After reading all of the wonderful reviews of Frankie's, we thought we'd try it to finish our vacation in Maggie Valley. To the owner/manager: First impressions make or break the deal. When one makes a reservation, one reasonably expects to be seated at the arranged time. This was not the case and we were finally seated 20 minutes after our... More

Love this place! The best chicken pacada in the entire world! If u miss the friendliness of your neighbor restaurant combined with a professional wait staff, this is the place for you and your family! When we travel, and come within 50 miles of Frankie's, we make it a point to make a detour to this first class eatery. If... More

We dined at Frankis's last night and had a wonderful meal as usual....we ordered the Surf and Turf, the Lamb chops, and I enjoyed the Pasta with meat balls....all the dishes were very good. I would recommend this restaurant on the food quality alone but to me the dining experience here goes over the top because of the warm way... More

It's rare these days to find a restaurant that seems like perfection from beginning to end. Our waiter, Ben G., has a special talent for serving his guests. We had spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, house salads with homemade Italian dressing and tiramisu to finish off our extraordinary dinner. Thanks Ben for being so awesome.

Delicious Italian food served in Trattoria style. Pizzas are excellent, dont miss the eggplant marinara appetizer. Rosemary chicken wings are roasted in pizza oven and we can never visit w/o an order of them! Great service too!

We have enjoyed Frankie's before but we went with friends and kids for pizza. Some of the best pizza I have ever eaten. Service was friendly and quick.

Dinner tonight was at Frankie’s Italian Trattoria which turned out to be a very nice meal. Although Frankie moved to this location just a few years ago, he has been serving authentic Italian cuisine for 45 years. It shows - the place was packed (but our wait was not long), the service was good and the food was great. If... More

Everyone in our group was pleased with their meal and we had some selective eaters in our party. We had lunch fir the next day with our leftovers. The pizza seem to be a hit, since many of the guest around us ordered it.

Oh. My. For the true love of Italian food, foodies in South Florida must truly miss this establishment. The gravy (if you know Italian food, you know what gravy is) is smooth, has cooked all day, and is prepared with the finest ingredients. The veal parmesan was just that; as it should be. Tender veal, lightly breaded with fresh cheese... More
