Frascati is a Mediterranean style bistro, located in one of San Francisco’s most desirable neighborhoods – Russian Hill. When a guest walks through the door of Frascati, he or she is initially treated to a friendly and comfortable dining room. Frascati encompasses a truly European aura, but is also a cozy, San Francisco neighborhood bistro. This tri-level restaurant features warm colors, high ceilings, antique light fixtures and street views of cable cars clanging up and down Hyde Street. The natural light and energetic atmosphere all convey a lively spirit.

Our cuisine is inspired from the Mediterranean coast and has strong Californian influences. The menu shifts frequently to utilize the best and freshest ingredients any season has to offer. Also, we pride ourselves on all of our house made desserts and ice creams.

Of equal importance, Frascati has become known for having an eclectic wine list which nicely complements the food.

    We always enjoy Frascati. Our waiter, Dario, was perfect. Good wine knowledge, friendly, and just the right level of attention. A few differences we noted this time: bread basket not as varied as sometimes, gnocchi appetizer was delicious, but the gnocchi size was larger. All in all a very good meal and experience. We look forward to next time!

    Splendid service! So-so food. To start, the whole order must be placed at once. Though, to be fair, there was ample time to enjoy the appetizers. The seashell 'fettuccini' plate is a mix of different pasta, and nothing that will blow your socks off. The restaurant is very dark, hard to find the seashells and what's on your fork. I'm told the linguini was also so-so. It's loud, at least upstairs. Hard to have a conversation. And disappointing selection of Italian deserts for an Italian restaurant. The service, though, good luck finding nicer folk.

    I love this little neighborhood place. Very warm atmosphere, great service, and very tasty food. Reasonably priced wines, and they don’t give you a tiny 4oz pour like other places. Just a really great local feel.

    I have some dietary issues that are hard to accomodate but I put that in the notes when I made my reservation and these people accomodated it perfectly. The food and the service was excellent. It gets busy around 7 pm on a Saturday night so keep that in mind. I would highly reccomend this restaurant.

    The food is exquisite. We had the gnocchi and calamari to start; tender and flavourful and portions were generous. Beautiful presentation. Our mains were the salmon and risotto. One word: delicious. Wow…bravo to the chefs and kitchen staff. The service is beyond excellent…they made you feel like family. The ambiance is romantic…picture soft lighting and the occasional cable car pass while you dine. Loved every moment to the strawberry sorbet. Thank you and Bravo from Canada!!!

    I didn't want to finish my last bite of the gnocchi because I didn't want it to end... Asides from the amazing food, this place is perfectly located in Russian Hill with the cable cars going by. A true quintessential San Francisco restaurant!

    Came here for my anniversary and we chose the place because it looked romantic in pictures and it lived up to that. We requested to sit on the balcony and it was very intimate. The staff was so kind. The food was phenomenal. I don’t usually get roasted chicken at restaurants because it can easily be made at home, but this was so flavorful I couldn’t recommend it more. Finally, the best part of it all was the peach and blackberry cobbler… I am still dreaming about it. Definitely will be coming back!

    We are not CA. residents but had eaten here at least three other times including one very special event; again another wonderful meal. Overall experience dampened by a table upstairs under a slanting roof which was awkward and certainly made our waiter work very hard, but quite admirably; several tables in the center of the space and even downstairs were never occupied during our visit (0730 PM to 0900 PM). Nevertheless, would always go back, perhaps requesting a more suitable seating.

    We have eaten here on our anniversary for years. Not just a tradition, this is a great place and romantic without being pretentious. Reserve for 5 pm when they open and get there a few minutes early if you want a window seat! But that doesn't really matter. We love this place.

    We liked the location and the overall ambiance. We also liked our waiter. The bread the the tomatoes that were served were delicious. My mom had the fettuccine bolognese which were good however there was too much sauce. I had the flat iron steak with the polenta. I would have liked it if the food had been hotter. It arrived tepid and the polenta was lumpy. I was expecting the meat to have a grilled look instead it was soft with too much oil on the dish. The asparagus soup we both had was good and hot considering we asked for it to be extra hot when served.

    This is a Russian Hill find! We were greeted by the owner and made welcome. Our server was engaging and knowledgeable and the food delicious! My dinner companion claimed her pappardelle was the best she had ever eaten…the noodles were really thin and the Calabrian chili sauce delicious. My fettuccine was too. She did plan to eat all her cobbler, but did…and I thoroughly enjoyed house made chocolate mint chip ice cream. (They sell pints of the ice cream to go.) We will return…it was a wonderful experience! Can’t wait to share it with my husband and friends!
