  • "Drinks were a bit slow in arriving, my food wasn't exactly as expected peas instead of beans in the cod sauce, but overall good"

  • "I attended the restaurant with my family for a mid week cooking break. The food was basic and I felt a little overpriced, we ordered pizza which was lacking in topping, and the lamb was a little undercooked. However, the service was fantastic with very helpful professional staff."

  • "Our first visit to Fratellos was much anticipated as it's only 10 minutes from home. The waitress was lovely and very informative. The large prawn starter was fabulous and my bruschetta also, presentation was beautiful. My husband ordered the Fratellos Pasta Penne which was so salty from the prosciutto it was very hard to finish, I had good old Tagliatelle Bolognese which was delicious but the portion compared to my husbands Penne dish was tiny. I left feeling hungry!! We will give it another go and choose other dishes but I can't rate it more than 6/10"

  • "Met the family here for Sunday lunch, we had an excellent meal, and relaxed in the lounge for coffee, service was superb, food was presented beautifully and we had a wonderful time here and would recommend to anyone, we will definitely be back, even though we travelled over 100 miles, well worth the trip."

  • "We booked online for a meal for my partners birthday, we received our free bottle of bubbles which was very nice ;-) service was very good and being able to watch the chef make pizza was great. The veal was a little tough but nice not all was eaten and the price was refunded very nice not to have to argue this fact. Nice decor nice menu not too much choice. We will be back soon ;-)"

  • "The Holiday Inn chain is the company choice of Hotels for the overnight stay, normally the HI restaurants are nothing but functional ares set aside from main reception that are used for breakfast, lunch and evening meals. So you can imagine my delight at being confronted by a proper destination restaurant with a reasonable looking Italian menu. The meal started exceptionally well with a starter selected from the daily specials, the asparagus with ducks egg in a lemon hollandaise sauce was delicious, the main of Fratello's pasta was also enjoyable, unfortunately the tiramisu to finish left a rather unfortunate bitter coffee taste in the mouth. The service from the waiting staff deserves a mention as it was both friendly and slick."

  • "Went here instead of usual trip to La Piazza2 in Richmond. Service started out great, we were eating early with 2 children, but slowed down as soon as other diners appeared. Starters of Fritto Misto, arrived cold. Pizzas tasty enough,but had been waiting under hot lights for a while - this was unnecessary as we were the only ones there! Place lacked atmosphere, but is tastefully done up. So although only 5 minutes down the road, not sure we'll go back."

  • "What a treat for us now Fratelloes has opened as we live next door. Lovely atmosphere, staff always very attentive and friendly. Food is always excellent and we love the specials which are changed every couple days. The reward system ie scratch cards and discount cards are a great idea. All in all Fratelloes is an excellent restaurant and value for money."

  • "We booked a table online for a late lunch on Mothers' Day. The menu offered a good choice, the food was nicely cooked and well presented, though the roast could have been a bit warmer. Service was excellent. The free glass of bubbly, chocolates to take away and, unexpectedly, the free meal for 'Mum' were an added bonus. The venue is spacious and stylish with comfy sofas if you want to relax over coffee after a meal. The car park is free for those using the restaurant or hotel. We would definitely use this restaurant again."

  • "Having been to fratellos on a few occasions, i knew that the service is stretched, to put it poiltely. The starters were really good. The large prawns have been a reason for going back since the restaurant opened. The main courses were poor. my lady did not enjoy the seafood risotto (a poor comparison to Foffano's in Darlington the week before) and the lamb dish that i had was extremely dry. The main issue, as last time, is that you order a glass of wine to go with your dinner and it does not arrive until you have practically finished your meal ! Disappointing."

  • "Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Staff very friendly. The specials menu changed daily and always excellent value for money. House wine reasonably priced in restaurant. We eat here regularly and love it when the special offers for 50 per cent off vouchers for food are available."

  • "I treated my partner to a birthday meal. I was very pleased with my choice as I have heared mixed reports on the resturant. This was my 2nd visit but knew my partner would enjoy it as I did on both of my visits. There was a nice steady stream of customers through out the time we where there. The only down side was we had to wait quite long periods from asking for a drink to actually receiving it, we did then realise it comes from the hotels main bar and not from inside the resturant so this was understood but in the same breath, no body likes to wait for a drink when enjoying a lovely meal. Staff friendly. Food was fantastic. I had the tuna salad of which the tuna was cooked to perfection. Just as I asked and liked. Will deffo go again."

  • "V. little for vegetarians, nothing for vegans unless an ingredient is omitted. Though not stated, they make their own pesto, without Parmesan and thus OK for vegetarians. Pizza not recommended: bases tough & v salty, toppings rather thin, though I appreciated the generous quantity of olives when I asked for a couple instead of cheese. Those in the party who had something other than pizza were pleased with their dishes & the house wine is very nice. We were also pleased at being kept topped up with jugs of iced water. V clean, tables well spaced, pleasant helpful staff. I've put that I wouldn't recommend it but should have preferred the option of 'yes, with reservations'. Lots of spelling mistakes & fish mislabelled as vegetarian."
