Noa and Yancy made the evening wonderful... through the pandemic and changes that we are all experiencing, Fraschetta never disappoints! Delicious and fabulous!

The food was amazing!! Due to COVID, they had just re-opened; The servers were a bit behind the needs of the table. Although, this is what happens when you are completely closed for almost 6 months. No fault of their own. So, would recommend dinning here, because the food is SO great, and after a few weeks of being opened everything will progress very smoothly : )

We were there on a Friday night with friends. Our waiter Christiano was very pleasant and helped us pick a quiet table! The Sautéed Calamari appetizer was excellent, the beet salad and our pasta dishes very tasty. Also, the Mahi Mahi special was delicious and very well prepared.

Delicious food and BYOB. We enjoyed sitting upstairs as it is quieter. Always make a reservation as this is a popular stop for dinner before going to see a film just a few doors down at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

I love this place. It’s my friendly neighborhood go-to. I took guests who incredibly had never been to Fraschetta and they loved it and will return. I can’t wait to go back. Keep up the good work!!

Very good food, creative dishes. Very close tables in most of the small restaurant, with a fairly high noise level. Fair value for a BYOB. Would return with a larger group and table.

We had a reservation for 4 at 6.45 on a Saturday night.
Before we had removed our coats and hung them, the waitress had opened our wine and put out the menus.
Within a minute she was there to take drinks order.
Within minute two, she recited the specials
By the third minute she asked for orders.
Although the servers were friendly and obliging, we were rushed so obviously that we could not enjoy our conversation without being interrupted.
Also in the determination to turn over tables as quickly as possible, the salads came out without dressing.
The pasta was overcooked, gummy and lukewarm.
The quail was dry and reheated under lamps.

Rigatoni all’s Norma was a decent size and had a fresh nicely seasoned sauce. Arugula with prosciutto was good, although the dressing was nothing special. Had to wait until we ordered to receive bread. Would have preferred it as we decided.

Great food, service, manager was in the dining rm, checking thing.
The only negative would be hard to fix. Cold blast of air when people opened the front door. There is a vestibule, but people would have both doors opened.

First time back in 6 months. Food good but lacking that something that made it very good in the past. Service disjointed, meals came sporadically and one the wrong thing. And, we where one of two parties with 3 waiters. Maybe a bad night but was not enjoyable with the disappointing food and service.

Part of the food was good, the rest ok. The service was great in the beginning, but after entrees were served, it was difficult to get our servers attention.

The place was packed and very noisy when we arrived. We sat downstairs near the door so maybe it was quieter upstairs. The food , as usual , was exceptional. This place has a good vibe!
