Great place! Huge portions!

Chose the place based on reviews. All true, place is great. We've arrived about 15 min before it opened for dinner - good decision! - place got packed fast. In-between five of us we ordered many dishes and all were so tasty! Finished everything, even though portions were unexpectedly big. Most... read more

Dined here with friends because of numerous favorable reviews on Tripadvisor but were disappointed. We were the first in the restaurant and yet they plunked us right next to the kitchen, all the way in the back (I would have asked for another table but my friends don't like to do that). Two of us ordered spaghetti carbonara and it... More

Went here with my Mom, Dad and girlfriend and had one of the best meals during our 2 weeks in Italy. Very eclectic menu that goes beyond Italian. The appetizer platter was unbelievable, delicious, abundant and really thrilled my taste buds. Strawberries in balsamic vinegar, chick peas in yogurt, creamy mozzarella and other cheeses in addition to fabulous wine. I... More

Good food from a very typical menu, but expensive. We arrived very early so had the restaurant to ourselves for a while, but once a few more people arrived the atmospehre was good. The waitress who served us was obviously very new and nervous as she learned the ropes, but nonetheless the service was vary good.

Quaint environment, very proper service, limited menu. Although Pizza was on the menu they did not serve it at dinnertime. Most of the menu was devoted to beef and lamb. I did not come the Frascati to eat beef and lamb. Limited number of pasta dishes. Although the waitress spoke only limited English, I managed to negotiate that they omit... More

We had a lovely lunch. The staff were friendly and the food was very tasty. We shared the antipasti which was delicious and then had the primi pasti/ pasta course which was great too. I had the ravioli con fiori di zucca 👍. The house red wine I would recommend. We will return...:-)

Four of us have had dinner on May 9. It was superb! My tag along started with a green salad than split the apple and honey steak with another lady. I had an excellent pasta followed by the steak with mushrooms. House red wine was above average. Service was attentive and very friendly. Highly recommended and we will return when... More

We ate here the first nite and wanted to go back every nite. The food tasted so different then what I was use to. Over the top good. Also the manager spoke English which was a huge plus.

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.
