This past weekend my extended familiy and I were all in the city, and my parents mentioned we would go eat at one of their favorite spots ""Fratellis"". My first thought was, ""is it child friendly"". I have a 21 month old, and most places in Manhattan squeeze the most amount of people into a small space, which usually counts us out, we come carrying diaper bag, stroller, bag full of entertainment, and of course the baby! From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted with a welcome smile, and a well arranged spot for the family and baby too! My daughter was offered bread, and a drink before anyone else had ordered. Someone was definitly on the ball! When my daughter got a little antsy the waiter immediately came by to entertain her with a toy he just happened to have in his posession. She was thrilled. Once the food came, we were in seventh heaven. All of the dishes were exceptional, this is especially good coming from an Italian family of very picky eaters, and tough critics. I can't say enough great things. I especially thought the staff was very alert, and friendly. This is definitly a place I would revisit when in Manhattan!!! FIVE STARS!
Pros: Friendly staff!!!
