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.

Excellent food and service, great main line dining option. Only comment is that noise and volume of the dining room was high, but did not detract from the overall experience.

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.

Never got to eat. Had 7PM reservations, arrived on time and was told that it would be at least 40-45 minutes until they had a table available. What...? We have a reservation. Sorry, I know this happens a lot...you’ll have to take that up with Open Table. But I’ll call you when your table is ready. Asked to speak to the manager....sorry, the manager is not here. Called Fellini Cafe down the street...Sure come on down and we will find a table for you. Had the best meal there and owner was amazing! Don’t waste your time at Frectwhatever, it’s just another bougi main line snob stop.

We don’t usually go out to dinner on a holiday weekend but we’re glad we did! We didn’t feel rushed and the atmosphere was romantic. Our server was new but she did a good job. Our steaks were deliciously juicy and the deconstructed cannoli was the perfect dessert to end the meal. We wish we’ll.during the pandemic; hang in there!

My wife and I had a fantastic dining experience. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner with our entree's hot from the kitchen. The atmosphere was upbeat and busy which was great to see this time of year. We felt very safe inside the restaurant with everyone keeping their distance and wearing a mask when getting up for their table. The service was incredible and would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking to head out and have a terrific time at dinner.
