There's no shortage of authentic Italian cuisine on the Main Line, but Fraschetta stands out. In fact, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Craig LaBan one said that "Fraschetta keeps it authentic in Bryn Mawr." Come to the cozy, intimate restaurant to enjoy dinner and try a taste of the authentic fare.
Start with antipasti like the fritto misto, a combination of fried artichoke, zucchini, and smelts with Calabrian chili mayo for dipping. Then savor a light primi dish such as the pappardelle alle olive, pasta tossed with Gulf shrimp, scallops, olives, and a fresh tomato sauce. If you're craving a larger meal, opt for a secondi entree, such as the braised beef short ribs in a clove-infused wine sauce or the pork tenderloin stuffed with prosciutto and smothered with sage marsala sauce. Fraschetta also offers a $45 prix fixe menu that allows you to enjoy three courses, including dessert, without breaking the bank.
