Fraticelli’s is housed in an attractive building in Richmond Hill, near Buttonville airport. You can dine inside or enjoy the inviting patio in season. This visit we eye the little lounge by the grand piano. It’s tucked in the expansive bar area, replete with all the comforts and flat HD TVs. We look at the dinner menu for future reference. Very nice. But this is mid day, so we order from the lunch menu. Not an item here that each of us won’t want to try in future visits…
From the grilled calamari to the pizzas, to the authentic pasta, they are all delicious, fresh and authentic. Home-cooked meets cutting-edge. The service is also excellent. Our server loves it here and it clearly shows.
We enjoy several local Ontario wines (OK, it is now late afternoon). Excellent. There’s rumour that they are considering expanding their selection of local wines and beers. Some exclusive. Sounds great.
This is a class act. We feel good being here. It’s kind of fancy and comfortable at the same time. It truly reflects Italian fare and flair. The prices are reasonable. We’re not easy to please, but Fratacelli’s does it with ease.
