I visited this restaurant today as I had looked at their internet menu and found something I would greatly appreciate. The greater disappointment when I came there, and it was not on the menu I was given there, the internet menu is probably an old one. The place serves somewhat acceptable food, but combined with a very dark and very... More

Aside from their authentic tasting Italian pizzas with spicy sausages that goes with their good selection of wine. To top it all, it's the ambiance that will make you stay and have a good chat. Tables are a bit close to each other so it felt so cozy and lively.

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.
