An unexpected Italian delight, although not cheap

A very varied menu with lots of different flavour combinations which marks Frasca out from many other Italian restaurants. Some of the dishes such as the Cannelloni with lobster and tangerine were exceptional as was the pasta with duck sausage...but you will likely need deep pockets when the bill... read more

I went twice, in the same evening, during a visit to Boulder for a professional conference. First my friends and I went for an aperitivo (the bartender makes fantastic negroni) with salumi and cheeses. We didn't have a reservation but it was early enough (before 6 pm) so it was not a problem to be seated right away. Later in... More

Our meal was absolutely stunning. The service was perfect in our opinion, as it was friendly, comprehensive, but not intrusive. The two of us ordered different items and loved them to the point of not wanting to give any away for tasting. Of course, we wanted more of the other person's food. All of the ingredients were top notch, and... More

We had a set menu and every step was delicious. We had a terrific table, a super well written wine list (ok, dossier) and a nettle pesto pasta that I will not soon forget. Bravo.

It took a few months to get into Frasca so I was a bit skeptical as to how the food and service would be but after having a Valentine's Day dinner there, I can honestly say everything was top notch and excellent. From the greeting by the manager to the recommendations by the Sommelier and lets not forget the impeccably... More

took my wife for her birthday and was truly amazed (again!), at the service, the food and the experience. Even had my son with us and although initially he was not sure about the menu, enjoyed everything put in front of him. Worth saving up for as it is an out of mind experience for this type of food. We... More

I was invited by a good friend to have dinner in this superb restaurant. I don´t know if this is common, but he arranged to have dinner served at the table of the chef, so we where sitting in the kitchen enjoying a tremendous meal and the great view of everything being prepared. I have to recommend this place highly!

It's an absolutely incredible meal. It's not a place to go for a quick bite on a dime, but if you want to really enjoy a memorable meal that lasts all night with amazing service, this is without a doubt where you should do that. I've been twice, and both times was meals that we talked for months, likely years,... More

Frasca is fabulous in all areas. The food is incredible, the service is second to none, the wine list impressive. By the far the best restaurant in the area. I agree with other reviewers that it is not cheap but high quality always comes at a price. This was the first time we took our son. He was concerned he... More
