What a delightful experience! From a charming, warm welcome and stylish service throughout to excellent, skillfully cooked, absolutely delicious authentic Italian food, La Bisalta exceeded all our expectations and makes most alternatives in the area look mediocre by comparison.

Opened in 1993, the Italian restaurant, La Bisalta, named after the mountain range that dwarfs the hometown of the owner and chef Luigi Violino, is situated in the heart of Frome. Surrounded by mature trees, the setting of La Bisalta feels almost rural. Easily identifiable by its covered canvas entrance and ivy clad upper storey, this genuine Italian restaurant offers a wide range of classic dishes. All dishes are cooked to order with fresh local ingredients by chef Luigi, who together with his wife Susan, has justifiably earned a far reaching reputation for excellent food and friendly service.
