Always amazing!

I've been going to this place for years. It's the best pizza I've ever had anywhere and is always amazing! Same pizza and taste now as it was 10 years ago. I'm always ordering pizza from this place. It's one of those places that if your lucky enough to know about it then you just don't use any... read more

Well, what can I say ! Another wonderful meal in a down to earth place...... it's like going to a friends house - and they cook you a fab meal..... I'm a good cook and I'm quite picky. I couldn't decide what to have, so our waiter suggested to have half and half.... Fantastic - I got both my fave... More

Visited Franks after having read all the great TA reviews. We finally found it tucked away on a street corner in a residential street off the Rockingham Road. From the outside you'd never guess what delicious food & fantastic homely atmosphere awaits inside. Decor is simple, clean and tidy however it's the warmth of the welcome & happy chilled homely...

Little variety of choice on menu. Does not accept card payment. Hard uncomfortable and wobbly chairs. Place looks like an old social club. Pizza was burnt and with inedible crusts and little tomato purée so quite dry. Been here a few years ago and it was lovely suggested to come with my boyfriend but wish I had stayed home and... More

We love Franks! Been a few times. The latest was an excellent visit! The food is really good. In a little side street restaurant that you could easily miss. Once inside you will find a great quirky little venue with mismatched seats and tables and a lovely little bar. It all adds up to make a cracking atmosphere. But the... More

Family owned and run Italian cafe in the backstreets of Kettering. Bustling and cheerful atmosphere. Great pizzas, pasta and Italian wines. Bottled Peroni served without a glass sums it up really. Good, honest food and drink, no nonsense service and a 5/5 hygiene rating. Well worth seeking out if staying in Kettering and the taxi drivers all know it. Great... More
