On the plus side Frati has a lovely atmosphere, rustic decor, candles and small fires dotted around the restaurant. However the food was all very average. Carpaccio was bland, and whilst the Parma ham, melon and figs sounds lovely it was all a bit much and trying too hard. The mains we tried of veal and the skewered meats were... More

The real pizza is Italian, not North American. Frati is a Italian restaurant run by Italians and serves the the pizza the way it should be. Very delicious and tasy. The staff (Swedish, as they usually is these days) are very nice and welcoming. Good atmosphere and reasonable prices. A restaurant I like to recommend.

Frati is a popular restaurant in the very center of Trondheim. It can be a bit challenging finding the restaurant as it is located in the second floor and the entrance is somewhat anonymous. The menu presents a wide selection of courses, which all looks desirable (and they all are). Frati is also known for their passion for good wines... More
