In Italian, “Fratelli” means “brothers.” Hence, the name Fratelli for brothers Pete Cannella and Dave Cannell’s popular Sandy restaurant. It’s an upscale but friendly Italian eatery, where customers are treated like members of the owners’ family. Steamed clams and mussels in garlic-lemon broth is a good place to start, perhaps paired with a glass of wine from Fratelli’s excellent wine list. The Sicilian citrus arugula and the Caesar are both superb salads, and the pizzas are equally tempting. Housemade gnocchi with Gorgonzola is killer, and ditto the bucatini carbonara. And definitely save room for Pete and Dave’s outstanding homestyle tiramisu—it’s sublimely decadent.
