We'll see you again soon!
We all had pizzas tonight. We'll order the Greek/Mediterranean again! The polenta croutons are fabulous on the Caesar salad & the tomato soup was wonderful! We also enjoy & appreciate Thomas and his great sense of humor.

This has become our 'go to' restaurant. No matter what night we come here, the food is consistently excellent and the service is impeccable. The specials are always well prepared and very unique -- particularly the steaks and the shellfish. The chef does a wonderful job choosing high quality ingredients and finishing the dish with wonderful sauces. It's always a culinary delight.
From a service perspective, we never have to wait for a table (we do make a reservation). We usually have Jason as our waiter -- his service is outstanding.
We'll be back.

Great food and service
My second time here was as amazing as the first. I had a ribeye special that was available that night. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The garlic a mashed potatoes and grilled veggies were perfectly paired. The service level at this restaurant is impeccable. I love the service. Keep it up!

Loved the place as first time
Loved the place as first time visitor. I had the salmon and my wife had the steak. Both were excellent. Only issue was the small tables. Seems that the small layout was meant for a bar instead of a restaurant. But we got used to it. I think it is a hit for Frisco. We will definitely be back.

Humble but good
Very good location with plenty of parking places.
Humble deco but with excellent service.
Their pasta and pizzas are very good.
The price is reasonable

Great dinner @ Crudo!
I might order the Sole every visit....with the Spinach Salad! And the Pizza!
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Gem in Frisco!
This is a gem! Food, service and beverages are all outstanding - can be a bit noisy but well worth it.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Vibe. Will dine again soon.
Great place. Great food they really use fresh ingredients and a great menus for all. I drove up from Dallas to meet friends and would now drive up just to dine there. The Owner manager works the floor great touch. The place has a good vibe to it.

A Frisco Treasure
We have been to Crudo at least 3 times in the past month. It's an intimate restaurant and the food is fresh and beautifully prepared. My husband always has the tortellini and can't bear to pass it up for another dish. I've tried the delicious papparadelli with lamb ragu and a beautiful grilled shrimp with asparagus, tomatoes and capellini. We love the carpaccio and have also tried the crab cake which was heavy on crab and light on filler and bathed in an amazing sauce. Jason has waited on us the past 2 times and is attentive and informative. We highly recommend Crudo but don't go on the weekends without a reservation.
5/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
In Frisco, you won't get better. The food is wonderful, but it is the owner and staff that make this place special. You will never be disappointed in either. If you like pasta, you must try the hand-made tortellini. If you like butter, you have found your home! It is highly recommended.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Some of the best Italian food available. Great pizza too. Small place so get reservations. A little crowded and a little noisy but worth it.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food in an incredible ambiance.. The owner is very friendly and makes sure you are having a great time
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This small little restaurant was perfect for date night or dining with a close friend. It was dimly lit, moderate noise and seemed to have a lot of smaller tables for 2s or 4s (in addition to the bar). We ordered the focasia bread as an appetizer and loved it. I had the gnocchi, but also tried a bite of the special of the night which was a lobster ravioli and both were great. We will definitely go back.
6/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything we have eaten at Crudo, over multiple visits, has been great. Small and crowded but if you don't mind that the ambience fun/energetic. Waiter Jason is the best. Must have the crab salad special with avocado and mango - to die for.....
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
It's one of the best resturants on any level. Every time we've been there has been excellent.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service and atmosphere was great. Tis is a small place so you can get a little more intimate with your dinner companions. The food was great and they have a pretty good wine list.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service
Every time I have gone the staff is amazing. Waiters know the menu and can answer a series of questions if you have them. The food I outstanding and the staff will even suggest a wine pairing with your entree.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome dining experience
Awesome dining experience once again. This is our fourth time at Crudo. The proprietor, Daniel is always present with a warm greeting. He is attentive to detail and it shows through consistent food quality and professional but personal service. Here is a shout out to our server, Gino for making our birthday dinner extra special.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for lunch and dinner where you get to know owner and wait staff due to its quaint size
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
For all those that had a bad night!
I dont understand some of the other reviewers. Why give a restaurant a bad review for being small, small spaces get loud don't stay. As for the food especially the papperdelle, which is amazing there is plenty of lamb, the noodle is a supposed to be big and if 18 is too much for you then go to olive garden.$18 is cheap for what you get and the type of restaurant you're at. Everything is great trust your server order features. As for the service I have been served by every waiter and they are all top notch, they know the menu, wine list, and most importantly remember the customers and greet them like family. The bartenders are equally amazing and the drinks are unique and made with fresh juices. Dont listen to the few that gave bad reviews!
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food and service but
Drink was a bit overpriced and beer selection was limited. That was the only downfall. I will return.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Great Neighborhood Addition
My husband and I love this place for date night, and our kids love it for the pizza and excellent pastas. The menu is varied, and while we are happy sharing appetizers and salads, the mains, particularly seafood and the specials, are always spot-on, too. Service is usually very good, but can fall off during busy periods. The place is a bit loud, and always happening, so reserve for weekends or peak times. All in all, a solid, if not transcendent, dining experience.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Daniel and his staff have done a wonderful job in making this restaurant one of our favorite places to go.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining here after reading sterling reviews. The menu did not have many dishes, but had an impressive variety ranging from wood fired pizza to wipe you plate clean entrees! The pasta dish with lamb was worth a second trip specifically. Seafood is the chef's specialty as well. due to the small size of the dining room / bar area, the chef has time to make sure each dish is perfect when it gets to you.
Reservations needed, especially on weekends as it fills up quickly. Excellent service!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dining Experience
We thoroughly enjoy going to Crudo's. The food and service are outstanding. It's just a fun place to sit back and relax and experience an evening of great dining.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Crudo is a neighborhood gem and a foodies delight. It is small so always get a reservation. The service is always outstanding. The pizza is fantastic! We were a bot disappointed in the lamb kabobs because it was so little. That is the only entree I would stay clear of. The lava cake was amazing.
Love this place!

Wonderful Neighborhood restaurant in Frisco. Great Atmosphere. Food excellant!!

Wonderful Food and Service
Crudo has been a perfect find for our family. The food NEVER disappoints and the service is exceptional.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will be back
Loved the warm casual style of the inside wood walls, steel ceiling, low light and seeing the fire stove in the kitchen. This is a terrific place to have dinner with a couple of friends or a one-on-one romantic dinner. Very nice place! We will be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely Find in Frisco
We were dining with a group and had a great time. Johncarlo, our waiter, was outstanding - engaging, provided some great wine advice and made us feel like regulars.
Our appetizer was flatbread with feta and lovely mixed olives. Delicious & a great way to start the meal.
I saw lots of items I wanted to try. I had a special of sea bass over vegetable risotto ($32). The risotto was well cooked and tasty, the seabass (over fished I know!) was good, a little fishy, but well cooked. My wife had sole over tomotoe-y couscous ($18). She really liked the fish and I really liked the couscous.
Specials were pricey in the $25-34 range but other menu items were below $20, & sandwiches & pizzas would make a nice inexpensive meal.

Best food we've had in a long time.
My wife and I decided to try out a new restaurant for dinner. Most of the reviews we saw said the food and service were great, and that could not have been truer for our experience as well. This is the first time I can remember in a long time where we both ate every bit of every course (appetizer, entree, dessert). The staff was extremely knowledgeable and attentive, but not obtrusive, and by the end of our evening it almost felt like we were part of the family. If you are looking for a quieter experience, just go a little earlier in the evening, there wasn't much noise at all until around 7:30, and that was on a Saturday night. One last tip, if the Lobster Ravioli is an available special, get it!! It was amazing.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
They had several specials that night, all of which sounded amazing. We settled on the Sea Bass and Osso Bucco. Both were very good. It was very noisy, so don't go there for a quiet romantic evening. Service was great and we'll be going back again soon.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service and attitude of the entire staff is excellent. Offers a wide men u that will offer everyone something
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Crudo
Our new favorite go to place. Our waitor Sean is very knowledgeable and always provides us with top notch service!

Creative cuisine with outstanding flavor. Beautiful presentations.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice dinner
We really enjoyed our evening at Crudo. The service was excellent and food was very good. There wasn't a drop of food left on any plate (appetizer, entrée or dessert)! We both ordered off the specials for the evening. Waiter and other staff worked very hard to make sure we had anything we needed. Next time, I'll ask for a different table as we got the one right by the door and it was distracting and a little chilly.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, lousy bar
Food is consistently good. However, the bartender is annoying and bar service is dysfunctional.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very pleasant evening. Was greeted at door promptly. Even though we were early for reservation, they were able to seat us. James, our waiter, was friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. Specials included the lobster ravioli , wonderful. Our party also had the risotto and gnocchi. Again, very good. Will be back.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seems to be more and more impressive each time I go. Wait staff is the best. Lobster ravioli is one of my favorites!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The pomegranate martini was spectacular. The lobster bisque was so good I can't wait to order it again. The service fast friendly and all around great. Definitely will be a regular destination.
It's definitely cozy, romantic but would be great for a family as well.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experience! Tried
Excellent experience! Tried the chicken that was on special. It was slow baked for 6 hours, the last 2 hours in the wood burning oven. My goodness it was good. The lobster bisque is the best in Dallas. Kudos to Crudo!!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Although we did read the reviews first we decided to give it a try. We normally don't like overcrowded scenes and loud but the experience was great . Tables far enough apart(just barely)and the noise factor wasn't bad. Wasn't seated at the time of arrival but had space at the bar. Go after 8 if possible, started clearing out around 8:30,. Food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Procusitto and fig crostini was delightful, along with mussels in garlic and wine sauce. We both had the oven fired pizzas that you witness from the kitchen cooking. The chianti was good along with the apple pie dessert . Will definitely will be back
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Made reservations here after going to Tru Fire and seeing an hour wait. Made reservations for 745 but got there early to try out the bar but the manager (owner?) manning the hosting duties accommodated us anyway and got us right to a table even with the restaurant at near capacity. Had the calamari (great) and lobster ravioli (pretty good, ravioli itself was excellent, sauce wasn't quite up to par). The wife had chicken Parmesan which was fantastic. Ended with apple walnut pie
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous meal Saturday night at Crudo Wood Fired Taverna. We tried the french onion soup, asparagus bisque, split some very tasty muscles and split a delicious filet entree that was prepared to perfection. Topped it off with a bottle of Cabernet and it was the perfect meal. We love to taste a variety of items so we almost always go for a soup or salad, appetizer and split an entree. The prices here are very competitive for an upscale quality meal. The service was fantastic with the wait staff catering to our every need. Our waiter was very informative. The lighting at the restaurant was perfect, dim but not too dark. I like the size of the restaurant too. Small and intimate. Look forward to going back.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and Service
My boyfriend and I come here about once a week. The service that we have received is outstanding and the employees always remember our faces, which makes the dining experience personable. Crudo’s food and adult beverage offerings have been consistently good each time we have visited. We recommend the French onion soup, lobster bisque, rosemary lamb skewers, lobster ravioli and the papardelle with pulled lamb. Really just about everything to eat here is great!

Best in Frisco
This is by far our favorite restaurant in Frisco with the best food, wine and service. We even enjoy just sitting at bar for good wine and food. It is an upscale gem right next to Starwood and always a great night out. Ask for Gianni if you go. He is an exceptional waiter and genuine person.
