Slip down the sandstone stairs and fall into the arms of a warm Italian at Fratelli Fresh. Fratelli has established a unique retail/restaurant concept on the Sydney dining scene – with outlets in Walsh Bay, Waterloo, Potts Point and the CBD. Hidden in the depths of an old sandstone building in the heart of Sydney’s bustling CBD, Fratelli on Bridge Street exudes a romantic old world charm. There are several little nooks that make up the surprisingly large underground space – with two private dining areas, called Cuvee Louise dining room and Campari Bar.
There’s a mozzarella bar for a quick post-work glass of pinot and an antipasto platter, plus a retail area where you can purchase some gourmet delights for your next dinner party. Got time to spare? Take a seat at Café Sopra and settle in for the evening. We recommend sharing a selection of dishes such as tomato and mozzarella salad, meatball orechiette and arancini. The staff, while helpful and energetic, are a little bit inexperienced so try to drag along a wine snob friend for advice in the beverage department.
