While in Frascati, found this restaurant on a side street and liked it so much we ate dinner there for 3 evenings. Food was fresh, well presented and delightful indeed. They seemed to be open early enough for your typical American tourist and I was pleased to be nearly the only couple in that early. The restaurant did fill up... More

Enjoyed two dinners here - we stopped here first because of the cinghale pasta on the menu. It was delicious along with grilled chicken and fresh vegetables. The second night was equally good. There were a mix of tourists and locals. Service was timely with friendly waitstaff.

My wife and I ate here in mid-late March. We walked in fairly early for an Italian dinner (about 7pm) and asked if they were open, and they said yes. We were the only customers. In short, this might well be the worst restaurant service experience I have ever encountered (and this is in Italy where there are so many... More

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.
