Steeped in tradition, nestled at the foot of the Alps, and bordered by Austria, Slovenia, and the Adriatic Sea, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy is a region of immense cultural blending, geographical diversity, and idyllic beauty. Historically found throughout Friuli, frascas were friendly and informal gathering places, destinations for farmers, friends, and families to share a meal and a bottle of wine at the end of a long day. Frasca, the creation of Master Sommelier Bobby Stucky and Chef Lachlan Makinnon-Patterson, offers a taste of this beauty, culture, and hospitality in the heart of Boulder. Our shared passion for Friulano cuisine and fine wine is reflected in our exquisitely prepared fare and a comprehensive wine list boasting over 200 varieties. Our seasoned staff is here to ensure a memorable evening with meticulous attention to detail, expert wine pairing, and extensive knowledge of our ever-changing menu. Warm, welcoming, and always gracious, Frasca is the perfect place to enjo
