    We had a wonderful dinner at Fraschetta Friday evening. The food and service were wonderful! We shared the mushroom gnocchi appetizer which was incredible! We both enjoyed our entrees too.

    The servers were friendly & welcoming. The menu is varied & inviting. The specials are always good. Two of us had the swordfish special & it was excellent. We love that it’s a BYOB. The only drawback at Fraschetta is the noise. We could not hear the server when he was explaining the specials. We will be back!

    The woman who seated us I believe is the owner was rude. We asked for a table in the upstairs front dining room rather than in the rear next to the kitchen, and she had a LOT of attitude about it. Waiter was attentive, so service improved. Food was ok- my wife ordered the bucatini bolonese and did not eat it. I ate my weight in bolognese in Bologna in March and this sauce was nothing like the sauce they make… it was watery, the diced carrots were not cooked down, very disappointing. They should’ve offered her another dish, after they noticed she hadn’t eaten anything, but that did not happen. Last time for me.

    As an experience eater in Italy regularly for over 4 decades and as a foodie, I know how to recognize authentic upscale Italian food and this is our local go-to place for that. Since we have explored the menu items over a number of visits, we often go for the specials, sharing one appetizer, one primo, one secondo, and one dessert among the two of us (husband wife couple). We were not disappointed last night, and I allowed myself a repeat lava cake experience.

    sadly, this is not the old Fraschetta. the roasted artichokes were good the Squid was soupy The asparagus pesto was inedible. the potatoes with the fish tasted old and like flakes. Sadly we won’t be going back.

    Absolutely fantastic! The food is made with love! Rose and Luca are very creative chefs! We had a wonderful manager/hostess, who welcomed us, Kirsten, Rose’s childhood friend! Our two servers Cristiano, their son, and Xavier, were loaded with great energy and smiles! We absolutely love this restaurant! The food is absolutely fabulous! We had the salad special with arugula and orange segments lightly dressed and it was phenomenal! We had the gnocchi à la Romana as an appetizer along with a side of artichokes which was delicious! The gnocchi are large balls that are very light and fluffy! Not like anything you have had and they I have truffle oil and mushrooms that are so delicious! Especially loved the Papperdelle ai funghi, in a cream sauce and the all-time favorite, ravioli ricotta with spinach! For dessert, we enjoyed the chocolate lava Tortino, with a scoop of ice cream. We combined the strawberry ice cream and especially loved it! The all-time favorite was the crème brûlée! I love this place and cannot wait to go back! It was just perfect! But especially the love! We really felt welcomed! The place is loaded with happy energy! Like a little piece of heaven! Thank you so much, Fraschetta!! Can’t wait to return!

    Great Service and delicious food. The waiter suggested we split the salad special and it was a perfect recommendation to start our meal. Everything we ordered tasted fresh and delicious. I would say the tiramisu was the best I have ever tried.

    This is easily one of the best restaurants on the Main Line. The food is top quality, always fresh and they are always changing the menu and offering seasonal specials which can’t be found anywhere else. The service is impeccable and all the staff are so kind. The restaurant itself is cozy and a perfect setting for a casual dinner, date night or special occasion. Cannot recommend Fraschetta enough!

    Main courses were excellent and the crab fritter app was delicious. What stopped this from being 5 stars - we asked that a certain ingredient NOT be included in a special salad and that was translated into make the salad with 80% of that ingredient. We were also put upstairs which we would have been typically fine with but we weren’t asked if that was OK and it was FREEZING- the person seating us turned on the heat as he seated us - should have been done before we arrived - this a reservation … no surprise

    It’s a cute BYOB that is almost a great one. It seemed understaffed- while everyone was nice they were running all over and many requests and offers went unfulfilled (ice bucket for wine, sharing plates, cheese for the pasta, etc). The food was good but under seasoned, the meatball was tight, but swerving sizes were good and the options were good ones.

    Amazing service! Small restaurant but BIG on friendly and welcoming staff. 5 of us Seniors who were not able to walk stairs to 2nd floor (did not know to put that in reservation) so 2 gentlemen gave up their table for us! The food presentation and flavors were superb. Noise level very high, tables close together BUT part of the ambience.
