Great recommendation from my fairygodmother!

Went to Frankies on suggestion from a local (who picked up her own meal while we were there) as an option for our small wedding dinner. We both had soup (yum!) and the hubs had the eggplant with a fabulous marinara - and I had the black and blue salad which was amazing. I can only imagine dinner... read more

My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant by accident, and boy were we glad!!! The staff was wonderful and the food was better then my mom's homemade cookin, which isn't something i say often. Food prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity you recieve. I wish this restaurant was in my hometown. It would be everyone's favorite.

Frankie's is one of our regular favorites. Full bar with reasonably priced drinks. Good food and good service. I especially like the shrimp Fra Diovalo.

I read the previous reviews before trying Frankie's Italian. Despite the one bad review, I went! I'm so glad i did. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The bruschetta was excellent as was the meatball and manicotti. I found the servers to be most accommodating and friendly, yet not hovering. I will return for the dessert soon. Because... More

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

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!

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
