An extraordinarily pleasant experience! The menu items we selected were extraordinarily 'yummy', the wine appropriately priced & the service was attentive without becoming intrusive. Could not recommend it more highly!!

We dined at Frascati in January '15 and had a lovely night. It is a small and cozy but buzzy neighbourhood place. We were seated on the second level in a dimly lit back room, which unfortunately didn't have the energetic atmosphere from downstairs. Other than that the night was great. Lovely food- would recommend the grilled bread salad to... More

Small but very cozy place in SF and definitely worth a visit. Great food, lovely wine list and the best service! Also close to Polk street - so enjoy the food and then go for a late night drink afterwards.

Probably my favorite restaurant in the United States. The service is unbeatable and the decor in the restaurant is beautiful. The food is wonderful and the ambiance is fabulous. My favorite dish is the fresh pappardelle. (melts in your mouth!)

We have dined at Frascati for many, many years, always 5-star, but this visit was 2-star. We asked if owner changed recently, couldn't get an answer. Issues were: too fast a pace of service, over-cooked entree, down-graded wine options. The biggest issue was the manager at the door watching diners way too much, and audibly frequently hustling staff to clear... More

This is a fairly small restaurant located in the Russian Hill neighborhood, right off the Hyde cable car line. There are a few tables outside, which would be great on a nice day. We sat inside and thought the atmosphere was very nice. We had three courses and a bottle of wine and each item was exceptional. Everything on the... More

By chance, we jumped off the cable car and met a neighborhood resident close to Frascati. She raved about the restaurant and we were able to get a nice table for two. People working there are attentive, but the feel is relaxing and casual. The restaurant is a classic bistro serving all kinds of comfort food, fish, pasta. I would... More

Had not eaten at FRASCATI in a couple of years. Have had many memorable dinners here. It's still one of SF's hidden gems, perched at the top of SF's Russian Hill, an icon. Very popular with locals, off the beaten path for tourists, and a real treat for foodies. The food is always fresh, savory and, at least in part,... More

You must book in advance to eat in Russian hill but worth it. Cable stops right outside so easy to find, food and service excellent, wine too expensive.
