“Yummy Italian food!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

They always bring fresh hot bread and a bowl of chopped garlic in olive oil before the meal- we usually inhale this! They have lots of vegetarian options, and they are extremely accommodating about substitutions and additions. I once asked for something that was not on the menu and the waitress said they would make it for me, no problem. They never charge extra for these things (most places in the Keys charge extra for everything!). The prices are very reasonable- especially for the Keys.

“Small intimate restaurant”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Everytime me and my husband want a romantic night out we always go here. It's tucked away in a small shopping center in the beginning of marathon, but worth the find. Wait staff is always accommodating. Don't miss out on the Escagot or their lobster bisque. Portions are generous while prices are not over the top. The chef/owner (frank) is always walking around this small dining room to see how each and every guest is enjoying his home made Italian dishes. Reservations are a must, as they only have about 30 seats. if you ate in the mood for Italian while on an island that mostly serves fish, this is the place for you!!!

“Very good family-run Italian catering to locals”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Had a vey good meal at Frank's - nice menu and very generous portions. Mussels fra
Diablo are a great appetizer - nicely spiced sauce and really good homemade bread. Our entrees were all good - grilled yellow tail snapper, veal chop Milanese and lasagna. Would order any of them again. Very good homemade tiramisu for dessert.

Crowd was local (year round islanders and snow birds) and the place has that feel of family-run pride. Can definitely recommend and would go back.

“Accommodating!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I ate here on December 11. They were completely full inside for the evening and were extremely apologetic. When I asked if we could eat outside they allowed it, even though it was inconvenient as the normal bus boy who waits on tables outdoors was not working for the night. They set up a table for us and Frank brought us a light. Food was excellent and the service was great. Thanks to the staff at Franks!
