After a wonderful afternoon at Tanglewood, we ate dinner at Frankie's. It was a warm evening and we enjoyed our meals al fresco on the nice wide porch out in front of the restaurant. The wine list was lovely and we were quite pleasantly surprised...More

Although we didn't have the best service (we came later in the evening and our waitress clearly wanted to go home), our food was delicious! We have visited this restaurant for the past 4 years and the unchanging menu is authentic and delicious. We got...More

This restaurant even if it was recommended by the hotel personnel did not come close to our expectations. The food was average at best and on the expensive side. Great outdoor deck tiny tables and uncomfortable chairs. Lock of pasta choices, blah arabiata sauce and...More

Our food was very good. Our fried mozzarella and arugula salad appetizers were excellent. Our pasta entrees were good but not particularly special. Although we had reserved an outside table, they hadn't recorded it that way. While a disappointing way to start, they added a...More

So many of the restaurants in Lenox are pretentious and overpriced. You know the drill: small portions, big plates, big bill. Not Frankie's. They serve good food, nice portions, well prepared, but without the frills that boost the price. We had an excellent dinner for...More

This restaurant has been around for a long time, but they sure have kept their cuisine up to date. We had a delicious meal, with obvious care given in the preparation. I really liked their tomato sauce (over pasta). Will definitely return.

We tried Frankie's at the request of our hotel clerk. It has a great setting and I would recommend to others. Unfortunately, during our visit, they ran out of Frankie's Famosa Lasagna, which by many accounts is exceptional. As a result I had the ribeye...More

Questions & Answers
This review really stopped me in my tracks and I'm completely puzzled by it. While it's normal for restaurants to have their 'off' nights, my girlfriend and I routinely make the drive from upstate New York to have dinner at Frankie's. We have always found the quality of the food to be superior and consistent. And their service is attentive. The mandolin-sliced au gratin potatoes are some of the finest I've ever tasted. The deep-fried zucchini (Zucchini Fritti) is a creative and delicious appetizer. Meatballs are soft, flavorful, and memorable; and their Marinara is fresh and simple. All entrees are served with a nouveau flair but with old-world flavors and recipes. I'm a trained chef and restaurant consultant and tend to be a tough customer. I feel this one-star review by Tom M. is unfounded and has other motives behind it. I've been dining at Frankie's since they opened and have always had a delicious meal every time. I know from personal experience how much work it takes for a restaurant to get it right on a regular basis. I can't say that about many places. Keep up the great work, Frankie's. Ci Vediamo Presto!
