Great Italian cuisine doesn’t grow on trees, at least not until some ingenious botanist creates the eggplant parmigiana palmetto. For those lacking graduate degrees in science but still craving a hearty plate of Italian cuisine made the way it ought to be, there’s Fratelli’s in Red Bank. With this deal, get $40 worth of Italian and American classics for $20.
At Fratelli’s, the menu boasts traditional family recipes as well as wood-fired brick oven pizza and more. Try their chicken parmigiana, calimari a la marinara or shrimp broccoli alfredo if you're in the mood for a hearty entree. Keeping it more casual? No problem! You'll find a variety of subs, cheesesteaks and wraps too. A trip to Fratelli's would be remiss without at least a taste of the old-school pizza they're known for, fired in a handcrafted oven imported direct from Italy. Follow your small feast with a delicious cannoli, zeppoli or a piece of homemade tiramisu or Italian cheesecake, and you'll soon see why this area favorite is so habit-forming.
