In the captivating tale of Adriano Giorgio Farinola and his brothers, we're transported to the enchanting port town of Brindisi, Italy. Growing up in their father's restaurant, their passion for delicious cuisine ignited early on. Eventually, Adriano and Pino joined their brother Aldo in managing the bustling "Ristorante delle Nazione," a beloved destination for tourists, sailors, and locals alike.
Pino's pursuit of the American dream led him to Houston, where he opened Pino's Italian Restaurant with his wife Lenora. Located near the University of Houston, the eatery quickly became popular among students seeking authentic Italian meals. Adriano later joined the team, taking Pino's to new heights.
In 2003, Adriano and Vancene brought their love for Italian cuisine to Bryan/College Station with Frittella Italian Cafe, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the community. Indulge in our specialty, the Frittella, a divine fried treat from Brindisi. Lucky for us, Pizzeria Romanelli's owner, Carlo, has brought his secret recipe to College Station.
Experience our open kitchen, where talented chefs create culinary masterpieces before your eyes. We're proud to showcase our passion for cooking and our family's cherished recipes. With our chef's thirty years of experience, fresh ingredients, and a wood-burning oven, Frittella Italian Cafe offers a variety of mouth-watering dishes, continuing the legacy of our Italian roots in College Station.
