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.

I chose this hotel because of other reviewers comments and ignored the Aussie reviewer who said he cooked better at home. How right he was. It felt like we were eating in a cave, not atmospheric but claustrophobic and food was poor.

We had dinner here on 24th and 26th March 2014, having been recommended by our hotel to go there. On both occasions we felt very welcome as soon as we stepped inside. All the staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and efficient. The restaurant is very busy, with locals (always a good sign) and with visitors. The first night my wife had the lamb (a local speciality) and I had the pork. Both dishes were very good (if slightly too salty for us - but not a big deal). The second night we both had scaloppine limone, which was excellent. For pudding we ate pana cotta and tiramisu, both of which were really good. The bill was extremely reasonable. In summary, this is a very nice little restaurant, with great staff and very good food. You should try it!

Want a busy, basic good food, typical old fashioned Trattoria in Trastevere than here is your place. A very busy place that had a stream of people, locals and tourists, alike coming in all through the evening. Food was what you would expect but was well cooked and nicely presented. Wine was fine from v.reasonable house to €30 upper limit. Nice place to people watch and whilst there was always a demand for your table you never felt pressurised to leave.

Been here on march 2014. ?34 for two people with antipasti, primo piatto and wine for two.

Italian decor, really busy and packed with locals. Food was great and the bill surprisingly low.

food is excellent. wine is perfect. very friendly staff. especially pizza is one of the best you can have in rome. be careful they start serving at 7pm. if you go earlier you have to wait until they open the doors. reservation is recommended. full even weekdays.
