I Fratellini Restaurant Review

: This handsome little trattoria serves courses like grilled prosciutto-wrapped Belgian endive stuffed with fresh mozzarella as an appetizer; a salad of shaved Brussels sprouts and radicchio (slightly warm, in the Italian style); then lobster ravioli with lemon, basil and Parmigiano Reggiano for the pasta; and a grilled beef filet with porcini and scalloped potatoes as the main plate. Thoroughly trained servers are ready with wine pairings from a quality list of options. The tiramisu’s creamy lightness has addicted a fair number of folks, but for a change of pace try the chocolate mousse tart or a blueberry crumble with cinnamon ice cream. Chef Ny Vongsaly and owner Zoe Robinson have a longstanding partnership that’s drawn them a handsome following in the neighborhood and beyond. This means the diminutive restaurant is always packed, so be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time.
