Whilst staying in Frascati we ate here twice. My husband and I went one evening and were most surprised to find the entire staff glued to a game show on TV. The food was fine but the atmosphere, wine and service was dismal. Our second visit with a group was much better. My pork escalope with lemon was tender and... More

I went to this restaurant because it was suggested by the staff in the hotel. It is a nice restaurant with lots of light. The food is of average quality. I ordered a pizza that was OK.

The food is what you would expect from a traditional Italian Trattoria great pasta dishes like spaghetti alle vongole ,penne arrabiata pizzas etc. We enjoyed good food good wine but wouldn't probably go on a Saturday night as really busy and felt a bit rushed.

Too many tables, some 200 people sitting and about 20 waiting. Long waiting time. They screwed up every single order: Instead of the trofie pasta we got bucatini, instead of arugula salad a normal salad, instead of meat with porcini mushroom we got it with arugula. The meat was chewy and the pizza badly cooked. We came there for spaghetti... More

We stopped here for pizza. They set up extra tables in the evenings in the p.zza montegrappa. Service was a little rushed and table was way too small for three people to eat pizza.

We came across this restaurant by accident, having arrived in the town after a long day, and struggling to find anywhere open before 7. The staff were about to eat when we arrived at 6.40 but we were welcomed in, told it would be a while for food, then served an excellent cheap local wine, some focaccia and an Italian-only... More

We stumbled upon this small restaurant on our first afternoon in Frascati and sat outside. My wife loved the red table wine and our food was very good. We decided to go back another evening and felt we were in a neighborhood family restaurant and again enjoyed everything we had, especially the pasta dished.

From all the three meals we had in Frascati, this is the one I'll take home. Wonderful pasta, good service and regular prices.

This place was recommended to us by the hotel. We had excellent pizza there and enjoyed the family atmosphere. They greeted all the customers as if they were regulars there and it was nice to see the whole family, including the matriarc, take care of their customers.
