We were visitng Fondi on a day trip from Rome. We had read some reviews on TA but had actually intended going to a different restaurant. However, we were struck by hunger and found ourselves on the same street at Il Frantoio (and far away from the other one). Having whet our appetite just reading the menu, we went in.
First impression was that it was a very welcoming, warm atmosphere with relaxing background music. The building had once been a working olive press and you can still see the main structure and some of the equipment. We were the only diners in there but that made it easier to start up a conversation with the owners, which was very pleasant.
Now to the food - EXCELLENT! All locally sourced and made on the premises. Typical dishes of the area. We had the Ravioloni di Bufala e Spinaci in Salsa di Noci with a glass of Satrico, and the Pappardelle al Ragù di Cinghiale. The local olives and olive oil are also all most excellent. We didn't have dessert but rounded off with a coffee.
We definitely want to come here again and absolutely reccommend it!
