Frascati Restaurant in Mickleham, Dorking, has a cute, kitschy atmosphere that makes you feel you could be in your grandmother’s house, replete with nick-nacks, well-fluffed cushions on cane furniture and bright tablecloths contrasting whitewashed walls. It’s a beautiful, homely setting – but anybody used to getting this kind of food at home is beyond lucky. The Italian fare served at Frascati on London Road is not traditional in a rustic family sense but traditional within the more refined areas of Italian cuisine. It’s proper first-class restaurant food, with dishes like scaloppine leonardo (veal with white wine, orange and lemon), duck breast with black cherry and succulent bistecca d’Agnello dotted around the menu. Your average Italian restaurant in Surrey has no chance matching Frascati’s elegant seafood dishes and an entire menu dedicated to delicious, traditional preparations of offal, not to mention the exquisite desserts to finish off.
Very warm welcome and excellent value and quality set Sunday lunch menu. Just the two of us, nice to have a relaxed lunch. Try it, you should be satisfied (ignore dated decor).
A superb meal. A generous, attentive waiter and delicious food in a comfortable, homely atmosphere. We will definitely be going back. ‘Old school’ and wonderful!
Homely 'rustic' ambiance with a warm and sociable welcome. Fine wine and excellent tasty 'home style' food, well cooked and presented. Good value for money and, little doubt that I will be introducing this culinary gem to others as well as returning soon!
