Amazing pizza joint! Laid back surroundings and welcoming staff start the making of a great evening. Food is amazing. We've been going for 10 years and never been disappointed . Muscles in Tomatoe, garlic and chilli are fab, and the Alla tartara Pizza is just scrumptious. Carbonara is the best we've ever had anywhere. I always leave having drank too... More

Don't come here If you want tablecloths or want to pay with a debit/credit card. Do come here for Friendly staff Reasonably priced drinks Freshly prepared tasty food (Salads.Antipasti,Pizzas and Mussels) Relaxed atmosphere This was our first visit, but will be back to try the pasta.

This place is a gem. Beautiful food and excellent service. Pizza as good as I've ever tasted. Sambucca flowed just a little too well. An authentic Italian in Kettering that's not to be missed. Will be back

We ate at Franks last night, after having been recommended by a friend. On the outside it doesn't look much, but the food us amazing. The pizzas are particularly fantastic, among one of the best I have had outside of Italy. We were made to feel very welcome, and will deffinatly be going back!

We've been coming to Franks for almost 30 years...... Little has changed in that time. PIzza's are just the best we have had outside of Italy. Walking through the door is like being transported to an out of the way back street trattoria in Naples. Our Children grew up coming here for birthday treats (one of them having her 18th... More

Franks is well worth the visit! Great value, great Italian home cooking. No deep pan, crispy crust, cheese stuffed pizzas here! Just the best made Italian pizza :) Went as a group of four and we had a lovely evening :) Don't expect posh surroundings, candles, tablecloths etc. Franks is just a hidden gem. The original owner Frank has long... More

only had a take away, so cant comment on sit-in service, but our pizza was wonderful! The service over the phone was good, and pizza was ready to collect quickly.
