Frati is the taste of Italy - in the middle of Trondheim. For over 40 years has the Italian restaurant served tasty dishes, and is known for its tempting appetizers, better dinners and a wide selection of fine wines. In the family run restaurant, good ingredients are spcied up with joy and friendly people. The hospitality is great, and everything is arranged for you to relax and enjoy an evening of good food and good company in a real Italian restaurant.

We were three people. Had a bottle of house wine. Poor wine. Pasta quality was horrible, price poor and service mediocre. Would not recommend.

Excellent restaurant in newly renovated location in the heart of Trondheim. Traditional italian food with a twist, and a wide selection of vines. Temporary industrial interior, and outside seating if the weather is good. Quiet area down town, overlloking the town square. Excellent food and good service.

Frati Just moved from their Old location to a New modern location. Fantastic food and the waiter brings fresh cold water constantly. Trondheims best italiensk italian-food restaurant. Try Chao Chao if you watt pizza, a winner every time.

Pizza is ok. But not exceptional. We ordered bread as a starter. Never got it. The staff came back several time to recheck the main orders. Third time it felt a bit amateur. The cheeses were served without telling what they were. When asked we did not got an answer. The macchiato was the best, it was heavenly so next... More

I had a very pleasant experience at Frati. Love the indoor herb garden and the interior design! We both had pasta, witch we very much enjoyed. I'd definitely recommend the pale ale of the house. The staff was friendly and attentive. We got more drinks etc right away. Maybe a bit loud at times, but we didn't really mind.

I've reviewed Frati before (2 years ago), but find reason to write a new review. Frati has recently moved to a new location, which was a great improvement and also includes a nice outdoor seating area. After the move they also introduced gluten free pizza on the menu. The food normally tastes great (big fan of the spagetti alle Cozze),... More

This franchise owns several restaurants in Trondheim. Every time they start something new it becomes a success.. I were here at their grand opening in their new locals. We tried many things from their new menu, and not a single bit of it was dissapointing. If you are planning to dine here I suggest you to call and book a... More

Frati is the oldest Italian restaurant in town, but judging by the new locale you'd think it's the newest! I love what they done with the place. The indoor herb garden, charcuterie display and the wine collection makes for a nice food-centric atmosphere. We were a group of six people (Ages 18-60) with different tastes and demands and we were... More
