Warm welcome with attractive view, restaurant and food.

We walked the 15 minutes from Via Merced and were treated to a warm welcome and a wonderful meal of traditional Italian food. We enjoyed the home made house wine with varied dishes. The bill was 78 € for 3 of us with wine and appetizers. The value was much better than usual in Rome.

Very nice restaurant, I've been there for business, the dining room is big enough to welcome 40 people. The chef presented us the complete course of the dinner, with corresponded wine that combine the different meal.

Excellent evening for family after great 2 weeks. Owner took care of us, serving up a real Roman meal, making us feel like royalty.

Had my 2014 Easter Monday lunch with family and friends. The restaurant is in a very nice position in the heart of Frascati, with the chance of eating both inside and outside on a nice terrace with a magnificent view on the city of Rome. Excellent dishes of the most traditional roman cuisine, generous helpings, very good wine. Friendly atmosphere... More

we were actually heading for the Belvedere but because the outside seating is packed into the terrace overlooking Rome it's hard to tell where one restaurant starts and ends, so we had a local pork starter, described by the only English speaking waitress as a "bit of a pig" along with tomato topped bruschetta and "homemade wine" which turned out...

Delicious bright flavorful meal, great wine list, helpful staff. I loved it. The wines of this region are under-appreciated, this is a great place to drink the best of them with appropriate food.

We ate here for dinner and lunch and have to rate it as one of the best Italian restaurants on this trip to Italy. The only thing that surpassed it was eating home cooked meals with my family! Zaraza has been in the same family for over 50 years. The family provided excellent service and the food was over the... More

We got the train from Rome to Frascati for lunch and intended to eat at the town square but after having a walk around the town we chose the Zaraza due to it's location, a raised patio area away from traffic and spectacular views towards Rome. The experience was enjoyable all the more for us being the only English people... More

The food is roman style, with a bit of a twist. Make sure you taste the Bucatini, you will love them. Also the Tiramisu con i pistacchi was quite good too. " It can be a little pricey but I think it's worth it. The food was really good.

It's a good restaurant. Not cheap but not expensive too. I hope to go again.
