“Cant wait to go back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Hands down my favourite place in Frascati, and well worth leaving Rome for. Don't miss the starter plate and the chick pea and truffle oil dip. The menu is very original and the staff is friendly and super at helping you choose as a tourist. The restaurant itself is very cute and intimate great for a romantic night, or a large party (i've done both there!!). Good Authentic Italian with fresh local grown produce! Absolutely go!

“A place to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

If in Frascati this is the place to go. Very nice ambience, very good food, not to be missed out. You have to try the pasta con gorgonzola e radicchio, they are delicious. All in all very food food choice somewhat different what is usually offered in the Rome area.

“A disappointing evening”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

At times, it felt like Faulty Towers.

Several of our orders were wrong or not taken, which did not make for a great experience. Tempting to think it was the language barrier, but even some locals had difficulties. Perhaps just a bad night??!!

Having said that, the food (whatever arrived) was of good ingredients and well cooked. Hence the 3*.

“Deelish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

It was a little hard to find, but totally worth the search! This was one of the best meals we've had in our 5-week vacation in Italy! We read the recommendations on trip advisor and decided on Ara Anua. We had an appetizer that was a selection of cheeses, salumi and vegetables that included chick peas in a creamy truffle sauce...to die for! All of the foods in this selection were unusually accented with herbs: a room-temperature omelet with mint...so surprisingly delicious! The first and second courses were equal to the appetizers. Exceptional beef, delicious pastas! Be sure to go!

“Just as good as the reputation is”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

Occasion was a birthday (lunch) and we were in total seven people. Food was superb, Drinks (wine, beer and water) excellent. Especially appreciated that they use own produce or locally grown. I will absolutely go back there. Caters for vegetarians. No fish, main focus is meat.
