Sometimes, a good sandwich hits the spot like nothing else. When I’m in the mood for a good sandwich, I know I can rely on Due Fratelli to provide a quality dining experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s a dine-in kind of night or waiting on a food delivery, I’ve come to rely on the high quality of the food at Due Fratelli.
Sure, it’s a pizza place, but you do yourself a grave disservice if you don’t go outside the pizza box to try one of the many other menu offerings at Due Fratelli. Pastas, paninis, sandwiches, calzones and wraps – even low-carb ones – are all on offer.
Listed among the nearly 20 Panini offerings on the menu is what is quickly becoming my favorite sandwich: the Argentina Panini. Filled with Argentina steak, grilled onions, Buffalo mozzarella cheese and steak sauce, the Panini has sated my appetite on more than one occasion.
Among their vegetarian options is a Tuscan Panini that my girlfriend absolutely loves. The Tuscan features fresh mozzarella, plum tomatoes, basil, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Another menu item that comes highly recommended is the grilled vegetable wrap. Filled with eggplant, squash (green and yellow), button mushrooms, peppers and red onion, the veggies are flame-grilled and covered in a balsamic dressing. Finally, the ingredients are brought together in a spinach tortilla.
The wrap came out a little greasy, but sometimes that just makes it all the more delicious.
When ordering from Due Fratelli, make sure to save room for some dessert. The cannoli, the ends dipped in chocolate, were a great way to end the meal. In the mood for some zepolle? An order of four – which could fill two stomachs on their own – is only one dollar. You can’t beat that price.
I’ve yet to be disappointed by the service at Due Fratelli, either for dine-in or through delivery, and I can’t imagine I ever will be.
