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.

When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated upstairs and our friends were seated downstairs. It took about 15 minutes for them to realize we were waiting for each other. My husband ordered the special pasta dish. He was given the wrong order. Instead of apologizing, our waiter said “you will probably like this dish better and desserts on me” Big deal!! We didn’t even want dessert

Not your everyday Italien food. This restaurant is very good and has some excellent innovative combinations of flavors. Great fresh pastas as well. Service quite good and not rushed. BYOB an added plus.

Frashetta is a lovely, unpretentious classic Italian BYOB with delicious flavorful food. The squid ink pasta special was spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant for date nights and family dinners.

Wonderful service, charming atmosphere, butI was a bit disappointed by the menu. I expected it to be a bit more interesting especially when it came to their specials. Servings we ample and it is a great perk to be able to BYO. I will definitely try again as we move out of Covid restrictions.

Fraschetta is always a good bet for great food and a pleasant evening out. It is a real "go to" in our neighborhood. The service is excellent, and the staff simply goes over the top to ensure you get everything you need.

Savory dishes and yummy creme brulee! The rigatoni dish was delicious and my husband was happy to have a well prepared leg of lamb. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was just enough energy for the space.

Very disappointing, our waiter was M I A. from the moment we arrived. Didn’t get the order right which was the exchange of truffle fries for mashed potatoes. He was asked to let my dinner date know if sauce for strip steak was gluten free if it wasn’t to come back so we could make another choice. He didn’t. The replacement steak was literally raw and one giant piece of fat.... cook/owner provided no compensation. Because my date had picked through it as server was no where to be found. BTW we didn’t say we didn’t want to pay for it. 2nd time in my life where I’ve complained about service & food.
