Impressive.

I had a business lunch here a week ago. The food was excellent, the service attentive and the atmosphere was excellent for a private conversation. Frasciati is class act for a quite business or intimate meal. It's conveniently located in the downtown core, just half a block east of Yonge Street. I'll be back!

While visiting from Windsor, myself and another...

While visiting from Windsor, myself and another happened upon Frascati. From the overall appearance of the restaurant, it looked as though it'd definitely be worth a visit. How wrong we were. As we were a younger party (early 20's) we were treated like second class citizens by the wait staff. Service was slow and did little besides spew out the night's specials. Service was incredibly slow in comparison to that received by other restaurant patrons. To start, we ordered the bruschetta, which tasted as if it came from a bulk restaurant food supplier. In other words, not a hint of freshness and the distinct taste of packaged bruschetta. I ordered the veal parmigiana, expecting to receive at least a respectable portion. Instead, my plate consisted of some pasta and three measly and tiny, overcooked veal slices, only one of which actually having melted mozzarella over it. None of the veal shreds were breaded as described on the menu. The dish was drenched in a thin, salty sauce that didn't taste freshly made whatsoever. The sauce was poorly seasoned and had overly strong amounts of oregano in it and tasted nearly as if it were canned. My companion ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, which were apparently palatable. The meatballs themselves were tiny and did not taste fresh at all. Proper spaghetti and meatballs (aka. "Sunday Gravy") consists of a rich sauce with massive, fresh and wonderfully flavored meatballs. One warning sign I should have picked up on was that the wait staff offered pre-shredded/powdered Parmesan cheese. A good Italian restaurant will have the wait staff grate blocks of fresh Parmigiano Reggiano cheese with hand-held graters to a guest's tastes. As a Windsor resident, I've been exposed to truly excellent Italian cuisine due to our large Italian community. I came to Frascati expecting a little taste of home and was sorely disappointed.

A decent italian restaurant. Found the food to be a little basic with the meal I had. The orders I had were literally exactly what was listed, so while it was still good, just not that extra bit of flavour you expect from eating outside of your own kitchen.

The service was very good, although the seating was odd. 3 couple in the place and they squished us all in a corner. The food was good, not disappointing at all. Even though the mushrooms looked to be from a can and not fresh and the garlic shrimp small and previously frozen, the whole meal just seemed to be good. Not very good, but good. If I lived in the area, I would go back, but we went there just before seeing a show at the Canon theatre. A curious place. There must be some signature dishes they do that are out of this world... We just didn't choose them... I guess... Or it's just average.

We went to dinner here for a second time- we are not from Toronto, the first time was with my mom and aunt, this time was equally exceptional. The food- linguine alla pollo, bruschetta, mussels, penne frascati were all perfect. The service was excellent. We took our five year old to dine (the place is fairly intimate and seats a good number)- all the staff was wonderful with him, attentive and accomodating. We will definately make this a must-hit on our trips to Toronto- we go often- mostly to dine and often eat very high - end. We have been very happy with this choice on our visits as it is reasonable but fabulous.

Very cozy restaurant on Elm St right next to the Delta Chelsea hotel. We intially went there because it was so close to the hotel and it looked very inviting from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food and friendly service. In fact, it was such a memorable meal on Sunday, we went back there on Monday night and had the exact same meal!! Would highly recommend this lovely little restaurant.

I booked lunch for a group of people on Monday. I learned later that the restaurant is normally not open on Mondays. Even though, the owner didn’t cancel the reservation. He opened just for us and made it very memorable. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fantastic. I would always recommend this restaurant to anybody.

We thoroughly enjoyed Frascati. It was standard Italian salads and pasta but we found them extremely flavourful. The service was quick but attentive and gave us enough time to enjoy our conversation and company. We had not heard of the restaurant before trying it out and would definitely come again.

Mains and desserts for all were excellent. Had the gnocchi, lamb chops, salmon, chicken masala mains. Cheese cake, tiramisu for desserts. Side dishes were negative distractions for some of us - e.g. too salty potatoes, too hard carrots, too soft green beans.

Yellow pages and Frascati did not communicate well and as a result I got a call on my drive downtown that there was a mistake with my onlin reservation and the restaurant was closed that night for a private function !! Very annoying !! Do NOT trust your reservations using yellowpages!!!

Fabulous meal with just the right amount of food, attentive, friendly service. The atmosphere was small and quaint. We had a quiet table for two by the window but some of the other tables were a little close together and I would have preferred the lighting a bit more muted but overall a great experience. Would definitely go back.

The decor is very outdated and it's a bit musty. The server hovered while we looked at the menu yet only filled the water once when we sat down. I had the veal Marsala which was very salty so a water refill would have been nice. The bruschetta was ok. The pasta was also ok but it wasn't fresh. My father thought his meal was good. He had the chicken piccata. So maybe it's not so bad.

Gnocchi was way too dense, more like a ball of pasta dough. Don't order it. On the other hand the veal masala was excellent.

Went for dinner with my mother and sister following a show at Ed Mirvish. We arrived early, before the restaurant even opened and were welcomed to sit and wait inside while enjoying a glass of wine. The atmosphere was beautiful and the food was the best Italian I've ever had! Fresh ingredients and great portion sizes. Will definitely be back!

The service was fine, no problems. I ordered what I thought was one of the specialties of the house, Penne Frascati but it was really kind of boring.....very good bread though and my dinner guests seem to enjoy their meals which were one of the specials that evening.
