what a great place.
the food is fantastic. everything we chose (5 of us) tasted absolutely great and true to the Sicilian cooking. My favorites were the tartare of tuna and prawns and the octopus.
Good wine list with section of Sicilian wines and some from other Italian regions and France. attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff (Simone thank you). Relaxed atmosphere. Nice decor. We were all impressed and highly recommend this restaurant. We will go back to Turin (amazing town) and to this place.

Even if you had a big, big appetite you might struggle with the generous portion size at this delicious Sicilian fish restaurant. Be prepared to share!
We had some delicious pasta dishes. The menu translation was a little off - we weren't complaining as prawn turned out to be lobster! Had some delicious pasta with a pistachio sauce, then shared the stuffed squid, They kindly plated this separately for us and two plates each with a gigantic and perfectly cooked squid with pine nuts appeared. We said we'd only ordered one portion, and they confirmed that was one portion! Lovely food, friendly staff...come hungry!

We were with a group of 11 and had a set menu with wine. The courses are honest and abundant, how it should be in Italian restaurants. Good atmosphere, professional service and an impressive wine list with a broad choice of excellent Sicilian wines. Don't leave the Canoli for sure.

We had a meal at Frato with a group of eight. The menu had a large variety of food choices and a good wine selection. I had the grilled octopus as a starter and it was outstanding. One of the better octopus dishes I have had. For the main course I had the seafood pasta which was very good as well. The service was good and we all enjoyed our meals. I will return in the future.

The restaurant is very pleasant and the service was excellent but the food was boring and bland.
We had starters of raw fish, sea food mista and sardines - all was beautifully fresh but equally boring. There was no sauce and little taste.
For main course we had the sea bass - branzino - again lovely fresh fish but with no sauce and utterly tasteless, The tuna was cooked pink but the broccoli was overcooked and again overall the meal was generally dry and tasteless.
We left without ordering desert as at that point we had had enough - and spent 200 euros on a pretty tasteless meal.
I am sure there are lots of other restaurants that would be cheaper and much tastier in Turin.
