“Great dinner experience”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

What a great restaurant. We had such a lovely dinner. Spaghetti with white truffeles. Rib eye with black truffles and parmesan.
One of the best steak that I have tasted and dessert absolutely wonderful Tiramasu.
You are treated as somebody very special from the moment you walk through the door. You never have to wait for an empty plate to be removed, or a glass to be refilled. helpful, without being overbearing.
I would definitely go there again.

“Too expensive for frequent visits”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is a bit of Italy in Frankfurt with Italian waiters, a display of antipasti and a good atmosphere. Like other reviewers I found that the waiters prefer to steer you away from the menu to serve you some speciality but the price issue is always vague and you may be in for a nasty schock at the end of the meal. But even the normal menu is quite expensive.
I find the portions too small, but the quality is excellent.

“This is a fine example of Hessian Italian!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The interior is classic Franko/Italian mid to late eighties, noble blond woods, white tablecloths, waiters in long white aprons and black vests and all in a mix of Italian colours and Frankfurter dialect. Be prepared, not always are the waiters prepared to give you a menu but will want to put something together for you. This is generally a good option but can be a little expensive. Ask for the menu and make your own choice if you feel uncomfortable. The talking behind your back is all part of that Franko/Italian charm.
The food is very good, staple Italian food, great sauces, fresh fish, good beef and excellent salads. Their wine list is solid Italian.

“Greedy”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Was invited to a dinner by a supplier and we were in toal of 11 people. They did not want us to look at the menue du to the place was packed so they offered us a mixed starter of aprox 12 Eur / pers and Fish or Meat for the Main course of 23-26 Eur / Pers. The Starter ended up at 13,50 and the Main at 25-27. Our host had been here before and he asked to be quoted due to they had done the same at a previous time. Now they did it again. The wine the host orderded was out of stock but we were not informed but a wine was served anyway, more expensive and not as good tasting. The food tasted excellent and apart from what concerns the bill the and the wine the cervice was ok. They offered us a free grappa on the house when dinner was finnished, bill came in, we did not tipp anything and they did not serve any free grappa. Will not be eating here again.

I come to FRK about once a year and this is my favorite place to eat. In the West End. Really friendly, great food and excellent Bunello.
