The thing that stands out most about this place is the service. The food is delicious, the setting is cosy and warm, and it's good value for money too, but it's the people who really make it. We booked for 9pm on a Thursday evening, whilst staying in nearby Marino for the night. We were given a choice of table... More

Was given the address of this restaurant by the receptionist of the hotel we were staying in and even though we had to wait for the restaurant to open (7.30pm) it was well worth it. We were even invited in to sit and wait for the 15mins by Fausto. He then gave us an English menu and showed us what... More

Yet again the trip advisor reviewers get it right. A bit of a place to find but once there so glad we made the effort. We just called on the off chance as we were on a few nights in Frascati and a seat was found for us. The place really started to get busy but all tables were nicely... More

I'm from the Netherlands and my boyfriend's Italian, from Rome. We are currently studying in Scotland, but decided to visit Italy together just after Easter this year. After a big tour of Rome and various lovely foodstuffs later, we decided to go to this restaurant on the last evening of our trip. Never having been to this restaurant before, but... More

My and my husband went from the center of Rome to Frascati, just to eat in that restaurant because we trusted the comments on Tripadvisor. Although we just called before going there, they were so nice to tell us on phone that they will immediately arrange a table for us. After arriving Frascati, which is very calm and and a... More

Second favourite restaurant in the Frascati region. Found the details on Trip Advisor and from others comments decided to try when we were in Frascati in Aug/Sept... glad we did. There were 9 of us - we started with the house starter - a variety of dishes, almost like tapas - each one better than the last, particularly loved the... More

Really excellent food, with friendly and efficiant service and lively environment. The best restaurant I have been to for some time in Italy.

After reading the reviews for Pezzafina, my husband and I set out on a short trek to the restaurant. It was less than half a mile from our hotel and well worth the easy walk. Upon arrival, Fausto warmly greeted us and gave a quick explanation of the menu. He talked us into the house antipasti and it was a... More

This was our first night in Italy and we were staying in Frascati. Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we went early (before 9:00 PM) and Fausto greeted us warmly and spent some time explaining the menu and recommending a great, inexpensive, Italian red wine. The meal was one of the best we had during our 10 day sojourn around... More

Appetizers were excellent, pasta was good although one dish was too salty, owner (Fausto) was very friendly, it was a great find off the tourist track!
