Went with a small group of people without reservation. Very good food, portions are huge so be careful ordering. The price was very reasonable, service very good and they spoke English. Would recommend and would return,

The food is excellent in this place. A very rich and original antipasti della casa is a great starter. Both the pasta and the meat are high quality

Fantastic restaurant in Frascati that serves amazing local and creative cuisine along side an extensive wine list (including local wines, as MUST try!)! Service is absolutely impeccable! RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED. Location is excellent with ample parking and just a few meters from the town centre. There is a comfortable outdoor eating area which is great on a warm evening...but inside is... More

The lady who welcomed us was charming and helpful with the menu. My pasta was superb and I did not want the course to end it was so delicious and the salad I had with it was more interesting than many

They've done a superb job of converting what is effectively a shack in a car park into a welcoming and comfortable bistro. Service was slow (by Italian standards) and the food good but nothing amazing. I was pleased but wouldn't rate this as highly as others do.

Amazing platter of antipasto ... good main courses( I had steak with rosemary sauce) though not all of us were happy that there was no fish on the menu. Good service. Parking horrendous... walk there!

Dined here with friends because of numerous favorable reviews on Tripadvisor but were disappointed. We were the first in the restaurant and yet they plunked us right next to the kitchen, all the way in the back (I would have asked for another table but my friends don't like to do that). Two of us ordered spaghetti carbonara and it... More

Chose the place based on reviews. All true, place is great. We've arrived about 15 min before it opened for dinner - good decision! - place got packed fast. In-between five of us we ordered many dishes and all were so tasty! Finished everything, even though portions were unexpectedly big. Most impressed with salads, vegetables and pasta. Nice wine selection... More
