Best pizza I had in a long time

Almost as good as the pizza I had in Italy. Best pizza I've had in Townsville by far. Cash only. Tale away boxes provided when we couldn't eat it all.

Wow, such generous portions that we all took home doggy bags for the next day! Delicious Italian, both pizza and pasta.

The Pork Parmi was more processed then chicken nuggets. The Ravioli was as good as coles home brand... no it would have been better to just eat the packet that it would have come in. The sauce was as tasty as eating my own fingernails.

For over 16 years a visit to Townsville always included dinner at Franks and it has never changed in all that time. Amazingly favour filled huge meals, great Italian chianti and honest friendly family service. What more can you ever ask for?!?!

I'm Italian, so when I buy Italian take away it has to be better then what I cook at home (or what's the point right?) Franks is not AS good, but is the best you will find in Townsville.. The lasagna is tasty, pizzas are best to eat there and then to really experience it.... Big downfall, the restaurant expects... More

After 30 years and great memories we were very disappointed when visiting from NSW. Menu was a bit misleading on the Internet: different to when we ordered. Crumbed chicken was dry and the side dish of spaghetti bolognaise was feeble. The $9 salad was nearly all lettuce. Reasonably expensive for what we received.Decor a bit dated and we were sat...

Went to Frank's recently with Italian friends and despite ordering thin and crispy bases to our pizzas (waitress actually wrote that on the order), what was delivered to the table were four thick and gooey pizzas which tasted and looked like they were half cooked. I'm 70 years of age and had a few pizzas in my time but this... More

What's gone wrong? We've been regular Franks customers for years. We love the almost home-cooked tasting meals, the tightly packed tables & chairs, the usually frantic atmosphere with wait staff balancing huge meals on plates to customers tables. Last night we wandered in to a quiet restaurant, ordered, and watched six newly arrived and seated customers give up waiting for... More
