While it is off the beaten path, not in College Station and not actually in downtown Bryan this little café is worth a visit. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Members of my group tried a variety of items from the menu and were all pleaded. The Italian food was great and chicken salad was as... More

Family get together for lunch! Excellent service, clean, small, family based. Not noisey tables round can seat 8 if need be! I think it's the best Italian in town.

We had visited Patranella's before for a dessert outing and loved it. So when we were deciding where to have my son's graduation dinner and realized that Patranella's was open for dinner on Fridays, it was an easy decision. We had a group of 13 and could not have been more pleased with the service and food. Everything was delicious... More

The desserts are to die for, but lunch is definitely worth a visit. The sandwiches and quiche, fresh fruit and hamburgers are great. Oh, and did I mention the quiche? Get the quiche. And stay for dessert, obviously.

We stopped for a sweet treat and boy, did we find it at Patranella's. We had been all over Texas sampling the delicious baked goods, barbeque and cookies, but the peanut butter cookie we shared from Patranella's was my favorite of the week! Nice place, good service, too.

We went there to celebrate a birthday of a friend. It is a small locally owned and run bakery and cafe. The atmosphere is simple and rustic, the service is excellent and attentive, the menu is simple and carry a variety from traditional Italian pasta to salads, sandwiches, meatloaf, etc. Make sure you have a room for dessert. It is... More

Patranella's has excellent food and a very casual, friendly atmosphere. Open for lunch Sunday - Friday and dinner on Friday too, their menu is full of Italian favorites. The food is fresh and delicious, but if you go for lunch know that it is very rich and heavy as well. Also, it's very expensive. $12 for spaghetti and meatballs for... More

I've only been once but since I'm Italian and my wife has learned the trade of Italian cooking, we don't eat at too many Italian restaurants. That being said, this was as close as it gets to homemade. A great experience and will definitely go back.
