“memories of childhood meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This restaurant from the outside looks like thousands of small italian restaurants . Inside however it is full of all kinds of nostalgia.
The food was a good portion and the seasoning brought back memories of my childhood!
prices were reasonable and the staff very friendly. Wednesdays is $9.99 build your own pasta night. It was very popular!

“Best restaurant in Truro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

It never fails to please. I've eaten there on a regular basis since they opened. Great eclectic decor, lively atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff. If you go, try an onion blossom - they're delicious. I particularly love their pulled-pork sandwhich. Have never had a bad meal there.

“Another Fri. night, another dining pleasure.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

A group of about 10 - 12 ate here and the food is very good and the servers are quick and pleasant. The decour is intriguing and keeps you busy trying to see what all there is hanging or sitting around. Very friendly atmosphere.

“Great food, cozy atmosphere, and phenomenal service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Last night my roommate and I went on a little impromptu trip to Truro from Antigonish to have dinner with a friend. She recommended a place called Frank & Gino's, a restaurant which neither my roommate nor I had heard of before -- needless to say, I wish I had known of it sooner. I am saddened to say that I am moving out of the province in September and will not be able to frequent this FANTASTIC restaurant. The service we received was by far the best I've received in a long time. A cozy, pleasant atmosphere, with a staff that deserves recognition! The food was great, as was the value! The prices were reasonable for the most part, especially when you see the portion sizes and side dishes!

I felt the need to commend the staff and owners of this restaurant on their unparalleled service, and will say one thing: I will DEFINITELY be coming back to this great little restaurant!
