Wonderful Last NIght Dinner

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance at this restaurant on our final night in Frascati in April. The service was super, and the food was delicious. The table wines were also first class.

Thank you for a perfect Easter Eve! Great food! Great service! A special thanks to the Waitress that let us in earlier when it was not open yet! It was freezing cold and it rained and we were so pleased got to sit down and drink some wine before ordering our dishes. GRAZIE MILLE

Very high quality food and service. Cozy environment and even if it was January we were sitting in the outdoor heated environment. Great place in the quiet part of Frascatti.

We dined here last year as a small group as it was recommended by a close friend from Frascati. It was that good that we made a special point to visit again tis year whilst we were spending a weekend in Rome. Frascati is twenty minutes by train from Termini station in Rome and is an amazing contrast from the... More

The pasta was delicious. We also had the mixed meat platter, plentiful for two people. The desserts, OMG! The crushed millefeuille wafers on chantilly cream with... More

I'm not sure how this place is not #1 in Frascati. The food was the best we had during our trip through Italy. We had been in Milan, Venice, Trieste and Rome, and no restaurant in any of these cities that we tried came close to the food we had here. The pasta was so fresh and flavorful, the house... More
