“Don't bring a big group”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I was here with 26 other people from all around Norway. The waiter was really helpful, but was helping us all alone. Everything took too much time. The starter was OK, but the main course sucked: dry meat, a sauce that tasted nothing and vegetables that - well - didn't match the meat. Everything was looking and tasting average, like the kitchen staff had too many plates to get ready at the same time.

“Great Italian/French food in central Trondheim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I've eaten at Frati several times, and the food always impresses me. This time I had lamb with creamed potatoes, which was great. Previously I've ordered sirloin and tenderloin, with duchesse potatoes, both of which was excellent. My girlfriend ordered halibut, also a good choice. The deserts are also wonderful, especially the raspberrys au gratin and the frutto di bosco. The prices are by no means expensive by Norwegian standards (but then again, Norwegian standards are expensive compared to almost anything else...).

The waiters, however, vary from polite and entertaining to simply stupid. Visitors above average size should also be aware that the restaurant's pretty cramped - there is very little space between the tables and you might end up being more intimate with the one sitting nex to you than your partner.

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Arrived at about 7:30 on a Tuesday night with a colleague. The restaurant was crowed, but we got a table for two. The menu is a standard for an Italian restaurant in Norway, but the wine list was more than above the average – excellent.
The staff was helpful and professional, but a little too pushy at the end w.r.t. to order more or ask for the bill..
The food tasted good – correct temperature, steak prepared correct. The outfit of the restaurant gives an good atmosphere where you can relax.
