This coaching inn dating to the 16th century is on an old Roman road a couple of miles outside Frascati. The old fig tree that gave the place its name shades the restaurant's charming garden. The dining room has been tastefully renovated, preserving many of its old-fashioned features. The chef prepares typical Roman dishes, among them spaghetti cacio e pepe (with sheep's cheese and pepper) and abbacchio allo scottadito (literally "burn your fingers grilled lamb"). Do not confuse this with the more modern Ristorante Al Fico across the road.
