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.

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 found the food to be delicious and the service from the young man was wonderful. He was very personable and engaged us. They took great care not to have too many people in the small space. We would definitely go back!

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.

The food at Fraschetta is always consistently good. They have superb specials that make it fun to dine out at least once a week since there is always something new to try.

The server was outstanding and the ambience is intimate and relaxing.

The service is very on point. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was incredible. I had the bugatini all’amitriciana...classic dish. It was excellent. And definitely definitely get the tiramisu. Over and all the best Tiramisu you will get in the area.

A friend told us to try. We love their center city restaurant melagrano ( a must try)
The evening started with a nice conversation with Rose ( owner). We started taking about Italy.
Could of talked all night.
The food selection was perfect.
Started with a few appetizers...one was fried calamari. May have been the best I ever had.
Cooked perfect.
I had one of the specials and there was four of us.
Every plate was wiped clean...everyone loved their meal.
The deserts were a perfect finish.
I must also mention out waitress was great and everyone who worked there was nice to us.
Highly recommended
It will now be one of our regular spots.

This was the second time I ate dinner there. The first time was great...excellent food and good service. This time, we were on time for our 7:30 reservation but did not have our order taken until 8:15 (only because we flagged a server down), with another 45 minutes until our first course came. My food was just ok, although my companions said their food was very good. I want to give restaurants a lot of slack because they are operating with many Covid related challenges, but I think waiting 90 minutes warrants an apology at least and maybe a free dessert or coffee.

We love this place. It’s a cozy, friendly byob. Servers are attentive and engaging but not intrusive. We have our favorites on the standing menu, but are always intrigued by the specials. I hope they survive the economic downturn of the pandemic.
