I enjoyed this restaurant, the lady who acts as the maitre d" was very entertaining. Good food , not as big portions normally served in Italian restaurants but the quality was good.

“Owner and staff add an extra special touch”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Italian food is quite good. The special of the day - lobster with angel hair pasta in a rose sauce had chunks of real lobster. It is a great restaurant that we will be returning to

“What a great find! One of the best!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We went to the restaurant last night before attending the Wizard of Oz at the Ed Mirvish Theater last night and will definitely go again. AMAZING! Along with our good friends we make a point of picking a new restaurant that we've never been to previously every time we go the theater. Frascati is a hidden gem on a street with a lot of competition.
It was fairly quiet as January often is for restaurants but the experience was perhaps the best out of dozens of differing dining-out nights we've had. Everyone at the table had different appetizers and main courses, from salads, smoked salmon and mussels, to veal chop, pasta, salmon and chicken marsala. Without exception everyone raved about how good their meals were. This is rarely the case as usually someone is disappointed with their meals on our evenings out. Service was superior without being overbearing. The tiramisu dessert was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and we decided to opt for Spanish Coffee just to help prolong the pleasures we were having. If we hadn't needed to run to the play, we'd have settled in and extended the experience.
We highly recommend this restaurant to those visiting Toronto, or those in the city who are looking for some little restaurant they can call their own. We will be going back.

“Wow, What a great meal”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We had dinner at Frascati while visiting Toronto. The service, food and staff were amazing. It was very quiet there, being the week after new years, but the service was outstanding. The menu is vast, and the wine list is great! We truly enjoyed our quiet dinner, and had a lovely visit with the co-owner who made sure that our dinner was memorable. We will definitely go back for another meal when we are in the city!

“Better than expected”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Not bad at all. It was empty when we arrived on a Friday in December when we couldn't get reservations elsewhere, so I was expecting a blah experience. Was pleasantly surprised instead. Insalata caprese and grilled calamari as a main. Both were very good. Service was solid. Others had pasta, including lobster in tomato cream sauce on angel hair pasta, which were also very good. Price point was very reasonable. Not brilliant, but better than I thought it was going to be.
