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

Wow! I knew when I saw the Italian flag flying outside that I would be in for a treat! Frankie's was a great pick for down home Italian cooking. I started with the Zucchini Fritti (fried zucchini sticks) which were amazing! Main course was Chicken Picata...lemony goodness! For dessert, House Made Tiramisu... Delicious! Service was very friendly and prompt. A... More

Great Italian food with lots of flavor. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars if because you shouldn't go near them during Tanglewood season, long waits and service suffers.

Frankie's is a friendly, casual restaurant with a nice variety of menu options. They have ample indoor and porch seating and it is clean and well-maintained. We had the chicken marsala, chicken parmigiana and pasta bolognese with house salads. All meals were excellent, the service was friendly and attentive, and it's reasonably priced for the area. If you like Italian... More

Right on the main street in Lenox, it's easy to miss though. We had excellent pasta, good service, and a reasonable price. Other restaurants in Lenox get more publicity, but this is a great option for hungry diners. It's worth seeking out.

We were thrilled to be able to get a reservation for 10 of us and that Frankie's actually phoned, the week of, to confirm the time and final number for dinner. Some really nice salads to start and we had one each of the specials, Salmon and Lamb chops, while the rest of our party chose other dishes. All were... More
