Ok, my fault, on my birthday, I didn't book a table for six people at 6.45pm on a Friday evening :O But I sure love this owner and their staff. They managed to sort us out on a table that was needed to be ready for a booking at 8.00pm so we needed to be away by 7.45pm. We ordered... More

Food was fantastic and very reasonable. We had the carbonara and the pizza stagone. Both were delicious. The staff were fantastic and was great to see how was all run by family even the tiny chef and old pizza man, head of the family still cooking. Has not changed in the 20 years since i last went.

We had not visited Franks for over 20 years and we were looking for somewhere tonight go for a quick bite to eat on New Years Eve without inflated prices.

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

If you want good honest Italian food Franks is the place to visit . Franks is located in a back street in Kettering . Franks is a word of mouth restaurant. So many people have spoken of this hidden Gem . We visited one Thursday , I had booked . I was glad to have reserved our place as Franks... More

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
