While travelling across the country, we are always on the lookout for decent local restaurants as opposed to the chains. Franklin G's was perfect. No need for dressy attire, a great local hangout where we felt right at home. The house salad is huge and delicious. We should have split one it's so big. My husband's lasagna was even better...

We were there during a busy Sunday evening, and the place was packed. I didn't really care for the closeness of the tables, nearly banging elbows with those seated nearby. The food made the lack of space worthwhile. Three of us ordered entrees, and all were happy, sharing bites with one another. Overall we're glad we found the place, but... More

While part of the Gianino family of resturants, this one has a slight difference in items on the menu. But...just like all of the Gianino resturants, this one has excellant food, large portions, and great staff. You can never go wrong with one of Gianino's resturants!

we enjoy the bar and the patio but the restaurant is just okay. they have a variety of food choices, like beef stroganoff, and it's okay. we'd just rather go somewhere else for food.

Frankie Gianino's offers a great menu and, considering the food portions, the prices aren't bad. If you have a card, you can earn points toward $10 off your next purchase. The card is also good at the affiliates; i.e. Frankie G., Joey B's., etc.

A great place to take family and friends. Very upbeat atmosphere and staff. Music is a little loud and there is smoking, though separate from the restaurant it is open and you can smell it.

Our family started a "Friday Night Pizza Night" when our boys were young. Sometimes we'd make homemade pizzas or order out. We ALWAYS order Gianino's salads for carry out EVERY weekend to go with our pizzas. Frankie Gianino's is in the Gianino Restaurant family. We have been eating at Gianino's since the 1980s. Their food is delicious and the quality... More

This is one of my mine and my hubs fave places! The filet is 'melt in your mouth' good. Hint: get extra bread to soak up the garlic butter sauce from the steak plate! The pastas, yum! The house salad, the bomb! We ordered flash fried spinach (not on the menu as an app, but if you ask, they'll make... More

A lot of times I will call in an order on a weekend because this place is packed and for good reason. The food here is outstanding. It is a great dining restaurant as well. I suggest the chicken modiga, along with their house salad.
