Ambiance is lacking. Waitstaff is helpful; very noisy; food is blah. They do get you in and out to get to your concert.

Nice dinner here tonight and we sat on the front porch which was so nice on such a warm evening. Arugula salad was delicious, Chicken Marsala was very good, salmon was excellent, lasagna was wonderful, the antipasta appetizer was good, and the linguini with white clam sauce was rich, but super tastey. Too full for dessert, but they all sounded... More

The food is creative and delicious. Ambiance is warm and informal; service is friendly and the price is moderate. Italian fare isn't my favorite but went here twice during this 5 day visit because we liked it so much.

We stopped for dinner at Frankie's Ristorante Italiano in Lenox and overall, had a very good experience. The parking was a little difficult, so make sure you give yourself enough time to find a spot, especially on concert nights at Tanglewood. The restaurant is small, but homey and cozy. I liked the interior set up- it uses the space well... More

Dined here with friends and we were seated in a booth in the back room. The room has red velvet covered walls, low lighting and photos of famous and infamous Italian people. Our server was very friendly and we ordered a couple of good, reasonably priced wines. After house salads we each enjoyed our dinners which consisted of Spaghetti Bolognese,... More

My wife and I cook a lot of Italian and are usually skeptical about Italian restaurants. But Frankie's exceeded our expectations. Great staff and food. Not rushed, treated like we were regulars though it was our first time there. Will be back.

We had supper here in July 2014 on a Saturday evening. We tried to make 5"30 reservations but had to settle for 5:00 since they were already all reserved. It is very popular. I had the Penne Vodka Sauce and it was excellent. The pasta was al dente and the sauce delicious. It was also a very hearty serving. My... More

. . . On a 5-point scale. Some things were a "5" or excellent like the Zucchini Fritti (very thin zucchini sticks with a great beer batter) (photo) and our server, Justin was top notch. On the other hand, the Caesar Salad was a "3.2." Unfortunately, our entree, Chicken Marsala, was a "2.8"at best. The chicken cutlet was somewhat tough... More

Frankies restaurant is located in the center of Lenox. It was a warm summers evening in July so we requested a table on the veranda and were shown to a pleasant corner table. There was a good ambiance and despite the restaurant being busy the service was efficient. My partner and I both lovers of good pasta chose "Franco’s Famosa... More

Hello, First of all thank you for your honest review. I am sorry that you were disappointed with our lasagna. I was unfortunately not there that night and I don't know if you let know our management that you were disappointed because we would have gladly taken it off your bill as I want all of my customers to enjoy...
