DSC_0901Hi, we’re Don and Tracey Lurie. The proud new owners of Fratelli’s Wood-Fired Pizzeria. Here’s our story:
I have worked in full service restaurants for over 44 years. My wife, Tracey worked for over 11 years as a correctional officer in a county jail in California. Knowing we did not want to retire in California, we began planning our retirement move to Siloam Springs. We fell in love with the comfortable hometown feel and the friendly residents. Siloam Spring felt like “Home” so we decided to retire here.

For as long as Don can remember, he has loved creating and cooking wonderful dishes for others to enjoy. We have always dreamed of owning our own restaurant and decided we would strive to achieve our dream. We were thrilled beyond belief when we were afforded the opportunity to purchase Fratelli’s Wood-Fired Pizzeria. The true authentic Italian-style pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven is exactly the type of food we are proud to serve.  As the new owners of Fratelli’s, we will continue to cook true Italian-style pizzas for you to enjoy. We make our own dough using finely ground flour imported from Italy, hand-toss it, top it, and bake it in our super-hot wood-fired oven. Our marinara sauce is made with Italian plum tomatoes, and we use whole milk mozzarella cheese. You won’t find many of our ingredients on other pizza menus-most of our toppings are ones you would find on pizzas in Italy. The quantities are used to compliment rather than overwhelm the simple flavors of the crust and the sauce. We hope you will enjoy eating our pizzas as much as we enjoy making them for you!

Thank you Scott and Tom for all of the hard work, love, sweat and tears you have put into making Fratelli’s Wood-Fired Pizzeria a successful restaurant.
