La Frasca restaurant. We had made reservations for 6:00pm. We were seated immediately upon our arrival. The waiter was very polite. The manager was also polite. The service was nice and fast enough. The food was excellent. I had the tenderloin and my wife had the gnocchi. It was all super! I asked for rare and the inside of my meat was more brown than red. Nonetheless, the meat still had an amazing taste and had a very nice pairing gravy. The only thing is we usually enjoy a little quieter and less busy but I still recommend La Frasca. We would go back!

La Frasca is a good choice for a smart-casual and relaxed Italian meal. We’ve been to La Frasca twice since it changed from Il Mercato and I’m trying to find my new favourite items on the menu. I used to always have two appetizers as a meal but since the changeover, I’m having trouble finding 2 appetizers I prefer. They still have excellent rice croquettes but I’m missing the old shredded cabbage salad. On our most recent visit, everyone in our group was happy with their choices: shared mussels (in tasty tomato sauce), rice croquettes, beef tenderloin, italiano mac and cheese and slow braised chicken pizza with artichokes and spinach.
La Frasca is very conveniently located in the downtown core on Spring Garden Road close to where we stay when we’re in Halifax.
We found the service very attentive and prompt. The playlist of music seemed well thought out and conducive to a light and happy atmosphere.
The staff at La Frasca were very welcoming to the wee one in our group and saw to her needs, but I would suggest going very early in the evening if you must take small children.

And it IS expensive. Four appetizers and a bottle of wine came to $130!!! Waaaay too expensive. The wine has a crazy mark-up. The food is outstanding. Amazingly delicious and authentic. The waitstaff is very well trained. They know their product including wine. I was impressed. The ambiance is lovely. I loved it there. BUT...I will think again before I go back because of the expense. I might save La Frasca for an anniversary or something. Too bad. If they lowered their wine prices more people might go more regularly. All in all you will not be disappointed. It is a little noisy though...enjoy.

Every dish was amazing , and great service. The polenta is special and the calamari very light and tender. We will return.
