My husband and I visited Frankie's Ristorante Italiano last weekend as part of a weekend getaway to Lenox. We had a wonderful evening at Frankie's! It was Saturday night, so it was pretty busy (despite a snowstorm), so we decided to eat at the bar. It made the evening all the better! The bartender was attentive and funny, and we... More

After hearing good things from our daughter who worked for these owners over a summer ago. We died used to stop in last weekend - we did not have reservation but was able to sit down promptly. My spaghetti bolognese was fantastic and my wife's Chicken and artichoke dish was great as well. Our Russian speaking waitress was very attentive... More

We have been going to Frankie's for the last three years every time we are in the Lenox area. The food is amazing (no matter what you order). We have eaten there a few times and it never disappoints. We have brought some friends and now they love it as well. The service is great too. We look forward to... More

We have gone here for dinner for the past three years (each time in November) and it has always been great!! It's off season so they are a little slower and more attentive I'm sure but the food is delicious. I like the fried mozzarella!!

The entire experience at Frankie's is beyond awesome. My wife & I live in CT and we travel circa 90 mins each way when we can to eat here. The staff is warm, friendly and inviting. "The customer is always right" is clearly the rule of thumb. Management has both selected & trained their employees well. The atmosphere & vibe... More

Frankie's is just one of those places that you return to time and time again. It is comfortable, has a very respectable Italian menu and does a good job with preparation and presentation. My highest praise goes to it's wait staff..they re knowledgeable, thorough, efficient but at the same time make you feel like family. In particular, a young man... More

We had fantastic meals (Salmon and Pasta) and the staff was amazing. Our waiter accommodated our 3 (!!) requests for a different table with warmth and grace and even declined the $5 tip we handed him as we moved the third time. When we didn't love the first wine we ordered, he encouraged us to get something else, which we... More

Expensive food and not good. This remains a popular restaurant but everyone who goes there seems disappointed.

One of our favorite restaurants when in the area. The clams are a favorite and the pasta is divine. Good wine list and cozy rooms.
