The best meal I've had in a very long time! The appetizer consists of many different plates, all amazing. The ravioli with ricotta and spinach were to die for. The owner is really friendly and the atmosphere very welcoming. Loved it!

The best meal I have ever had as the official outing of a conference/meeting. Six courses and bottomless wine made for a lengthy and enjoyable evening at an unusally not-stupid price. The food itself was then simply elevating. The ribbon beef was a revelation and the pasta courses provided intriguing variaitions on dishes I know well. I will return here.... More

The food is good, the service is fine, the prices are inexpensive, and the ambiance is comfortable—an excellent choice for an early or easy dinner (like on the night you arrive and you’re adjusting to the time difference!). It’s an easy walk, near the center of town.

New building but kitted out with a rustic ambience, so nice atmosphere. The antipasti were amazing, a mix of all different tasters. Share because there is a lot to eat if you have one each. Right in the center, so we went for an ice-cream after instead of having dessert.

They serve delicious classical italian food in this traditional looking restaurant. We had great antipasti followed by a wonderful pasta dish with tomato sauce. My friend also had the pizza which was also delicious, Very lively spot in the centre of the town, Nice friendly staff. Good value.

After a men-only visit, we were so well looked after we returned as couples, two evenings later, and the quality of the food and service was just as good.

If you are the type to rate a restaurant on how many locals are eating here then you will love La Vecchia Frasca. We walked in at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon with no booking and the restaurant was lively and full but they managed to find a table for the four of us. The staff were really friendly and... More

This is a fairly large restaurant and the clientele is a combination of mostly locals, businessmen and some tourists. Upon entering we were led to an awful table, though the restaurant was only 25% full at the time. A bad sign. My husband refused the table and selected one that was more appropriate. It quickly became apparent that not everyone... More

When we said we wanted red told again only Frascati. During the night locals given carafes & bottles of red. Waiter shocked when my husband told him in Italian we... More
