We found this quaint restaurant thanks to tripadvisor. The eating experience was just awesome. We had the duo bis primi for 22 euros, thinking it was one serving each, but we got two each. 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

Took my partner here for a romantic birthday meal, after having it recommended to me (also by checking the TA reviews which were already good). I wasn't disappointed. The service was very good, staff very friendly and welcoming, and more importantly the food was great. The antipasti was big and beautiful! My main (steak) was juicy, tender and tasty and... More

I went there with two friends and we had the most amazing starter and absolutely without a doubt the best steak I ever tasted. Friendly staff too. I would return to Frascati again just for this restaurant.

Probably the best food in Frascati! We had a wonderful dinner. There were only locals, which says for itself. We would recommend to friends.

Ate with a bunch of americans, who don't really understand european eating habits and timing, so maybe that was a problem. And we were the only ones there, though it was a monday so maybe that's a partial explanation. But generally unimpressive food and service.

Hands down my favourite place in Frascati, and well worth leaving Rome for. Don't miss the starter plate and the chick pea and truffle oil dip. The menu is very original and the staff is friendly and super at helping you choose as a tourist. The restaurant itself is very cute and intimate great for a romantic night, or a... More

If in Frascati this is the place to go. Very nice ambience, very good food, not to be missed out. You have to try the pasta con gorgonzola e radicchio, they are delicious. All in all very food food choice somewhat different what is usually offered in the Rome area.

At times, it felt like Faulty Towers. Several of our orders were wrong or not taken, which did not make for a great experience. Tempting to think it was the language barrier, but even some locals had difficulties. Perhaps just a bad night??!! Having said that, the food (whatever arrived) was of good ingredients and well cooked. Hence the 3*.
