There are many really good cafes in Frome which is truly blessed in this regard but this one is special for the food and most of all the fun. You have to walk up Catherine Hill to find it at the top but that only...More

We turned up in Frome not realising that many cafes close at 5pm and we arrived here at ten minutes to. However, the lovely Italian lady offered us some refreshment despite being in closing-up mode. We havd very tasty toasted baguettes. The tomatoes and basil...More

We have been going to Loredana's for several years now and every time we go we are greeted as long lost friends, which in fact, we have become. The atmosphere, the service, the food and most of all, the coffee is to die for! Everything...More

Have yet to dine here but several people have told me it's excellent. Loredana is a great cook: that at least I can testify to having sampled her delicious home-made biscuits. The espresso is great too.

I try to be constructive when I write reviews but all I can think is that the current owner should sell up and give someone else the business. We just dropped by for a coffee and cake as we had been there a year or...More

Wonderful atmosphere, relaxed with a friendly buzz, fantastic staff, food, coffee and cake. Worth walking up the steep hill for, worth coming back to Frome for!

Popped in for a coffee and a cake, really nice little place. The coffee was excellent and the cakes were amazing. Pleasantly surprised when we got the bill. We will return to try lunch one day, overall can't fault it.

This is real Italian coffee, to kick start your day. The Sicilian lemon cake is to die for and the hot chocolate is dreamy. The relaxed decor makes you feel at home

Small venue - full but not uncomfortably so. Great buzz. Simple, authentically rural Italian, superbly flavourful food. Friendly and attentive but not intrusive service. Well paced delivery of a thoughtfully balanced succession of six sensibly sized courses. A really relaxing, fun evening and great value.

A very disappointing meal. No prices either outside or on the menu. Food appeared to change at the whim of the owner / cook. No style and distinctly lacking in flavour. Very basic Italian food which most people can prepare at home.
