Description: Frati is the taste of Italy - in the middle of Trondheim. For over 40 years has the Italian restaurant served tasty dishes, and is known for its tempting appetizers, better dinners and a wide selection of fine wines. In the family run restaurant, good ingredients are spcied up with joy and friendly people. The hospitality is great, and everything is arranged for you to relax and enjoy an evening of good food and good company in a real Italian restaurant.

“The pizza is nothing special and NOT Italian!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

The pizza is nothing special and NOT Italian... and boring. What more can I say. I don't know about the service. It was alright I guess (although what does it matter with bad food).

“Italian food sans passion”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Frati is an established restaurant, serving Italian cuisine for the norwegian palate. Food is bland, but edible, no surprises. Earlier a budget family restaurant, recent pricing puts it out of that category. Service is ok, but expect to be yelling a lot, the rowdiness of the locale makes normal conversation impossible. Would not visit again.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We had a party of 6 and had a good meal but not great. The atmosphere and decor had almost a wine cellar look and feel to it even though we were on the second floor. I thought the menu selections were somewhat limited. For instance, there were no veal dishes, only a few appetizers (mostly seafood) and only a few pastas. The option of pizza as an appetizer also was odd for an upscale restaurant. One of our party had a pasta dish and the serving size was enormous. I had salmon which was tasty and well prepared. Most everyone enjoyed their meal but didn't hear any "wows". The tiramisu for dessert was very average. Overall, a good restaurant in downtown Trondheim but I wouldn't go out of my way to go. The service was good. They had english menus too.
