We enjoyed dinner at Frankie's with friends and had pizza and wine. The Italian house wine is very good, not necessary to spend more money on "name brand" wines. The pizzas were large and very fresh ingredients. A good time was had by everyone in our group.

Wow! Were we happy we followed a friends recommendation to try Frankies!! This was true, home-made authentic Italian cooking. The chicken parmesan was exceptional as was the linguine with garlic and oil that I special requested. The staff was courteous and professional and the bartender made a great bloody mary.
And the price was great too. Did not expect to find this exceptional eatery in sleepy Maggie Valley but we were glad we did.

We decided to try for dinner after hearing many great things from friends. Only complaint we heard from others was the level of noise as there is a high ceiling with no noise absorbing artifacts.

Our waitress must have been new as she was not able to describe menu items or wines. The place is noisy. We all had different items and everyone was disappointed. I had some house special spicy chicken and it was dry, overcooked and over-rated. The specialty of Frankie?

I would not recommend this restaurant and the four of us have vowed not to go back. Perhaps it was a bad night but I was sorry we finally gave it a try. I will say again that others have liked it but with a personal 4 of 4 saying let's not go back - I thought I would write a review of our experience.

An excellent place for italian food. The service was great,the waitresses came around in timely fashion to check on you and refill your drinks. The prices were very reasonable for the amount of food we received.

We have had some bad experiences at Italian restaurants in the Maggie Valley/Waynesville area. We decided to give Frankie's a try, and we are glad we did. The service was wonderful, friendly and on top of things. The bread was excellant, as was the fried mozzerella. The marinara sauce was to die for! If I remember right, they did not have ceasar salad, which seemed strange to me. I had the shrimp scampi, which was good, but needed more garlic. We did not have dessert, as we were too full. I still love Carrabbas, but if we don't want to drive, Frankies is good.
