Fratelli's Italian Kitchen - Oceanside
Met friends from the east coast and chose this place from the reviews as it’s halfway from Santa Ana and San Diego
End of a strip mall but felt like a stand alone Italian
We all very much enjoyed our food and service
Typical Italian fare,well prepared and good value.
No complaints and would return for similar rendezvous
The best Italian food since I left Brooklyn 42 years ago. Service was excellent. Felt like we weee at home.
The food was excellent! Some of the best Italian food we had had. The spicing was wonderful and the ingredients were cooked properly, the pasta not overdone, just right. We had absolutely no complaints about the food or the service.. And the atmosphere was very comfortable and cozy.
The only complaint is a small one and it may have been due to not enough staff this Memorial Day weekend.
We had to wait for an hour for our food, and there were only the three of us. But we are planning to come back, the food is THAT good!
Delicious food and absolutely fabulous service!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Oceanside area!
You've changed your Bruschetta a few times now. None of my party of 5 really cared for it. Not everyone is a fan of goat cheese. And when you have a winning combination of ingredients to start with, it's overkill. Sometimes keeping it simple is best.
Definitely worth a visit. Ignore the strip mall location. The interior is tasteful, comfortable, and very quiet. It was a nice change to be able to have a conversation without shouting. Despite the menu, this is not typical "red-sauce" dining, either. The food is lovingly prepared and doesn't look like it was thrown together at the last minute.
The lasagna is outstanding and if you ask nicely, you can get some extra bolognese sauce to blot up with the foccacia. There was a special on the day we went: scallops on risotto. The scallops were perfectly seared without being left either raw or rubbery and the risotto was creamy and actually tasted of more than just rice.
The service was prompt and polite and our glasses never got below half-full.
Loved the family feel and hospitality. The food was amazing n didn’t wait long.
Our go to restaurant when we want pizza. Best pizza in the area. Other menu items just as good. Service is great.
Came here to meet friends, found a bustling neighborhood Italian place - food is good, nice atmosphere, and pleasant and efficient servers. This is not "gourmet" Italian dining, but everything is fresh and well prepared - Italian/American is more like it. One person at the table got Pizza, and liked it; I got a pasta dish with added shrimp that was tasty. Good beer and wine selection. If I lived nearby I'd probably go back. Overall a good neighborhood eatery.
I came down last month from San Jose to visit my girlfriend and we ended up at Fratelli's restaurant. I was impressed by just about everything, service, food quality, etc... that we came back the next night. I was down this past weekend and had made a reservation at another restaurant but ended up cancelling it to go to Fratelli's again. Yes it's that good. I can honestly say that from now on anytime I go down there I will be going here at least once on my visit.
Had a reservation for 5pm on Saturday, got there 15 minutes early and we were seated immediately. Server was friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly and was delicious. We really enjoyed the fried artichoke hearts and highly recommend them.
We dined at Fratellis for my husband's birthday! The meal and service were Outstanding as usual!
Food was delicious and portions were generous! We had the chicken piccata and spaghetti with meatballs.
Excellent margarita pizza! We had pizza sauce added this time and it was excellent! Salads are very good too.
Very friendly atmosphere and good food. Reasonable prices
Amazing Italian food and big portions. The bread and oil is delicious. You will not leave disappointed!
Great food, great service. Had a reservation, but at the time (5:00) none would have been necessary. Enjoyed our time there.
It's always outstanding. Every single time. Stop asking. Just go.
Fratelli’s consistently has great food, great wines, and great service. It is one of our very favorite Italian restaurants anywhere!
Great food at a reasonable price. You always know what to expect. Highly recommended.
Great place, love the food, just a bit pricey.
This was our first visit there and we now have a new favorite Italian spot. Will definitely recommend and visit again.
Service was quick and the food was served piping hot. We will frequent this place
A delightful experience as always! Great service, delicious food and amazing value!
Food was great, service outstanding, and the price was very fair. Could not have asked for better Valentine's day spot
Very lively and inviting environment. Had the margherita pizza which was good and the Tiramisu which was outstanding. Service is where I feel like this place sets itself apart. We were there on Valentines day and the place was packed. Nevertheless, the wait staff was excellent at coordinating and working together to keep us well attended without being overbearing. I've never seen a crew work so well at communicating to provide a consistent, timely and friendly experience. Next time I will be going for one of the pasta dishes. They all looked so good as they were being served to others.
Great service, great food, great wine. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the server gave us excellent advice on wine choices, including g a taste before we ordered.
Great place to go for awesome Italian food. The service could not have been better ! Our server was super nice and friendly, timely and attentive, with a great sense of humor. Wish I could remember his name! We shared a Caesar salad and had a 16 inch pepperoni pizza which allow us to take home tow slices for lunch. The crust was just crispy enough with lots of ricotta cheese, garlic, spinach and of course pepperoni. This could be a go to place for pizza. We have had other entrees here in the past and they were flavorful and authentic, just like my Italian mother in law used to make,
Wonderful food and service, helped this immensely exhausted mommy. Rainy days are easier with good food.
As ALWAYS, another wonderful meal at Fratelli's. Great food in large portions at a fair price. Fantastic team all around (FOH and BOH). Can't wait to eat here again. It'll be soon, be assured.
We enjoyed the homemade food and friendly server. We will definitely be back with our family.
Familiar with restaurant. Celebrating birthday. Service great. Food very good. Homemade bread excellent with olive oil garlic and pesto sauce is excellent
Food and service were AWESOME as usual! We will be back for sure!
Great food always and wonderful and pleasant service
Love you guys! Will see you again soon. And often. The food, the team, the vibe. All of it makes Fratelli's our favorite restaurant.
Anyone reading this who is unfamiliar, don't take my word (or anyone else's). Just go and you'll understand. This is one of the best restaurants in town. Not cheapest, not top-end fine dining, not a lot of things, but simply outstanding.
Service was excellent, we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The price seemed a little high but food was cooked as requested and portions were good.
Great overall experience! I love Fratelli’s! Took my girlfriend here for a date and it’s been a while since we’ve been! They’ve really picked up business! We were seated almost immediately using the open table app to make reservations, the food was delicious, just as we had remembered, and the service was great!
This is our favorite family gathering restaurant. We always make a reservation since there are usually six or more of us. The service is great. The food is good Italian comfort food. Great pasta dishes plus great pizza.
We love their own label wine which comes from a Fallbrook winery.
We visited from out of town and wanted something near our Courtyard hotel. We weren't sure what to expect but as it turns out, it was a great decision! We ordered a bottle of wine (half off wine bottles on Wednesday- really a great deal), a really nice Syrah for only $16.00. Their bread is absolutely delicious and after tasting it, we decided to get the Pepperoni White Pie pizza. It was superb, the crust was thin and crunchy and the whole pie was delicious. They definitely do not skimp on the toppings or the cheese, both very generous. We also saw the entrees - also sized very generous with loads of cheese. The service was great too. They were very friendly and made sure we were happy. We will definitely come back when we are in the area and we highly recommend.
