Fradelizio’s is a great place to eat for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. After finding a parking spot in the small town of Fairfax, you will spot the small Italian restaurant located on the corner of the main intersection. The open windows give people passing by a perfect view of the delicious Italian restaurant, and the aroma of freshly cooked pasta and bread seep through every crack.
Welcoming faces greet you as soon as you step in, and you are gently escorted to a table, if one is available. There are seats both at the front of the restaurant next to the window, looking out at beautiful Fairfax, and further back in the cozy corners. Fradelizio’s is a very popular restaurant, so it is a good idea to call ahead to make reservations if you do not want any chance of waiting. The small restaurant has perfect lighting, not too dark or too light for you to enjoy the upcoming courses. After being seated for a few minutes, water and bread will quickly be accompanying you at the table, for the service as Fradelizio’s is always speedy and the waiters will not keep you waiting.
The menu has a large variety of choices that will assure you a satisfying meal, no matter what you are in the mood for. Along with the list of pastas they always have available, there is a section on the menu to create your own pasta with whichever type of pasta and sauce you would like. However, most do not feel the need to customize their own choices because the daily choices are all very delicious. The pasta is cooked to perfection and each sauce has a unique taste that no other Italian restaurant could perfect. One example of this is the Butternut Squash Ravioli, my ultimate favorite choice. This ravioli comes with an award-worthy alfredo sauce that mixes perfectly with the sweet taste of butternut squash that melts in your mouth. In addition to the daily choices and the customize option, there is always a specials menu with several delectable choices and a large assortment of salads. All of the choices of pastas, salads, and even more make it a very difficult decision when eating at Fradelizio’s, but the experience will always end with full satisfaction.
Along with the amazing service and delectable, one of a kind food, Fradelizio’s has a perfect location in the middle of Fairfax at 35 Broadway Boulevard. Once driving on 101, take the San Anselmo exit and continue to drive on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard for about 3 miles, then turn left onto Center Boulevard and Fradelizio’s will be located on your left, on the corner of Center Boulevard and Broadway Boulevard. It is open daily from 11:30am till 10:00pm, 11:30pm on Friday and Saturday. Fradelizio’s has a large price range, from anything between a $5.50 salad to a $19.95 New York Pepper Steak. I promise that no matter how much money you end up spending at Fradelizio’s, every penny will be worth it.
