Sydneysiders, put the Italian flair back into Manly with Fratelli Fresh!

In perfect time to celebrate the continued relaxation of dining restrictions in NSW, Manly will welcome the newest addition to Sydney’s favourite family-friendly Italian eatery, Fratelli Fresh from today, 01 July 2020.

Sitting directly across from the iconic Manly Wharf, Fratelli Fresh will be transporting its own touch of the Amalfi Coast to one of Australia’s best known beach-side suburbs. The restaurant, which will be open five days a week for reasonable lunch and dinner services, will also offer a daily ‘kids eat free’ menu for diners under the age of 12.

With both indoor and al fresco settings for up to 180 guests, this spacious new restaurant will also boast an all Italian-inspired menu which Sydneysiders have come to know and love. With à la carte dining at the forefront at Fratelli Fresh Manly, guests will find seasonal feasts including antipasti, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizzas, silken linguine, pappardelle and rigatoni smothered in delectable sauces, and let’s not forget Fratelli’s reputable gnocchi resembling soft pillows of deliciousness. The inclusive menu also offers options for dairy- and gluten-free diners. And that’s on top of the decadent desserts, including the house-made gelato which is a must-eat for any seaside diner. 

And of course, one of the city’s most coveted happy hours will also be on offer from 4-6pm on weekdays in this new Manly restaurant and bar. This weekday happy hour includes an antipasti selection of Calamri Fritti, Tomato Bruschetta and Bolognese Arancini ($5 per dish). Pair these with a cocktail for the perfect beach-day aperitivo, with Aperol Spritz ($8), Negronis ($8), pints of craft beers ($7.50) and house wines ($6) all on offer. There’s no better way to round off a blustery winter walk along the beach than by tucking into an al fresco sundowner. 

“It is certainly no mean feat to open a new restaurant in the current climate, but we stand by our commitment to bring our beautiful restaurant to a suburb that is much loved by locals, day-trippers and vacationers alike.” Rockpool Dining Group CEO Thomas Pash explained why now was the right time to open Fratelli Fresh Manly, with New South Wales Government restrictions further easing from Wednesday 01 July 2020.

“This is also an opportunity to bring many more Fratelli staff back to work who have been stood down for over three months. We have commandeered a contingent of loyal team members from our restaurants in Sydney that haven’t re-opened yet to help our new venture get off to a fabulous start.”
