The San Jose location on Prospect has closed :( So sad to lose a great Italian, family owned restaurant. The food and service here was great.

I came here to kill time before a movie. We grabbed 2 seats at the bar, ordered beers and pizza. The pizza was delicious! The service was very nice and the restaurant itself seems wonderful. There were a lot of locals there, people that seemed to be regulars. Overall, I think this is a good spot... at least for pizza... More

The menu offers standard Italian selections, but don't miss the roast beef raviolis they offer during the holidays.

We have be coming to this restaurant for years... good and basic Italian food but not great.... On our last visit, we had a short wait before being seated. Water glasses were brought to the table and we then placed our orders. We waited for about 10 minutes before the "fresh baked rolls and herb butter" was delivered to our... More

A couple of times a year, a group of us who have worked together during the last 20 or so years, and most of us now retired, get together and visit during lunch. We have enjoyed this restaurant for our gatherings several times, and it never disappoints. The orders have ranged from great salads, sandwiches, pizza, and pasta entrees, and... More

My family loves Frankie Johnnie and Luigi too! It is perfect for families. Good (not great) food at reasonable prices. The daily specials especially the chicken on Wednesday night are good value but nothing is too expensive. The pizza looks great when I see it and I know they toss their own dough but I've not tried it. The Wednesday... More

FJL's main advantage is staying open late. It's recommend for this. It's fine, hearty Italian food. I need to stay away 8^) !

Okay, have to be honest here. I used to work for FJ&L so I have the "inside" story on this spot. Here is the truth - family ran and ruled this restaurant does have great food and service. One of the best pizzas in The South Bay.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Sam Francisco. It's a few blocks off I85. We had the meatball grinder( hot sandwich) served on fresh made focaccia bread with a nice marinara sauce, french fries and a large salad. It was $10.50 and huge! You can order a half portion also. It was very good. The spaghetti with one... More
