Lovely restaurant with a nice menu. Long list of specials and I wish they would either print them out or have them visible some where in the restaurant. The tables are close together and the noise level is a bit on the high side but not unbearable. We were a party of 4 and we each ordered different appetizers and... More

We were four at dinner and all four meals were outstanding. The rigatoni with short ribs was the best we have had. The shrimp and arugula salad as appetizer was phenomenal. The snapper oreganata was perfectly prepared. The service as always was outstanding. It is absolutely our favorite LI restaurant. The only negative is the parking lot is small but... More

On top of being hard to find, the parking lot in this small strip mall is too small. Thank goodness they have valet parking. However the best way to approach the restaurant is from the west. On a very busy street and the lot gets jammed up and the valet has to park your car offsite. Once inside, your troubles... More

I had not been to Franina's for years and years, partly because parking is so difficult during the day and I seldom get out this way any more in the evening. Went for lunch today and the food and service were absolutely excellent -- exactly as I remembered them when it was one of my favorite restaurants for dinner. What... More

This is an authentic Italian Restaurant. The food is awesome and the service is second to none. Good selection of wines but the prices are quite high.

Great food, attentive service and pleasant ambiance. My only negative was their extensive wine list did not offer a single Italian red under $50. I found that upsetting. And that disappointment is how the dining experience began.

We went here with another couple for dinner on a Sunday afternoon. The place is small, but very classy. The food was amazing. You can order pasta dishes, 1 small portion or big portions. We all order different pastas, ( small portions) all all were very good. My favorite was the pasta with the ribs. Delicious sauce! We all order... More

The food is outstanding, albeit a bit pricey--veal, chicken, seafood, pasta dishes etc. with Sinatra music playing in the background, The night we were there with 3 couples it was busy and service was very slow, but nicely done. Parking is jammed by Valet in small strip mall.
