We checked trip advisor for restaurant recommendations. Ara Anua was awesome. The service was first class as was the recommendation for the house starter - the chickpea dish as part of the mixed starter was delicious. The main dish did not disappoint either. The local wine was really good as well. Best meal of our 10 night tour between Napoli... More

We asked the cab driver about the best restaurant in downtown Frascati and she dropped us of here. Great service, friendly atmosphere, really good food, we had pasta amatriciana, and a couple of steak dishes and i heard no complaints... just ohhhs and ahhs. I also like the ambience inside the restaurant, although the facade is rather modest. Good stuff!... More

We were a party of five, business associates and one wife, who ate here in November, 2016. The staff were very helpful and they all spoke excellent English. We had a variety of choices. Two people shared the special appetizer which turned out to be an enormous amount of meat, cheese and vegetables. The primi and secondi offerings were all... More

Order melon, but received mozzorella "because melon is out of season". Service was good, meat was great, grilled vegetables poor. Prices are on the high side, so in total 2 dots.

Ate here on a busy Friday night. Service was excellent. The waiter really made us feel welcome and was passionate about the food and how it was produced locally. Had lovely house wine, mixed starter and pasta main courses. Were stuffed leaving. Can't go wrong with this place-ticked all the boxes!

Went here based on trip advisor reviews....shared the recommended (and pretty awesome) starter (picture posted). Booking is a must (they were turning away people off the street every 10 minutes). Great atmosphere and knowledgeable waiter...good wine (which we found pretty reasonably priced in frascati in general). ~50 Euros a head including wine.

Lunch was so good, we are considering heading back for dinner... We've been in Frascati for four days and wish we had eaten here on day one- it's the best restaurant we've eaten in so far. Start with the antipasto- share it. It's big enough for two. Move on to the mixed grill. And, don't forget the fresh strawberry salad.... More

A true dining experience. very personalized, super friendly waiter service. House wine could not be different from the context. Always ask for the suggestion of the day dish from the waiter because the availability of fresh produce varies. I recommend !!

Place to go if you're a meat lover. Tagliata con sale - sliced steak with three different salts is recommended. Starter platter is great.

Starter was amazing, eat too much, had steak with walnuts and balsamic Vingear, it was nice, but potatoe had a lot of olive oil. Lamb was very fat & carbonna was very salty.
