Best Mussels Ever!

Amazing food, and even better service. If you haven't tried Frankie's, you're missing out! I am local, and they are my favorite spot-date night, family gatherings, or just girls night out, can't beat the atmosphere. Recipes can be stolen, but the experience and service can't be duplicated!

If I could give a negative review rate I would. The atmosphere is very very dark and it gets very confusing because you have two maybe even 3 servers buzzing around your table and all the gossip between employees is not only awkward but a very unpleasant well trying to enjoy your meal. We used to eat there quite often... More

This looks more formal from the outside but it is a nicer family Italian restaurant. They have pizza and they have the great Italian entrees, like Chicken Marsala, etc. However, the best dessert were the ZEPPOLIS. Ask for the vanilla dipping sauce ( we got that advice from a regular there). These are pieces of fried dough, glazed and powdered... More

We just returned from the most wonderful lunch at Frankie's. We choose Italian food at any opportunity and we hit the Jackpot here. We chose the Sausage and Penne and Strombolilunch specials. Our friendly server brought our drinks and a basket of fresh bread and cubes of chilled real butter. Then came two steaming bowls of their signature Minestrone soup.... More

We had reservations for 6:00 PM on Valentines Day. Arrived at 5:45 PM. Parking lot was very full but we got lucky and found a spot quickly. There were many others waiting for their tables in the small entrance area. Business was very good. We were seated (in a booth...we liked that) about 6:30 PM. Server was very good and... More
