Spartanburg doesn't have many purely Italian restaurants, but we should be proud to have this one. All of their sauces are homemade, and you can absolutely tell. I just recently got into their pizza menu, and it's amazing as well! They did a wonderful job redecorating the space. It's clean and dark and moody (in a good way) with a long bar and very cool wine bottle wall. Lots of booths = right up my alley. Great for a romantic evening!
The hubs always goes in intending to branch out, but always comes back to his favorite italian classic: Spaghetti Bolognese. The sauce is creamy and meaty and would be good just on a spoon, but you can choose from 6 different pastas plus 3 wheat varieties. There are also 11 other sauces, so really an endless combination. I've also personally tried the alfredo on the cappellini (angel hair) with shrimp, more than once, and you can't go wrong there either.
I had every intention of showing the bread basket they provide, but whoops... Be sure to save a roll for after you finish your meal to sop up that sauce!!
So the pizza menu also has endless combinations, and I've only tried one, but I've gotten it twice now. It's the Green Pizza: pesto sauce, chicken, spinach and artichokes. I add jalapenos, because, well, I tend to add jalapenos to all of my pizzas.
Again, sauce is on point, but the crust is also a hit with me. It's thin and crusty, like a good italian pizza should be! Pictured here is a medium. Note: you do not need a medium for one person unless you want leftovers for days (which I kinda did). They have a personal size, so maybe aim for that if you aren't sharing.
Head to Fratello's on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays for buy one get one 1/2 off pizzas, or Thursdays if you'd like to enjoy house wine for $3 a glass!!
Or if you can't peel yourself off the couch...order in with Hub City Delivery.
