We were greeted right away and the staff was friendly. The ambiance is quite nice here. It has a cozy feel. The lighting is perfect. Our waitress was quite attentive. The food was very good, but the portions were small for the prices. Most Italian places give large portions. This place has fairly high prices (Italian food is really inexpensive... More

We have found this to be some of the best pizza in town. We usually get takeout but have dined in as well. It is reasonably priced and the food is always consistent. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's a great neighborhood gem.

We stopped for a quick bite on Sunday, and ordered a cheese steak sammich, with a side of fries to share, it came quickly and was very tasty. The ambience is very comforting and well designed. The service and the food was terrific!

Never noticed it before in the Tuckahoe Village Shopping center. Next time I am going to get the white pizza. Everyone raved about it. Salad and 1/2 sandwich was good.

I have driven past Frank's West for years and had never stopped in until last night. I heard the food was good and that is the truth. Frank's is a small old style family run Italian restaurant on Patterson Ave. I had salad and a wonderful hot sub. While I was there, I saw dish after dish of wonderful smelling... More

We've tried the other Frank's in Chesterfield and found it best described as "average". Expecting Frank's West to be comparable we found this location to far exceed the original Frank's. The salad was excellent with their homemade house dressing. The pasta was perfect. The sauce was tangy and tasty yet not overly spicey. The homemade bread was also a hit.... More

Some of the best NY style pizza I have eaten. The cheesesticks are really good too for an appetizer.

Service was very good. The San Daniel pizza was great. Don't miss out on the house made mozzarella sticks, they are wonderful. I know that there are some less favorable reviews here, but we had a very good experience overall.
