Visited before a wine tasting event nearby and essentially enjoyed our meal. I have to say, we were rushed by our server. The food was quite good, the wine was pricey, and we felt like she was trying to get us out as quickly as possible. it will be a while before I return

A popular restaurant, friendly and efficient service if a bit crowded. Ask for the corner table at the front of the restaurant if you want a reasonably quiet conversation. The food is delicious and the servings of reasonable size so that you can manage an appetizer as well as an entree. A bit pricey.

This was one of the highlights of our Nova Scotia trip. All food we ordered was delicious, fresh, well done. Service was very good and attentive from all interactions. Atmosphere was awesome - great decor and feel all around. I won't say anything else, just go- you won't be let down.

This would be my fifth visit at La Frasca. It was early Friday night and the place had yet to fill up. So it was quiet and my wife and I got a nice tiny table, hidden away in a corner. Our waiter, Josh, was perfect: attentive, friendly and experienced. We had a fine yet very inexpensive bottle of Argentinian... More

Amazing what a decorator can do to a building! It was so different than the previous restaurant in that building. Loved the decor; it gave me a warm and comfy feeling! The Italian menu was great. We were there for lunch so we had appetizers. My husband chose capesante; they were the best scallops I have ever tried. The presentation... More

This is an excellent restaurant for Italian food. The decor is interesting and gives the place atmosphere but the tables are so close together it is hard to move through them to get to your place. Once seated however, the experience is very enjoyable. The service is fast and friendly and the food is amazing with some dishes offering home... More

This restaurant is operated by the same folks that run the Bicycle Thief. The food is delicious and the service friendly but slow. Don't come here if you're in a rush to get to a show. I would echo the comments that the decor is very nicely done but ruined to some extent by the overcrowding of chairs. Even getting... More

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Pretty much everything is home made and the choices are plenty. The service is always friendly and professional. Will be back again.

This was an over-due visit that my wife strongly suggested. We were quickly greeted and seated into a quaint corner surrounded by brick walls. The décor was nice and the service upbeat and professional. We seemed to wait a long time between being seated and offered drinks but our orders were taken shortly after that. The menu leans heavy to... More

I've been to one of the other restaurants owned by the same group a few times and loved it. We decided to give this restaurant a try on a weekend away. It was a Saturday night so it was quite busy, we called ahead for a reservation. As others have noted, it is loud when you walked in and the... More
