short. The service was horrible, the amazing food made up for the terrible service.

Friendly and efficient service. Extensive menu. Reasonably priced. All people in the group liked the food. Handy city location.
Noisy - so difficult to hear the waiter sometimes and to others at the same table.

A little hard to find at first because it is located in the basement of the Burns Philp Building and only has a relatively small entrance marked more by a list of menu items than the name of the restaurant. In fact, at first, we walked by it without even noticing it. Room was a former spice market but there is no sound absorbing material in the room so the noise level can be significant. Food is not anything special. Pizzas attempt to be creative in their mix of ingredients but most of the menu items (including the pizzas) tended to be overcooked and over-salted. Would not return.

There was a separate room being set up during lunch with tables being dragged in right by where we were sitting and almost hit our guests.. they also started drilling which meant we couldn't hear each other. Was an unpleasant experience

Had an 8pm booking. The restaurant had run out of several items on the menu that we had chosen and our first choice of wine. This was very disappointing. Despite this the food and wine was very good and good value.

Great Italian food served simply in a basement CBD setting. Can get it a bit loud, and sometimes the pasta serves could be more generous. But the whole fish is great and zucchini flowers are amazing

We arrived early and the table was ready which was great, but we ordered a side of broccolini which never arrived. The waiter never checked on us so we didn't get a chance to ask for it. When the bill came we were charged for it, but they removed the cost when we pointed it out.

The food was amazing. Aesthetically, the venue wasn't too appealing. We had to move from our seating as it was so cold. We then moved to really uncomfortable seating whereby you couldn't fit your legs comfortably under the table.
