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

The food was bad. The service was worse. The decor should have rung alarm bells. I will never go back.

Best not so secret in Townsville. Authentic italian food and the atmosphere is perfect. The service is great and the pricing is so affordable.

Everything we've tried here was great! The servings are huge and they are generous with their side dishes. I always get their special parmi and I always end up having a take away as its just too big! But don't be fooled, the taste was not compromised.

The interior was nice enough, the atmosphere was pleasant, the service was friendly, the only real problem was with the pizzas we had - nothing special, fairly bland-tasting and the base was waaay too thick. Certainly not what you would find in Napoli, though obviously Frank prefers it this way.

This restaurant has been fixture in Townsville for years. In the 1980s it was known as Pizza Vesuvius and was a popular haunt for uni students with big appetites and small wallets. Having not ventured in for at least a decade , I returned recently with my son and was pleased to see it still has that warm and unpretentious... More

A good feed, if a little noisy. You can't complain about the menu, it's extensive and reasonable. Good variety of drinks and deserts are available, keep in mind that if you're not hungry don't go, the servings are huge.

Pasta was good. Pizza was flavourless. Steak was overcooked. Sauce was not bad. Service was pretty good. Paying is a drainer if you want to split bills. One word... batatus (potatoes)
