This restaurant is a gem. One of the best places in the country for authentic Italian food. Frankie the owner is always there to insure everything is on target. Have had many meals here and always leave happy. Some great dishes are the meatball salad, Veal Chop any style, Tuna Sicilian and all pasta dishes save room for a great... More

This little place is a big surprise. If you like real homemade Italian food, this is your place! I can't say there was an ambience, but in the midst of our meal, an opera singer burst out a mind-blowing aria. Who knew?

Wonder why so many local think this is a great or even good Italian place... Friends picked this place to meet.. I wish I would have met them anywhere but there. The tables are tight... Really tight... The service was bad... The hostess was rude... I heard her tell another guest she was a partner in this eatery. 1 bathroom... More

I've been coming here since I discovered I lived close by- the food reminds me of my Italian immigrant grandparents cooking. What a great surprise! It's just down-home Italian cooking without fuss and frills. Very casual atmosphere and the tables are tight, so we often take our food home. But, it's soooo good!

My husband and I visited this restaurant two times this week. Both times were amazing. I can be critical when it comes to authentic Italian food. However, the owner, Frankie, works hard to ensure that his food is fresh and of the highest quality. The flounder with crabmeat was very fresh and delicious. The other special, the meat dish with...

Frankie is an awesome host. The food is delicious and the servers are wonderful. A great local place to walk. The "ice cream sandwich" is to die for.

Two of us having trouble getting here, so we were late for reservation. Our waitress was nice enough, but never brought menus. We had seen on their website that sometimes food took a long time to arrive. We were surprised that it happened when the restaurant was basically empty! My friends enjoyed their food entrees. My meatballs had too much... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meal thoroughly. Our first visit to Frankie's Fellini Cafe. We arrived early so it was not crowded yet but became so as the evening progressed. I had a salad and the eggplant appetizer for my entree. Husband had special salad, $13, and ordered a veal chop special. He enjoyed it and it did look... More
