Italian restaurant inside the Hilton Hotel. Food is ok, bit pricey but well prepared good service. Only problem for me is that you are eating in a hotel environment and it lacks a bit of atmosphere. If that doesn't bother you, you won't be disappointed. If it does there are options nearby in Ponteland.

We ate here as a family of four prior to a flight from the airport. The service was excellent, very attentive. All of the food was also excellent - very fresh and tasty. Indeed, the broccoli & blue cheese pasta was probably the best I have tasted! We've eaten here before and it was good, but we were very impressed... More

We visited Fratello's today for a Mother's Day special lunch. The food and service was fantastic! The food came extremely quickly and our server was really friendly and couldn't have been more helpful! Would highly recommend this place! Wonderful decor and atmosphere too and child friendly!

Usually my experience has been airport hotels don't serve good tasting food, this hotel is a pleasant exception. Italian based dishes with a good choice of pizza and pasta with a few seafood and meat dishes. All was cooked well and looked very presentable. Bar was very good and I am told the non alcoholic apple slushy was excellent. I... More

Just sat here after a lovely meal before flying out of Newcastle Airport in the morning. Huge portions Shared a platter and really it was enough for 4 ! Then two amazing pasta dishes one with clams one with prawns. Next time no starters! My one small criticism is the waiter had to be asked about the food rather than... More

It was a Monday night so fairly quiet in terms of atmosphere. The menu was large and varied and there were plenty of options other than pasta/pizza, neither of which I'm a great fan of. The waitress was really friendly and helpful and took our orders fairly swiftly, but we had to wait a long time (30-40mins) for our main... More

Wouldn't come here if I wasn't staying in the hotel. Wouldn't stay in the hotel if Fratello's wasn't here. So win/win. My 3rd visit this year and standards for both hotel and restaurant are good.
