Back in October, I wrote about a fundraiser I attended for my friend Brittany who is battling cancer. In a raffle, I won 3 restaurant gift certificates. One was to Fratello’s Restaurant in Sea Girt, NJ. I went there a few weeks ago and of course I brought Brittany along with me.
Since this was a restaurant that I won a gift certificate for, I thought I would include some details and pictures of my visit!
First off, the restaurant is so cute on the outside with a striped awning and twinkle lights all around.
Complimentary bread and bruschetta graced our table shortly after we were seated. Bread and bruschetta are always a good start to a meal at an italian restaurant in my book! The bruschetta at Fratello’s was primarly tomato as you can see below.
Our meals came with salads and I got the house salad, which was not my favorite. It was a bit too sour for my liking.
I got the penne vodka for my entree. It was very tasty. A much lighter, less creamy penne vodka than I’ve had in the past, but still good nonetheless. Since it was less creamy, it definitely meant I was able to eat more!
The menu is quite expansive ranging from pasta dishes, meat dishes, and seafood.
The restaurant was filled with people — clearly a local hotspot and the ambience was very friendly and warm. If I were going out to dinner in that area again, I would definitely go back!
