Description: "La Fraschetta" di via San Francesco a Ripa è caratteristico, intimo e grazioso; propone un servizio cordiale e brillante, candidandosi senza difficoltà sia come ideale rifugio per una coppia in cerca di riservatezza sia per cene di lavoro e ritrovi amicali in una cornice neorustica e famigliare. La cucina, tendenzialmente vincolata alla nostra adorabile tradizione romana, spazia, con stile, dalla coda alla vaccinara agli spaghetti alla carbonara. Dolci sempre fatti in casa. Molto buona la carta dei vini; non mancano bianco e rosso della casa. Il locale è stato inaugurato nel 1976: lo staff proviene dalle esperienze di Ciceruacchio e Meo Patacca.

The atmosphere was excellent and the retaurant was really old world charm with a fired up Pizza Oven in the middle. Staff friendly with geat service at reasonable prices. Exactly what you would expect an Italian restaurant to look like. Pizza/Salad and a Tirimasou to die for...Brill

You can't sit outside at this restaurant, but, that said, it was good value, a cosy and authentic atmosphere, and popular with locals, not just tourists. It is advisable to book as it gets quite busy, particularly later on. Very good pasta and meat dishes, though the meat dishes available are good and chunky (ie for a man). I miss the old Italian dishes such as escalope of veal with a creamy mushroom sauce or lemony one - they seem to have disappeared off the menus in Italy on this trip. But the service was excellent and friendly.

I am surprised at the variation in evaluation of this little trattoria. However, I can only rate the experience that we had, which was very good. I only had one glass of wine, we both had a simple veal, and vegetables rather than salad, bread, olive ascolane and one dessert. All the food was well cooked and presented and the bill came to E50, which, whilst not cheap, was still reasonable value. We enjoyed the atmosphere and left feeling that it was a nice night out in a typical local Italian ristorante.

Whenever I visit Rome this is one of the places that I always make sure to return to - the food is great, its always busy with Italians (a great sign), and the atmosphere is nice, especially if you are with tourists. The tiramisu is brilliant.

Had pizza first and bruschetta with the ripest most delicious tomatoes I have ever had. Spaghetti with clams was excellent. Best tiramisu and panne cotta ever had. Would order all those dishes again. Nice cozy atmosphere and nice waitress.
