Rustic italianino

Franks is an established restaurant, been around for over 30 years, family business, could be a film! do ask for pepper sauce recipe its a secret, so let me know. It's not fancy, just rustic Italian, well priced and will make the whole family happy. Well worth a visit if your in the area.

WOW! If you like a super sized portion, ask for the veal parmigiana with a side salad or spaghetti Bolognese, I bet you have a hard time getting through it. A family owned and run restaurant, we've been going to Franks for the last 20 years, never a disappointment. If you don't find something to your taste here, you're not... More

My husband and I were craving Italian so decided to try out Franks. The service was good, but the restaurant is tired and needing some TLC; faded pictures everywhere, dusty and out dated tables and chairs. They also don't have Eftpos which is pretty old school and inconvenient in this day and age. The wait staff were also having some... More

My family like to eat at Franks whenever we are in Townsville. We love the authentic Italian ambience. Frank always seems to be there - sitting at his table - keeping an eye on things. The portion sizes are great - especially the pasta dishes. The only thing that I was disappointed in was that the tiramisu was not available... More

If you are looking for a big feed that tastes great and isn't expensive, you can't go past Frank's! Never disappointed with the size or taste of the meals. A steak Diane and spag always hits the spot! Cash only though, no cards taken.

I've been coming here for 20 years and have never been disappointed. I always get gnocchi and I'm always satisfied. If you're after good honest food, visit frank's.

Ordered 2 pizzas to take away (Margheritas with mushrooms added). At $16.50 each, one would expect something tasty or just a little more special than the rest. Well I would rather have bought 2 pizzas from Dominoes and paid half the money for more taste! The base was thick and doughy and the very scant topping was placed on about... More

I speak from ~20 years experience having grown up with Frank's Pizza Napoli as a family restaurant. Firstly, the food is variable. There have been times when I was so disappointed we swore never to come again (found a cockroach in a meal years and years ago). But more recently (last 5 years) the standard has improved again. The decor... More
