Completely enjoyed, the welcoming, the service, the food, and their ability to serve the beautiful, elegant, authentic, timely, hot dishes, on an extremely busy Saturday, at prime time! We completely enjoyed the gnocchi with wild mushrooms and truffle oil, The spinach ravioli in sage nut butter, with golden raisins… my friend thoroughly enjoyed the homemade meatballs, and the authentic Roman style, rigatoni in tomato sauce with eggplant and basil. The hostess, Kirsten, was so kind to us, and our server Cristiano, was just the best! High kudos to this wonderful Italian restaurant, with two more sister restaurants in the city! We will be back!

Neighborhood Gem! We loved it. My mom and shared a gnocchi appetizer and it was delicious. I don't know what they did to those mushrooms in the dish but we couldn't stop talking about it. My dad got the steak and he was even impressed. He said it was cooked perfectly. The service was top notch and it was charming and quiet inside for a wonderful dining experience. A must try.

This is a place to go for food.
There is no ambiance, just simply superb food.
The wait staff was great.
A place to put high on ones list of "must go back another time"

An Italian dinner to rival a restaurant in Rome was our delicious surprise when dining at Fraschetta tonight. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the home made offerings and specials. The focaccia dipped in flavorful olive oil was to die for. Our entrees cooked to perfection will assure our visit again soon..Definitely a dinner to remember!

Food great. Our server forgot to bring bread and service was much slower than usual--not a problem, however, as we were with an old friend and wanted to take our time.

I had such high hopes but we had a less than desirable server. We had to remind him 3 times for the bottle of Pellegrino that we ordered. When it was time for our dessert My friend asked to not have ice cream with her chocolate cake as she is lactose intolerant and indeed her dessert came out with ice cream and then we had to ask for spoons to eat our dessert.

The food was good but with the service that I received I'm not sure that I would go back.

Loved our dinner - but the checkin process was a bit odd. We had a reservation but didn’t really seem to matter! Service once seated was incredible and food was amazing! We had the mushroom pasta, lamb shank and shared apps! Wonderful meal

Osso Buco was a winner. Prices are moderate. A BYOB, so bring your own alcoholic libation. Menu a bit limited but shows creativity.

Great evening. Dinner on a Tuesday with friends so the service was very intimate and impeccable.
Revamped menu was awesome and the food presentation was well done. Everyone’s meal was delicious!
And the fact that it’s a BYOB makes this restaurant a must try for anyone who hasn’t been there yet!

The pappardelle my wife ordered was reheated from its preparation sometime before. The pappardelle had merged, from the reheating, into a rather tasteless mass. I had pasta in my cafeteria at college that was better.

Much more than your average neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was suddenly high-quality but very interesting. The gnocchi was more like a gourmet mashed potatoes and mushroom. Everything was fresh and the sauces were great. Certainly will go there again soon.
