This restaurant is right off the main street in Winooski. It's not that big but we went early and had no problem getting a table. The place filled up a little later. Looked like a local favorite. Very friendly staff. Food was served nice and...hot. Nice size portions. Quality of the food was good.More

In all the years that I've traveled to Winooski with my husband (who grew up there), I've never eaten at Papa Frank's. We had a hankering for Italian and it was suggested by my in-laws. We put in an order and I went to pick...it up. WOW! What large portion sizes. Fantastic. The food was delicious! I got ziti. My kids shared a pizza. My husband enjoyed some of all and a salad. We have leftovers for days.More

On our drive from NY to Quebec City, we took some time to see VT. Finding this place in a small town neighborhood was a wonderful surprise. Garden salad and garlic bread to start.....both excellent. Really super. Followed up by baked ziti, on our waiter's...suggestion, and a side of broccoli. Really good Italian food. And the place was packed on a Monday night.More

This is one of those places where you just feel comfortable eating. Though it's not the best pizza in the area, the atmosphere and food are pretty good. Just a nice place to patronize.

We ordered for delivery. They gave an time estimate for delivery when the order was placed and then called with an earlier update. The food arrived exactly when they said and was hot. The portion side was large enough for two meals. For my taste,...the tomato sauce was a bit bland. It was not anything special but a solid, dependable comfort meal.More

The servings are very generous. We always look forward to ordering an extra dish of garlic. The menu is quite varied. The service is quick.

We stopped in for light lunch. The garlic toast, Cesar salad and antipasto salad were more than enough and certainly hit the spot! Waitresses were extremely pleasant as well as efficient. Surroundings are old school but in a charming way with character. We will stop...back for a dinner when we are back in town. The entrees looked and smelled delicious!More

a proper 'locals' restaurant - well off the traditional tourist areas. We went here for evening meal recently while in the area. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced, staff were very attentative (but not overly so) and if we lived locally we would be...there very regularly...More

After arriving in Winooski after a long drive, then facing some difficulties with our home away rental- we were exhausted. Too tired to go out again for some groceries or hitting a restaurant - we called Papa Frank’s for a take out pizza. It was...a two minute walk and honestly seriously good pizza! Sauce was very good, and the crust was perfect. They offer pasta dishes too.More

We were twice during the same weekend. First time, we tried the parmigiana and the cheese ravioli. Very good. Second time, we went for a pizza. Gorgeous. Really. Believe me, it was the best pizza we ever had for many years, even in Europe! Do...not hesitate at all! And do not believe the bad reviews, they seem outdated!More

At the end of the day on a Saturday evening, we happened upon this gem of an Italian eatery. The portions are large and there is no skimping of ingredients. The ambience is friendly and full of locals and those visiting the area for the...first time like we were. There was no wait for a table when we arrived but there was a wait for a table soon after arriving. The service was awesome and the food delivery to our table was surprisingly quick based on the number of people coming to pick up their orders at the counter. We very much enjoyed this place!More

Arrived with my family of 4 the waitress was flustered from the start. After delivery of our drinks she tried to deliver us food that was meant for a table in the corner. After a little delay she tried again to deliver food to our...table that was meant for us. Attention to detail was just not there as usual.More

Located in small street just off main square in vibrant neighborhood with many interesting restaurants and bars. Unassuming in appeareance but great in food, service, and setting. Our lasagna and stuffed shells Florentine were excellent with terrific tomato sauce and rightly aldente pasta. Garlic bread...(included with dinner entrees) and outstanding tiramisu nicely book- ended the meal. House chianti was generously poured and fine for the food. Prices very reasonable and service prompt, friendly, and attentive. An excellent place for family with kids.More

We love this place! Very quaint and authentic! The best spaghetti and meatballs I have ever had. The prices are more than reasonable! We go here every chance we get. Every server we've ever had have been excellent. The only thing I would like to...see is, for the restroom to get a facelift.More

Very good food and service. My eggplant Parmesan was tasty and hot, hot, hot. The decor is late 40’s early 50’s with wooden floors and linoleum tablecloths. Warning! The prices haven’t changed. Our tab with a Caesar salad, two entrees and a half carafe of...wine was about $35. A delicious bargain.More
