A waitress at another restaurant in Maggie Valley suggested that we try the pizza at Frankie's. We ate there several nights, and the pizza was as good as the waitress told us it would be. The crust is not thick and is good and crispy. The toppings were very fresh and the pizzas are seasoned quite well. My wife also... More

Great traditional italian restaurant in a surprising location. Everything we tried was great, especially the "MVP" pizza we ordered for an appetizer. We ended up taking Another one of those home for the next day! Service was outstanding, attentive without hovering. Well trained, not afraid to make a recommendation. (I hate it when a waiter says "Everything's good.") We will... More

Please make sure that when teenagers are allowed to handle the seating, you are prepared to wait and wait and wait. Ineptitude prevails when parties of 2 are repeatedly seated at tables for 4 while multiple tables for 2 are left open. I fully understand preferred seating for reservations, but when locals are obviously seated out of order of the... More

Fabulous Italian food. Our table shared three different dishes, manicotti, lasagna, and olive oil/ garlic spaghetti. All were absolutely fantastic. And then the teramaisu! No words to describe it. I actually would order it as take out most nights and have it in our condo. We were there for two weeks so I'm trying to overcome my overindulgence now that... More

Frankie's has been one of my go to places for having out of town guests and also just special occasions. My dear friend from the UK was in town and we met a fellow Brit at Frankie's. The noise was so loud that we had to lean it and shout at each other. Service was adequate at best, polite, not... More

The service is excellent and the food is consistently delicious. It's a great place to eat out with friends or family. The atmosphere is a little loud, so not so... More

We discovered Frankie's last year when we were in "The Valley" and so glad we did! We've had consistently wonderful food and service here. This week I had a half order of the Broccoli Rabe and Italian sausage over 1/2 order of fettuccine. It was so delicious and just the right amount of food. My husband loved the Shrimp Fra... More

We went early and were able to get a table right away. By the time we place our order the place was full. The wait staff was very attentive and the service was excellent. The shrimp and pasta dish that my wife ordered was one of the best she has ever had in an Italian restaurant. Being a carnivore I... More
