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.

I decided to come here after reading a lot of reviews, and my dinner did not disappoint. Very friendly staff and great food.

Four of us went for an evening meal, booked well in advance to be certain of getting a table. A small intimate restaurant, almost oppressively hot until some air was let in by leaving the front door open. Excellent food and good recommendation made for the wine. Our desserts were a little disappointing.

We celebrated my girlfriend's birthday in Frascati and we picked the right place. Excellent food, nice atmosphere, friendly service and a surprise dessert on the house. A great meal and a wonderful evening in Frascati

Frascati is ideally situated on a lovely section of Hyde street. The restaurant is small and romantically lit. The tables are fairly close together but not in an intrusive way. Our server was very solid and friendly and seemed to have a good depth of understanding with the menu and wine list. We found the food to generally be nicely... More

Excellent fine dining in a small neighborhood special place! Took my wife and daughter last night. Top notch service and fabulous food. Had duck and chicken dishes. Best chicken I have ever had! The menu is limited but adequate. Parking was a bear. Ended up 7 blocks away. Go early to find it. Or better yet, take a cab. We... More

We went to Frascati on the recommendation of our daughter. We had reservations and arrived a bit early, and our table was ready to our surprise, since the place was full. My wife the halibut in a fresh tomato sauce. It was delicious, perfectly cooked and light. I had the pappardelle ragu and was to die for. The service was... More
