Frascati is a Mediterranean style bistro, located in one of San Francisco’s most desirable neighborhoods – Russian Hill. When a guest walks through the door of Frascati, he or she is initially treated to a friendly and comfortable dining room. Frascati encompasses a truly European aura, but is also a cozy, San Francisco neighborhood bistro. This tri-level restaurant features warm colors, high ceilings, antique light fixtures and street views of cable cars clanging up and down Hyde Street. The natural light and energetic atmosphere all convey a lively spirit.

Our cuisine is inspired from the Mediterranean coast and has strong Californian influences. The menu shifts frequently to utilize the best and freshest ingredients any season has to offer. Also, we pride ourselves on all of our house made desserts and ice creams.

Of equal importance, Frascati has become known for having an eclectic wine list which nicely complements the food.

Our party of five all had different dishes: all were superb! The half chicken was a huge hit, the salmon perfectly cooked with perfectly crispy skin, the pork chop tender and tasty, and our Italian-American family all thought the pasta dishes were fantastic, authentic, and that the homemade noodles were a perfect consistency. Then dessert... fabulous! Rebecca, the co-owner, was our server; she could not have been more warm, welcoming, informative, and humorous. We'd come back just to visit with her again. Also, we all enjoyed the warm, comfortable interior and lively atmosphere. A winner!

This is one of our all-time favorite neighborhood restaurants in Russian Hill. Family owned and operated and it shows! John love, laughter, and comfort food. We’ve never had a bad meal and I’m quite sure we’ve tried every single thing on the menu. Eat here, you won’t be disappointed! Make a reservation before you go but save one for us! ❤️🔥🙌

It had been months since we were last at Frascati (due to the pandemic), and we were so happy to be back. Jon and Rebecca are such wonderful hosts; the food is creative and well-executed; and the atmosphere has that vibe that makes neighborhood restaurants like this so enjoyable. Always a good experience.

We had a reservation at 8:30 but were able to be seated at around 8:15. The service was timely and our waiter was helpful but not overbearing. Food was outstanding. One waiter saw me trying to figure out what kind of tea was the English breakfast tea I ordered after the meal and brought me the tea packet to take a picture of which was very kind.

Outstanding food!
I cannot emphasize how great the food is. Fresh, cooked to perfection, and delicious. Frascati is a keeper. I know it’s a neighborhood place and parking is murder on non hill, but we still make it over there just for the food and friendly service.

We were in town and decided to try Frascati and boy was it a delicious dinner. From the service to the attentiveness to the food was all five star. The in house pistachio ice cream was to die for. Everything was awesome. Thank you for a wonderful evening! When back in SF, we’ll be back.

We were delighted with Frascati. It has a neighborhood bistro feel. The owner and his wife are host and hostess are friendly and accessible. The menu is varied and all dishes by our group of four were excellent. We would definitely return.

Very underwhelming. Noisy. Worse champagne drink I have ever had. My first course on the menu was out and I was notified when they brought my husband salad. Manager assumed we were sharing a salad and when I informed her they were out of what I ordered, she just left. Food was not seasoned well. Vegetable stalks could not be cut with the butter knife offered. Manager didn’t care. She did the talking & never asked me what’s I didn’t like. I should have kept my original reservation at a wharf restaurant. This place was not worth the trip fare to get there. The concierge highly recommended this place & I will inform them to stop. This experience made my special day less enjoyable. I will blog it in my hospitality & tourism writings.

We dine out frequently and this was one of our best experiences in any city ever. Owner, Rebecca, was our waitress and was wonderfully attentive and personable. Rebecca makes their desserts herself - we had the blueberry cheesecake which was fantastic. If I could give this restaurant a 6-star, I would.

Met clients at the restaurant for 6pm tuesday reservation. Service was effective and timely, the food was amazing. There is not a bad dish in there. Try the risotto! Wine was good and desserts were perfect. Try the patta cotta! Food bill was very respectable.

What an incredible find! Rachel, One of the co-owners, served us for my husband‘s birthday, and she was so lovely and accommodating. I felt like I was sitting at a friends restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and fairly priced. The ice cream is divine, and we will be back soon!!

The owner was serving us and was very sweet and attentive the entire time without being too pushy or insistant. The food was delicious, especially the seasonal eclairs. We were celebrating our three month anniversary and she didn't laugh at us. Instead she gave us the cutest couple award. We will definitely be back for our six months.

Frascati is wonderful in every way. We particularly appreciated the very attentive and personal service, but the food is also fantastic and very fairly priced. We agreed that our meal there two weeks ago was of the best we've ever had. My only bit of advice would be to place some candles on the table for ambiance. Other than that, it was perfect. Highly recommended!

Food and service were great as usual. The owners are so welcoming and appreciative of our business. I look forward to the time when there's full capacity allowed as the space between table does not make for the warmest environment - not the fault of the restaurant owners as they need to follow protocol.
