No one speak one word of English, (even the word 'fish') the menu is all in Italian... The bottle of red wine tastes like vinegar that you buy from the cheap supermarket for cooking ONLY! And the food....God, I haven't had that kind of bad food in my life! We ordered one chicken dish and one veal, it came out... More

We did not know of this restaurant but passed by and it looked good. We ate inside - tables were very spread out and we did not feel crowded. We just had a light lunch - pasta and some house wine but were treated well. Our pasta was delicious - I had carbonara and my partner had fettucine with porcini... More

Well, me and my 6 friends were walking around Frascati and wanted to taste some food far from the centre of Rome and we stumbled upon this restaurant. The interior is beautiful and well decorated. We were seated comfortably with ample space. Our server, Diana, was very professional, nice and helped us enjoy our time despite the fact the place... More

We found this restaurant by purpose and decided to get in. Diana our host took very good care. The lunch was great and with a very reasonable price. If you happen to be in Frascati, visit this restaurant

We had a great lunch here. Mixed Antipasti for 2, 2 mains and a pudding with wine for just over 60 euros. Very traditional Osteria with some lovely old photos of the area on the wall. Highly recommended and thanks for the information office for the recommendation to us.

While in Frascati, found this restaurant on a side street and liked it so much we ate dinner there for 3 evenings. Food was fresh, well presented and delightful indeed. They seemed to be open early enough for your typical American tourist and I was pleased to be nearly the only couple in that early. The restaurant did fill up... More
