Very nice local resturant with friendly, helpful wait staff. Nicely decorated interior with a wonderful selection of dishes. They label thier bottles of wine with a graded scale. Pay for what you drink by the markings.

Nice place, with a lot of young people and couples. Cappuccino was really good and cheap. A good place to hang out with friends.

Outside the beautiful mosaics Ravenna was slightly disappointing to us. That is, until we visited Fricando. We loved the atmosphere, the waiter and the food, especially the desert! This is definitely the best restaurant in the otherwise quite boring city. If you want real Italian food instead of tourist-trap food, you should visit this place. Frans & Dominique

This worked for us after finding the city centre a little bit too twee and self conscious. Our main dishes were a sea food salad and pork with potatoes. They were substantial and well cooked and pleasantly served. We both fell for two glasses of wine each plus coffee and the bill was euros 44.50. We were on the early... More

Found this lovely restaurant while walking to St Vitale. Good food at reasonable cost. Frequented mostly by Italian families which is a good sign. There is a gastro food shop where you can buy traditional food ingredients also at a reasonable cost.

Either primi OR secondi is more than a meal at this lovely relaxed eatery (including a selection of vegetarian food). The house sangiovese is good as is their gnocco fritto. Enjoy!

This place makes the best espresso. Their desserts are also excellent and generous. Just outside porta Adriana. Good fast service. Also a wine bar with food.

Actually, we were looking for a 'posh' place to lunch, but they were all closed. We stumbled upon Fricando, much to our satisfaction. Service was very friendly. The 'primi' / pasta was very good: fresh made, not too fat and very tasty. We ordered (and paid) one secundo, but they gave us all a plate so we could share the... More

Just walk through Porta Adriana or park close by at Piazza Baracca, and you'll easily spot Fricando. Good food and pastries, plus excellent house wines, at reasonable prices. Staff fairly or very friendly, depending on number of guests!
