Fratello's to open Monday in downtown Homewood

A long-anticipated addition to Homewood's dining scene is about to open.

Fratello's Café and Deli will open Monday, May 11, at 18201 Dixie Highway, according to the owners. 
"We are excited to be opening and being a part of Homewood for many years to come," co-owner Marco Caso said.

Co-owner Adrian Martino said the shop would offer preumium sandwiches and specialty Italian pasta dishes. 

Regular hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the week and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. The shop has a class 4B liquor license, which allows beer and wine sales.
