Wonderful service & delicious food. Very comforting atmosphere. Chicken Parmigian was perfectly prepared with a side of spaghetti , also good. My wife loved her cheese ravioli. The dinner includes a dinner salad. We both chose to pay $1.10 extra for their marvelous Caesar salad.

We were blown away by the affordability of feeding a family of four and sometimes five for under $40.00. Frankys cares deeply about its patrons and those who pick up to go orders are treated just as if we were dining in. A beautiful small...More

Only had it once, first time in July 2017. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo but it was a hard choice so many things looked great. Can't wait to try something different very soon

I had the Marinara Lasagna with salad for $16. It was just average. I tried a piece of my brother-in-law's Pepperoni pizza. It was not that good. My brother-in-law agreed with me. I did enjoy the Hahn Pinot Noir for $12. Others in our party...More

Excellent as usual, we normally have pasta, but decided to have the half sandwich lunch special today. We're too busy the next few days for leftovers and we can never finish the pasta dishes. We made an excellent decision. Totally satiated.

Great local place. Go early. We are not big eaters and during the winter like to eat early so Franky's happy hour works great for us. Wine is half off by the glass and there is a pasta special as well as other happy hour...More
