Delightful meal in a cozy atmosphere

I had a wonderful meal at Frankies. We were a group of eight, but the food kept coming and the service was excellent. The tiny clams were a wonderful starter, and the main course was delicious. I ordered the veal picatta, very light and lemony. The potato side was a layered cut caserole, very... read more

We sat at either a very small booth for 4, or very large booth for 2. Either way were small so it worked. The bread... More

Great place, the food was very Italian, very good. The wait staff was very responsive, and didn't 'intrude' in our space. Great drinks as well.

It was good but not exceptional. I may be a hard reviewer but I call them the way I see them. Nothing exceptional but I guess living in a small community one may think this is exceptional.

Excellent Italian cuisine. Gluten free entrees are served seperatelyto avoid cross-contamination. Once GF order is placed, all servers are aware.

From the atmosphere to the food (and oh the dessert!), Frankie's is about comfortable and enjoyable Italian American cuisine as it should be. Black and white photos line the walls as you enjoy a huge array of delicious options, all served in giant portions (great for leftovers). You can also sit outside on the deck in nice weather. Go in... More

This is a no frills type of restaurant. Booths or table and chairs. Seats and benches have no cushioning so no too cozy. My appetizer of clams and main course of eggplant parm were really delicious! We would return for good home cooking! Servers know their menu. Get a bootle of wine and enjoy the enening. Prices very reasonable.

We ate here on a recent vacation. Wait staff was good, and the food was very good. I had veal piccata, which was delicious. My husband had veal Marsala, which he also enjoyed. Comfortable room and an overall pleasant experience.

After a wonderful afternoon at Tanglewood, we ate dinner at Frankie's. It was a warm evening and we enjoyed our meals al fresco on the nice wide porch out in front of the restaurant. The wine list was lovely and we were quite pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the depth of the menu. The sauces were... More
