We had a late dinner at this place. The staff was very nice and the restaurant is small but very cozy. The food and wine were very good. We had a great time. The location is also amazing.

Charlot is classic Italian in Frankfurt. A limited menu is deceiving. Just tell the Eugenio what you want and ye shall receive. A magnificent spot overlooking Alte Oper. Don't miss it if you love Italian good and find yourself in Frankfurt!!

This Italian bistro is well situated near the old opera. The service is Italian, warm and loud. The entré gemischter salad was ok but the spaghetti pomodoro average and the ribeye good. The sud primitivo red wine was good.
