$78 per person for a diminuitive 4 course dinner and $45 for the paired wines. Many of the dishes are nearly authentic but most lacked a commited taste. Most of the wines were non-events except for the Barolo. Few days later and still taste the Puttanesca sauce and not in a good way. The salumi were good, the bread and... More

I wish I could give this place 5 stars but I must say that everything was wonderful except for some of the food itself. We found the service to be impeccable, however our reservation was at 9:00pm and we were not seated until about 10:00pm. It was a special occasion for us, so we didn't mind waiting but after about...

I've dined at Frasca every so often (more emphasis on the "so" than the "often") since it opened a number of years ago. The evening usually consisted of some great and some very good dishes, along with a dish or two that just didn't work for me. Wine and service were consistently excellent. On a recent visit Frasca has definitely... More

This is, quite simply, a GREAT restaurant. The owners have been educated by Tom Keller in Napa (French Laundry), targeted the cuisine of Friuli, No. Italy, and leave no detail unexamined! I brought friends from Europe, who routinely seek Michelin starred restaurants in European countries, to Frasca to see what little Boulder can do with food. Every single guest has... More

Every time we've visited Frasca it has been a superlative experience. Expensive, yes, but no more so than you'd be asked to pay for a similar experience in other cities. So, don't go if you're looking for reasonable prices and don't appreciate the whole experience of truly wonderful Northern Italian cooking and great wines. And, for authentic pizzas, go to... More

This is by far, the most pretentious restaurant in Boulder. Who knows why because their food is so meager. The servers make you feel like a refugee. The seating is oh-so-modern and uncomfortable. I would definitely give this place a skip. Then again, you probably wouldn't get in anyway because they take reservations months in advance. It was embarrassing to... More

Amazing example of northern Italian cuisine. The owner of the winery from Italy was there to talk about the wine we bought?!!?!

So, we've been coming to Frasca since it opened in 2004. Initially, it was a bit uneven but it quickly became one of the best places in town, with one of the most outstanding wine lists. We come several times per year for celebrations and special guests. Not only is the food consistently good but the service is above par.... More

The wine list is extensive and very well put together. The menu was varied and simply delicious. We were served at a relaxed and very enjoyable pace, cannot wait to return …. This was... More

As always, had a lovely, unhurried, delicious dinner at Frasca's a week ago. Perhaps I've been spoiled since the owner, Bobby Stukey ( a Master Sommelier) and all his staff remembered us from previous visits, and did their utmost to provide the best, friendliest service, and also gave us our favorite table! Frasca works with the local Colorado farmers and... More
