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.

small family run and long established restaurant that specialise in amazing pizza, and the value for your food here cant be beaten. Me and the family, and friends are regular returning diners. Beats anywhere else locally hands down.

We've been going to Franks for years and usually enjoy it. Its rough and ready, and used to be famous for their no nonsense waitresses who were almost, but not quite, rude. Last tie we visited, about 6-8 months ago it wasn't so good but we went this week and it was back on form. Great Pizza, great pasta and... More

Booked for a group of 14 for my birthday and we had a brilliant night. I think we pretty much stuck to the pizzas garlic breads and anti pasta. We all love the pizzas at Franks... Best in Kettering. Staff were brilliant, friendly and service was great. We were the last to leave but not before they brought complimentary sambucas... More

Franks is the pearl of restaurants in Kettering, tucked down a side street! We always get a little bit lost trying to find it! Interior is very basic and hasn't seen a paintbrush in years BUT I think it works! The atmosphere in the place is so laid back and friendly. Thus is our favourite place to eat and have... More
