Description: "La Fraschetta" di via San Francesco a Ripa è caratteristico, intimo e grazioso; propone un servizio cordiale e brillante, candidandosi senza difficoltà sia come ideale rifugio per una coppia in cerca di riservatezza sia per cene di lavoro e ritrovi amicali in una cornice neorustica e famigliare. La cucina, tendenzialmente vincolata alla nostra adorabile tradizione romana, spazia, con stile, dalla coda alla vaccinara agli spaghetti alla carbonara. Dolci sempre fatti in casa. Molto buona la carta dei vini; non mancano bianco e rosso della casa. Il locale è stato inaugurato nel 1976: lo staff proviene dalle esperienze di Ciceruacchio e Meo Patacca.

“2 excellent dinners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our family of 9 had two amazing dinners there. The staff were most friendly, and very helpful with the menu. The bread basket was filled with thin freshly baked pizza slices, crispy and drizzled with fine EVOO. The roast piglet was juicy, and crackling perfect. You have to try their mussel "soup", one order is akin to a big pot enough for 2 and delicious to the last drop! Bit of a walk to Travestere, but it sure does build up an appetite! Bon appetito!

“Never go there anymore”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The waiter was very rude. He put the cutleries and the plant as decoration on the table like he wanted to throw them into our faces. The food were terrible, I don't know how can they call those mixed things is risotto, the taste omg was awful. When we asked for the bill he just said the total price and we had to ask again that we need the bill. He left and talked something to his colleague in Italian loudly, I heard he said something like bill, mother and we were shock. He was totally impolite and acted as an uneducated man. So disappointed.

“Seriously a scam, stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Please don't ever go here! We had a mediocre meal here but a horrible experience. We got the bill and right away the waiter says tip not included. We were charged for food that was never ordered and on top of that we were charged an amount that cost as much as an entree for a service charge that was never mentioned. Watching these people hustle every person in the street was rather annoying while trying to eat a nice dinner. "The talk of the town" all right. "Worst experience you will ever have at a restaurant". Do not waste your time here. It is a complete trap! We wish we could take it back after spending twice as much as we thought the bill would be. If you do eat here, you better double check the bill!

“Excellent local trattoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Good food, excellent atmosphere and great value for money. Our kids fell in love with the spaghetti alle vongole and my wife got an even better pasta dish with frutti di mare. The house white wine was so-so and maybe not something I would order again. The bruschetta al pomodoro was a great appetizer. I would probably rate restaurant a four out of five, but our kids saud it was a five :-)
